Car Servicing

Servicing proactively maintains your car, reducing the risk of a breakdown. Even if it is irregular, it can help maintain your car's value. At Giraffe Servicing we provide a range of affordable car service packages to suit your needs. Vehicle servicing is carried out by highly trained service technicians and we use parts that match the quality of the manufacturer's original equipment. We offer a genuine alternative to dealership servicing so why pay more?

What is tested during a vehicle service?

A service is a vehicle inspection that keeps your car in a reliable, safe and fully-functioning condition based on guidelines set out by the vehicle manufacturer. The service schedule will recommend specific checks and replacement parts including a car oil change at certain intervals. Giraffe Servicing offers a range of car servicing packages to match your vehicle usage and all include an oil change and filter replacement as standard. For a full list of what is included in our service packages, see our car servicing checklist below.

What do I need to take with me?

Please bring along your vehicle log book so the technician can stamp this once the service is completed. This isn't essential but a service stamp in your log book each time you have you vehicle serviced can increase its resell value and shows potential buyers that the car has been well maintained. If booking a full service, please also bring your locking wheel nut key so that the technician can carry out a full wheel-off brake check.

Hybrid Service

With increasing public concern towards sustainability, and a growing number of manufacturers offering hybrid vehicle options, more and more people are now choosing to go for self charging Hybrid electric vehicles.

As is the case with all motor vehicles, interim and annual services can help to identify any issues with your hybrid car early on, before they become any worse and lead to potentially expensive repairs.

Your vehicle handbook will offer you specific advice on when to service your vehicle but as a general rule we recommend booking a full service every 12,000 miles or every 12 months.

At Giraffe Servicing we perform more Hybrid Vehicle services than any other Independent service centre anywhere in Northern Ireland. With The best diagnostic equipment on the market, your in safe hands with our Hybrid Master Tech Gary, Who has been trained to the Highest level Hybrid Training there is.

We offer both interim and annual hybrid servicing at low prices, making a Giraffe service more cost-effective than a main dealer without compromising on quality.

How often should you service your car?

As a general rule of thumb it is recommended that your car receives a full service every 12,000 miles or every 12 months - whichever comes sooner.

More general check ups, such as our Engine Oil and Filter Change and Interim Servicing options, are also available to ensure your vehicle is kept in the best possible condition. We also provide manufacturer servicing for all major makes and models of vehicle using official manufacturer service schedules to determine when your next service is due and the type of service required.

Regular servicing can help to keep your car running smoothly and identify potential problems early on, reducing the risk of more serious and costly problems in the future. Most importantly, regular car servicing is a fundamental step in helping to keep you and your loved ones safe on the roads.

Is an Engine Oil & Filter Change classed as a service?

While an Engine Oil & Filter Change is a key area of car maintenance it is not classed as a service as it does not include the full range of vehicle checks required to stamp your logbook or to reset your service light. The Engine Oil & Filter Change is a great way to ensure reliable performance and provide you with piece of mind if your service is not due yet. If your vehicle is due a service then you should opt for an interim or full service.

When is my car service due?

Check your vehicle log book to see when you last received a servicing stamp. Your vehicle manufacturer will suggest an appropriate interval or number of miles travelled until your next recommended service in your hand book. Many modern cars feature on-board computers which keep track of when your car service is due. Drivers who own cars with self-diagnostic features like these are advised not to ignore these warning signs even if they occur before 12 months or 12,000 miles has been reached.
