Four Reasons Why You Should Service Your Car

Maintaining your car will help it last longer on the road. We recommend that you have your car maintained on a regular basis at Dells Motor Services, and there are a number of reasons why you should. So, in this article, we’ll go through the top four reasons why your automobile needs to be serviced on a regular basis, and you’ll soon see the benefits.

Do I need a service if I’ve had an MOT?

The first and most crucial thing to remember when considering a service for your car is that it is not the same as a MOT. The MOT simply determines whether or not your vehicle is safe to drive on the road. MOTs usually only alert you to an issue when it’s too late to fix it. Services can help you discover problems before they happen, giving you more time to consider how to handle and fund the situation. 

Money Saving 

Although maintaining your vehicle will cost money, it may save you money over time. Cars that haven’t been serviced have a substantially higher rate of fuel consumption because they aren’t running at their most efficient.

Furthermore, failing to service your car increases your chances of experiencing a breakdown, which can be both costly and annoying if you have to rely on rental cars or public transportation while your vehicle is being repaired.

Improving Car Performance

Even seemingly minor concerns, such as the need for an oil change, can have a significant influence on the quantity of petrol required to operate your vehicle. These facts will be picked up by services and corrected, making the vehicle much more efficient and, ideally, saving you a lot of money on unneeded gasoline. 


The safety of your vehicle and the people inside it is dependent on services. They will detect problems before they become serious. While breaking a critical component of your engine while driving at 70 mph on the highway is extremely dangerous, servicing allows you to find out which parts of your car are wearing out and, if they do break, they will do so in the safe environment of the workshop.
