At Cotgrave Service Station we pride ourselves on our ability to cover ALL service elements for ALL vehicles.
Our service programs follow our very own general format but can be tailored to suit the manufacturers recommendations and requirements for your specific vehicle.
We, unlike all garages, have the diagnostic equipment and know how to deal with your resetting your service and engine management lights.
We operate a small fleet of courtesy vehicles to assist with helping you to plan your day for leaving your car with us. Let us know when booking if you need one. Alternatively we can collect your car.

Manufacturers warranty protected
If your vehicle is within its warranty period then having it serviced with Cotgrave Service Station will keep your warranty completely valid.
The Block Exemption regulation was brought in to allow customers to have their vehicles repaired without invalidating their warranties.
As stated in the Right to Repair Campaign "The Block Exemption Regulation includes elements that give the consumer the freedom to choose where they have their vehicle maintained without negating manufacturers' warranties, as long as original parts or parts of matching quality have been fitted by the repairer. To enable repairs to be made, the vehicle manufacturer under the Block Exemption Regulation should make technical information freely available to the independent market."
So what does this mean for the consumer?
Basically it means that providing the independent garage you are using, such as Cotgrave Service Station, use original parts or parts of matching quality, then the consumer no longer needs to pay the high prices that dealers demand and the customers warranty will remain completely valid with the dealer.
