At Cotgrave Service Station we pride ourselves on our ability to provide servicing requirements for all vehicles. Our programmes can be tailored to suit the manufacturers’ recommendations and requirements for your vehicle, and ensure any existing warranty is maintained.
*If you are booking online please select a time slot and leave your vehicle with us for the whole day. Once your booking has been made an email confirmation will be sent with all the details of the booking*.
We are a local, family-run business with the ability to carry out work to the same standard as a main dealership. We use the latest diagnostic equipment and techniques to safely reset the engine management light on your vehicle after its service, and can update your digital service history where required.
If you need to leave your vehicle with us, we operate a fleet of free courtesy cars so you can continue with your day as usual (just let us know if you need this when booking). Alternatively, we can arrange a collection service.
To arrange your car’s service with us, simply book online or give us a call on 0115 989 2379.
We recommend that an Intermediate Service is carried out annually. It includes an oil change and oil filter change, usually a cabin filter plus a full level and visual health check which includes underbody inspection and brake check.
We recommend that a Full Service is carried out biennially. It includes all elements from the Intermediate Service but we also replace air filters, fuel filters (diesel engines) and spark plugs (petrol engines) where necessary. We remove all road wheels and strip and clean brakes.
Oil Change Service
An Oil Change Service includes an oil and oil filter change, a check on oil levels, tyre tread and pressure. We recommend that this is carried out on all vehicles regardless of mileage every year along with your MOT.
Seasonal health checks
As the seasons change, it is important to check your vehicle is in good condition and ready for the changing conditions. We offer free health checks throughout the year which focus on key priorities for that season such as battery condition, oil and windscreen washer fluid levels, tyre tread and windscreen wiper condition.
Manufacturers Warranty Protected
If your vehicle is within its manufacturer’s warranty period, having it serviced at 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. The Right to Repair Campaign states:
“The Block Exemption Regulation includes elements that give the consumer the freedom to choose where they have their vehicle maintained without negating manufacturer’s 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.”
This means that as long as an independent garage such as ours uses original parts, or parts of matching quality, you no longer need to pay the high prices demanded by main dealerships and your warranty will remain completely valid.
