Regular car servicing is one of the most important actions you can take to keep you and your family safe on the roads.
A car service in Northampton greatly reduces the risk of future repairs and keeps your vehicle running at its best for longer.
Since the 1960s, our family – the Hemming Family – have been keeping the cars of Northampton, Roade and Towcester running safely on the road.
With highly trained technicians and the latest equipment, it’s no surprise that we’re the leading, independent garage in the area.
Why You Need To Service Your Car
Safety: Don’t become a statistic. A regular car service in Northampton ensures your car is running at its safest. It means you won’t get caught out by any hidden problems.
Reliability: There’s nothing worse than being caught out by early morning breakdowns. That’s why car servicing is so important. It stops the little things from getting bigger.
Savings: Love to save money? Who doesn’t? Well, there’s no better way to save money on your car than with a car service. Regular servicing means fewer repairs and more miles to the gallon. It can also enhance the resale value of your vehicle. What’s not to love?
Longevity: You’ve bought your car. Why would you not want it to last at its best for longer? A car service keeps your car running at its peak.
How do I know when my car needs servicing?
For most cars, this is between 10,000 miles to 20,00 miles or 12 months to 24 months.
However, your car should have a service light or schedule, which will tell you when your next car service in Northampton is due. If you’re still unsure, don’t worry. Give us a call and we’ll find out for you.
After your first service at Roade Garage, we’ll let you know 4 weeks before you’re next due.

What’s Included In A Service?
Lighting & Visibility – Your front and rear lights are rigorously checked for optimal performance, as is your glass, wipers, exterior mirrors and registration plates.
Steering, Drive & Suspension – All joints, gaiters and wheel bearings are extensively inspected, as well as your front and rear shock absorbers and road springs.
Tyre Inspection – All road wheels and tyres are inspected for any issues, and pressures adjusted prior to refitting. We’ll even check your spare wheel or inflation kit.
Under Bonnet – A full under bonnet inspection ensures no leaks and that everything is in working order. If necessary, we’ll replace service items such as your air filter, oil filter, spark plugs or drive belts.
Braking – Both front and rear brake components are checked and measured, allowing us to accurately report on their service life.
Under Vehicle – After your under trays are removed, the engine oil is drained and transmission checked for leaks.
Vehicle Interior – All seat belts, horn, hazard lighting and vehicle controls are inspected. We’ll also check for any warning messages, and ensure the driver displays are correct. This includes analysing your vehicle computers for intermittent or permanent faults.
Final Checks – We’ll finish up with your brake fluid and antifreeze test, before filling your engine with new oil. Once we’ve completed our work we’ll switch off any service lights on your dashboard and update your service history (paper or electronic) to have your vehicle performing at its best.
