Why Choose Us

VSC Sign

When I purchased the business in 1997, my aim was to make vehicle servicing affordable to the average person. I introduced free courtesy vehicles for clients to use (just pay for petrol used) and have updated them regularly.

Nothing comes “cheap” and we have all once regretted buying “something cheap and nasty”  At Vehicle Service Centre, we don’t do cheap – we do affordable and you get a proper job – with a 12 month guarantee on all work carried out.  We buy quality, aftermarket and genuine parts and can even source quality secondhand parts or rebuild products to make the job more affordable.  I generally get three supplier quotes for most jobs.

We pride ourselves on carrying out a good service for a fair price.  Many people say “you only get what you pay for, but only pay for what you get” this can be the case, but we take every job on its merits and won’t fix an older car that’s not worth fixing.

I have planned equipment upgrades over the years and have invested in a Scan Diagnostics Tool, Brake Drum/Disc Lathe and BM Autoteknik Brake Roller Machine.  All of these tools are invaluable in early diagnosis of a problem that might exist, before it becomes a major expense.

I allow you to talk to the Technician who worked on your car if you require and think communication is a major part in a customers relationship with us.
