It is time for my car to be sent to the workshop. The servicing decals says so. It says I need to service my car this month and at this mileage. But why? Why is it important to service my car? It costs me time and money. Is it really that important? Should I do it? What happens if I just delay it a little longer, or skip it all together?
Here, we answer the mind boggling question that has many car owners ponder upon — why should I service my car?
You might think it saves you time and money to skip servicing your car van, lorry and/or motorcycle. But, it might actually cost you more in the long run!
Some people may choose to roll up their sleeves and do an oil and filter change themselves, and there’s nothing wrong with that. In Singapore, you just have to remember to dispose of the oil responsibly and make sure the vehicle is hoisted up securely while you drain the oil. However, you’ll probably not be able to check the other components of the vehicle to ensure they are in good condition, either due to the lack of tools, software, or a combination of both. That’s why, at Squad Workshop, we’ll always carry out an overall health check on your vehicle, and generate a report for you. This will help identify any potential problems or safety concerns. We don’t just estimate the lifespan of your components either. Instead, we use quality tools to quantify the need for a replacement. For example, we use a tread depth gauge to physically ensure the remaining tread level is safe for usage. We will also check for wear of major components such as the brakes, suspension and exhaust system to ensure they are in good-working order.
Protecting car value
Buying a car is really expensive in Singapore. It is therefore important to protect this investment well by keeping your car in good condition. For example, oiled components need to be in tip top shape, and this can be achieved by having your car serviced regularly. Additionally, keeping a proper servicing record helps if you decide to sell your car in the future. It lets the next buyer know your car has been well taken care of. This gives them peace of mind when they’re considering your car.
Again, money is saved when your car is serviced regularly. Poorly maintained cars are known for having poor fuel efficiency amongst other things. This means more fuel is burned for the same distance the car travels, which then translates to having to pump fuel more frequently ,and fuel isn’t cheap in Singapore! So how do you increase your fuel efficiency? Service your car regularly at our workshop to ensure your car is working efficiently!
Simply put, the benefits of servicing your car regularly are immense. However, you might not have the time to send your car down to a workshop and wait there for your car servicing to be done.
