Benefits Of Servicing Your Classic Car

There are many benefits to servicing your classic car, including avoiding large problems that have been building up over time, meaning expensive repair bills, and it will also allow the car to run for longer. Regular servicing is also important for future sales of your car, as people like to see a full-service history in the logbook. 

You should have your classic car serviced, fairly regularly. It is recommended to have your classic car serviced every year or every 12,000 miles. This will make sure your vehicle continues running smoothly, that your classic car will maintain its value and that it passes its MOT. 

During a service, a number of checks are done, including:

Replacement of oil and oil filter

Full brake check

Fuel filter check

Engine check

Tyre pressure


Wheel alignment

Suspension checks

This page will give you more information on the benefits of servicing your classic car. However, if you need any more advice or need further help, please get in touch with a professional.

Protect your Investment

If you buy classic cars for a profit in future sales, then it is essential to ensure the value doesn't decrease, and you end up losing money instead of gaining it. To do this, you must get your classic car serviced regularly, and keep up with the maintenance and repairs.

Although we want you to enjoy your classic car, it is also important to maintain the condition and avoid any wear and tear, and manage the mileage as best you can. The people buying your classic car will be more likely to purchase, and pay more, if you follow all this advice, and keep it running as smoothly as possible.

If the car needs repairs that you don't know about upon sale, then it could cause problems and may also affect the safety of the driver and passengers. Whether the classic car is an old or modern version, it must be up to a high standard for you to have financial gain, so please ensure you take it to be serviced regularly. 

Save your Money

Sometimes, problems with your classic car may not be visible to noticeable, or they are just starting to appear. In this case, you wouldn't know to take it to the garage for a repair. Once the problem has started, it will only get worse, and by the time you notice, it may mean an expensive repair bill.

This is usually because the parts for classic cars often cost more, especially for the engine, due to being rarer and harder to get hold of. Also, classic cars always require an expert in these types of vehicles to do any repairs, maintenance, servicing and any other work.

However, if you take your classic car for regular servicing, for example, every year or every 12,000 miles, you will end up saving yourself a lot of money. This doesn't necessarily avoid problems with your car forever, as you could have a breakdown whilst on the road, but it will minimise the chances of problems developing and save you a lot of money in the long run.

Get an Expert Opinion

When you are getting your car serviced, it is always done by a professional with years of experience, who knows the right care solutions for your vehicle. They can also provide you with advice on the best breakdown cover and insurance solutions to ensure your motor vehicle passes its MOT every time.

This benefit for car servicing is especially important if you own a classic vehicle, as these services must be carried out by a specialist in the classic car industry. They will provide great, top-quality customer service, they will also use specialist car servicing equipment and will always add the finishing touch to ensure there's no visible wear and tear on your car.

If you do own a classic car and would like some information or the latest advice on having it serviced or an upcoming MOT, please contact a professional. They can also show you the best way to spot a sign your car needs to be serviced.

Improve Reliability

You often find that older and classic cars are less reliable than more new, regular cars, which means that people tend not to be driving them around a lot. This is because the parts for a classic car are higher in price than new cars, and harder to get hold of, so cost more to repair. Usually, they also want to cut down the number of miles they do to allow an increase in value.

If the classic car hasn't been driven a lot, it may be unreliable as you wouldn't know if there are was something wrong with it, or how likely it was to breakdown. However, if you get your car serviced regularly, it eliminates the chances of a high-cost repair bill that could cause a significant financial loss with the vehicle itself.

For the latest breakdown cover, road tax and insurance advice for classic vehicles, please get in touch with a professional, who will be able to help you find the best offers and offer their services by having a look at your car.

Ensure Safety

It is essential for your motor car to have a service every year or 12,000 miles, as it can be really dangerous for you as the driver, or the passengers. There could even be something wrong with the car without you realising, and this might cause the problem to progress further.

Once one problem has started with your classic car, it is easy for others to begin, which is why we have services and MOT tests. Even if you only think there is a problem with your car, you will always have a much better outcome if you take it to be serviced, rather than to continue driving it around.

If you are buying a used car, you should always check the service history first, before getting on the road, even if everything looks good.  If there isn't any service history, it is vital to get it checked before getting the car, to find out if everything works well.
