We all consider routine maintenance and regular check-ups for our vehicles. Each individual has a reliable car service centre to trust, depending on the personal experiences and services being offered. While you expect a near-perfect serviced car from the service centre, there are few essentials which need to be checked before taking the delivery.
Car Servicing & You highlights crucial points after car servicing. We are a trusted car repairs & maintenance centre Australia, ensuring the 100% customer satisfaction with each car serviced by our highly experienced mechanics.
CHECK THE JOB SHEET OR WORK ORDER : The most standard practice at any automobile service centre is to prepare a job sheet. This sheet is the main communication between the mechanic and the car owner – with specifications of the tasks which need to be taken care during the particular service. Check the sheet before taking the car back home, just to ensure that all the faults/complaints have been attended to and corrections have been made.
CHECK FUEL LEVEL AND ODOMETER READING : This is just to check if the car was misused behind your back, out of the normal test drives which might be conducted by the service advisors.
CHECK FOR ITEMISED BILL : After the car has been serviced, an itemised bill is prepared which carries the rates of services received by the car owner. Always double check to see the price quoted and ask for explanations if a service has been charged more. Billing can experience a human error, it is always better to be vigilant.
CHECK TYRE CONDITIONS, WHEEL ROTATION AND BALANCING : There are always chances of tyre swapping in rare situations. We are sure that you wouldn’t want your new car to drive with old tyres!
CHECK FOR PROPER CAR WASH AND INTERIORS: Any car service would include these two services in the labour charges. Always counter check if your car has undergone exterior foam wash, polishing, interior vacuum cleaning and other services to make the car look dirt-free.
After a good check, always pay for the car services at the end. There is a lot to know when you are told that ‘The car is ready’
