So it’s come to that time in any Used cars lifetime where money needs to be spent to keep it maintained to a high standard. Used cars are like humans, as we get older wrinkles start to show, our energy levels start to drop and there is a time in our lives where we realise we haven’t got the power we used to have. We have creams and all sorts of treatments to help delay our ageing process, Used cars have to get a Car Service Reading.
There are many different ways in which you can service your vehicle. However, I am going to cover service plans. Many dealerships offer their own form of service plan for used cars, so it is important that you ensure you are getting value for many when you purchase one.
Service plans are designed to offer you hassle-free motoring and an easy way to budget for all your servicing requirements. Tailored to your individual requirements, you can choose which plan best suits you and then spread the cost of regular servicing through simple monthly instalments, just like household bills. As we all are aware servicing is very important, so service plans can help you to monitor your servicing for most used cars easily and efficiently.
Most dealerships will provide you with an individual quote, based on your used cars service schedule, your average mileage and how many years you prefer the service plan to cover. Service plans usually cover the cost of your standard servicing, including parts and labour with the exception of normal wear-and-tear parts such as tyres, brake pads and windscreen wipers etc. Some service plans come with extras such as free MOT for life, Courtesy car, Discounts. Service plans can be inflation proof.
I know for a fact that at our dealership when servicing new and used cars it is important for us to help the customer avoid large, inconvenient bills with interest-free monthly payments or if you prefer you can pay one lump sum. This is to help customers choose what is best for them, so they are comfortable and do not have to worry about payments they are not able to make. Used cars need to be serviced regularly to avoid erosion at a faster pace than you could come to expect, erosion related to both mechanical and bodywork. To help maintain your used car’s health, I strongly recommend that you consider taking on a service plan that will suit your preference on payments and extras.
Ensure you, scout, around looking out for hidden catches and terms and conditions, because the last thing you want is to take your car for a service and find there was a hidden cost you hadn’t read about. Be patient, leave yourself plenty of time to find your used cars service plan before it is due to be serviced.
Remember those wrinkles won’t disappear on their own, so give your vehicle the extra support that used cars need. It will all be worth it when it surpasses 100,000 miles and is still running like a dream.
