Servicing and MOT
One of the most important investments for your vehicle is regular servicing and maintenance. While it can be easy to ignore or disregard the odd bump or scrape, such issues quickly mount up and can impact performance, safety and resale value. As such, you should always be prepared to regularly undertake inspections and health checks to avoid missing any issues that may well result in serious damage to your car.
Here at Thame Cars, we’re delighted to be able to provide you with all the servicing and maintenance needs you could possibly have, as well as being able to offer a complementary health check when booking any work. Our state-of-the-art facilities in Thame ensure that motorists from Aylesbury, Oxford, High Wycombe and beyond are all able to drop their vehicle in for assessment and we’ll take good care of it.
Among those measures available from our friendly workshop is major and minor servicing for a host of models. We can also carry out repairs - both large and small - and have your model back in an as-new condition in next to no time. Of course, we only ever work with manufacturer approved parts and accessories, meaning that all components are fully compatible and will provide long lasting performance and reliability.
In addition to servicing and maintenance, we at Thame Cars can also conduct full MOT testing. This annual check on the roadworthiness of your vehicle is a legal requirement, so we’re delighted to be able to complete this test at a price that is affordable. The MOT test takes a look at such key performance elements as lighting, oil levels, emissions, tyre health, and more, so should we uncover any potential issues, you can rest assured we’ll be able to repair them.
Making a booking for your car or van servicing is simple and fast. Using our online booking tool, you can schedule an appointment for a date and time that suit you. Simply provide a few key details and contact information and we’ll be delighted to confirm your booking. Alternatively, pick up the phone and speak to a member of our team direct.
You can MOT your car one month before your current certificate expires and the balance will be added to your new document.
At Thame Cars we work with fully trained technicians to help ensure that your car is carefully inspected to remain safe on the road. Our team will guide you through the MOT process and, should it fail, we’ll give you an accurate assessment of what’s needed to ensure it passes. Our expert technicians can perform any work necessary to ensure your car meets the MOT requirements, and you will be given a quotation prior to any work commencing.
The actual test takes around an hour and includes comprehensive checks of the tyres, brakes, lights, steering system, suspension and emission levels. You can either leave your car with us or book in for a “While you wait” appointment and enjoy our comfortable waiting area with free wi-fi, coffee and TV.
If your vehicle passes, a new car MOT (VT20 pass certificate) will be issued. Should it fail, you will receive a VT30 fail certificate and a form which shows the work required to bring the vehicle up to the legally required standard.
In some instances an advisory note may also be issued. This shows items that, whilst legal at the point of test, certain items are nearing the end of their serviceable life and will probably need to be replaced before your next MOT.
A service plan is a way to save money monthly, like a bank account, it enables you to have the cost of your next service covered. This means you have complete peace of mind when it comes to those servicing bills. Our plans are made to suit every pocket for up to 3 years.
