Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. My new car is still under the manufacturers warranty, can I still use the Automotion to save on maintenance costs?

Yes you can, new laws » now allow us to complete all of your annual service requirements and wear and tear items such as brakes, discs, wipers etc at a fraction of the cost of main dealer prices. Should any major mechanical fault occur simply take it to the nearest franchised dealer and they will carry out the repair free of charge under the terms and conditions of your existing warranty.

Q2. My new car has a free service package from the dealer, can Automotion still save me money?

YES, free dealer servicing tends to only cover basic oil services and doesn’t include items such as brake pads, discs, tyres, wiper blades to mention but a few, any additional work carried out will be chargeable… at dealer rates. We advise you check what is free and save money by having any extra work carried out by ourselves.
