Servicing and Repairs

We service all makes and models of vehicles far more competitively to that of a main dealer. We undertake servicing on both petrol and diesel vehicles; cars, 4 x 4‘s, vans (up to 4 tons), small commercials, public service and light goods vehicles.

Our Service promise: We will provide you with an excellent level of service from start to finish. If required, we will collect your vehicle from your home or place of work and return it to you once servicing is complete. This is especially beneficial for those who are unable to bring their vehicle into our workshop due to work commitments or who run a business and cannot afford the time away from their duties. In this respect we offer maintenance contracts for companies such as taxi firms, local businesses with fleet vehicles and public service vehicles. We will provide you with the best possible advice relating to your vehicles servicing taking into account your motoring health and safety as our priority.

We will carry out work in accordance with your vehicles service recommendations to the highest possible industry standards. Did you know that the law now states that you can take your car to any garage for a service without invalidating your warranty. At Avon Motors we use only high quality parts that comply with the manufacturer’s warranty specifications.

We will always give our best price and will do our best to work within agreed budgets and time specifications and to inform you immediately if there are any additional considerations that are beyond our control where further work is required.
