When was the last time you had your car or van serviced? Whether you’re a private domestic car owner, a fleet operator or anything in between, regular servicing is an essential aspect of owning a vehicle. It helps to maintain performance, efficiency and safety. In turn, this reduces the likelihood of roadside breakdowns, repairs and time off the road. While your MOT is a legal requirement, car servicing isn’t. But this is only due to the differing mileage milestones dictating when you need one, not because it’s less important.
Based in Shepperton, JH Autos Ltd is the trusted choice for vehicle servicing in all neighbouring Surrey and Berkshire locations. These include Bracknell, Byfleet, Reading, Staines, Sunbury and Virginia Water, to name a few.
Current industry guidelines recommend car servicing on an annual basis. While you may think skipping a service will save money, it actually represents a false economy. When inspecting your vehicle, our time-served team identifies an array of small issues.
By catching these early, we prevent them from developing into much bigger problems. This stops them causing more extensive damage that can lead to major repairs. With a proactive approach to vehicle maintenance, you reduce your long-term costs.
In addition, skipping annual servicing may also invalidate your car insurance. If a vehicle part suffers a fault, and it’s something we would normally inspect, your insurance company will likely refuse to pay out if it becomes clear that you have missed one or more services.

The kind of servicing JH Autos Ltd undertakes on your vehicle depends on its mileage. This is why annual servicing isn’t a legal requirement. Put simply, drivers with low-mileage have markedly different needs than those who clock up significant distances. As such, not all motorists would benefit from a uniform approach.
Our team performs the following car servicing options:
For optimal vehicle maintenance, we recommend alternating between service types.
JH Autos Ltd stamps your vehicle’s service book upon completion. By keeping this document up to date, you will find it easier to sell your car or van in the future. You’re more likely to get a higher price for it too.
To minimise disruption to your daily routines, we also provide a collection-and-delivery service for locations within a 5-mile radius of our garage, such as Byfleet, Staines and Sunbury. We can pick-up and drop-off your vehicle from a location of your choosing, be it a home or workplace.
All services involve visual checks to your car or van. During these inspections, we look for signs of damage to the vehicle’s body and wheels. We also undertake manual checks for deterioration on features such as the brakes and gearbox. Where needed, we top-up any low fluid levels and replace parts showing excessive wear.
When performing your service, we work through a multi-point checklist of components and parts, including:
A full servicing covers everything in an interim service, plus additional checks. These include inspections of the spark plugs as well as replacing fuel and pollen filters. A major service involves everything covered in a full service, but in much more detail and with extra replacements of consumables and wearable parts.
As a Shepperton-based Ford Specialist, we also perform dedicated Ford servicing for motorists in Byfleet, Staines, Sunbury and all neighbouring areas.
