There are lots of great car garages in Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding West Kent area. We work with a great selection of garages who are all well equipped to look after most car, van and motorbike issues. Whatever your vehicle’s trouble, it’s worth taking it to a garage for a once-over.
The most commonly-booked items through our website are annual MOTs and services. Not sure when to book one? With MOTs, you need to take your car in every year, once the vehicle is three years old. MOT prices are capped each year by the government, but you’ll often get an MOT cheaper than the cap, as garages compete for your business.
Taking your car in for a service isn’t a legal requirement, unlike an MOT. Many agree, however, that a yearly service is the best way to keep your car operating safely and efficiently. General school of thought is to have a full service done once a year, or every 12,000 miles, whichever comes sooner. Some also recommend a major service every 24 months or 24,000 mile for very high mileage vehicles.
As well as servicing and MOTs, most garages can repair common problems and faults, such as the ones below.
Common car repairs
- Oil leaks
- Windscreen damage
- Clutch replacement
- Exhaust problems
- Flat battery
- Wiper blades and light bulbs
