When we go to buy a new or used car from a dealer or independent car supermarket we are so overwhelmed with our purchase that sometimes we forget about key components needed to ensure our new pride and joy remains in tip top condition. Dealer Service plans tend to be offered at the time of sale, or within a few months of buying a new or used car. Personally I think it is a no brainer walking out with a new car without a service plan in place. Dealers are able to offer plans with flexible finance terms and periods. With a service package in place there are no concerns about servicing costs, as the cost of the plan covers all regular maintenance.Checkout maintenance for more info.
With all new cars they have to be serviced and maintained to the recommended manufacturer intervals to ensure the warranty is not void, a service plan ensures this is adhered to. Depending on the amount of mileage the car covers services can be carried out on time based intervals or mileage specifications. Car dealers offer competitive rates on servicing and the package can be tailored around the customers’ requirements. If you are buying a new or nearly new car then my advice is to strongly consider buying a service package, or even try to negotiate with the dealer in the initial purchase price or finance terms. This way you can be rest assured that you will not be hit with a large service bill!
Now that winter is here, it has never been more important to make sure that your car is regularly serviced. Think of your car like a human being. If a human become in contact with somebody that has a cold or flu, they are likely to get it too. On the other hand, if a car is short of anti-freeze, the water will not circulate through the cooling system and therefore will cause the car to overheat. There are many car dealers that are offering good deals on service plans so visit your local dealer this week and make sure your car has had its winter check over.
