Many people fall in to the trap of thinking that they have to take their vehicle to a main dealers to be serviced to keep their warranty, or worse still being persuaded to buy an expensive service package. Unfortunately, these are very rarely good value for money with the minimum work often being carried out and it is often more cost effective to’ pay as you go’
HERE’S THE HARD FACTS. YOU DO NOT NEED TO TAKE YOUR VEHICLE TO A MAIN DEALER TO KEEP YOUR WARRANTY. OUR SERVICE WILL NOT INVALID YOUR MANUFACTURERS WARRANTY AND THAT IS A FACT!
ATC are able to service your car without affecting your manufacturer’s warranty. All parts we use on your vehicle will not invalidate the warranty on that vehicle. You only need to get it serviced according to the manufacturer's recommended schedule, using manufacturer approved parts. We use good quality parts and will price match any genuine main dealer price.
Yes. There was a time when it was difficult to go anywhere other than a franchised dealer to get a car serviced when it was still within its warranty period.
In October 2003 European Union legislation, ‘Block Exemption Regulations 1400/2002′ (BER) came into force. This meant that independent repairers can carry out normal maintenance and repair services during a vehicle’s warranty period without invalidating the warranty conditions provided that:
- Your vehicle service is carried out in accordance with the manufacturer’s servicing schedules and is recorded
- Any parts used are of ‘appropriate quality’ and are recorded as such.
- All genuine parts are covered by the manufacturers 2 year warranty.
