Car Servicing

For over 70 years, Walsgrave Garage has been servicing all makes and models of cars and commercial vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes and we’re renowned in the area and as far afield as Nuneaton, Lemington and Warwick for our experience and exceptional quality workmanship.

Our reputation for efficient and reliable car servicing started back in 1950 and the only thing that’s changed is the technology now required to service today’s vehicles. We continually invest in state-of-the-art kit and there’s nothing that a main dealer has in its arsenal that we don’t. The one big difference is the price and as a genuine alternative to having your car serviced by a main dealer, we’re confident you’ll bring your vehicle to Walsgrave Garage for servicing time and again.

And if your car is under warranty, don’t worry. New block exemption rules mean you can bring it to us and know, with certainty, that we’ll service it at the recommended intervals and exactly to the manufacturer’s specifications; all without affecting its warranty.
