Choosing a garage in Newhaven: MOT centre considerations

Every driver understands that having a current MOT certificate for their vehicle is a legal condition of driving on the roads, and it is vitally important to make sure that your car is safe and fit for purpose! Understandably, you will want to ensure that you get a good service at a reasonable price, and most drivers will shop around to find the garage that works best for them within a convenient distance of Newhaven. MOT centre testing facilities should be of a uniform standard as part of the process of being certified as a registered testing centre, so provided that the Newhaven MOT centre you choose is registered to conduct MOT’s, the ultimate choice of garage depends on what works best for you!

At Newhaven Car Services, we pride ourselves on going the extra mile for all of our customers, working with you to find a timeslot and date that suits you, and getting your car through its MOT efficiently so that you can get back on the road quickly. We’ve been in business for 30 years now, and have a well-respected reputation for great service and reliable mechanical work in Newhaven. Car servicing and general maintenance can also be undertaken along with the preparations for your car’s MOT test if you need to have any work done prior to the test itself, and all of our servicing follows the manufacturer’s recommended 30-point checklist.

For your MOT itself, we run a high-level major component pre-MOT check on your car, including examining the suspension, brakes and steering. When you leave your vehicle with us, we then deliver it directly to a local testing station, and bring it back promptly upon completion of the test and call you to let you know how it fared. Hopefully your car will have passed with flying colours, but in the event that something isn’t quite right or an MOT certificate cannot be issued, we will contact you promptly to advise you of this, and provide a full quote for any necessary alterations or repairs required prior to retesting.

We will never begin work on your car without contacting you first, explaining what is needed and agreeing the price before commencement, so there will be no nasty shocks when it comes to paying the bill! We are also members of the Retail Motor Industry organisation, and will be one of the first garages to join the soon-to-launch “Trust my Garage” scheme, to give you an extra level of peace of mind when leaving your car with us.

If you are looking for a Newhaven MOT centre, look no further- contact us now for an informal chat or advice without obligation, and see how we can help you to keep your car safe, legal and on the road.
