I offer fixed price servicing for older Land Rovers at a very reasonable price. Very few of the larger Land Rover dealers and specialists are interested in working on vehicles more than a few years old - but these older vehicles are my whole business, and I love them. So you can be assured that I will do the job properly and not rush it. Unlike some specialists, I don't have 'more important' customers with £40,000 Range Rovers. Bring me your tatty old Series 3 or hard-worked Defender and I will treat it with as much respect and attention to detail as I would a brand new vehicle.
I have a good relationship with a local MoT test station and can arrange for your Land Rover to be MoT'd as well as serviced.
Fixed cost servicing is available on the following vehicles:
Exact servicing schedule varies according to model, but as a guide:
Basic service - change engine oil and filter, check and top up other fluid levels, remove roadwheels, inspect brakes, clean and adjust where required, check steering and suspension components, grease propshaft joints, check vehicle structure for corrosion, check all electrics, check/adjust ignition and carburettor settings (petrol engines), check/adjust drive belts.
Standard service - as above plus: change air and fuel filters, change plugs, points and condenser (petrol engines), check and adjust valve clearances (except V8).
Super service - as above plus: change oil in gearbox, transfer box and axles. Flush through braking system with fresh brake fluid. Change coolant.
The above is not a complete list but gives you a good idea of what you get for each level of service. If you have recently bought a vehicle with no history I would recommend a 24,000 mile service, and also a new timing belt on 2.5 diesel engines.
I can also offer timing belt changes for older Land Rovers:
All prices include parts and labour. I am not VAT registered.
If your vehicle is not listed here, please contact me for a quote. Please note that I am unable at present to offer servicing and repairs to some of the more recent models (Freelander, Discovery 2 and 3, Range Rover post 1994). For servicing and repairs to these vehicles I can recommend Mansfield Motors in Bury St Edmunds. Telephone 01284 767174 and ask for Ralph.
I offer a full range of workshop services including:
My workshop is located in Banham, Norfolk - see contact page for details. Normal opening hours are 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday but if you want to drop your vehicle off earlier or collect it later (or at the weekend) I can normally accommodate this. Callers are welcome but if you are travelling any distance I would suggest you ring first to make sure I am not out collecting parts.
Payment - cash, cheque or direct bank transfer are all acceptable. I am unable at present to take payment by credit or debit card. A detailed invoice will be given for all work done.
Ring me on 01953 888731 to find out what I can do to keep your vehicle on the road.
