Servicing Your Classic Car

If you happen to be the proud owner of a classic or vintage car then you will no doubt want to keep it in good working order. After all, you may have spent many tens of thousands of pounds or even hundreds of thousands of pounds in buying such a vehicle.

So, how do you go about servicing the vehicle? Well, if you are mechanically minded when it comes to cars, you could consider doing the work yourself. You would probably get a great deal of personal satisfaction by getting under the bonnet of your cherished vehicle and providing it with some tender loving care. Do bear in mind that the engine in a classic car is no doubt going to be somewhat different to that of a modern family car.

Not only will you check under the bonnet but you will also no doubt need to make some other checks including making sure that the tyres are legal and that the brakes do their job effectively. If anything needs replacing then you may wish to be selective in terms of where you source genuine spare parts. There are car part companies who do supply parts suitable for a classic or vintage vehicle so make sure you shop around if you are going to service your own classic car.

If you are not able to carry out the servicing on your classic vehicle yourself then you could consider using a garage that specialises in looking after classic cars. So, how do you go about finding a garage that services classic vehicles? Well, you could contact the classic car club specific to the make of car you have and they may be able to recommend a suitable garage. Alternatively, you could do a search in your Internet browser by typing something like “classic car servicing uk” or to be more specific, if you own a classic jaguar car, you could type say “classic car servicing uk – jaguar” into your browser and this will hopefully give you some options re classic car servicing.

There is a lot to be said for recommendations. So, before choosing which garage to service your classic car, you could always ask them for the names and contact details of two or three of their existing customers to find out if they were pleased with the work undertaken. Spend as much time as you think necessary in making your selection.
