I Need My Car Serviced, How Long Will It Take?

The time it takes to get a car serviced, will depend on the work that needs to be carried out.


A minor service is recommended every 6 months or 10,000km and should take about 1 hour.

A major service is recommended every 24 months or 40,000km and should take about 2 – 4hours.


We always try to provide short waiting times, but if we find a problem and need to replace parts or resolve an issue, it will take a little longer, we will contact you and talk you through what we’ve found and how we’ll fix it.

Your car and your home are two of the most significant purchases most of us will make in life, and with home prices skyrocketing, a car is more likely to be owned by most Australians these days. Like a house needs repairs to keep it in tip top condition, so does our vehicles, not only to keep them on the roads but to safeguard you, your passengers and other drivers. Servicing your car is essential to keep it performing at its best, by skipping a service you not only void your car warranty, but you could also be causing severe damage to your car.
