Servicing and Maintenance

Servicing and Maintenance is covered by your maintenance contract and should be handled by your designated franchised dealer who will carry out:-

  • Servicing as recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Repairs and replacement parts as necessary ( Please note that the supplier will need to seek approval from us before proceeding with any work over and above routine servicing for which the cost is likely to exceed £100).
  • The servicing dealer must use the 1Link system for authorisation.

The following costs are not covered:-

  • Oils and washer solution between servicing
  • Engine tuning
  • Washing or valeting
  • Punctures, early replacement of tyre due to puncture, run flat or damaged tyre. A proportion of the remaining tread will be recharged.
  • Bodywork, trim, glass, lights and mirrors

Failure to have the vehicle serviced at the intervals prescribed by the manufacturer may lead to damage and invalidation of the vehicles warranty. In that event any costs will be passed on to your company.

Tyres and Batteries

The condition of your tyres affects your safety and is your responsibility:-

Check the tyre pressures regularly and inspect the condition of the tread.

Where there are signs of uneven wear you should ask your servicing dealer or one of the recommended tyre suppliers, to check the tracking.

The replacement of worn tyres as a result of faulty tracking, incorrect tyre pressures or damage (run flat / sidewall damage) will be recharged.

We cannot accept charges for work arising as a result of the jacking equipment being incomplete.

Battery replacement must only be supplied by your servicing dealer or by one of the specialist suppliers.

A list of our approved tyre and battery suppliers appears below.
