What is included in General servicing

We get lots of enquiry on what is included in our service checklist and I think it was about time that we listed it all out!

Here at Ipswich City Mechanical, it doesn’t matter if you are getting a logbook service, general service or safety inspection OR if your car is 6 months old or 20 years old, the Safety Inspection we carry out is the SAME across all makes, models and age of the vehicle.
