Why should I compare prices?

There are a number of things to consider when picking the right garage. Price will usually be the main factor but our comparison lets you consider customer reviews, distance from your home or place of work, and the services the garages in your area offer.

What is checked on an MOT?

An MOT garage will check a number of things when carrying out an MOT, including:

  • Lights to check their colour, condition, safety and aim are all correct
  • Steering and suspension to see if they're operating as normal and in good condition
  • Brakes to make sure they’re functioning safely
  • Wheels and tyres to ensure general condition, security and tread depth of your tyres aren't worn to the point of being dangerous
  • Vehicle emissions will be tested to make sure they fall within safety guidelines

To see a full list of MOT checks, take a look at our MOT guide.

How can I find a car service near me?

It's simple, we just need some information about your car, your postcode and the work your car needs. Once we've got that we'll show you a list of quotes from garages offering services near you. We show them listed by closest to your postcode but also let you view them on a map if you'd prefer.
