When it comes to garage car services, the length of time it takes to carry out the car service will depend on the type of service, the condition of your car, and any repair work that’s needed.
For a full service, you can expect it to take around 3-4 hours to complete. If you’re having a short ‘interim’ service, this will usually only take around 90 minutes.
If any repair work is needed following the service, you’ll need to factor in additional time for that work to be done. Sometimes repairs can be carried out as part of the service itself, and so no time will be added on.
On the other hand, more significant repair work or repairs needing parts to be ordered will mean the whole process could take a lot longer.
When speaking with local garage services, it’s always worth asking them how long they estimate the car service taking.

As there are various types of car services available, each one will involve a slightly different process. Below are brief summaries of the three main services: interim, full and major.
Interim service – An interim service is usually recommended for every 6,000 miles (or every 6 months) and typically includes an oil and filter change and an inspection of the main parts of your car, including brake pads and discs, tyres and other areas that might show signs of general wear.
Full service – A full service is recommended every year, or every 12,000 miles that you drive, whichever comes first. It’s more involved than an interim service and will check everything in more detail. A full service will also usually include an air filter replacement and in-depth brake checks.
Major service – A major service is the most thorough car service that you can get and involves a complete check of all aspects of your vehicle, including spark plugs, brake fluid, suspension, and fuel filters. It’s recommended that you have a major service every 24,000 miles or every two years.
