What You Should Do Before You Take Your Car to a Workshop

May 10, 2024 | By Gargash |



Your car needs to be serviced once a year, right? That’s an annual maintenance service routine. It’s not a particularly difficult task, but it still requires expertise.


Most people don’t even know how to use a screwdriver, so they rely on mechanics to do it for them. However, it’s a good idea to take your car in for regular maintenance to ensure you get the best service possible. However, there are some important things to keep in mind before you leave your property in someone else’s hands.


If you keep these things in mind and take good care of your car, it will not be subject to abuse. There are some precautions that you should take before you take your car to a repair shop. By doing this, you can save a lot of money.


These precautions are divided into two steps. First, before you take your car to the repair shop, and second, after you get your car back.


Let’s take a look at the precautions you should take before you take your car to a repair shop.


A. Check The Fuel Level


It is advisable to check the fuel level before you take your car to the repair shop. You can keep the fuel receipt or make sure that the worksheet shows the fuel level correctly. However, it is advisable not to overfill the tank and keep the level below 50% before taking the vehicle to the shop.


B. Check The Odometer Reading


Don’t forget to note the odometer reading when you arrive at the repair shop, and be sure to get written proof of this on your invoice. If the vehicle has been misused, it’s easy to tell.


C. Label Your Spare Tire For Future Identification


There is a possibility that a better-quality spare tire will be replaced with an inferior one; labelling the spare tire can prevent this. When you receive your vehicle back after the repair, you can check the label to identify the new flat tire.


D. Protect Your Vehicle’s Documents And Accessories


You should always protect documents such as your vehicle registration, insurance policy or driver’s license. If you have other removable accessories, remove them or store them in a safe place.


E. Find A Mechanic You Trust


Preventive measures are necessary, but are they worth it if you don’t do them properly? They certainly aren’t! That’s why you need to find a reliable mechanic. Most of us rely on the advice of friends or searching the Internet.


However, at Gargash Auto, our trusted mechanics, who are experts in their field, always strive to serve every customer with the utmost dedication and integrity.


At Gargash Auto, you can expect excellent service and reliability that will keep you coming back.


Nowadays, customers can get an estimate for their car repair with online help. However, it is now easier to calculate the cost of the service upfront. This method can raise questions about the costs involved and the likelihood of replacement. Every job can have hidden costs, inspection fees, and time.


Gargash Auto gives you the option to request a quote before making a service decision. This option is easily available through the app or by downloading the app.


Once you have selected a workshop and completed all of the above preparations, your car repair will begin. Your vehicle is on its way to the service center. However, before you can retrieve your vehicle, there are a few things you need to do to prepare.


F. Check The Worksheet


Most professional garages have a work plan. The work plan usually lists all the problems with the vehicle and the work that needs to be done. It provides a clear overview of the repairs and services that were carried out while your vehicle was in the workshop. It also lists the current prices of the parts used for the repairs.


G. Don’t Forget To Test Drive Your Vehicle Before Bringing It To The Workshop


In this day and age, time is always limited. If you are satisfied with the work done at the service, what’s the point? The best thing to do is to test drive the car and inform the service advisor of any problems you report.




Professionals don’t overlook anything, but there are always plenty of cars waiting for you in the workshop, so human error can happen.


But the experts at Gargash Auto can provide the quality and integrity you desire with free home pickup and delivery.
