Car Servicing in Tilbury from Dry Dock Autos

Most of our Tilbury and Essex customers will already be aware of the higher prices main dealerships charge for car servicing. Dealerships usually have higher overheads than independent garages because they have showrooms and warranty work to consider, and the cost of manufacturer training for their mechanics also increases their outlay. Ultimately, the walk-in customer absorbs these overheads by paying more for car servicing and repairs.


Our workshop on Tilbury Docks is fully independent and welcomes customers throughout the whole of Essex. We look after their full and interim car servicing needs at rates which consistently beat those charged by main dealerships in the local area. Our mechanics and technicians work to the same schedules as dealership employees, so you’ll always receive like-for-like workmanship when you use independent garages for car servicing.


Thanks to Block Exemption 2013 guidelines, garages like our own provide more competition and give Tilbury and Essex motorists the chance save money on car servicing without having to worry about the invalidation of warranties. Because Dry Dock Autos works to the same manufacturer directives as a dealership, our customers only see a difference in our prices.

  • Full servicing available at 12,000 mile or annual intervals

The Importance of Regular Car Servicing

Contaminated oil, blocked filters and worn spark plugs all have a negative impact on the performance of cars. Worse still, a lack of regular maintenance causes vital parts and components to wear sooner. If they ignore the need for car servicing at specified manufacturer intervals, Tilbury and Essex motorists ultimately end up paying more for long-term car repairs – good news for garages, but not such good news for local drivers.


Contact Dry Dock Autos on 01375 858930 and we’ll help you make a booking for a time convenient to your personal or working schedule. Like all reputable garages in the Tilbury area, we open on Saturday mornings for those who can’t get to us during the week.


The mechanics on our team undertake car servicing on all manufacturer marques. Because we also stamp the service book, owners maintain a service history and this helps to preserve resale value. Our workshop on Tilbury Docks has the facilities in place to provide a full inspection of your vehicle, and we unconditionally guarantee the parts used during car servicing (and our workmanship) for 12 months or 12,000 miles – whichever comes sooner.
