Cars are expensive compared to all other vehicles and for many people they are essential for carrying out their routine activities, especially reaching their work place daily. Like all electromechanical devices, cars have to go periodic maintenance, so that faults in the car can be detected well in advance and corrective action can be taken to repair the car and prevent further damage. Specialized garages offering car service are well equipped with the latest equipment to check the condition of the car, detect any faults and carry out the necessary repairs.
While most individuals need to visit a garage to get their car repaired only when their car is damaged due to an accident or some other reason, it is always advisable to periodically service the car, especially when the free warranty period offered by the car manufacturer is over. For car damaged due to an accident, the car service station staff will assess the extent of the damage to the vehicle, and estimate the time taken to repair the vehicle, as well as their fees, which include the cost of repairs and the material/components which have to be used for the repair.
For minor repairs like dents and scratches on the car, the repair will be completed in a very short period of time, but for major repairs, when one or more part of the vehicle is damaged, repairs can be a very time consuming process. It will involve arranging for a replacement part, removing the damaged part, installing the replacement part, and then testing the vehicle with the replacement part, to ensure that it works as desired. Periodic service checks will ensure that the parts of the vehicle operate as per specified norms.
