VW Van Servicing In Manchester

The very fact that you own a Volkswagen van shows that you value quality and performance. If you are using it for your business, chances are that it’s critical for your day-to-day operations. If your van is critical for your business, you just can’t afford to cut corners when it comes to maintenance. A reliable VW van centre in Manchester will help you get excellent performance from your Volkswagen van for years.

Regular And Timely Van Maintenance Makes All The Difference

All vehicles need timely service and proper maintenance, but for commercial vans, this can make all the difference. Breakdowns are inconvenient and expensive. It can disrupt operations and affect your customer service. Lack of maintenance has its own cost.

Unlike personal cars, busy commercial vans accumulate mileage quickly. They have intensive and tougher operating conditions like carrying heavy loads and extensive idling. The tougher usage conditions result in increased wear and the need for more frequent servicing.

Periodic servicing ensures that consumables are regularly replaced, minor problems are detected and repaired on time and the performance, reliability and safety of your van is maintained. As your VW van gets older, age and wear will start to tell on its components. For vans that are intensively used, major repairs will be needed at several points in its lifespan.

If you are getting your van serviced at a reliable garage, all these problems can be correctly diagnosed and competently repaired. With regular servicing at a good VW van centre in Manchester, your van will continue to give you excellent performance for years to come.

For your VW van service, you have three major options. You could go to the Main Dealer or to a general garage or to a VW specialist garage in Manchester. It’s important to know the advantages and disadvantages of each of these options.

Main Dealer Garage – Usually Reliable, But Expensive

The Main Dealer garage generally gives good service and you are assured of company spares and consumables. That said, it’s not the best place to service your van, especially when it’s past its warranty period.

A VW Dealer garage is the most expensive option for servicing and is not value for money. Commercial vans need frequent servicing and with older vans, these extra costs easily add up to make a dent in your profits.

Replacement of any major component can be expensive, but it’s not always necessary. Some components like the gearbox can be repaired at a fraction of the cost of a new one. Unfortunately, Main Dealer garages usually offer replacement as the only option for several components. This increases your maintenance costs and for older vans, it may not even make economic sense.

Another problem at the Main Dealer garage is the choice of spares. Usually, good-quality OEM spares will give the same performance as the manufacturer spares. At the Main Dealer garage, manufacturer spares are almost always used. This again adds to your van maintenance costs with no additional benefits.

General Garage – Cheaper, But Risky

Your second option for VW van servicing in Manchester is a non-specialist garage. These general garages may be cheaper than Main Dealer or specialist garages, but they may not have the right equipment or VW specialist mechanics. The right equipment and competent mechanics are very important for ensuring accurate diagnosis and correct repairs.

Your VW van is a high-performance vehicle and needs quality service. Incomplete or wrong diagnosis of problems can result in poor repairs. A bad repair is just a waste of money and could lead to bigger problems in the future.

The quality of spares and consumables used in some garages is questionable. If they are not right, it could result in degradation of performance, breakdowns or major repairs later.

Service quality is potentially the main problem with non-specialist garages.

Specialist Van Centres – Reliable And Economical Service

The third option you have for VW van service is to go to a VW specialist van centre in Manchester. Although it may not be the cheapest garage in town, these VW specialist garages come with some unique advantages.

They have the requisite equipment and manufacturer-trained mechanics. So, they have the expertise and equipment to offer excellent service. If you have trouble with your van, you will get accurate diagnosis and the best repair option.

Service charges of specialist garages are cheaper than the Main Dealer garages for the same type of work. Where possible, they also give you the option of using cheaper OEM spares or standard manufacturer spares. Unlike the Main Dealers, they will repair a component where possible instead of immediately suggesting a replacement. So, overtime, you will save more.

Specialist garages will update your service book and digital service records. So, there is absolutely no worry about loss of service history or resale value.

    Great to see the VW experts to work on my Winnebago Rialta which is half VW half Winnebago. First visit source a cambelt from overseas as it was very rare. Today they carried out a full service, MOT, and fitted the broken seat belt. ( Which was a bit of a job). And to top it all cleaned up months of lockdown storage moss. Thank you to the great team.

    Great service. They advised they could book me in on a Thursday after my Audi Q7 had a suspension failure. I dropped the car off on a Tuesday because it was virtually un driveable and by Wednesday they had given me a price and repaired the car.

    I'll be dropping the car off for a full service in the future. Natalie and Nathan were great!

    I would highly recommend Volksmaster , very knowledgeable and fairly priced, I like the fact that time is taken to explain what any faults are and keep the defective parts to sow you,and that no unnecessary work is carried out without talking to the customer firs.
    Great bunch of lads

  • I can not recommend Nathan @ Volksmaster van centre Oldham enough, bloody excellent service.

    Excellent customer service, amazing knowledge, shares what he knows to help me understandable make an informed decision.
    He understands that if my truck is off the road I am not earning so he fits my sporadic availability in to suit me not him.. this is so helpful.

    If there were more stars they would get them..

    I would advise anyone to completely dismiss VW Manchester van centre and go for Volksmaster, they are just better all round and totally honest with you unlike VW Manchester.

  • It was not easy to find a garage I could trust. To know what they are doing and be honest about what needs to be done. I know a fair amount about car mechanics, so Im not easily fooled and can identify a con-merchant. If the garage takes the time to fully explain what is wrong with your car and how they will fix it, and does not mind you asking questions, then its a fair sign that they can be trusted. I have been taking both my VW van and Golf there for almost 2 years. I am very happy with their work.

    Hi this garage was the best find I have ever had,I own a 2005 VW td5 Caravelle which I use daily as I have mobility problems so this van is my legs and has to be in good order. Nathan at Volksmaster helped me greatly with a problem the van had with loss of coolant that wasn't leaking to the outside of the car .They found water in the oil and diagnosed a water pump problem and after several oil and filter changes the replacement water pump had worked a treat.After a test drive wheel bearings and drop links also replaced and a noise that I had thought had been rattling side bars was sorted. Nathan & Callum helped me with there knowledge and advice and it was a pleasure to do business with them I have now decided after this top drawer service to keep my Caravelle at Volksmaster.Thank you Volksmaster

    I had quite a bad central locking fault on my Caddy, which was a real pain for me. Volksmaster did a cracking job to find and fix the fault and went above and beyond in all their service. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff also. Cracking job and service from Volksmaster, would highly recommend.
