How long does a service take?
There is a lot to take into consideration with time when a manufacturer brings out a model and a recommended service schedule this will be assessed in the UK by an independent institute to put a time next to each service and replacement time referred to as a “book time” in the industry and not all garages will use book times so for example:
Garage 1 (manufacturer repairer)
The book time will typically be between half an hour for a minor service and anywhere up to 2 hours for a major service.
Garage2 (independent garage or solo mechanic)
They may not use book times and have set prices for certain services of their own, or look at what time they will have to spend getting ready and carrying out the service.
