More often than not, you are likely to buy a car which has had previous owners, your service history will show you exactly what work the car has had done to it in the past. You must only buy a used car if you have the previous service history. We all know that the age of the car can make a significant difference to the vehicle, but let’s discuss the importance of this document and what the service history shows.

This is why at Motorserv we fully update all service history documents and provide a warranty to ensure that the car is safe to drive and any unforeseen problems are covered.

Let’s discuss the significance and importance of a service history.

Adds Value To The Car.

Your service history will highlight all of the previous work which the car has had done to it. You can have a great understanding of how well the previous owners have looked after the car, and from here you can identify the parts of the car which have been recently replaced. In addition to this, the information will give you a great idea regarding how to maintain the quality of your car.

Identifies previous responsible ownerships. 

When you dive deep into the service history document, there is so much information you can gain, but in addition to this, you can see exactly who has owned your car previously. This is great because you can see the exact work which each owner has had done to the car, tracking how well it has previously been looked after.
