Vehicle Servicing

We are one of Bicester’s oldest and most popular car service centres, with more than 45 years in business.

We carry out services for all makes and models of cars, and small vans etc. as per manufacturers recommendations.

At Barrie Plant & Sons, our car service prices are significantly cheaper than those you would expect to pay at a main dealership for a car service. Your warranty is not affected* by choosing a local ‘non dealership’ garage to service your vehicle. In addition, it can be far less disruptive to your day, and the service you receive is more personal, with full updates on any faults found, or extra work recommended.

Don’t forget, a well-maintained vehicle:

  • Has less risk of breakdowns and expensive repairs
  • Operates with greater fuel economy
  • Spends less time off the road
  • Is less likely to suffer accidents
  • Will last longer and perform better
  • Maintains its value when you come to sell or trade in

To help us save time, please remember to bring your locking wheel nut key and service book along to your appointment
