What makes us so good?

Our team of trained technicians are highly adept at working with Volvo's, and have a complimentary range of skills that enable them to troubleshoot, diagnose and fix almost any problem in our specialised garage.

In addition, we have invested heavily in state-of-the-art equipment to provide our customers with the latest and greatest advancements in technology. Our mechanics are trained by Volvo to use their proprietary VIDA Diagnostic Tool: a complex hand-held computer system that plugs directly into your car's on-board computer to help troubleshoot and diagnose problems - often before they even happen. The VIDA is able to communicate directly with your car to update it's software and make sure it is running at 100% efficiency.

Potential problems and known faults are flagged up immediately so that they can be repaired on the spot by our team, who are trained to deal with all makes and models of cars and vans. We are even able to accommodate special vehicles such as ambulances and police cars that deviate from the standard factory model, so give us a call today to find out how we can help you.

tyresWe stock a wide range of quality tyres from well-known manufacturers, and can change them while you wait. Our prices are very competitive, and if you are looking for a tyre that we do not have in stock; we can order it in for next-day delivery.

tyre stackChoose from a huge range of performance and economy tyres from Goodyear, Pirelli and Michelin, or opt for some of our high quality mid-range tyres from manufacturers such as Kumho or Yokohama if you are on a tight budget.

We only ever supply quality, new tyres; never remoulds or part-worn's.

Air Conditioning

If your car is fitted with air conditioning and you haven't had it recharged in the past 2 years; you may need to have it refilled with gas and lubricant to keep it working effectively.

Air conditioning is not checked as part of a standard service, and due to the nature of the components inside, around 10% of the refridgerant gas can permeate from the system every year, even if it is rarely used. When it drops below a certain point, your air conditioning will not work as well as it should, and could begin to fail completely.

If you suspect your air conditioning needs a recharge, pop in to RM Motor Services and our trained technicians will replace the lubricant and refrigerant levels in your car according to the manufacturers recommendation.
