In truth, no one really thinks of servicing as the most exciting thing in the world. For most of us, the yearly MOT is the most servicing we hope to do, and that's the only time we hope to end up anywhere near a garage.

But actually, learning more about servicing your own car can really add to your pleasure in terms of driving and in terms of your bank balance. And if anything, the benefits are even more applicable to those of us who drive used cars.

Service for the future

When it comes to car sales, not many people mention servicing. But the car, like any other piece of equipment, needs regular love and attention.

If you bother to put in the effort to learn how to open your bonnet, change the oil, and keep the battery charged and the fluids in your car topped up, you can save serious cash by avoiding the nightmares of breakdowns.

The biggest benefit is that, you will understand your car better. This means you will be more careful with it and the chances are you could actually end up a safer, and a more responsible driver.

Car sales in the UK are often focused on the qualities of new. But when you buy used, and you take an interest in the health and wellbeing of your car, you can prolong your vehicle life far beyond the equivalent new driver who doesn't care for a vehicle, and simply runs it into the ground.

There are of course some jobs which are best left to the professional, and at Hertz Rent2Buy we aren't suggesting that you attempt every single piece of maintenance.

Obviously you will save a lot of money by servicing regularly and by keeping a close eye on your car's condition.

But you can add a lot to the day to day elements of driving by understanding, and actually loving your car a little. And then it will reciprocate this love back in the form of low costs and a more reliable drive.

That seems to us to be a win win scenario.
