Major Service with FREE collection & delivery


To keep your car in good working order and hopefully avoid any hefty unexpected bills, SAI MOT recommend Major Service. This is a comprehensive servicing option for your vehicle. On top of all the tests and checks done for the Full (Annual) service, we conduct a number of important checks on the wear and tear of the car that needs special attention after an year of use.
