Electric Car Services Romford

One of the biggest benefits of an electric vehicle is that it’s much less likely to experience issues when compared to its petrol or diesel counterpart. Thanks to it having a lot less moving parts, there’s a lot less that can go wrong. However, that’s not to say that they can’t go wrong. Brakes can deteriorate, tyres can deflate, and the springs in the suspension can wear out. While these are all easy problems to fix, they can become a safety hazard if left unchecked. Allen & Hall Motors are pleased to be able to carry out extensive electrical car servicing for your electric vehicle that will identify any problems that exist, regardless of the make or model. If you’re interested in booking your car in for a service and getting that peace of mind that comes with a well serviced car, then get in touch today.

What servicing is required on an electric car?

Just like servicing for any vehicle, the main priority is to make sure that your vehicle is safe to use. We’ll also check and highlight any minor problems, giving you the opportunity to address them before they become problems that are more expensive and difficult to fix. 

After bringing your car in, we’ll give it an extensive check. In many cases, this can be completed on the day, but in some cases where there may be more issues than normal, this might take slightly longer. In particular, some of the main things that we’ll check in your vehicle include:

  • Brakes
  • Tyres
  • Suspension
  • Motor and Batteries
  • Battery Health

And if you think that your car does already have a problem that needs fixing, we’ll make sure to investigate and fix it, giving you the peace of mind you need when driving your vehicle.

Allen and Hall FaQ

Can I service my electric car myself?

Unless you happen to be a qualified professional, you probably won’t be able to service your electric car yourself. If untrained, it would be easy for you to overlook a potential problem, or worse, create an entirely new problem yourself. Plus, it could affect your warranty. That is why it is important to get your electrical car servicing done by professionals.

Is servicing an electric car expensive?

While costs for servicing any car can occasionally be expensive, studies have shown that an electric vehicle will cost you around 23% less in services compared to a petrol or diesel vehicle. 

How often does an electric vehicle need servicing?

Most electric vehicles won’t need servicing as often as petrol or diesel vehicles. However, exactly how often your EV will need to be serviced will depend on the model. For example, some are advised to get yearly services, others after every 9,000 miles driven.It is important to bring in your car for a electrical car servicing to prevent any trouble in the future, for all enquires call us today. 

Is MOT the same as servicing?

While similar, an MOT is a compulsory check to make sure that your vehicle is safe to drive. This differs slightly from servicing, which is much more extensive and model specific. 

Why get your electric vehicle serviced?

We know that getting your car serviced can be a chore. It takes time out of your day and it costs money. But when you consider the alternative, it quickly becomes clear that it’s a small price to pay.  By not getting your car serviced, you’re putting your vehicle, and ultimately yourself, at risk. Servicing is carried out to ensure that your vehicle is running as it should. By putting off a electrical car servicing, you’re risking the possibility that small, easy to repair issues grow into much larger and less easily fixed problems.  Not only will this cost you more money in the long run, but it could also risk the wellbeing and safety of yourself and other people on the road. That’s why it’s always better to get your car serviced regularly, and benefit from:


  • Peace of mind, knowing that the car your driving is in good working order
  • Lower costs for repairs, by fixing problems early
  • Passing your MOT with no problems

Do electric cars need servicing?

As with all vehicles, your electric car will need regular checks. Recommendations on how often you should get your car serviced depend on the make and model, but you should be getting your car checked annually as a minimum.

By not getting your car serviced regularly, you risk overlooking problems with your vehicle. Things that can go wrong or deteriorate between services include:

  • Brake discs and pads
  • Steering
  • Suspension
  • Charging cable and port

So it’s always best to book your car in for a service fairly regularly.
