Harestock Garage is one of the longest-servicing garages in Winchester with a proud history that dates all the way back to 1964. During our time in business, we’ve provided garage services to thousands of customers across Hampshire who wouldn’t place their trust in any other workshop. We have the needs of local motorists completely covered, helping them with full and interim car servicing, mechanical car repairs and annual MOT testing.
Book in for a service, a repair or one of our Class IV MOTs with confidence. Alternatively, use us for work on car electrics or for engine diagnostics knowing the very few garages in the Winchester area can match us for investment, equipment, knowledge or experience.
Our garage services include full and interim car servicing. A service is an annual or twice-yearly maintenance program for your vehicle built around the number of miles you cover, and the way in which you drive. Dealership rates for car servicing in Winchester tend to be a little on the costly side but we much prefer to make our own maintenance more affordable.
Dealerships and fast-fit centres have higher overheads because they work from high-profile locations. We’re easy to find too, but we can usually beat larger operations on price.
Even the best-maintained car has moving parts that wear as time goes on. A parts failure could leave your vehicle off the road, making it harder for you to stay mobile. Book in for car repairs as soon as you notice a change in driving characteristics or when a warning light starts displaying on your dashboard. A faster response often results in a cheaper repair.
Car repairs cover moving mechanical engine parts, gearboxes, brakes, clutches and exhausts. Like all reputable garages in Winchester, we guarantee replacement parts and the standard of our workmanship.
MOT testing is one of our more popular garage services and one that every car or LCV, aged three years or over, needs as a mandatory obligation. We perform MOTs in the Class IV category. Please be aware that it is an offence to drive without a valid MOT certificate, and you could face a fine of up to £1000.00 if the police catch you on the road without one.
You can book in for MOT testing up to 28 days before a current certificate expires. For cars that fail their annual MOTs, we offer a full repair and retesting service at our Winchester premises.
If you have a modern car, it will have an onboard computer system to monitor the car electrics. The electrical subsystem relays a fault code to the ECU in the event of something going wrong. We retrieve these codes using specialist equipment that plugs into the ECU. This is a process referred to as engine diagnostics or, in some cases, engine management.
Most garages in Winchester include diagnostics in their services. Our own workshop makes car electrics something of a speciality by investing heavily into the trade’s most advanced equipment.
Additional garage services from our company include new cambelts and replacement tyres.
