The best car repair and servicing workshops offer expertise, effective solutions and value for money. Here are six top-rated workshops to check out and some tips on finding your ideal car workshop. 

Owning a car requires sending it for regular maintenance and servicing so as to ensure reliable performance and safer operation on the roads. Also, should your car be damaged in an accident, anything beyond minor scratches and dents will likely require a trip to the workshop.

For inexperienced or new drivers, the question you may have is, “Which car workshop should I go to?”. And that’s a perfectly reasonable one to ask, given how dishonest workshop operators are still around waiting to prey on those unaware. 

Well, the short and safe answer is to follow your insurer’s instructions in case of a traffic accident. But what about less dramatic circumstances, such as routine servicing and maintenance, like tyre and oil checks, air-con cleaning, or refreshing your car with a car grooming session? 

And what about if you’re thinking of juicing up your car’s performance and driving experience by upgrading parts and accessories and perhaps even a little performance tuning to keep your vehicle purring like a kitten? 

Well, in that case, you’ll be spoilt for choice, given that our tiny island houses around 2,000 motor repair workshops with about 10,000 technicians! 

It’s likely that you may take some time before finding your ideal car workshop (and one that your insurer will accept), but to help you get started, we’ve highlighted six top-rated workshops that can cater to your car servicing and repairs needs.

Tips for choosing a car repair workshop in Singapore

Accessibility and location

Since you’ll need to send in your vehicle or pick it up from the workshop, you’ll want to pick a service centre that is accessible and convenient for you. After all, you’ll be without your car, so the last thing you want is to have to go somewhere ulu. 

Hence, start your search by looking for reputable workshops near your home, office, or a location that is easy for you to get to. 


Expertise

If you think about it, cars are pretty similar until they are not. Due to different manufacturing and design factors, cars from certain manufacturers may have peculiarities that are best attended to by those in the know. 

Generally, conventional tasks such as tyre repairs and replacement and routine servicing can be amply managed by any general workshop. However, if you’re seeking assistance for a particular issue or require specific repairs, it might be best to approach a service centre familiar with your car’s make and model. 

Official workshops and authorised dealers are often the best for this. 


Workshop capacity

Smaller, independent workshops are capable of doing just as good a job as their larger counterparts – up until they encounter a backlog of orders. That’s when you may have to face a longer wait for your turn. 

If it’s an urgent issue that cannot wait, a larger service provider with multiple workshops is likely your best bet for swift and effective repairs. The downside is you may have to deal with a slightly higher bill, but that should not pose a problem if you’re properly insured


Reputation

If you really don’t know where to look, ask your friends or colleagues for recommendations. If they have been using a workshop or two with no complaints, you’re likely to also have a satisfactory experience. 

Also, there’s nothing wrong with just sending your car for servicing to an authorised dealer. These official service centres are well-trained to service your car in the best way possible and will use genuine parts for repairs and replacements. 

Yes, this may result in a higher bill, but at least you can rest assured that you aren’t frankensteining your vehicle with non-original parts that may lead to problems further down the road.
