Basic Service

Get your regular basic servicing done at VTNZ by our trained Automotive Technicians to ensure your car is reliable, safe and road ready. We’ll make sure that your battery is charging and in good condition as well as 12 other key essentials of your vehicle’s safety and condition.

A Basic Service looks at 14 major features that aren’t part of a Warrant of Fitness, helping to improve the life and efficiency of your vehicle.

  • Minimises major and potentially avoidable repair work
  • Helps keep you and your passengers safe
  • Retains the value of your car


A VTNZ Basic Service covers the basic car maintenance that you might not have the time for. At just $45, or $28 when added to your WoF, it’s great value and could save you big time on repair bills down the track.

What’s not in a Basic Service?

A Basic Service covers general preventative care and basic servicing essentials. It does not include engine oil and filter changes.

I was glad to have purchased the Basic Service Combo - the VTNZ Automotive Technician gave me good information about the state of my car, giving me confidence to drive around in a safe car.
