Quality Car Servicing In Heywood
With Volksmaster opening its new service centre at Heywood, easy access to our premium service quality, convenience and other benefits are available to customers in Heywood and the surrounding areas. Before our Heywood service centre was opened, the closest Volksmaster garage was in Bury.
The new garage is located at 135 York Street in the centre of Heywood and was previously known as Birtwistle’s. The branch is so new as of September ’21 that we’re still waiting for the new signage to be delivered. Our new garage is manned by a specialist team of six people and offers almost all of the services that are currently offered at our garages at Oldham and Bury.
Types Of Vehicles Serviced
Volksmaster are Volkswagen (VAG) specialists, but we also provide high-quality service for cars from other manufacturers. Whether it’s a service, repairs or an MOT, you can count on us. You will get the same friendly, convenient and affordable service at Heywood that our customers enjoy at our other Volksmaster branches.
We provide a better than dealer quality service and repairs at a lower cost with a more personal touch. Like our other branches, you can book services at Heywood online. We also offer a Collection Service or a Courtesy Car to make the whole process hassle free.
Volksmaster offers three levels of periodic servicing: interim, full and major services. All three services include oil and oil filter changes, road test, safety inspections, resetting of service light and service interval display, and software updates (for VAG models). Washing and vacuuming is also included in every service. Volksmaster is authorised to update the digital service records of brands that provide the facility. So, your service history remains intact and you can obtain a hard copy after every service.
In a full service, the air filter and cabin filters are replaced. Brakes are checked thoroughly. Suspension, tyres and other underbody components are also checked. All components in the engine compartment are checked. Transmission oil levels are replenished except for automatics and DSG gearboxes. All other fluids are replaced or topped up as required.
A major service includes everything in the other types of services. Additionally, fuel filter and spark plugs (if applicable) are replaced. Transmission fluids are replaced or replenished (all types of transmissions) and all interior equipment is checked.
You can view the exact details and the pricing on our Servicing Details page.
Other Types of Services Offered

In the UK, a valid MOT certificate is required for private cars older than three years. For taxis and emergency vehicles, MOTs are required after the first year. The vehicle has to be tested and the MOT certificate renewed every subsequent year.
Volksmaster is an authorised centre for performing MOT tests. We perform impartial MOTs and in case of defects, you can get your vehicle repaired at any garage of your choice and then retake the tests. MOT retests are free.
The Volksmaster Advantages
Volksmaster is a reputed garage offering high-quality specialist servicing at very competitive rates. We are confident about our pricing. If you find a better price with the same type and quality of service, we will match it.
Dealer Quality Service
We offer a choice of service options. You can opt for a service according to the main dealer specification or according to our in-house service schedule that we have put together after many years of experience with high-end cars.
If you choose the main dealer specification, we service your car according to the manufacturer specifications and use only manufacturer-supplied spares. This service is more appropriate for cars under warranty.
You can also opt for a service according to our inhouse specifications. In this case, we use high-quality OEM spares. This is ideal and economical for cars that are out of warranty. You will get all the specialist expertise of our garage in both types of service.
Get Your Car Serviced Without A Garage Visit
You can get your car serviced or repaired without visiting our garage. You can book your car service or repair online. We will collect your car from a location of your choice (within our area limits) and return it to you after the work is complete. We always contact the vehicle owner with recomendations and an explanation before undertaking any work.
If you choose to wait at the garage while your car is serviced, you can use our comfortable waiting area and enjoy a complementary coffee. In the rare case that your vehicle needs major repairs and has to remain at our garage for a couple of days, or if you need to remain mobile you can book one of our courtesy cars for a very small fee.
Volksmaster is a family run business which means we pull together and go that extra mile to ensure all our customers are 100% satisfied with all of our service offerings. At the new Volksmaster service centre at Heywood, you will experience the same high quality and convenient service that you are used to at all Volksmaster service garages.
