After a home the second biggest expense we will incur is usually a car. Therefore, we need to service it and MOT it accordingly. And Park Lane Autos of Corsham is just such a place to help.

Park Lane Autos in Corsham are there to assist with car servicing, diagnostics, MOT and repair six days a week and at very reasonable prices.

Do you know what the letters MOT stand for? I couldn't get it. So read on and you'll discover what those letters mean. You never know it may be a question in the next pub quiz down the Old Dog and Duck.

It got me thinking as I took a recent took a trip to Corsham in the beautiful County of Wiltshire. There are things about Corsham you may not know.

For example:

Park Lane Autos of Corsham WiltshireCorsham - The history of the name goes back to Old English for homestead, or village.

It is recorded that Corsham was called Coseham in 1001, known as Cosseha in 1086 and as Cosham as late as 1611.

History - The area of Corsham belonged to the King in Saxon times, when there was a large forest throughout the many areas we now live in or drive through.

Corsham Court - A royal manor going back to Saxon Kings. Some believe it was the seat of Ethelred the Unready and a home to William the Conqueror.

Then becoming a place of modern horticultural fashion in the 18th Century for the design and build of its gardens and grounds. No other than landscape architect, Capability Brown got his little mits on it. Gaining the reputation as 'England's greatest gardener.

Bath Stone - One of a number of quarries which supply not only Bath with its fine buildings of yellow, but many of the towns and villages in Somerset and Wiltshire as well.

Industry - Once upon a time Corsham was well known for its export of high quality wool and cloth. The industry was highly successful making a great deal of wealth for the town and its merchants. So there is more to Corsham than meets the eye as one drives through.

And just off the main Bath Road is Park Lane Autos of Corsham. A very happy sight for one man and his machine, which picked up a nail as a passenger in the front nearside tyre. A swift diversion to the guys at Park Lane Autos and the tyre was repaired and me and my faithful jalopy were on our way once again.

I may have just got a tyre repaired on this occasion, but what if I need more for my car? As a driver of cars, motorbikes, lorries and a tractor once upon a time. I appreciate the need to keep up with the maintenance of my vehicles. All vehicles need regular and reliable servicing and maintenance checks to keep them going on and on and on. Something Mrs B says I do when I write a blog. Hah! Cheeky little back seat driver for sure.

Why then do we need to service our beloved machines?

Whether you own a new car or a used car it needs to be serviced at regular intervals. Whatever the make of your car or however sophisticated it is with technology, servicing it at regular intervals is essential. Your car is a mechanical machine when driven, has thousands of parts that are working very hard and fast at times. There is a great deal of heat and friction generated and these parts eventually wear and sometimes wear out. Your car would have come with an owners’ manual, which tells you exactly when to get the car serviced. It will also tell you at which various levels of service what needs to be replaced. 

Whether it's changing the simple things like oil or oil filters to more elaborate parts like timing belts, they do all need, at some time or other, to be replaced during the life of the car. And by doing this at the right intervals means your car could be the vintage car of the future. Because cars can last well into the future if you look after them and service them as they should be serviced.

By getting your car serviced regularly you not only increase the life of the car but you also improve the efficiency of the car, also reducing fuel emission’s which is important to the environment. You will in turn experience  less car problems and potential breakdown. Knowing that the car is serviced regularly reduces the risk of suffering a major breakdown and paying for costly repairs.
