Log Book Service

Authorised Log Book Services

A log book service is when your car is serviced in accordance with the vehicle manufacturers specifications. A logbook service is sometimes referred to as a hand book service. Log book services involve checking and/or replacing certain components, parts and fluids on your car at set kilometre intervals as recommended by the manufacturer.

People are led to believe that they have to get their new car serviced through a dealership however, this is not the case. The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission has clearly stated that you can have your car serviced by any mechanic or service centre that is qualified to do so without voiding your car’s warranty.

Mechanics or service centres will do the same checks, services and work that the car dealerships would, except you’ll save a lot of money. DL Mechanical is fully qualified to perform log book services and has all the tools and computers to do so within our workshop. As a qualified service centre, we can also stamp your logbook.
