All mechanical equipment, regardless of make or model or age or function, will benefit from regular servicing. For engines, the service can help avoid breakdowns, extend engine life, and reduce emissions.
Most major engine manufacturers have published maintenance schedules. These specify the tasks to be performed and the frequency. In most cases maintenance will be triggered by engine hours or calendar days, whichever comes first. For the average owner this means an annual service, which doesn't have to be left till a couple of weeks before Christmas.
When there is a published schedule, the service will be performed as prescribed using genuine parts. In other cases work to be performed can be decided in conjunction with the owner, or based on our standard service.
There are a number of advantages in having service work performed by Whangarei Marine Services as an authorised dealer
- Records can show work has been performed by a recognised service agent, for both warranty requirements and resale value
- Technicians keep abreast of Volvo Penta and Yanmar service builtens, potentially fixing problems before they appear
- Late model Volvo Penta engines can be scanned for faults using the Vodia tool, with work performed recorded against the serial number for ongoing global access
