The Importance of a Professional Des Moines Ford Repair & Service Provider
Many repair shops offer a cheap oil change to attract customers. They are performed by entry level technicians using low grade filters and oils, making it simple to charge $20-$30 and survive.
At Beckley’s we have always seen an oil service as the perfect time to have your car thoroughly inspected to insure that it’s safe and reliable for months to come.
An oil change at Beckley’s is performed by the Certified Master Technician who has specialized in your make of car – whether it’s a foreign or domestic model. Your Master Tech is totally familiar with your car, what to look for, and how to respond to prevent problems and keep your car safe and reliable.
We use the approved oils and filters (Mobil 1) which last for extended drain intervals and protect any warranties you have.
A 5qt. conventional oil change starts at $40 and a full synthetic starts at $60. Estimating $80-$150 for high performance models like the BMW or Mercedes V8’s makes this a low budget commitment.
Each service includes a thorough 30 point written inspection, plus we reset all your service computers and lights.
Do you really want a cut-rate oil change for your car? Have your oil service performed at Beckley’s and enjoy all the benefits our experience and specialized service provides at a sensible price.
You will always receive an estimate after we inspect your car and before we perform any service so you can chose what fits your time and budget.
Ford maintenance items that don’t follow a specific schedule but make your car last longer and drive better are;
Wheel alignment service
A new set of tires can cost upwards of $800 or more. But they could cost much more in the long run if you only get half the life they could provide. We have an approved wheel alignment system for all makes and models. For $60 we can quickly take a ‘snapshot’ of your Ford’s wheel alignment and ensure you’re getting the best handling and life from your tires. We recommend this once a year and it can easily be combined with your oil service. If adjustments are required budget $135, sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less depending on the range of the adjustments required. When the alignment is correct, your tires will last and your BMW will handle like a go-cart instead of a mini-van.
Tire balance and rotation
Every time we perform a service, we will measure your tires and make any recommendations that will extend their life and improve your ride.
Computer software updates.
Modern Fords have dozens of computers controlling everything from braking to engine performance, climate control and even your car’s radio. Just like your home or business computer, Ford provides computer software updates for these systems. We can recommend and provide the software updates that improve your safety, performance and comfort.
Over our 34 years of specialized car service we have found that owners who maintain their Fords well are far more satisfied with their cars. They are very rarely let down by their vehicles – if at all. Some owners feel the only maintenance their Ford needs is a periodic “quick lube” and “bring it in when there is a problem.” As you might expect, these are the cars that come in on a tow truck. Expensive repairs and down time can be avoided by proper maintenance.
Please call us with any questions or concerns about maintaining your Ford. We will be happy to talk with you about getting the most from your car and scheduling you for service on your Ford.
