Great service at attractive prices

Ford Essential Service is a manufacturer-specific servicing solution that enables you to access the very highest standards of care and attention for prices that are affordable. Exclusively for Ford vehicles that are older, Ford Essential Service enables you to take advantage of the expertise provided by seasoned technicians such as those at M53 Ford in Ellesmere Port and Birkenhead, Cheshire. With workshops that are state-of-the-art and packed with the latest tools and diagnostic equipment, we at M53 Ford are delighted to be able to provide this innovative servicing option.

Among those services offered through Ford Essential Service is a comprehensive health check. Taking a look at some of the key components of your vehicle - such as fluid levels and wiper blades - an experienced technician will fulfil a 30-point Ford eCheck. Also available is an MOT and service package, which will enable your vehicle to secure its annual MOT certificate either with a service prior or without.

Finally, we are also pleased to provide you with Ford Essential Service tyres for prices that are among the most competitive around. Not only do we offer replacements from some of the industry’s biggest names, but we’ll also dispose of your current tyres and fit and balance the new ones. With some of the most talented and experienced technicians in the region, and with the facilities that are second-to-none, you can be confident that your Ford will be returned in a condition that is as good as new.
