Ford Express Servicing Option

Guaranteed 60 Mins or less

Life is busy and in some circumstances our customers need to get their service completed within a shorter time. Rates Ford are very proud to be one of the first Ford Dealerships in the UK to offer a Ford Express Servicing option. With this service two fully trained service technicians work on the vehicle together, on the same ramp, to complete the service from top to bottom.

Pay Monthly Servicing
