    Have you tried Marquis I think it is at Chain Caul Way, Preston or do you need it closer. Possibly the company that took over from Brown hills, Blackpool Road, Preston or Motor World near Lytham

    Thanks for your response. Preston is close enough, will give Marquis a call. Has anybody any recommendations on this firm.
    Thanks

    Have you not thought of doing it yourself? I did ours last month, the oil, oil filter, air filter and fuel filter were only £66.00. I could help you with it if you like and you will know how to do it in future.

    Ha ha. I thought that but a garage would be cheaper than me especially putting the bits back right.

    We take ours to West Coast Motors on Preston Old Road.
    Been going there for years with our cars and he now does servicing and mot on motorhome.
    The man to speak to is John on 01253 761728. Tell him you got his number off Tom Atkinson.
    Highly recommend him.

    Marquis will be ok for hab service but they aren't cheap. If you have a local garage that you trust ask them, my MH is mechanically serviced by the same garage that do my car. If Lancaster/Morecambe is acceptable then I can highly recommend Michael O'Connors.

    Marquis don't do the engine work. They farm it out to another company, so my choice would be to miss out the middle man

    If it's the engine service, you can take it to any competent garage that can fit your size vehicle.
    It doesn't have to be a mh dealer.
