Volvo Service & MOT
John Darke Ltd offers a new quality of service for our Volvo customers. We make servicing your car an experience not a chore.Book your Volvo Service
John Darke Ltd – the name for Volvo in Lincolnshire since 1982.
John Darke Ltd is the longest serving Volvo Service Centre in Lincolnshire and being a market town dealership we do not have the overheads of the larger Volvo Centres. This allows us to charge one of the most competitive labour rates of any dealership in the country. We also offer a different level of service to that of other centres, making the experience as smooth, relaxed and friendly as possible.
While your vehicle is in our care we can offer the latest complimentary Volvo courtesy cars, or, a collection and delivery service, or, if you prefer service while you wait. So keeping your Volvo safe and running like a dream doesn’t have to affect your busy day-to-day life.
All our Volvo staff, whether front-facing or technical, are fully trained to the highest levels and regularly attend the Volvo Training Centre in Daventry to maintain their in-depth product and technical knowledge. We only use genuine Volvo parts and OEM tooling and offer every type of service from simple repairs to full servicing.

Fantastic Benefits of using John Darke
Free video vehicle health check
We connect your Volvo to our computerised diagnostics system to check that all safety systems function correctly. As part of the health check, we also check the status of the battery. Many of today’s devices (such as iPods, mobile phones, navigation units etc) draw power from the battery – by checking the status we offer you peace of mind.
Car Wash and Vac
It’s always nice with a spotlessly clean and newly-washed car, and therefore we will wash your Volvo for you every time you have it in for service at our workshop. With Volvo Service Promise, your car is not only serviced and checked on the inside, it’s also clean and cared for on the outside.
You shouldn't need to be without a car when yours is in for service. This is why we make it easy for you by always offering alternative transport solutions. Book via your personal service contact.
Free Software Upgrades
Volvo cars are packed with computers and control modules and our engineers are constantly developing and improving the software installed to operate them. This means that your Volvo can get a little better at every service, since free software updates are always included. Examples of functions or systems that can be optimised include air conditioning, engine management and driver information. (Please note: Navigation map updates are not included). Updates apply to all Volvo models from model year 1999 and onwards, except the Volvo C70 –05, S/V40 –03, XC/V70 –00.
We will always provide real value for money and transparent pricing. Your car will receive the right service at the right time and the price you pay will be provided to you before work starts. We will also match any like for like written quote for a Volvo Service using the correct oil and Volvo genuine parts from any garage within 20 miles. Our pricing is also available online by visiting our Service Price Indicator
Service book stamp with franchise service history
No need to worry about servicing your Volvo with the dealership you purchases it from. We can help maintain or increase the value of your vehicle with our service stamp.
Personal Service Contact
We’ll introduce you to your very own personal service contact who will answer any questions you may have about your car, and be there to offer advice and support if needed.
Regularly servicing at your authorised Volvo workshop is the best way to ensure trouble-free motoring. It is the only workshop guaranteed to offer you the unique combination of Volvo Genuine Parts, Volvo-unique methods and the expertise of specially trained Volvo technicians. We “live and breathe” Volvo, and we know the cars like our own pocket.
In conjunction with the Volvo Genuine Service, we’ll provide Volvo Assistance for one year at no extra charge. Volvo Assistance means that in case of breakdown, you can get help around the clock. Whether it’s fixing a flat tyre or compensation for accommodation costs while the car is being repaired.
