Another service R S Autos can offer is the replacement, fitting and balancing of tyres and also puncture repairs.



Unlike many vehicle maintenance garages, R S Autos do not have a set price for services. This is because each service costing will vary between each vehicle and customer. If an oil filter costs £15 for one car, it may only cost £5 for the next and here at R S Autos we believe in charging the customer just for the parts and labour that their specific car, or van, requires.

Not only does the costing of parts vary for each car, so does the type of service required. Do you need just the air and oil filter changed or does your car need new brake discs and pads?

Here at R S Autos we will only ever charge you for something that is specifically needed for your car which means you can be sure that the price we charge you is the best price for you.

About Us

R S Autos started out as Richard Simmons, the owner, working as a mobile mechanic before setting up premises on his parents land in Chailey. It was while he was here that his brother Dave would earn a few quid helping out when he wasn't at college.

Before long the neighbours had had enough though and Richard moved on again. This time to Plumpton where he stayed for 9 years.

While he was here, Richard built up a solid customer base and his name quickly spread. This was a small vehicle repair garage that was able to give that extra personal touch to its customers that the larger, more commercial, garages are unable to do so.

As the customers increased, so did the work which meant a larger premises was needed. In November 2010 Richard Simmons Vehicle Maintenance moved to Mid Sussex Business Park and with the move became R S Autos Vehicle Maintenance and also, DumpSport Performance.

It is here that Richard and Dave will offer you the highest customer service with that down to earth friendly atmosphere you get with family businesses.

Air Conditioning Servicing

Air Conditioning was once only a feature of prestige vehicles, these days over 80% of cars have it fitted as standard.

It uses the same principle to operate as your kitchen fridge and just like your fridge, if you switch it off for months on end the refridgerant gas goes flat, accumulates moisture and the system fails.

Most motorists in the UK do just that and come the summer months we switch the air-con on and out comes warm air.

Air conditioning is not just a gimmick to keep you cool, it is a means of keeping your vehicle free from unwanted pollutants and annoying condensation during all seasons. As such it is recommended to have it serviced due to the natural loss of refridgerant through the seals and pipes etc. In fact manufactures estimate a 15% loss each year!

This loss will affect every componant and can lead to poor fuel economy and excess moisture in the system leading to expensive failure.

Here at R S Autos we can service your vehicle, while you wait, at a price of £70 including the VAT. Just call us or pop in to make your appointment. Don't leave it to the summer, get it serviced today!
