Industry Insider Information on Oil Change Prices

Oil Change Prices vary between companies. We all know it’s important to change the oil in your car on a regular basis. Most car manufacturers recommend that you change the oil in your car every 10,000 kilometers if you are driving in mild conditions, or 5,000 kilometers if you are driving in harsher conditions.

Oil Change Prices – What Is The Difference?

A lot of people have a habit of taking their cars to an oil change station and just paying the $49 for a quick oil swap, and while that’s certainly better than nothing, you’re missing out on a good chance to give your car a little extra care and attention.

If your car is going to be out of your hands for a little while, why not take it to a licensed Red Seal Mechanic, so that instead of just a quick oil change, you get a 30 point mechanical engine and vehicle inspection.

For people who use their cars a lot, this serves as a regular monitoring service for your vehicle. The mechanic will check you tire tread depth and tire pressure, the engine’s running component, the exterior lights, your fluid levels, filters, and numerous other parts of the car, giving you a heads-up as to any potential failures, and alerting you to servicing needs before they become an issue.

Modern cars are well made, and if you take good care of them they will last for a long time, but if you allow small problems to go unchecked, then you might end up with a serious (and potentially very expensive) issue on your hands. By the time you hear grinding noises or can feel juddering, the damage has already been done.

What are Licensed Red Seal Mechanics?


Licensed Red Seal Mechanics are technicians that have been endorsed by their province, and who have completed a stringent examination to prove that they know their trade. The Red Seal is available for a number of trades, including electricians and carpenters as well as motor vehicle mechanics. When you bring your car in for an oil change and service, you can be confident that it will be looked at by someone who knows cars well, and who will give you an honest assessment of what your car needs. You can then schedule your own maintenance or book your car in to get issues fixed as necessary. If you get a clean bill of health for your car, then this will give you peace of mind and you can continue with your usual maintenance until the next oil change is due.

“I went to Car Craft a few years ago BECAUSE I was looking for a car shop that had integrity and offered only services that were needed as cost has always been a factor since I was female and taken advantage of previously by unscrupulous service shops.” Lavana
I own a Ford 2004 F350 Diesel and have had terrible experiences with other shops.  After my first experience with Tony and Car Craft, I know I’ve found the right shop.  I get better mileage now which relates to less wear on my vehicle thanks to Car Craft. Wayne Donecz

I got a recommendation from the local Napa parts dealer for Car Craft to help me with my check engine light coming on while I was visiting my parents in Kelowna from Puyallup, Washington. I was leaving to go home the next morning over the Coquihalla Pass Highway. It was after 3 pm when I pulled in. They took great care of me and had the problem diagnosed and the light turned off and I was on my way just after 4 pm. Fantastic people with a great attitude to help you.Hats off to these folks it’s not about the money to them it’s all about taking care of you. ANONYMOUS
Norm has been very professional. Bob & Lynn Houle
Fast, friendly service. I did not feel bamboozled by these guys – they explained what I needed to have done and were great about telling me the work that was not necessary. I really appreciated that. I think women can rest assured that they are not getting ripped off when the bring their cars in on their own. That is a real concern for a lot of us. Kate
I found the staff to be friendly, professional and extremely competent. I would have no hesitation to recommend them to others. I will be using their services again in the future. ANONYMOUS
Rob, Norm, Tony and their crew are as professional and trustworthy as I have seen in any profession. I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to look after my vehicles. Both my wife and I take our personal and work vehicles to CarCraft. We are very grateful for their outstanding service. ANONYMOUS
Well done and great service Frank Sebastian
