Is your car ready to use, after a year of reduced usage?

Is your car ready to use, after a year of reduced usage? A year of lockdowns and staying local, the country is beginning to open back up again and we are all starting to travel further. Many cars have spent more time sat on the driveway than usual.  If you are planning a longer distance trip, it may be worth getting a small service and inspection carried out to check it over for any potential problems. As a result of travel restrictions this year, a lot more people will be relying on their cars for UK based holidays. We would advise booking your car in now to ensure your car is in tip top condition ready for enjoying the year ahead.

Car Maintenance

Car Maintenance: Cars can be expensive, but keeping on top of car maintenance and servicing can help reduce the costs in the long run.  By leaving a fault or not regularly maintaining your car, you increase the chances of the initial fault developing into something much worse and often costing you more to put right. We find that cars that are serviced annually and have faults addressed quickly, have a much lower need for additional work and are less likely to break down on you.
