Tyre Inspection

Don’t overlook the importance of your tyres. Our Winter Car Check includes checking tread depths and overall tyre condition to ensure optimal grip and safety on the road.

Battery Inspection

Temperature changes can affect your battery’s performance. Our technicians will check and test your battery to ensure it’s properly charged, protected, and securely installed. This way, you won’t be left without power when you need it the most.

Coolant and Antifreeze Check

Prevent engine breakdowns by checking the coolant and antifreeze. This helps protect your engine from freezing and potential damage caused by low temperatures.

Windscreen Wipers Inspection

In winter, clear visibility is vital. Our technicians will inspect your windscreen wipers and washer bottle fluid, ensuring they’re in good condition to clear salt, water, and road grime from your view.

Lights Inspection

With longer nights, proper functioning headlights and taillights become even more crucial. Our inspection will ensure your lights are working correctly, keeping you safe and legal on the road.

Oil Check

Avoid breakdowns and engine damage by checking your oil. Our technicians will assess oil levels and advise on the appropriate action in colder weather.

Body and Trim Inspection.

Our technicians will look over your vehicle’s body panels glass and trim to ensure everything is secure and correctly fitted.

Paint Inspection

To ensure your vehicle is prepared for the winter weather and the salted roads we inspect every panel for chips or damage that will leave the surface at risk of corrosion or paint failure. We also check paint protection if applied for any areas of failure.
