To give you one less thing to worry about during this period speak to us today about our winter safety check and get your car ready for winter. Of all the seasons, winter requires the most care and preparation to ensure that you and your family stay safe on the roads. Breakdowns are more common and potentially more dangerous during the winter months than at any other time of the year. It is particularly important to be prepared for the cold spells and difficult road conditions that can arise, especially when snow and ice are about.

What is included within our winter safety check?

To keep you moving this winter we’ll check your cars:

  • Tyres – We will check the overall condition of your tyres including the tread depth and pressure
  • Battery – We will test the batteries charge to ensure you keep moving this winter
  • Coolant / Anti-freeze – We will check the strength and levels

With the short days and bad weather, visibility of the road is vital so we’ll also check your cars:

  • Wiper blades for splits or damage
  • Operation of the windscreen wash system and the level of screen wash and top this up if necessary
  • Light bulbs – faulty or broken bulbs are illegal

Once your check has been completed we will discuss the report with you and provide help and guidance if any elements do not meet the safety requirements.

Why do we check these areas?

Tyres

Tyres are essential in keeping you safe on the roads especially during the winter months with the risk of snow and ice. Part of our winter safety check will include an inspection of your tyres overall condition, tread depth and pressure.

Battery

Battery failure is more common in the winter months for a number of reasons. The colder the temperature gets, the slower the chemical reactions within the battery hence reduced performance. During the winter we naturally use more electrical components such as heating and lights which place additional demands on the battery.

Coolant / Anti-freeze

Your engine’s coolant level should be checked regularly to avoid causing serious damage to your engine. During the winter months, it is essential to check your anti-freeze levels as water alone can freeze which will seriously damage your engine.

Wiper blades and windscreen system and screen wash levels

Shorter days and bad weather mean that visibility on the road is even more important. Part of our safety check includes inspecting your wiper blades to ensure they are free of splits and damage. We also check the operation of your windscreen wash system and top up your screen wash.

Light Bulbs

Ensuring that your vehicle’s lights are working correctly is critical for your own safety and other road users as it allows you to be able to see and help others to see you. Having a faulty or damaged bulb is illegal so make sure you check these on a regular basis.

Call us today and for peace of mind book your winter check for just £31.50 fully inclusive.
