Wow what a response we have had to our latest Winter Check. We have made it bigger and better this year and it has gone down a storm!
We have completed hundreds of these checks now - we have a lovely group of our regular customers who come each year for the reassurance that their car is ready for the winter. Occasionally we have picked up on brake fluid that is beginning to be compromised but that is still safe. As we never do work that isn't necessary, we have the confidence of our customers - it's a genuine check.
Then we have completed Winter Checks for customers that have perhaps only been in for an MOT in the last year - and here is where we tend to pick up a few other little niggly things that need to be rectified - sometimes its the coolant that needs more than a top up - it needs a full change, and sometimes it has been the oil quality (which YES we actually analyse) that might be compromised with contaminants or the PH level might be showing that it needs changing. This is a great way for people to look after their cars if they aren't opting for a regular service - we can tell them what really needs doing to keep them safe and on the road.
Lastly we have brought in many new customers for a Winter Check. It's always such a pleasure to meet new customers - some are local but increasingly they are from further afield. They really love our video reporting and the way that we go the extra mile for them.
So all in all, a fabulous Winter Check season - which hasn't finished yet either! If you know of someone who would like the reassurance of having their car checked - book them in and we are happy to see them either before or after Christmas
