Servicing and PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid and Electric Vehicle) is not quite the same as servicing any other vehicle.
There are a number of elements within the PHEV car that are different to regular cars and require specialist knowledge and training to maintain and work on. Our mechanics are trained and certified to work with high voltage systems, hybrid engines, electrical motors, power inverter systems, energy/hardware systems, electric control propulsion sensing systems, battery regeneration braking systems and other specific elements. These require specialist knowledge and equipment that require investment. At Hillclimb Garage we recognise that these cars are already in the High Wycombe area and yet the choice around servicing and repairs are fairly limited. Up until now, a main dealer was the safest and most reliable destination but now you can save money by choosing an Independent Garage with specialist investment and capabilities.
Our Master Tech Ryan is qualified to IMI Level 4 (at time of writing, there were only 10 others in the UK trained to this recognised level)
We intend to not only provide this specialist care, but to do it in our own Hillclimb Garage way. Our multi-award winning service brings a level of transparency and trust that our customers enjoy greatly. We are dedicated to begin to bridge the gap between the confusing world of hybrids and electric ownership and how that actually would look in your own life.
On our website and through newsletters and blogs, we are going to be asking questions like 'What do you need to know once you have brought your hybrid/electric car home?' and 'What are the vital safety issues that you should be aware of when you own a hybrid or electric vehicle?' 'How do I jump start my car?' 'Can I get my car towed away safely?' These are the daunting subjects that can be off putting when you are choosing to jump into a hybrid/electric car, so this knowledge is designed to give you confidence to step into the future with confidence.
For those of you who may be considering using Hillclimb Garage for the first time, here are some things that our customers really appreciate about our service:
