I think winter’s arrived after how cold it has been today & over night. Only a few days to go until it is officially here. You need to be aware of winter driving safely.
Do yours clear that screen?
Wiper blades should be replaced every six months to a year or as soon as you notice a difference in driving visibility. Wipers are checked on WOF inspection and also routine servicing.
Ensure you use your squirtee’s regularly to keep that windscreen clean on the outside. We use & recommend Bar’s Bugs as the product to full up the windscreen wiper fluid bottle under your bonnet. Please don’t use dish washing detergent. For the inside we recommend you use your air conditioning as it will clear that screen real quick. Alternatively use a micro fibre clean cloth.
Are your tyres up for it?
When we do a WOF or service we will always check the tyres. We list the levels on your invoice & of course advise if they are low and require replacing with a time frame. 1.5 mm tread is actually a legal pass. But our recommendation is a that at 2mm you seriously consider new tyres. Especially in wet weather season. We have a supply of tyre tread checkers/key ring & have been handing out. If you would like one just ask.
Is that vehicle a bit slow/sluggish to start?
Average length of life for a car battery is 3-4 years and if the vehicle isn’t started regularly or driven much you will shorten the batteries life. We have a fancy battery tester on site so can review in only a few minutes. We will do FREE battery testing if pre booked.
So don’t get caught out in the rain! We are a stockist of quality AA Batteries with a 24-36 month warranty.
Lack of parts is still playing a little issue but we will keep you posted. But big thing to be aware of is a shortage on tyres. So do think about this if we recommend.
We have had our apprentice just on 6 months now & he is going great.
Again if you are happy with our service please do give us a review on google or flick us an email as we can put it on our website. Plus you can always become a friend of ours on face book. Or recommend us to family & friends.
Stay warm, healthy & drive safely.
