What safety measures are you taking?

A very comprehensive risk assessment according to the government guidelines has been carried out. Such as two metre social distancing, washing hands regularly for 20 seconds and appropriate PPE.  This has helped us assess the best way forward to keep our staff and customers safe.

Do I need to do anything before bringing my car in for my booking?

All customers are requested to have a clean and hoovered car to enable us to wipe down the interior prior to working on your vehicle. All customers are requested to leave their service booklets and locking wheel bolt key on the front passenger seat    

Will I have to drop off and collect my car at a particular time? 

A drop off and collection time will be agreed with you at point of booking. If we change this due to additional work being carried out we will contact you to agree an alternative time. If you are unable to make your allotted time for collection then please contact us via phone to arrange another suitable time.

Our reception side window will be open for you to deposit your keys safely through our new drop off system.

We will remove the seat covers and floor mats. We will then wipe down your steering wheel, doorhandles and keys with anti bacterial wipes prior to you collecting your vehicle.

Do you offer a discount for NHS workers?

As a “Thank you” for all the hard work that our NHS staff have been doing during the COVID 19 pandemic, we would like to offer a 20% discount to all NHS staff (on production of a valid NHS card).

We would like to thank all our customers and staff for their hard work, patience, dedication and commitment in making this work during such unprecedented times.

Our procedures will be constantly reviewed in line with government guidelines, and once it is safe to do so we will start to re-introduce our other services.

NEW HEALTH AND SAFTEY GUIDANCE FOR COVID 19

We have carried out a very comprehensive risk assessment according to the government guidelines.

Such as 2 metre social distancing, washing hands regularly for 20 seconds and appropriate PPE. This has then enabled us to assess the best way forward in keeping our staff and customers safe.

The new procedures that we have put in place are:

  • We will be operating a waiting list after our initial customers are rebooked in, from missing their appointments during lockdown
  • Then by appointment only by phone or email
  • All customers will be given an allotted time to arrive, park and deposit keys through a side window
  • All customers are requested to have a clean and hoovered car to enable us to wipe down the interior prior to working on your vehicle.
  • All customers are requested to leave their service booklets and locking wheel bolt key on the front passenger seat.
  • We will then wipe the steering wheel and door handles of your vehicle and put seat covers and footwells with protective floor mats.
  • Payment will be taken over the phone before collecting your vehicle.
  • We will then replace service booklet and locking wheel bolt to the passenger front seat.
  • We will not be offering our courtesy car or collection and delivery service at this time.
  • Our reception door will be locked  at all times and arrows will be directing you in the carpark upon your arrival to us.
  • We will not be offering any waiting jobs.

This procedure is subject to change if needed.

We look forward to seeing you all again soon, keep well  and stay safe.

Genuine V.A.G brake fluid machine


 

Here is our new upgraded genuine V.A.G. Machine that is identical to the ones that main dealerships use. This enables us to extract the old brake fluid from the reservoir and carry out pressure test on the brake hydraulic system.

Brake fluid, also known as hydraulic fluid, is responsible for moving the various components of your vehicle’s braking system. The fluid operates under high temperatures and pressure, without it, your car would not be able to stop when you push the brake pedal inside your vehicle. This is how it works:

  • The driver depresses the brake pedal
  • The pedal compresses a piston inside the brake caliper.
  • This compression increases the pressure inside the brake lines and sends the brake fluid into motion.
  • The pressure of the brake fluid then causes the brake rotors to squeeze down on brake pads, which then make contact with the wheels, slowing and eventually stopping wheel rotation and also the vehicle itself.

Most of the manufacturers suggest that brake fluid should be replaced every two years.

Apart from a new vehicle when it would be 3 years old then every 2 years.

'Pulse 8' Four Wheel Alignment

We are very excited to announce the arrival of the ’Pulse 8’ Four Wheel Alignment which is ‘ADAS’ ready. If you would like to book your vehicle in give us a call or e-mail us. Wheel alignment sometimes referred to as tracking, is part of standard motor vehicle maintenance that consists of adjusting the angles of wheels to the car manufacturer specifications. The purpose of these adjustments is to reduce tyre wear, and to ensure that vehicle travel is straight and true.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

What is GDPR?

The GDPR is Europe's new framework for data protection laws. It replaces the previous 1995 data protection directive, which current UK law is based upon. Its how we collect and process personal data.

The new regulation starts on 25 May 2018. It will be enforced by the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).
