Vehicle Health Check

“Wear and tear items” on your vehicle are put under extra strain due to more frequent use of lights, heaters and wipers through the winter. Our technicians can carry out a visual health check to assess the status of those key “wear and tear” items, identifying those that may need to be replaced over the winter months. 

Tyre safety check

Take advantage of our complimentary tyre safety check to check the tyre wear and pressures for optimum grip on wintry roads.  With our price-match guarantee, we ensure that any replacement tyres required are competitively priced, whatever the make and model of your vehicle.  We can fit them while you wait in the comfort of our showroom facilities.

Winter wheels and tyres

Once the temperature hits 7 degrees your standard tyres begin to harden and provide less grip on the road surface at the time when you need the most.  Winter tyres are specially designed for colder weather so ask our Parts Department for more information on the difference winter tyres could make to your driving experiences throughout the season.

Coolant Check

Regulating the temperature of your engine, your coolant system is designed to prevent overheating or freezing in more extreme conditions.  Before the colder weather kicks in is the ideal time to get the strength and level of the coolant checked to make sure it can regulate your engine effectively and efficiently.
