When we carry out your winter health and safety check we will carry out the following
The condition of your vehicle tyres is especially important when driving in the winter. Worn, damaged or underinflated tyres are a common cause of accidents and can lead to excessive wear and poor fuel economy their condition is often overlooked.
During the cold winter months, batteries will often suffer from failure due to the increased burden of starting a cold engine as well as using lights and heated screens. As the number one call out for the breakdown services a faulty battery can easily be detected with our digital testers.
Coolant & Anti Freeze
Motorists will occasionally check their coolant levels but how often do they check the percentage of antifreeze present in the cooling system? A frozen engine can be very expensive and easily avoidable so we have included an antifreeze test in our essential winter check.
Wipers & Windscreen
The colder wetter weather requires correctly working wiper blades and a good supply of screen wash, our winter safety check includes a thorough inspection of your wiper blades ensuring they will clear any water from your windscreen and a screen wash top up.
Lights & Bulbs
Many modern cars have a blown bulb detection system but many don't! A correctly fitted bulb is essential to a good view of the road ahead as well as allowing your vehicle to be seen by other roads users.
In many cars checking the oil level is not as easy as it used to be and topping up with the correct grade oil is not straightforward either! Our winter safety check includes an oil check to ensure you running with the correct amount of engine oil, as overfilling can be as bad for your engine as not enough oil.
