Female Friendly Garage Derby …
Success As Female Friendly Garage Derby Hosts Its First Ladies Night
Success As Female Friendly Garage Derby Hosts Its First Ladies Night … We had our very first Ladies Night here at The Kilburn Garage last Friday. We invited 16 women into the garage to partake in an evening full of fun. Each lady that arrived that evening left learning something new about there car.
The Evening started at 6pm in our reception area where each lady was given a name badge and a glass of prosecco or orange juice. When everyone had arrived Emma introduced the team to the ladies and split them all into two equal sized groups. Group one followed Jim over the the Lights and Levels station where he showed everyone how to check engine bay levels and how to replace light bulbs. All the ladies were great, they got there hands dirty and got involved changing bulbs and checking levels.
The second group followed Andy over to the Tyres and Brakes station where he showed examples on brake pads and discs that would and wouldn’t pass an MOT. Each lady seemed shocked to learn that MOT standards are bare minimum and all agreed they wouldn’t want to drive there vehicle on brakes like that. Andy then moved onto tyre conditions, showing everyone signs to look for when tyres need replacing.
The ladies had a brake for some food before everyone took part in our famous Spark Plug Challenge. Sarah won the Dash Cam for removing the four spark plugs from the cylinder head in the fastest time. As the evening came to an end we handed each lady a winter pack, a goodie bag and checked they all got what they wanted out of the evening. We listened to any feedback they had and said our goodbyes.
We’ve had so much great feedback from this event we will be sure to do another one in the future. If you are interested in the next Ladies Night keep your eyes on our Facebook page – Derby Servicesure Autocentre Ltd for updates. Whats amazing to hear is that all 16 ladies said they agreed we are a female friendly garage and would recommend us to any of there friends.
Here’s what a few of the Ladies said about our evening –
