Why do we check these areas…
Battery failure is more common in the winter months for a number of reasons. The colder the temperature gets, the slower the chemical reactions within the battery hence reduced performance. During the winter we naturally use more electrical components such as heating and lights which place additional demands on the battery.
Tyres are essential in keeping you safe on the roads especially during the winter months with the risk of snow and ice. Part of our free winter safety check will include an inspection of your tyres overall condition, tread depth and pressure.
Your antifreeze level should be checked regularly to avoid causing serious damage to your engine. During the winter months, it is essential to check your anti-freeze levels as water alone can freeze rendering your coolant system useless.
Ensuring your vehicle’s lights are working correctly is critical for your own safety and other road users as it allows you to be able to see and help others to see you. Having a faulty or damaged bulb is illegal so make sure you check these on a regular basis.
Shorter days and bad weather mean that visibility on the road is even more important. Therefore part of our free safety check includes inspecting your wiper blades to ensure they are free of splits and damage. We also check the operation of your windscreen wash system and top up your screen wash.
