Car Servicing-Halifax-UK-Some advice about keeping your car in good and safe condition

Car Servicing-Halifax-UK; Many motorists have major problems when it comes to  car servicing,

 

Car Servicing-Halifax-UK; Most cars need an annual” major servicing”, and in my belief depending on mileage should have one or even two what I call “engine servicing” every year.  This, as a rule, means the oil and filter changed  and the rest of the levels topped up. Cars over three years old could and perhaps should have the main service carried out at the same time as the MOT test.

Your garage should advise you to have test carried out prior to the servicing, this is always best practice and is recommended by the Ministry of Transport as the correct procedure. It also gives you control of your purse strings, indeed,  what you should do is instruct the garage to notify you of any failures that the test may throw up. You must also ask your garage to give you an estimate of the cost of repairs to your car to get your car through the test.
Many customers of servicing centres do this because if the cost of your repair schedule is high, you may not be able to afford to have the car serviced, indeed you can then cancel the service for a later time when you can afford to have the servicing carried out. The finest practice though is to have the test and the service carried out on the same day. This will ensure that you car will be in tip top condition for your summer holidays or indeed that harsh winter to come.

Look for a Unipart servicing centre

Most accomplished garages  carry out servicing  cars to a high standard. They will carry out menu servicing according to the manufacturers advice. Indeed many garages and auto centres use a servicing  menu. That is specialized for your car by typing your registration number into an  automotive computer. Using software that prints out the exact service menu for your car. This also tells the engineer the exact type of oils to use.  This is essential due the different types of oil now used in up to date car engines. Another benefit of using this technology. Is that the processor will recommend on the time or mileage it takes before your cam belt requires changing. This, in turn, should come in the form of recommendation written as an advisory on your “work to do  sheet”.

Another good piece of advice is that if you are new to an area. You do not know where to have your car serviced it look for a garage carrying the MotorCodes Code Of Practise sign .This will ensure that you will get reasonable prices for a service and repairs.Because the garage has been checked for good practice and procedures by the RAC of Great Britain. Therefore any quality control procedures by the auto centre should give you confidence enough that if any problems occur. Consequently they will be dealt with in a fair and correct conduct. In general, any garage you carries out MOT testing,  are generally up to a good quality and are also regulated  and  controlled by the Vehicle Standards Agency.

Snow and ice were the cause of more than 6,000 road accidents in Great Britain last year, according to statistics issued by the Department for Transport (DfT) this week.

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

Snowing scenes like this call for “Winters to be fitted ” Winter Tyres Work

Winter tyres have in the past three years helped millions of motorists to

make safer journeys and arrive home safely, remember Winter Tyres Work . We are now approaching the time, usually November time when you should fit your winter tyres, or if you do not have any then you should consider buying yourself a set.

Even if you can’t afford a set of four then it is it is still a better and safer proposition to fit a pair on your drive wheels. Out of all the thousands of customers that have had winter tyres fitted, I have never had a single complaint about the  performance, in fact most drivers will give them a raving revue.

When the weather gets this bad then Winter Tyres Work

This is one of the reasons why the fleet companies are fitting winters to their fleets?Winter Tyres Work . They know that it makes sense to fit them for the safety aspect and also they know that it will benefit the drivers, when they are out in snow and also wet weather, and when the fleets buy them you know they must be good as they will not waste a penny unless it is necessary.

Winter Tyres Work its a fact

We at Pellon Tyres here in Halifax West Yorkshire recommend that you should go for an economy winter tyre such as Jinhu winters if you are on a low budget, or an excellent mid-range tyre is the Nokian winters  and for the SUV or larger sedan type of cars you could look no further that choosing a leading make such as Michelin or Bridgestone winters , they are all excellent products.As the article says there was 6000 road accidents here in the UK,due to snow and ice, according to the Department of Transport (DFT)
