Tyres -We will check the overall condition of your tyres tread depth and pressure and will check the tyre for cracks and bulges.

  • Coolant / Anti-freeze- We will check the strength and levels, including the hoses and top with antifreeze if necessary.
  • Lights- We make sure that all your lights, including headlights, fog lights and indicators, are in full working order, with no cracked lenses or blown bulbs.
