Spring Check

Our cars and vans can go through difficult winters!


They have to cope with extremely wet and windy conditions, salted roads and never ending pot holes. This can all add stress to vehicle components.


My Spring Check inspection will offer you peace of mind. I check your vehicle and give you an honest opinion on its condition.


i check tyres, brakes, lights, engine oil, coolant, exhaust, air conditioning and heater. We also road test your vehicle. 

I advise on any work may need to be carried out. I never carry out work that you haven't agreed to.


If you want peace of mind, or time to save for any repairs, phone text or email to book a Spring Check inspection.
