Get Your Vehicle Ready For Winter

When the colder months are approaching, that's the ideal time to prepare your vehicle for Winter.



Things you can do when making trips in cold conditions:

  • Make sure you carry some thick blankets.

  • Carry a flask with a hot drink to stay warm.

  • Carry a red triangle to warn drivers if you break down.

  • Keep a torch in your vehicle.

  • Check that your spare tyre is road-worthy and that the pressure is correct.

  • Make sure your car jack and tools are in working order.

Making sure your car is ready for the Winter will save you the possible pain of waking up to a flat battery when you’re late for work!


Here are some of the things you need to be thinking about:

  • Battery condition (batteries suffer through the cold weather)

  • Anti-freeze strength

  • Screen wash strength

  • Tyre tread depth and condition

  • Lamp condition

  • Heating system

  • Screen de-misting function

If you don’t have the time to do this yourself, we offer a vehicle Winter Check which includes ALL of the above, PLUS a comprehensive list of additional checks, giving you peace of mind that your vehicle is ready for the Winter.


For just £70, our Winter Check includes call-out (within a 10 mile radius of Westbury, Wiltshire), parts, labour and a vehicle check sheet.
