Coventry, West Midlands (PRWEB UK) 1 June 2014
With the summer holidays soon approaching, the Good Garage Scheme is encouraging motorists to get their cars professionally checked to ensure they are safe, reliable and comfortable as the weather improves. Good Garage Scheme workshops across the UK are offering a Holiday Check to offer drivers’ peace of mind before the summer getaway.
Towing a caravan or having a boot full of luggage demands that a car is in the best possible condition to prevent a delayed start or an abrupt end to summer motoring. The 21-point Holiday Check provides an expert assessment of a vehicle’s condition, examining essential areas including the condition and level of the coolant and engine oil, as well as the brakes, tyres, wiper blades, windscreen and lights.
The Good Garage Scheme also recommends that motorists have their air conditioning systems checked. Harmful bacteria and mould may have built up in the ducts of ventilation systems that have been switched off during the recent damp conditions, posing a health risk to drivers and passengers by circulating unpleasant bugs into the car.
Dave Norton, the Good Garage Scheme’s Technical Manager, comments:
“We all look forward to the warmer weather and getting away for a well-deserved break, but finding a problem with the car on the morning of your holiday can ruin the getaway. Booking a Holiday Check with a Good Garage Scheme member will put motorists’ minds at ease and ensure their vehicles are fully prepared for the holiday season.”
