Safely Servicing Your Vehicle

As well as maintaining your vehicle, we must protect the safety of our customers and colleagues. Stringent processes have been put in place to give you complete peace of mind that we are looking after both you and your car.

Before your appointment, we will send you a checklist with your booking confirmation to ensure your car is safe for our colleagues to work on. At your appointment, please abide by our outlined safety procedures and signage. On arrival, we will place your key in a sealed plastic bag once you have checked your car in with us and take your temperature if it is over 37.8 degrees Celsius we will have to ask you to rearrange your appointment.

When your car is ready, one of our team members will call you to let you know and go through any work carried out remotely, documentation will be emailed to you including the invoice. Your vehicle will be fully sanitised and parked in a designated bay to collect.
