    AS RESTRICTIONS ARE BEING LIFTED – VEHICLE CHECKS ARE IMPORTANT

    Hanushka Karnani - Monday, April 19, 2021

    Whilst we have “stayed at home” and followed Government guidelines, restrictions are gradually being lifted in our local areas and we are now beginning to think about going to places to see family and friends. You probably haven’t thought much about your car or motorbike during these last few months whilst it has been stood still in your garage or parked on the street/driveway but this can be damaging to vehicles.

    Things like flat batteries, low tyre pressures and threads, fuel going stale, brakes and wipers drying up when not used for such long periods are all be possible issues drivers could experience when they do get behind the wheel in coming weeks. 

    So now is the time to carry out a series of maintenance vehicle checks before taking to the roads.

    TOP checks to carry out on your motor:

    1. Check your tyres for pressures and threads. If you think they need replacing, make sure to arrange new tyres asap. Also, if pressure looks even a little low make sure to get pressure topped up at your nearest garage.

    2. Check oil and fluid levels before beginning any journey.

    3. Check lights are fully working and over lockdown nothing has blown. Be sure to replace any bulbs immediately.

    4. Carry out a test of your brakes to make sure they are not jamming or failing.

    5. Check seatbelts to make sure they are working correctly. Remember to check all seatbelts and not just the front seats.

    6. Consider a car service. It might also be advisable to have a service booked as things may need replacing due to long periods of no driving.
