We're here to keep you safe when driving
A Vehicle Health Check is a comprehensive visual inspection to monitor the overall condition of your car. We carry this out completely free of charge for you.
In addition to all the essentials under the bonnet, our expert technician will use our workshop ramp to thoroughly inspect the underneath condition of all major components including the suspension and exhaust.
We’ll get close up to report the condition of your tyres and brakes and you’ll receive a comprehensive report and video.
What happens during a Vehicle Health Check
One of our qualified technicians will inspect your vehicle's key components and make a note of their health using a simple traffic light system.
The traffic light system consists of Green, Amber and Red. We've highlighted what each light means in the illustration below.
If a component has been given an Amber of Red light, our technician will make a note explaining why they've selected that light. They'll also recommend any work that needs doing sooner as opposed to later, or advise you if the issue isn't safety critical.
The component is in good working order and doesn't require any attention.
The component is showing signs of wear, but isn't dangerous at this stage. We'd recommend changing the worn part in the near future.
The component is worn and is dangerous to yourself and other road users. We'd recommend repairing or replacing the appropriate part before using the public road again.
What does a Vehicle Health Check include?
Alongside the traffic light system our technicians use during a vehicle health check, they'll also create a video that's sent straight to your chosen email address or phone number.
This is done so you have complete transparency when deciding on whether or not you should have recommended work carried out.
Our technicians will check various parts of your car, which includes these key components:
