We're here to keep you safe when driving
A Vehicle Health Check (VHC) is a free way of monitoring the overall condition of your car. The reason it's free is because our technicians aren't changing any parts or completing any additional services. Simply put, they're just giving your car a once-over.
We appreciate that a health check may seem pointless if your car is given a service and MOT every year. But they make a lot of sense during the winter months when cars traditionally take a beating from poor weather, salty roads and slippery conditions.
In essence, a health check is an effective way of making sure your car is safe to use all-year-round, and not just when the annual service needs completing.
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.
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:
- Fluid levels
