Do Insurance Companies Cover The Cost

Insurance policies do not usually cover dents unless they are cause by another party in the case of an accident but there are policies that can be taken out to cover minor maintenance works on your cars body.

These kind of polices are on top of your normal policy but can be worth it if you use your car regularly on long journeys, such as for work. Always investigate any insurance policy and ensure it cover what you need it too.

When you buy a new car, what do you look for? Is it the look or whether the body needs work? Many look for the golden ‘Full-Service history’. Now if that’s what your looking for, would you make sure that’s what you do with your old car? Many don’t get their car serviced on a regular basis and it can have an effect from everything from you breaking down to the value of your car. So, here is why you need to get your car serviced.

Keep Your Engine Healthy

Engines need to be maintained; they are designed to need it. Just having simple things such as an oil and filter change mean that the chance of major issues accruing is greatly reduced. An engine in good general health will last longer too. In that end that’s all we want, a car that lasts. Your car, aside from the purchase of a property, can be the large expense. So, why wouldn’t you look after it?

Oil Change

As we have said above, part of your service will be an oil and filter change. This is a simple but key part of your service. If the oil or filter is dirty it can move to other parts of the vehicle and cause major issues. Yes, oil changes can be done by anyone but if you do it yourself, have you checked all the component parts, or do you know what they are? It is always best to leave it to the professionals and get you service carried out by a trained mechanic, who can check everything involved in your service.

Why Your Tyres Need To Be Checked

Within your cars service, your tyres will be checked. Your tyres general condition and tread depth will be checked. This is to ensure they are safe and fit for purpose. The legal depth is 1.6mm but get your tyres changed at 3mm to ensure they always give you the best performance and safety.

Help Keep Your Cars Value

As we said above in the opening paragraph, having your car serviced is great for keeping your cars value. A full-service history is not only a great bargaining tool, but it shows that the vehicle is safe to be on the road. In cases where your car is written off due to accident, without a full-service history, the insurance company may offer you less for its value.

What Is Included In A Car Respray

We start with cutting with an abrasive compound to remove the thin layers of paint and then use specialist cutting tools in different strengths to get the best base to start the painting process. We then sand to remove the top layer of paint and apply a primer which makes a great sealed surface to protect the body and help give the best finish for the paint to adhere to. Then of course we apply the paint you have chosen, for the perfect finish.

Leave It To The Professionals

Car Respraying is technical and can cause safety issues for anyone not professionally trained. We want our customer to stay safe, car respraying deals with dangerous chemicals and technical equipment. So, for this reason we ask you to leave it to the professionals and get the best finish & garage service from the outset.

The wheels on your car are perhaps one of the most important parts of the vehicle, especially where your road safety is concerned. So, conducting regular wheel and tyre checks is crucial to maintaining your car and ensuring everyone inside is in a safe and legal vehicle.

Why Is Tyre Safety So Important?

Your wheels, or tyres, are critical in several important car functions. This includes: the brakes, the suspension, the surface grip and the speed. Good tyres (correct pressure, correct alignment and correct tread-depth) will allow your car to perform properly, reach speeds safely, brake safely and can even help your car be more fuel efficient.

Tyre Checks In Ponypool

It is recommended you check your tyres at least once a month, but perhaps more during the good old British bad weather. It is also wise to check your tyres before going on any long journeys – as you will want your car to be in peak performance if you plan on driving for more than 2-3 hours in a row.

MOTs In Ponypool

During the MOT test, your wheels and tyres will be checked – but do not just rely on your MOT. Checking your tyres each month could help prevent accidents and could stop any nasty surprises such as a flat tyre. A visual inspection is good, but you should also try and get a feel for how your wheels feels when they are in good health, so that you can identify if something feels wrong.

If you are not confident checking your tyres, then trust a professional to do it. It is always better to be safe, then sorry, especially where car safety is involved.

There are several tyres checks you can do at home – and we will explain them here. These are small, quick checks you can be doing regularly to ensure your car is safe.

Checking Depth Of Tyre Tread

You will often be able to tell if your car’s tread-depth is too low just by looking, as the tracks and dents in the wheel will seem too shallow or maybe even ‘balding’. If your wheel looks smooth and flat – this is a sure sign they need replacing.

Tyre Fitters Pontypool

If you think your wheels might be getting old and near the legal tread-depth limit (but you are not completely sure) then you can do the 20p test. When you insert a 20p coin into the tracks of your tyres and if the ‘border’ of the 20p coin is still visible, then your car needs new tyres. You will want to test each tyre individually, as they can wear-out at different rates.

How To Check Tyre Pressures?

The next thing you will want to check is the pressure of your tyres. Tyre pressure can affect how your vehicle handles and maintaining the right wheel pressure is critical for braking and ensuring you have maximum grip or wheel torque on the road. You will need to do each tyre individually, because the pressure could be less in the back two, or the front two (for example). When checking what inflation pressure to aim for, there should be a guide in your car’s handbook (if you want to be precise) but the main thing to look for at home is a firm wheel. What you do not want are soft tyres that feel deflated.

If you can visit a petrol station – you will be able to check your official pressure using the self-service air pressure pumps available. This is highly recommended as it will give you a much more accurate reading.

How To Check For Punctures?

You will probably know if your tyre has a puncture because it can make handling the car very difficult. Some signs you have a puncture are often felt whilst driving:

If car is pulling in a certain direction
The car wheels feel wobbly
If car is having difficulty steering

If you are unsure though, you can conduct a visual puncture check yourself. To do this you will want to inspect the wheels for any rips or tears, or any items lodged or stuck in the ridges.

Are Illegal Tyres Dangerous?

Yes, there is a reason why cars have a minimum allowance for things like tread-depth. If your cars wheels are not safe, or do not pass their MOT, you will not be allowed to drive your car until they are replaced or fixed.

Last year, over 340,000 tyre tread depths were surveyed across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales and it was discovered that more than a quarter of people were driving with illegal tyres. This is dangerous not only for you (the driver) but for people and cars around you too. It is totally your responsibility to ensure your car is safe, so carrying out regular checks is crucial.
