TIPS TO KEEP YOUR CAR COST DOWN BY GEM UK GARAGE
Here are some simple tips from Gem-Uk Garage to help keep the costs down:
Service your car regularly
An MOT test is NOT the same as having your vehicle serviced and does NOT check its general mechanical condition.The best way to avoid costly repair bills at MOT test time is to keep your vehicle in tip-top condition with regular checks and servicing.
Look for GEM-UK offers discounts on servicing when MOTs are booked at the same time.
Check the lights
One in five vehicles fail MOTs due to an inoperative light bulb. Walk around to check your car's indicators and headlights, front and back. Ask for help from a friend or neighbour with checking your reversing light.
Be an early bird
Have an MOT test in the month before the current certificate ends. The new certificate will expire exactly a year from the existing one's end date (the earliest date you can do this is printed on your test certificate) so that you benefit. If you have the MOT test more than a month before the MOT's due date, it will expire exactly a year later, meaning you lose out.
