Halfords is offering free winter car checks at all of its stores throughout the winter. No end date for this offer has been published, but last year it finished in February.
Simply drive to any Halfords or Halfords Autocentre to get a free six-point car check. Halfords says it takes about 15 minutes, and although you don’t actually need to book in advance, you can book online if you want a specific time slot.
Checks via the free offer include:
- Wiper blades
- Oil levels
- Screenwash levels, topped up for free
- Windscreen chip check
The free screenwash top-up can be as much as two litres, which would normally cost about £2ish in itself. There’s no obligation to act on any advice you’re given, or to buy anything.
You can also get your tyres checked…
You can also get a free tyre safety check when you drive to a Halfords Autocentre (find your nearest). The service includes a pressure check and full tyre inspection. Again, there’s no obligation to act on any advice.
You can have both the winter car check and the tyre safety check carried out on the same day. Unlike the winter car check, the tyre check is available at any time of year. There’s no need to book in advance.
