What is your favourite car you have had in for work?
“Our most favourite car that we’ve had in has got to be the JBA Falcon. (Pictured) It was used in the TV show Chancer starring Clive Owen. A brilliant little kit car, designed and built by car enthusiasts who love to tinker and take care of their pride and joys. Finished off in classy British Racing Green, it’s a fun car that will put a smile on your face every time you see it.”
Does your company participate in any team activities outside of work? What events do you have planned for 2016?
“For 2016 we are on the lookout for an original Mazda MX5 Eunos, to dip our toe in to the world of motorsport. Being absolute amateurs, we reckon it’ll be the perfect way to kick start our motorsport careers! More than likely we’ll be in the pits at Kirkistown- our local race track.”
What is the most frequently asked question by a customer?
Our most FAQ by a customer is “Can you check my tyre pressure?”
What is your “Top Tip” for any car owner
“Look after your tyres and your tyres will look after you. Many tyre ‘disasters’ can be easily avoided with simple maintenance. Weekly tyre pressure checks, regularly inspecting for cuts or bulges (and of course low tread depth) and have your wheel alignment check once a year and/ or when you replace your tyres, which will save on tyre wear and increase your fuel economy.”
