Stay Safe in the Snow

Winter has officially arrived, with the first flurries of snow already wreaking havoc on travel and commuters are being warned of further downpours to follow. At Auto Medics, we’re fully aware of the accidents, bumps and scuffs that have been sustained to your motors across the High Wycombe area as the temperatures have plummeted and ice and snow have led to commuting chaos.

With more snow to come it’s safest to avoid driving where at all possible but if you need to make a trip ensure your motor has plenty of fuel in case you get stuck in the snow. Be sure to drive slowly and increase the distance between you and the car in front and avoid stopping sharply. Keep an eye on the weather forecast and try to avoid driving when the snow is due to hit.

Ensure Your Car Lasts Longer

Everyone wants to drive a nice car but in order to keep it in tip-top condition it’s vital that you take care of your vehicle inside and out. We are all aware of the routine checks, such as oil change, replacing brake pads, belts and hoses, that need to be carried out in order to maintain our motors but there are also some simple ways to ensure your car ages well as you tot up the miles.

  • Avoid exceeding the maximum capacity load for your car. This capacity can be found in your owner’s manual. The greater the weight of your vehicle the harder your car, specifically the brakes and transmission have to work.
  • When you start your car let it warm up in order to give the oil a chance to circulate before you hit the road. Also ensure you check and change your oil and oil filter at the recommended intervals.
  • When your car sustains damage book it into a professional body shop to have it checked over and repaired to avoid long lasting damage.
  • Clean or hire someone to clean the inside and outside of your car thoroughly to ensure its upkeep and resale value when you come to sell your motor.

AutoMedics: Diamond Cutting Wheels in High Wycombe

If you’re looking for the ultimate look for your wheels this new year, we highly recommend checking out diamond cut wheels. Diamond cut wheels are achieved using a specialist lathe to machine the face of the wheel to accomplish a polished two-tone finish. Diamond cutting can sometimes be referred to as diamond turning. We, at Auto Medics in High Wycombe, offer the increasingly popular diamond cutting service.

Manufacturers are increasingly supplying diamond cut wheels on new cars but if you aren’t in the market for a new motor at present, we are one of the few body shops in High Wycombe and surrounding areas that have the capability to help you achieve the desired look our diamond tipped lathe produces.

If you have diamond cut wheels already, we can also offer a first class alloy wheel refurbishment service that will return your wheels to their original pristine condition if the elements have started to take their toll.

For more information about diamond cut wheels or to book in your wheels for our diamond cutting service call us at Auto Medics on 01494 533534 or drop in to our body shop in High Wycombe.

Nicole posted these kind words after we sorted her alloys at the end of last year:

“Just picked up my Audi A4 after having my alloys done. They had been done before I bought the car and it was a massive botch job. I brought them to Auto Medics who could not have been more helpful. They had to be stripped right down and redone. Less than a week later they took the car in for 4 and a half days and I am delighted with the results, they look brand new out of the shop!! Very reasonable price for the 19inch alloys I had also!! Would recommend these guys highly. The man I dealt with (who I presume is the boss) was lovely and very professional !! Even glued my door handle for me. Thanks guys”

Lease Car Repairs – How to Avoid Being Fined

lease car repair high wycombeWhen you hire a lease car it is your responsibility to return your lease car in a good condition as it will undergo an inspection when your contract ends. If there is any damage to your car that is deemed as excessive wear and tear, such as paintwork scuffs or alloy wheel damage, it’s likely you will incur a penalty charge for the damage to be repaired.

Charges by such leasing companies can often be on the expensive side, which is why Auto Medics, car body repair and alloy wheel refurbishment specialists in High Wycombe, are here to tell you that repairing this type of wear and tear can cost you less if you bring your lease car to us at the end of your contract.

Car Body Repair High Wycombe

The BVRLA, that’s the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association, have created guidelines to help you assess what is considered fair wear and tear to a lease vehicle. In summary:

  • The lease car should be returned in a roadworthy condition
  • Lease cars should be serviced as directed by the manufacturers service schedule, with appropriate evidence
  • The lease car should be in a clean condition ready for a thorough inspection

Unacceptable damage is classified as the following:

Windscreen: Holes, chips and cracks, with scratches in the driver’s line of sight

Wheels: Uneven tread wear, scoring or damage to the wheel surface or side walls

Wing Mirrors: Missing, damaged or cracked wing mirrors

Bumpers: Broken paintwork, cracks and dents

Bodywork: Impact damage, stone chips, scratches over 25mm that have exposed bare metal, primer or rusted and multiple dents on a single panel

Decals: Damage caused by the removal of badges and advertising

Interior: Burns, tears, stains or damage caused by fitting equipment

Now that you have the lowdown on what you are likely to incur penalty charges for it’s time to take action if you have sustained any of this damage to your lease car. Simply get in touch with the team at Auto Medics and we will give you a competitive cost that will certainly beat the fine you will incur if you return your damaged car to the leasing company.

Tips to Help you Avoid Minor Damage to your Car

car body repair shop high wycombeAt some point in time most car owners are going to find a scratch or dent on their car. Auto Medics, car body repair shop High Wycombe, are here to offer you a few tips to help you avoid sustaining minor damage to your vehicle.

  • If you have a garage it’s advisable to park in it overnight, rather than park on the road, to avoid damage from other cars or passers-by. Ensure equipment inside your garage is well secured and unlikely to fall and scrape the paintwork of your vehicle.
  • When parking in public car parks choose a quieter area of the car park, where there’s reduced traffic flow to improve your chances of avoiding door dings or scrapes from passers-by.
  • Never park to close to other vehicles; always ensure there is enough room either side of you for drivers and passengers to get in and out of their cars.
  • Check out what the car next to you looks like. If there’s noticeable damage to the car, it might indicate that the driver does not take pride in their vehicle, therefore you might want to consider parking elsewhere.
  • Avoid getting too close to the side of the road when driving down narrow roads to avoid scratching your vehicle on stray branches or overgrown hedges.
  • Scratches can happen when keys, handbags or clothing items such as zips, jewellery, buttons and belts scrape the paintwork of your car, so avoid getting to close when wearing these items.
