COVID-19 Lockdown: How to Keep your Motor Roadworthy

Car Body Repairs High WycombeAt Auto Medics, we are available to collect and return your vehicle if your motor requires essential body work repairs. This ensures you stay safe and follow the Governments recommendations during the COVID-19 lockdown while ensuring the upkeep of your motor.

Lockdown Car Body Repairs High Wycombe

If you are uncertain of the rules surrounding using your car during this period or worried about how to keep your motor roadworthy, Auto Medics are here to clarify.

You should only drive your car for the reasons specified by the Government, these instances are limited to:

  • Unavoidable travel to and from your workplace
  • Shopping for essentials
  • Medical purposes

COVID-19 Lockdown

This means that our cars could be left unused for an indefinite period of time, which can cause problems when it comes to needing to drive again. In order to keep your car roadworthy for essential trips the following tips should help you through lockdown:

  • Maintain your car battery:
    • Start it up once a week and let it run for approximately 15 minutes
    • This will help increase the battery’s charge as well as circulate oil and fuel around the engine.
    • Avoid turning your car on and off quickly as this can cause issues for the starter motor.
    • Never leave your car running unattended.
  • Maintain the brakes of your car
    • Left for a long period brake discs can start to corrode eventually leading to them seizing up and requiring the attention of a mechanic.
    • To avoid this roll your car back and forth a few metres now and again.
    • This will also help prevent your wheels developing flat spots and your hand brake from sticking.

If your car MOT is due during lockdown, you should also be aware that from 30 March 2020 a 6 month extension period has been granted.

When you next need to drive your car, if it’s been a while since you last did so be sure to check the following to ensure your car is safe and roadworthy:

  • Fluid levels including oil, engine coolant, brake fluid and screen wash.
  • Gently try your brakes when setting off
  • Check lights are all working
  • Check tyres have required tread and are appropriately inflated.

First Class Diamond Cutting Service High Wycombe

diamond cutting service high wycombeAuto Medics in High Wycombe offer a diamond cutting service. Diamond cutting is a very skilled service using a specialist lathe. Many cars these days come with diamond cut alloys. You can identify diamond cut wheels by the very fine lines upon close inspection and the shiny appearance.

Diamond Cut Alloy Refurbishment High Wycombe

There aren’t many body shops in High Wycombe who can boast the technical skills or specialist equipment we have when it comes to diamond cut alloy wheel refurbishment, nor do they have the exceptional reviews and customer service we offer. Using our specialist diamond tipped lathe we can create a high quality shiny finish (similar to that of the back of a CD), with a fast turnaround time too.

Diamond cutting requires a thin layer of alloy to be removed from the wheel using the lathe. This can only be carried out a couple of times as eventually too much of the alloy would be removed. Diamond cut wheels can be susceptible corrosion, at Auto Medics we always ensure these are lacquered to prevent corrosion for as long as possible.

Check out our Facebook page for example of our first class diamond cutting service in High Wycombe.

Every new season brings new car maintenance issues to consider; following the long, cold winter it’s time to address the issues that wintry weather can cause your motor.

Winter causes your car to work harder, utilising more screen wash and other engine fluids than any other season typically. Now spring is here take time to check your fluid levels and top up where required.

Alloy Wheels: Winter Survival Guide

Just as we were expecting spring, it looks as though winter will raise it’s cold and problematic head again. Let’s disregard the chaos it inevitably brings to the roads, schools and airports in this country and focus on how brutal it can be on our motors, specifically, alloy wheels.

The problem with snow and ice is that it creates the need for the gritters to come out and salt the roads, which from the perspective of safety is great, but galvanic corrosion and the long lasting damage to alloys is not so desirable.

You can take steps to protect your alloy wheels from the salty roads by cleaning your alloys thoroughly and using a wheel sealant. Following this it’s advisable on a weekly basis to clean your alloy wheels with a non-aggressive cleaner, removing all trace of road salt or brake dust. Leaving remnants of this kind can accelerate the process of corrosion in the winter months.

Of course, the effects of the elements take their toll you can always get help from us, here at Auto Medics. We specialise in alloy wheel refurb in High Wycombe restoring alloy wheels to the highest possible standard. We are also one of the only local body shops to be experts in diamond cut alloys.

The Auto Medics team recognise the pride you take in the upkeep of your vehicle and how invested you are in ensuring you take good care of it. That’s why we keep our prices competitive and the quality of our work first class.
