Keep your air con working all year round
Air conditioning systems naturally lose about 15% of the system gas over a year, and if left unchecked, this can seriously affect the efficiency of the air con system. We always recommend that you continue to use the air con over the winter (at least once or twice per week) as this will help to prevent the system from ceasing. If the air con system starts to lose charge, over a period of time this will cause the system to work harder, and will use more fuel to attain the same level of performance. If it is not working at all, we recommend that repair is undertaken as soon as possible to avoid absorption of moisture and damage to the compressor and other parts of the system. Servicing of air conditioning and anti-bacterial treatments are recommended every 2-3 years.
Air Conditioning services include re-gassing, servicing, fault-finding, leak detection, and system cleaning.

Worn-out Suspension Parts
If you have a problem with your car suspension, it may be causing excessive bouncing or swaying movements, it may not sit level and it may not handle well on the road. Over time, suspension springs and shock absorbers wear out. This is generally a gradual decline so you may not notice it until it is close to breaking or does break. Repairing your suspension can give your car a new lease of life. It will feel more stable during sudden turns and will give a much smoother ride. Suspension repairs include leaking or weak shock absorbers, broken or weak coil springs, noisy or failed suspension bushes, worn or knocking ball joints or gator damage.
