Vehicle Health Check in Colchester, Essex

Free Vehicle Health Check in Colchester, Essex

All Trans Autos are your local experts in delivering free vehicle health checks in Colchester, Essex. A regular Vehicle Health Check (VHC) will help to make your life easier and help prolong the life of your vehicle. When your car breaks down, the hassle is not just limited to waiting for the recovery service to arrive. Follow-up repairs are often necessary meaning more time and expense, and if the car cannot be fixed straight away, you’ll need to find alternative transport.

But they can potentially be avoided with a Vehicle Health Check.

The health check is there to check the state of your car and provide you with relevant advice. Customers have peace of mind because no work will be carried out to a vehicle without first gaining authorisation. In light of this, feedback will be provided for each of the items within the selected health check outlining one of three outcomes, a clean bill of health, work required in the near future or failed component with urgent attention strongly recommended. For many customers their vehicles are in good working order with no repairs necessary, providing them with peace of mind.

All Trans Autos Ltd can provide a no-obligation quote for both urgent works and for work required in the near future allowing customers to plan appropriately, with many choosing for All Trans Autos Ltd to carry out the repairs while the vehicle is in their care as this is often the most convenient option.

VHCs are not mandatory, but they are recommended.
