    Pre-Holiday Vehicle Checks

    Pre-Holiday Check Report

    The last thing you want is for your car to give you trouble or have safety issues when you are on holiday. Often when you go on holiday you drive further and face different road conditions than normal.

    Also with modern cars only needing a Warrant of Fitness (WoF) once per year (or less), there is even more need to check safety items like tyres, fluid levels and the health of your engine and electronic controlled systems every 6 months.

    At Grimmer Motors our highly skilled, experienced and qualified mechanics can quickly and easily use the latest state of the art diagnostic technology to check and test your car before your holiday adventure.

    End of Warranty Vehicle Checks

    End of Warranty Report

    New car warranties are typically 5 years long. When your vehicle is coming close to the end of its warranty period (say 3 months) it is always a good idea to get an independent (not the franchise dealer who warranties your vehicle) “end of warranty check”.

    The purpose of this “end of warranty check” is to look for any mechanical, electrical or electronic issues that are pending, but not yet bad enough to turn on a warning light on the dash, or have obvious symptoms. Finding these issues while your vehicle is still under warranty can save you a lot of money, as you will be responsible for the repairs outside of the warranty period!

    Our latest, state of the art diagnostic technology can help to find any pending problems while still in warranty.

    End of Lease Vehicle Checks

    End of Lease Report

    If you decide to purchase your lease vehicle from the lease company, then you will become responsible for any repair costs outside of the lease agreement period.

    Therefore it is always very advisable to get a full “end of lease check” of your vehicle in the last few months of the lease before you purchase it.

    Our highly experienced, trained and trusted mechanics use the latest diagnostic technologies in order to thoroughly test your vehicle, giving you confidence that you have all the information available about your lease vehicle before purchase.

    Pre-Sales Vehicle Checks

    Pre Sales Report

    At Grimmer Motors we keep a complete service and diagnostic history of your vehicle over time in our cloud-based web portal. This means that when you have your car worked on at Grimmer Motors on a regular basis you build up a significant history of how well and often your car is serviced along with the full electronic diagnostic history.

    This “pre-sales vehicle check” can be very useful to you as the seller of a vehicle to be able to show the buyer that your vehicle has been regularly serviced and it has been constantly healthy (with repairs done as required) and is currently healthy at the time of sale.

    This could make the sale of your vehicle faster and hassle free, plus it could help command a premium price for your vehicle.
