Any car that is more than three years old has to undergo an MOT to make sure it is still roadworthy. This is a yearly test where your local garage will examine your vehicle in considerable detail. If there are problems, they will normally advise repairs to get you back on the road as quickly as possible.

Here we take a closer look at what this involves and how you can prep your car for the big MOT day.

Most people know that they need to get an MOT done on their car every year but many don’t decide to have a full service at the same time. This is generally a false economy as it means your vehicle is not properly maintained over time and that could cost you more money in the long-term.

At Queens Park Garage in Bournemouth, we can combine your annual MOT with a full service at a competitive price. In this article, we look at the importance of regular servicing and why it is recommended.

We often get new customers at Queens Park Garage in Bournemouth who have not been totally satisfied with their previous garage. While there are plenty of good service, MOT and repair businesses out there, unfortunately, there are also some that are less reliable.

Most people don’t really know the ins and outs of their own car and rely on a good garage to deliver the support they are looking for. Scams include saying certain work needs to be done when it doesn’t or even causing damage so that a part has to be replaced.

We take this kind of problem very seriously at Queens Park Garage which is why we work extra hard to maintain standards across the board for all our customers. Here are our top tips for avoiding the bad mechanics and finding a garage that really does have your best interest at heart.

We are now in a new year and a new decade! So we thought we’d look at some great ways to save money if you own a car in 2020. Here are our Bournemouth team’s top tips:

If you see a hazard ahead of you and need to brake suddenly, it can be quite difficult to gauge the distance, particularly in certain weather conditions. There are a number of different factors that affect how long it takes to stop after you brake. Understanding these better should help you drive more safely.

We asked our team at Queens Park Garage in Bournemouth to come up with their top considerations:

Running a car is an expensive business. If you’ve ever thought that skimping on breakdown cover is the right decision, you’re not alone. It can be the first thing that goes when a car owner decides to economise.

Thousands of people who are not covered, break down on the roadside each year and then have to fork out the cost and trouble of getting their car to the garage for repairs which can be an expensive business.
