Shaun moved to Queens Park Garage in 2019, from Christchurch Tyres where he had worked for a number of years. He specialises in Wheel Alignment, something that Queens Park Garage are passionate about and have invested in heavily by purchasing the best equipment in the industry.

We asked Shaun a few questions about his role at Queens Park Garage and his expert tips on wheel alignment and why it is important.

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.

Not everyone can afford a brand new BMW or the latest SUV off the production line. Most of us, in fact, own older cars, models that are at least four or five years old.

The older your car gets the more key a little preventative maintenance becomes. A few simple tips can not only improve the durability of your car, but it can also save you a lot of money in the long term with potential repairs.

Here’s our quick guide:

When it comes to car maintenance, most of us immediately think of areas like the engine, suspension and tyres. We’re more likely to spot a grumbling noise under the bonnet or some loose steering than we are to notice how well lit the road is ahead of us.

Rarely do we think about our headlights unless a bulb goes and we have to replace it. This is a pretty vital part of the working of your car and may actually affect visibility when you are driving at night if there is damage, the headlights are dirty or if your headlight covers are cloudy and in need of refurbishment.

Relax whilst we work on your car

You can leave your car with us or wait in our comfortable reception with free wi-fi, free refreshments as well as viewing panel and CCTV so you can watch us while we work on your car.
