Today, 29 June, the Department for Transport announced that the 6-month MOT exemption for cars, vans and motorcycles introduced during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, will end on 1st August 2020.

Why is the MOT exemption ending?

As non-essential services start to re-open in line with government guidance, and more vehicles are back on the roads, having an up-to-date MOT will help to keep vehicles safe to drive.

Air Conditioning Sanitisation

We are offering a specialist service of Air Conditioning Sanitisation.  This is an ultrasonic cleaning solution, which when added to a unit, heats up and vaporises (the cleaning solution) inside of the vehicle circulating through all the pipes, vents and cabin of the car. This forms a protective film on the evaporator with long-lasting effect.  This sanitisation can be done separately, or as part of an air conditioning service.

Air Conditioning Annual Service (i.e. system working, not requiring gassing) including sanitisation £75.00 (+VAT)

Air Conditioning Sanitisation £25.00 (+VAT)

Whether you need to use your car for an essential journey, or want to keep it in a good condition whilst staying at home, we have everything you need to ensure your vehicle is safe and ready to use when you need it most.
