- Make sure you have enough fuel
- Check the oil
- Check your lights
- Check your coolant level
- Check your windscreen wash and refill if necessary
- Make sure your windscreen is clean and clear
- Check your tyres
If you are in doubt about how to check any of the above, or if something seems worryingly low, simply contact your local Good Garage Scheme member garage and ask if they could check it for you.
As well as making all of the necessary checks, don't forget to download the free Good Garage Scheme app before you set off. If you have any motoring worries while you are travelling or visiting family and friends away from home, you can locate a reliable garage using the app no matter where you are.
Over 13,500 motorists have already downloaded the app and The Sunday Times listed it as one of the Top 500 Apps in their App List two years in a row.
Here are some of the comments received from those who have already downloaded the App:
"Can't believe it's free!"
"A genuinely useful app, simple to use and the kind of app that gets you out of a hole when you need it."
"It’s a great application I found especially when you are on the move and you don’t know where you can get your car fixed. It’s so easy to use. I don’t remember if I have found something as useful as this recently."
‘This is a very useful App especially when you’re on the road a lot, off on holiday around the UK or just on the move’
