With the school holiday upon us again it’s a good idea to get organised now, particularly if your holiday plans include a road trip. Now is the perfect time to schedule a car service.

Having your car serviced will ensure that your vehicle is in good working condition – important for both day trips and longer jaunts. A car service won’t only include replacement of oil and oil filters but will contain safety checks, battery testing and tyre testing, all designed to make sure you not only get to your destination and home again, but do so safely.

When the team at Auto Super Shoppe Mt Wellington complete your pre-school holiday car service they will also:

  • Check your brakes
  • Check for any fuel leaks
  • Check the seatbelts
  • Check all lights and indicators

But the team also have a few school holiday road tips you can do yourself to ensure a pleasant and stress-free trip:

  • Fix your headrest to avoid neck pain on longer trips
  • Plan stops along the way to refresh
  • Pack activities to keep the kids amused
  • Pack a spare key
  • Carry an emergency kit – torch, wiper fluid, jack, spare tyre, tyre iron, jumper cables, oil, water and blankets.

Your newly serviced car will reduce the risk of roadside breakdown and the need to wait for assistance with the kids in the car but with your emergency kit in the boot you’ll be ready for anything.
Before you set off for the school holidays book in for a car service at Auto Super Shoppe Mt Wellington. It will be one less thing you have to worry about. Keeping the kids entertained during the trip – we’ll have to leave that one up to you! Contact us today for a car servicing booking.
