Many of us are reliant on our cars, and finding a trustworthy local mechanic to maintain it for us is a big bonus. While we often just go with the cheapest price, knowing a mechanic has your best interests at heart can go a long way. Many people with new cars entrust their servicing and maintenance to the main dealer while the car is still under warranty, but as long as a third party mechanic uses the manufacturers recommended parts there is no reason to pay main dealer prices if you’re happy with a local mechanic.
Staying on top of regular servicing can reduce the likelihood of needing an unexpected repair. Dealing with problems as they arise can also help you avoid big bills at a mechanics, as a problem can get worse and affect other components if left to deteriorate.
Some people like to get a quote in writing before letting a mechanic undertake any work, especially if it’s a new garage they haven’t used before. When shopping around for a mechanic the cheapest isn’t always the best. Ask about the parts they use and make sure they’re not using any sub-standard or reconditioned car parts without your knowledge.
Once you’ve used My Business Finder to search for a local garage you should look at online reviews to see what other people think of their service. This will show up any praise or problems from other customers, and will help you to build a clearer picture about the level of service you should expect.
Purchasing a car is the second biggest purchase many of us make, after our home. With all the big car manufacturers selling their cars in Ireland, we have no shortage of options. While plenty of people opt to buy new cars, modern day reliability and better dealer service makes a quality used vehicle an attractive proposition for many people.
There are also far more options on how you finance a vehicle purchase. While traditional HP (Hire Purchase) is very popular, opting for a variation of a lease deal where you pay smaller monthly payments, then have the option of paying a balloon payment or returning the car at the end, is also growing in popularity.
Purchasing a new car can be overwhelming for some people, and while plenty of people know exactly what they want, some people can get flustered and swayed by salesmen. It’s always a good idea to remain calm, and if you’re unsure give yourself time to think it through, before making any big decision.
Electric cars are becoming more advanced every year. A better battery range and more charging options have seen them growing in popularity, with some governments even setting a date for when only electric vehicles will be allowed to be sold. Manufacturers like BMW, Nissan, Mercedes, Ford, and many other car manufacturers already have an electric vehicle on the market or in development.
CVRT (Commercial Vehicle Roadworthy Test) testing is a regular requirement for some commercial vehicles, it ensures they stay roadworthy and our roads stay safe. Some garages offer a pre-test service to ensure everything is up to standard before your vehicle has the test, but if your vehicle does fail a CVRT you will have 21 days or 4,000km to get the repairs carried out and a retest done.
An accredited tester must carry out CVRT testing in Ireland. All accredited CVR testers are monitored by the RSA (Road Safety Authority). For businesses that rely on their commercial fleet to keep their business on the road, any downtime for a vehicle can be costly. There are lots of simple things you can do prior to the test to help it run smoothly.
Ensure the seating area is free from any personal belonging, and that the cargo area is empty. Registration plates should be clean and all your lights should be in working order. Engine fluids, (oil, water, washer fluid) should all be topped up.
Whoever takes the vehicle for its test must have appropriate ID on them, which is usually their driving license or passport, failure to produce your ID means no certificate will be issued. Once you’ve passed the test your certificate is valid for 12 months. Even when you have your CVRT test certificate, it’s still recommended drivers check some items regularly, such as lights and tires, to ensure the vehicle stays roadworthy. If a driver notices anything wrong they should address it immediately to avoid it becoming a bigger more costly problem further down the line.
