LKQ Euro Car Parts: Focus on Summer

LKQ Euro Car Parts has outlined the five key areas of vehicle health that garages should be focusing on this Summer:.

1. Air con
2. Fluid levels and quality
3. Wipers
4. Battery testing
5. Tyres

Colin Cottrell, marketing director at LKQ Euro Car Parts, said: “Many people are getting back on the road for the first time in a long time, and they’ve got long distances planned – with staycations on the cards this Summer and family and friends to reconnect with.

“Offering free vehicle health checks helps drivers make sure their vehicles are safe, comfortable and performing at their best – and provides potential revenue to garages when any urgent repairs or maintenance requirements are identified along the way.

“A vehicle health check only takes around 15-20 minutes to complete, so can easily be added to jobs that are already booked in. We’ve created a handy business toolkit to help garages promote vehicle health checks in the waiting room, as well as online and on social media, to encourage more inbound enquiries.”

The toolkit also includes a checklist for technicians to use when carrying out a health check, and can be downloaded for free from the Garage Support section of the LKQ Euro Car Parts Omnihub: https://omnipart.eurocarparts.com/omnihub
