With the possibility of Lockdown easing is your vehicle ready for the road?

Spring is in the air and warmer weather on the way. Holiday companies report record sales as the PM, Boris Johnson announces the government’s roadmap to cautiously ease lockdown restrictions in England. Staycations will boost the tourist industry and getting out and about and back on the road is something many of us long for.

There’s much to look forward to and at A1 Clutches we want to make sure that your vehicle is ready for the road. We are The Midlands number one clutch and gearbox installers and offer a free no obligation check on your clutch, while you wait, by one of our highly trained technicians.

As an essential business, we remain open during Lockdown to keep you mobile but don’t forget that there are a few essential checks that you can always carry out on your vehicle at home. Here are some handy tips:

If your windscreen is chipped, your vehicle might fail an MOT. Search for a mobile windscreen expert to come to your home and conduct a contactless repair.


Spring hasn’t quite arrived and the mornings may still be dark. Make sure you can be seen by cleaning the lights on your vehicle and replacing any bulbs.

Clean under your car

Winter leaves a build-up of salt and grime on the undercarriage of your car. Grab your garden hose and clean away all the potentially corrosive wintery residue.


Tyre pressure unit

The correct tyre pressures mean your vehicle grips the road and you can corner and brake safely. A 12V mini compressor or tyre inflator is an investment rather than a cost, because it can save time and money while keeping you safe.


Your emergency recovery provider will replace your vehicle’s battery at home and test the batteries health. They will also dispose of the old battery safely in an environment friendly way.

Valet your vehicle

Give your vehicle a top to toe home valet which will last longer now that the winter salt has gone from the roads. Get the whole family to spend an energising morning making sure that your wheels have the WOW factor when you get back on the road.

However you are spend these uncertain days during the pandemic, we hope that you, your family and loved ones are keeping safe and well.

Happy driving from all the team at A1 Clutches.
