Having the right skills and investing in the right tools for the job

Last updated 01/06/2020

We have completed the roll out to our network of the latest generation diagnostic tools from Snap-On Tools. Training to increase the skills of our qualified mechanics in the use of these will be rolled out nationally early in 2015.

The first module of this training focuses on guided scan-tool diagnostics. This will be followed by future service fundamentals and modern drivetrain service and repair. Investing in efficient, well trained teams is a key pillar within our business. Through quality training and quality workmanship we aim to raise the bar when it comes to fixing cars the right way, and keep our customers on the road for longer.
