A garage in Hemel Hempstead is offering free vehicle and tyre checks to coincide with the easing of lockdown restrictions.

Under Step 2 of the Prime Minister's roadmap out of lockdown pubs, shops, gyms and hairdressers have all reopened and in response to the good news, First Stop Ellis Autos, in Bourne End Mills Industrial Estate, has promised to give all visiting cars a complimentary inspection.

The decision to offer the ‘post lockdown checks’ was made in response to so many cars being stationary for long periods before more businesses were able to reopen.

Owner George Ellis said: “With more people travelling to and from work in cars that have been parked up for so long, we wanted to support motorists in this way to provide peace of mind and add a layer of safety at this time.”

All drivers need to do is book an appointment beforehand and let First Stop’s technicians get to work for 10 minutes, with a full breakdown of findings given thereafter.

George added: “We would like to think that we’ll report a clean bill of health on all cars we see and if this is the case, then we’ll all be happy.

"But on occasions, there might be one or two mechanical issues that we can identify due to a vehicle being parked up for so long. If so, we can advise on the issues right away and offer a solution thereafter.”

First Stop is one of the most progressive automotive networks and is aiming grow to 220 centres nationwide by 2024.
