Whatever your essential journey, make it SAFE.

Whatever your essential journey, make it SAFE.

Now that many children are able to return to school as lockdown restrictions are gradually eased, you may need to swap your essential home-schooling for essential car journeys again. While it’s still only sensible to head out when you need to, getting back in the driver’s seat after your vehicle has been out of regular use could mean that you experience problems with some of the main safety features.

With more and more traffic on the roads, here at #TeamArbury we want everyone to be fully prepared for more regular trips out again without any unforeseen surprises. Whatever your essential journey, make it SAFE, and keep on top of your car health today by carrying out these four basic pre-drive checks:

Service or health check if needed

Air in tyres

Fill up screenwash

Examine lights and tyre tread

These basic checks can help you confidently get back on the road, safely, smoothly and legally. Doing a visual check of items such as tyres, screenwash and lights could also help avoid some of the common faults found during an MOT test.

If you’re in any doubt about carrying out these checks yourself, or feel you don’t have the time to do so, we highly recommend that you book in at your local Arbury dealership for a health check or early service – after all, having a professional technician check over your vehicle will mean that you know for certain that it’s safe, secure and fully roadworthy. Our workshops are likely to be quieter in April and May, so plan ahead and secure the appointment of your choice.

Did you have an MOT exemption last year? If so, you also might consider getting an early MOT test if you wish to go back to your original MOT date.

#TeamArbury are here to support you in adapting to life after lockdown, so let’s work together to make this challenging time easier for everyone – wherever and whenever you need to drive, let’s make it as SAFE as possible.

Financial Disclosure

Cathedral Motor Company Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Cathedral Motor Company Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
