Winter is well and truly here, so many people are getting their winter vehicle checks done in anticipation of the frost, mud and rain that will be a constant on our roads over the next few months. However, for some customers the cost of even a simple winter check could be more than they can afford, which can cause stress and anxiety for people needing their vehicles for work and childcare. Sadly, we know there are people out there who avoid getting essential works done to their vehicles because of the cost, despite how vitally important it is for their safety.
Recently at Donna's MOT and Tyre Centre in March, we began noticing that more and more customers were struggling when it came to paying for work needed on their vehicles. Sometimes it was after an MOT had failed and needed repair work to get the car to pass the MOT; at other times it was due to needing a whole set of new tyres because theirs were below the legal limit. We decided it was time to see how we could help our loyal customers out in these difficult times and so we got in touch with Payment Assist to help us.
