How a General Inspection works with My Auto Shop:

Our qualified mechanic will look to complete a thorough inspection of your vehicle using the information you have provided via the My Auto Shop platform. To complete this the mechanic will usually start by plugging into your OBDII port and completing a complete diagnostic scan. This will highlight any error or warning codes your vehicle has and will provide the mechanic with information they. need to fix your problem.

Before completing any repairs the mechanic will complete a quote and look for your approval.

Wheel Alignment

Having your wheels aligned correctly is an important part of keeping your vehicle performing optimally. Properly aligned wheels ensure your car handles properly, and therefore increases the life of your tyres. Ever felt that irritating symptom of your car constantly pulling to one side? That’s the cause of misaligned wheels.

Windscreen Replacement

Even though it’s staring you in the face every time you get into the car, it’s very rare you have a good look at it and appreciate the technology in a windscreen. A windscreen is generally made of 2 sheets of glass laminated together with a thin piece of plastic between them. In modern cars, the windscreen may hold even more functionality than just wind and sun protection. Display functionality, sensors and cameras are being built into windscreens to aid driving.
