    Her name is Rio…

    We’re committed to ensuring our customers can get back on the road as soon as possible, and to support this, we offer a FREE courtesy car with every service so they can continue to get from A to B.

    As part of this commitment, we are constantly expanding the number of courtesy cars available, and have recently purchased a new, top-of-the-range KIA Rio, with heated seats and a heated steering wheel, ensuring that you can not only continue to get about without interruption, but you can do so in style.

    We now have two KIA Rio cars available, alongside many other comfortable and reliable models.

    Beat the MOT rush this autumn

    We’re expecting record demand for MOTs this autumn. Almost twice as many people as usual will need an MOT in October and November.

    That means Scotlands Ash Garage will be extremely busy.

    You can beat the rush – get your test done now. There’s an easy fix. If you get your MOT done this August, you’ll make sure your car is safe to drive – and you can beat the rush.

    If you want to keep your annual MOT date the same, it’s worth knowing you can book an MOT test with us up to a month minus a day before yours is due to expire, and you can still keep your renewal date. So if your test is due in September, consider booking with us in August instead – we’ll make sure your vehicle is roadworthy and you won’t have to worry about getting your MOT done for another year.

    Of course, if you absolutely cannot move your MOT forward from autumn, we’ll do our very best to fit you in.

    But if you can, please do think about getting your test done soon to stay safe on the roads, and beat the autumn rush.

    Keeping Oxfordshire motorists on the straight and narrow

    Motorists in Didcot, Oxfordshire can now access wheel alignment services at Scotlands Ash Garage, helping them to stay safe, stay legal and save money.

    Peter Welch, the garage’s proprietor said: “This is a big string in our bow and will enable us to further support the local community. Wheel alignment has a positive effect on road safety and drivers’ wallets, as if wheel alignment is not correct, this has serious implications on how the car drives and corners.

    “It also badly affects tyre wear, risking reduced grip in the wet, reduced tyre life and of course the chance of a hefty fine if the police notice before you do.”

    The garage has chosen the very latest wheel alignment equipment from a leading UK supplier, Absolute Alignment. This gives a comprehensive before and after print-out, which will give customers the peace of mind of a job well done, together with recommendations for any other remedial work needed.

    Welch added: “Vehicle alignment isn’t part of the MOT test, but we think it should be. It’s not only the poor state of our roads that causes problems, but general wear and tear as cars last much longer than they used to. Surveys show that over 40 percent of cars on the road are carrying suspension damage that should be corrected, so why risk it?”

    Please contact us for more information and prices of vehicle alignment checks and repairs.

    Scotlands Ash Garage fully open as normal MOT testing set to return

    Motorists will no longer be able to extend their MOT for six months from 1st August.

    This will not only significantly increase road safety but will give a much-needed boost to the automotive sector overall.

    Scotlands Ash Garage is now urging  drivers who have previously extended their MOT to bring their vehicle in as soon as possible.

    Wendy Williamson from trade body IAAF said: “We’ve already been hearing from members who have experienced concerning issues first-hand, whereby customers have been driving around in vehicles that are a threat to the safety of the driver and the general public.”
