“I’m always on the go, so booking my MOT on my phone was really useful.
I compared garages, picked the best one for me and even saved money, all whilst waiting for my morning coffee!”
“Very happy with the service on my car. Staff were polite and professional.”
“Overall, efficient service but failed to communicate minor MOT failure. Service staff very good.”
“Communication ,it was questioned if I could have the Skoda dealership stamp in my service book , as I had booked through Bookmygarage and paid a much lower price than normally quoted , in the end the book was stamped , as I said the work had been done there and the price shouldn’t have any bearing on the subject , I tried to ring Bookmygarage but was not available on a Saturday when I had the service done . I had a Ford car serviced previously at a Ford dealership without any problems .”
When a car is moving over rough or uneven surfaces, shock absorbers help to stop the car bouncing or vibrating too much and ensure that the tyres have full contact with the road surface all the time.
Enormous demands are placed on certain parts of cars when being driven. Shock absorbers are found on a car’s suspension, where they take the strain of all the constant bouncing up and down of the vehicle. Most cars’ wheels also have them. Worn shock absorbers will affect the car’s handling and braking, which can reduce your safety. That's why you must book a shock absorber repair promptly if anything feels wrong with your car's suspension.
Shock absorbers have a piston inside them that moves up and down in line with the suspension and, depending on the vehicle, hydraulic fluid or air chambers absorb the energy from the road caused by vibration.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Stourbridge or further afield, think about road user etiquette. Showing respect for other road users makes driving more pleasant for you and safer for everyone. For example, if you have to make a last minute change of lane, make your request to change clear to the driver who will need to let you in - and signal your thanks if they do. Be ready to abandon the change of lane if they won’t play ball - your safety (and that of other drivers and pedestrians) is more important than getting to your destination in the shortest time possible. When the position is reversed and a driver asks your permission to change lanes, allow them to as long as it is safe. If you get frustrated, avoid using your horn - it won’t improve matters and might make them considerably worse.
