Safety Tip of the Week: Check That You Have All Your Belongings Before Leaving A Service Centre

By H&H Admin

Taking your car in for repairs or service means entrusting some of your possessions to that establishment.  Once you collect your car, you may not notice that certain items are amiss.  

Here are a couple of things you should check for when you collect your car.

Ensure that you have your service booklet, spare wheel, tool kit, red reflective triangle, and other belongings before you leave the service centre. Sometimes these items can be misplaced or forgotten and it’s much harder to convince them that something’s gone missing after you’ve already left.

Also, check that your fuel level hasn’t dropped by much as mechanics typically only take your car for a drive around the block to ensure that everything is in order.
