Motorists worried about the state of their vehicle over the winter period can take advantage of a new offer to have it checked out – for free.
The nationwide ATS Euromaster network is giving drivers the chance to pick up the assessment for nothing at any of its 490 centres across the UK.
Vince McGurk, group operations director at the company, commented that this may come in handy as "breakdowns nearly double when the cold weather sets in".
Mr McGurk commented that tyre tread is also an essential part of vehicle maintenance which drivers need to stay on top of.
He said: "The onset of winter also sees the number of road traffic accidents peak, as drivers struggle for grip on snow and ice-covered roads."
ATS Euromaster was established in 1961 and provides service for car, van, 4×4, truck and forklift drivers in the UK.
