Without a doubt now, not after the severe weather hits, is the time to get your car in tip top condition ready to face the winter months.

Screen wash, anti freeze, light bulbs, wiper blades, batteries and tyres all need to be checked and where necessary, replaced, if you want to avoid finding yourself stranded this winter.

If, like me, your 'car maintenance' skills start and end at the petrol cap, it's comforting to know that 1st Stop Cars near Southend has over 20 years' experience providing an instant, helpful service from major servicing to a simple oil change, and also a 'value' service if you don't wish to spend too much, but want to ensure your vehicle is safe and reliable.

And now 1st Stop Cars is offering a FREE hand car wash with every Invoice. That's right, every time you visit for an MOT, service, winter check or even a simple bulb replacement you will receive a free hand car wash voucher on payment and collection of your vehicle! Available to new and existing customers, you will find more details on thebestof Southend's Offers page.

Whilst the weather today is still relatively mild, experience shows that things can change dramatically within a few short hours. If your car is all clean and shiny on the outside, courtesy of 1st Stop Cars, do your bit by emptying the inside of all those empty coffee cups, take out wrappers, broken sun glasses and the bucket full of seashells which have been rattling about in the back since August!

Then get a little bit organised and re-fill with the essentials required to get you through the winter time, prepared for every eventuality!
