Prevent costly automotive repairs with a six-monthly safety check

Currently all vehicles that are registered on or after 1 January 2000 are required to have a new WOF every 12 months. However, the mechanics at JT Automotive know that within 12 months a lot of things can go wrong. The NZ Transport Agency gives a great example… while your tyres may pass your WOF, you need to replace them once the tread gets to the minimum depth.

Waiting until your next inspection in 12 months decreases your vehicle’s safety so JT Automotive recommends a safety check every six months to ensure problems are spotted early and potentially saving you money in costly repairs and fines for defective vehicles.

As a responsible driver, it is your job to ensure your vehicle meets the WOF standard. During the six-monthly safety check, the mechanics at JT Automotive will check for multiple factors including the undercarriage, tyres and lights to ensure your vehicle really is safe to drive on the roads.

JT Automotive encourages open communication and actively listens to customers

The most common feedback the Christchurch mechanics at JT Automotive receive is that customers feel confident dealing with us. All our mechanics are here to explain what is wrong with your car in plain English and avoid using jargon you might not understand.

Transparency is important and you are provided with a free quote, clearly stipulating parts and labour, so that you can make an informed decision. At all times you are kept in the loop about your vehicle, with additional mechanical and electrical repairs only undertaken with your permission. Our mechanics look forward to meeting you.
