Halfords logoHalfords FREE £15 winter car checks*Normally includes free screenwash top-up

Ends Mar 2016

Halfords is offering free winter car checks at all of its stores until Thu 31 Mar 2016. There's no need to book, simply drive to any Halfords* or Halfords Autocentre to get a free five-point car check (valued at about £15).

Checks via the free offer include:

  • Battery 
  • Bulbs 
  • Wiper blades 
  • Oil levels 
  • Screenwash levels, topped up for free

Halfords says it takes about 15 minutes and you don't need to book in advance, but you can book online if you want a specific time slot. It'll top up your screenwash up to two litres, norm £2ish. There is no obligation to buy anything or act on any advice on previous deals, but be prepared - staff might try to upsell you.

You can also get your tyres checked...

You can also get a free tyre safety check when you drive to a Halfords Autocentre (find your nearest). The service includes a pressure check and full tyre inspection, and Halfords says it shouldn't take any longer than about 10 minutes, but you should allow for up to an hour in case you have to wait. Again, there's no obligation to act on any advice.

We checked with Halfords and it told us you can have both the winter car check and the tyre safety check carried out on the same day. Unlike the winter car check, the tyre check is available at any time of year. There's no need to book in advance.

Halfords logoHalfords FREE car maintenance lesson*Incl checking oil, wiper blades & lights

Expired

You can book a free 'winter motor workshop' at Halfords* for Mon 12 Oct to learn how to check your car’s roadworthiness. Halfords says it's available in 397 of its 420 retail stores (not its autocentres).

Bizarrely, it's marketed as women only, but it will allow men too. You need to book online in advance, via the link above. There are eight places available for each class - more than 3,000 places nationwide - so book quickly if you want to attend one.

The workshop includes:

  • Checking oil
  • Checking wiper blades
  • Advice on checking your lights
  • Oil levels 
  • Screen wash check with a free top-up
  • Tips on taking care of your car in the winter

Why is Halfords marketing this as women only?

Halfords says it's offering these workshops as a result of "extensive research" that suggests many women don't know how to perform basic checks on their car (although at MSE Towers, some of the women know a lot more about cars than the men, so we don't necessarily agree with Halfords - MSE Ant, Guy and Tom certainly have no idea about how to change their oil). But as we've already said, Halfords did tell us men will be welcome to take part.

There's no obligation to buy anything or act on any advice, but be prepared - staff might try to upsell you.

Halfords logoHalfords FREE summer car checks*700+ locations available. Incl free screenwash top-up

Summer's officially here, so it's a good time to ensure your car's ready for any road trips you might have planned. Drive to any Halfords* or Halfords Autocentre* and you can get a free six-point summer car check (valued at £15) until Mon 21 Sep. There are more than 700 locations available.

Checks on your car include:

  • Battery 
  • Bulbs 
  • Wiper blades 
  • Oil levels 
  • Screenwash levels, topped up for free
  • Air conditioning 

Halfords says it takes about 15 minutes and you don't need to book in advance, but you can book online if you want a specific time slot. It'll also top up your screenwash for free (up to 2 litres, norm £2ish). There's no obligation to buy anything or act on any advice, but be prepared - staff might try to upsell you.

You can also get your tyres checked...

In addition to the free summer car check, you can also get a free tyre safety check when you drive to a Halfords Autocentre (find your nearest*). The service includes a pressure check and full tyre inspection, and shouldn't take any longer than about 10 minutes - again there’s no obligation to act on any advice.

We checked with Halfords and it told us you can have both the summer car check and the tyre safety check carried out on the same day. Unlike the summer car check, the tyre check is available at any time of year. There's no need to book in advance.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
