How to jump-start a car:

Returned from your holiday only to find that you left your lights on and killed your battery? No worries! If you know how to change a car battery, you can save money by not having to take the car to the garage. Equip yourself with a set of good-quality jumper cables and learn how to jump-start your car today.

How to check your vehicle’s fluids:

The fluids in your car are there to lubricate and cool off your vehicle – imperative for efficient and smooth running of your vehicle. These fluids include: power steering fluid, brake fluid, coolant, transmission fluid, and engine oil. Learn how to check the fluids in your vehicle yourself and save yourself a trip to the garage.

For recent accidental damage to your car, your car insurance provider is your safest option.
