Do You Commute To Work? Or Are You Just Plain Busy!
According to the Transport Data Centre of the NSW Dept of Transport, nearly 25% of all employed people who live on the Central Coast commute to Sydney each day for work. The Sydney Morning Herald in an article by Jordan Baker back on 5th June 2007 estimated that this travel time equates to 5 weeks a year.
It is therefore no surprise to anyone that commuters often find it difficult to do such things as getting the car serviced or getting a new set of tyres.
Why We Want To Go Out Of Our Way To Help You
We also used to commute to Sydney for work, so we know first hand the challenges that this brings. We were also extremely tired and exhausted after what was effectively a 60-hour working week. We know what it’s like to sacrifice time with our families to keep the bills paid. We also still had to keep up with the chores that come with running a home, ie the lawns, little repair jobs, housekeeping and even washing the dog!
Important things that we knew had to be done, such as servicing the car or getting that new set of tyres, became a real hassle and as a result often got put off or forgotten. This inevitably caused problems later that resulted in spending more time and more money to fix the issue.
Here’s How We Can Help
- We offer free courtesy cars! Yes, you read that right. As long as you bring it back in one piece in the same condition or better than you found it, don’t get any fines, and return it with a full tank of fuel (as provided to you) it’s FREE. This includes driving it to Sydney and back for the day if need be.
- If you like we can do a “car swap” the night before your service and again after it is done so that there is absolutely no interruption to your routine. This is included as part of our FREE pick up and drop off service (check the link for available locations)
Our courtesy car fleet currently consists of three vehicles, so there is bound to be a vehicle there that will suit you. Of course if you wish to use a courtesy car, we’ll need you to book in advance to make sure it’s available for you.
Are You Just Plain Busy?
If you are busy with your job or children or simply life in general (aren’t we all?), then all of the above options are also available to you, as well as a free pick-up and drop-off service either from your home or work. You don’t have to go anywhere. We’ll simply collect your car, take it back to our workshop, fix it, then return it to you. And the best part about this? It’s provided at NO EXTRA COST TO YOU! Just check out our list of suburbs where this service is available and give us a call to book it in.
