Previous Autoglass Offers - Autoglass Free Wiper Blades
To celebrate their 40th birthday,
Autoglass has today launched a free windscreen wipers promotion,
accompanied by a national television advertising campaign. The
campaign will highlight the importance of visibility when driving,
especially during winter when road conditions are worse and there
are more hours of darkness.
Car maintenance is one of the expenses many
motorists have pushed further down their priority list in order
to save money.
In the advert, Autoglass technician John Porter
(what happened to Gavin from Autoglass?) talks viewers through the
importance of regularly changing wiper blades, and introduces the
free wipers offer as a thank you to customers for choosing
Autoglass over the past 40 years.
The free wipers are available to any Autoglass
repair or replacement customer.
Martin Howard, spokesperson at Brake, commented:
"With winter weather now upon us, drivers need to ensure their
vehicles are regularly checked and maintained. It only takes a few
minutes to conduct vital safety checks on windscreen wipers, as
well as tyres, windows, mirrors and lights, and it could prevent a
costly and devastating crash. Many drivers don't realise that poor
quality wipers or brittle blades can have an impact on visibility
and therefore safety. With this in mind, we recommend that drivers
change their wiper blades at least every year, as well as regularly
conduct safety checks on their vehicle."
Andre May, Sales and Marketing Director at
Autoglass® said: "We wanted to thank our customers for
choosing Autoglass® over the last 40 years and give somethingback.
With dark nights and poor weather fast approaching, we hope our
free wipers offer increases awareness amongst motorists of the
importance of regularly maintaining their vehicles in order to
ensure their safety. It simply can't be something which is ignored,
even when drivers are looking to budget."
The free Bosch wipers offer runs from 8am
on Monday the 8th October until 6pm on Monday
6 Car Safety and Maintenance Tips for Winter
Keep a bottle of diluted screen wash in the boot in case you run
Top up your anti-freeze levels to ensure your water pump doesn't
freeze. If you hear a squealing sound when you first drive off,
this could be a frozen water pump.
Clear snow from the roof, as well the windows, before driving
off. Otherwise snow will slide onto your windscreen and impede
Use a cigarette lighter to thaw out frozen locks.
Keep a pair of shoes in the car. Walking through snow then
getting in the car with wet feet makes the pedals slippery.
Pull away in second gear if driving in the snow, gently easing
the clutch out. This reduces the chances of wheel spin.
