Chester, United Kingdom, (10th November, 2011) – ebeepbeep, an online car service and MOT booking website designed to save drivers money, is warning motorists to prepare for the winter weather or face expensive repairs in light of forecasters’ predictions that this winter could be colder than usual.

Breakdowns typically soar during the winter months, as car parts are placed under greater strain. Citing research from Warranty Direct, which showed that some parts are 283% more likely to fail in winter, compared to the summer months, ebeepbeep is keen that motorists take the risks of steep repair bills seriously.

The same research showed that parts such as thermostats, heater motors, wiper motors and alternators were all far more likely to fail in the winter, costing hundreds of pounds to replace. With fuel and insurance prices rising ever further, forking out for repairs that ebeepbeep claims could be avoided, is an expense Britain’s cash-strapped motorists could do without.

To help, ebeepbeep is offering motorists the chance to put their car through a free winter health check. It covers all the essential parts most impacted by the cold weather. The health checks take place at participating garages from the website’s nationwide network.

“We’d encourage motorists to find time and have their car checked before the weather gets colder,” said ebeepbeep’s Andrew Wilson. “Allowing a professional technician to look over their car could help drivers avoid high repair bills and the inconvenience of breaking down.”

Interested motorists are encouraged to visit to book their winter health check.
