Well today was fun,how many of you could not pull away this morning,guess how many phone calls we had regards brakes frozen on 15 😀
Generally caused by water freezing in the handbrake cables between the outer covering and the inner cables.
The only solutions are replacement cables,or wait until the temperature-rises🙏🏻
And tomorrow apparently it is to going to get much colder👍

The scary thing Mike,we cannot stop a person driving a dangerous vehicle from a garage.Yet a car,van,minibus can cause just as much carnage as a lorry.

I posted that yesterday, it is getting strict but yet there are still dodgy garages out there, but reverse light , engine light , brake fluid come on, the mot tester mose as well do a full service, that is what i check for not the tester!!!!!!!!

Do you not think it's about time a GV9 type Prohibition was introduced for Class 4 ( and more ) ? As I see it there's nothing stopping a dangerous vehicle being driven from the testing station. At least a heavy would need recovering from the testing station after a major fail..
