How you can ensure your car is road ready in winter at Newham in Truro
Monday 19th February, 2018
Winter can take its toll on your car – from potholes to chipped and cracked windscreens and freezing road temperatures; motorists need to be confident that their vehicle is in top condition.
Newham is well known for the range of repair and servicing companies based at the riverside business district, with customers receiving a high quality service and knowledge at a competitive price.
If your car gets damaged and is in need of TLC, DB Bodyworks is the place to visit. A paint specialist with a strong background in auto spraying, owner Dan Bond and his apprentice Ryan revamp between 10 and 15 cars a week. Working on everything from scratches and bumpers to wing mirrors and dents as well as carrying out custom re-sprays, DB Bodyworks has built up a strong reputation with private and business clients. In fact, the company carries out regular work for other Newham-based motor companies.
Aiming to complete work on each car within two or three days, DB Bodyworks also offers an extra transport service for customers. After dropping off a car at the Newham business, customers can be driven back into the centre of Truro and to the bus or train station.
A Cornish winter can throw everything at motorists; one minute it can be gloriously sunny, the next you could be deluged by showers or even found yourself driving through a snow flurry – the case for many a driver recently when the Duchy experienced its first snow showers in eight years.
