There are a wide variety of maintenance issues that can heighten the chances of having a car accident. Some of the main ones are a cracked windscreen, broken lights and wipers, faulty lights and bald tyres.
Keeping up with car maintenance is crucial and keeps you and your loved ones safe. However, costs can add up and make it difficult to afford.
Luckily, there is something that employers can do to help. Providing MotorSave can give employers the chance to support their employees with car maintenance. Employees can save on any regular maintenance that they may need doing.
The cost is spread through 12 months and taken from an employee’s gross monthly salary. This makes it easier to budget for the maintenance needed without costing a chunk of money in one go. An average taxpayer would save 12% and higher rate taxpayers save 2%. Not only do you save anyway just by using the scheme, if Halfords have any offers or promotions on then you can still make use of these!
Another perk of MotorSave is that it’s run through Halfords which is beneficial for a few reasons! Halfords is a widely trusted car maintenance provider so employees can have peace of mind that their car is in good hands. As Halfords is such a big company, there are centres all over the UK so no matter where you live in the UK, you can make use of MotorSave.
Also, most Halfords Autocentres are open 6 days a week, some even 7, and are open for most of the day so you can find a time that works for you to deal with any car maintenance. This is particularly great because whilst it’s beneficial to have the MotorSave benefit in place for regular maintenance, the flexibility can help you to take care of any emergencies too.
MotorSave being so flexible means that the amount employees can apply for can change and also be used on multiple repairs or maintenance across the year. This means that if an employee applies for an amount and doesn’t use it all on their original maintenance, it doesn’t have to go to waste. It also helps if they have allowance left over for the future because they won’t need to reapply every time and wait for the money to land in their bank account.
Being safe on the road is great in terms of preventing injury but it can also help boost their well-being too. Having a car makes everyday things like grocery shopping and days out with friends or family easier and these are all vital experiences to maintaining a good sense of wellbeing. The scheme also helps them to keep on top of their finances too with easier to manage payments, causing less stress related to big, unexpected payments.
For employees, knowing that they can take care of their car quickly and affordably will give them peace of mind that their car will be there to make all of these things possible and fairly straightforward. No more delays because of a tyre change on the way to the beach!
