Ladies Group Attend Car Maintenance Talk at P.A. Blackburn

We recently hosted a local ladies’ group (LAFF), the theme was back to front  and a car maintenance talk, where we ran through the main vehicle maintenance tasks, such as how to change wiper blades, check and replace oil, water and coolant, changing a wheel, and other routine tasks.

The talk was well received and the ladies had coffee and mints, then dessert at the garage.  For the main course they all went back to the Queen’s Head in Finghall.

LAFF is a group related to the Ladies’ Circle and Tangent, which in turn are part of the Roundtable movement.

If you have a community group, team, club or society and you think your membership would enjoy or benefit from a straightforward talk such as this, feel free to contact us to discuss.

Case Study: Clients in London

We have one client from London, who gets his vehicle serviced every two months when he visits his family near to Finghall.

He tells us that the collection and delivery service fits in nicely with his holiday and that our prices compare favourably with London garages.

Visiting from London?

If you are visiting North Yorkshire from London, we can collect your vehicle for servicing and drop it off before you leave.

To see how our prices compare with the capital, call Jenny Blackburn on 01677 450 833.

Car Repairs While on Holiday in the Yorkshire Dales

If you are staying at a B&B or holiday cottage in the Yorkshire Dales and need repairs to your vehicle, we can collect it for repairs and return it to your accommodation afterwards.

PA Blackburn Ltd can make repairs to a wide variety of motorhomes, Winnebagos, campervans, trailers and cars – including classic and vintage cars attending shows, rallies and convoys through the Dales.

If you are visiting with your cycles for the Tour de France, bringing a special car for a tour of the Dales or towing a horse trailer for an competitive event, PA Blackburn Ltd can assist with your vehicle repair needs.

We can even perform an MOT while you wait. The Queen’s Head pub in Finghall is a fantastic place to dine while your vehicle is attended by our mechanics. Please note, the while-you-wait service is by appointment only.

Get in touch on 01677 450 833 to find out how PA Blackburn Ltd can help keep you on the road during your Dales break.

North Yorkshire Breakdown Recovery Service

New clients and old might be interested to know that we are able to offer a breakdown recovery service to them in the North Yorkshire locality.

If you have broken down, and you are near Leyburn, Catterick Garrison (or Catterick Village), Richmond, Bedale, or the surrounding towns and villages of North Yorkshire, give P.A. Blackburn Ltd a call and we can come and collect your broken down vehicle, using our trailer.

After collection, we are a full service vehicle mechanic, and we can therefore discover what is wrong with your car (or other vehicle), let you know how much it will cost, and make a repair. We also provide MOTs, should yours be due, too.

Just call us on 01677 450 833 to arrange breakdown recovery wherever in North Yorkshire your vehicle is.

We Will Collect & Deliver Your Car

Got a car which needs a routine repair or MOT? Don’t have time to bring it in and organise a lift before and during this time? We can collect and deliver your vehicle before and after work is carried out!

Just request collection and delivery at the time of booking and we will arrange for this at your convenience.

Remember, if you are booking an MOT, an early booking will help to make this as simple as possible, and, for existing customers, we do offer an MOT reminder service (at no additional cost) so you don’t have to keep track of your renewal date.
