The dreaded MOT!!
On the run up to our car needing an MOT, everything starts to go a little wrong…a beep goes off on the dashboard and goodness knows what is going on underneath the bonnet!
Having to fork out for the cost of the MOT plus any repairs needed makes my wallet quiver.
While I try to put a little aside each month to save for the MOT, I still worry about it.
Did you know some 66% of people don’t make any preparations for their MOT, leaving it a month before it’s due and 25% of people leave it until 2 weeks before the MOT is due.
But what if all that stress could go away and you could get a FREE MOT?!
** runs off to check when our MOT is due! **
Halfords is running an amazing offer where you can get a free MOT with any purchase.
Ok, so you’re not able to buy one of their 5p carrier bags, but you could buy a £1.49 car air freshener (they’re handy anyway) and then get a free MOT at Halfords worth £54.85!
How does the free MOT work?
It’s really easy to get your MOT for next to nothing.
- Buy any item from Halfords, either online or in-store (it doesn’t need to be the cheapest item, if you’re after something in particular).
- You’ll get an email once you’ve made your purchase with your free MOT voucher.
- Next, go to the Halfords Autocentre MOT page and add an MOT to your basket.
- Add your free MOT voucher code at checkout.
You’re able to use the free MOT voucher at any Halfords Autocentre over a 13-month period.
When is your MOT due?
If you’ve only just had your MOT you don’t need to feel that you’ve missed out.
While you need to make a purchase from Halfords anytime until 14 October 2018, your free MOT voucher can be used up to 13 months later.
No idea when your MOT is due?
Don’t worry! Around 53% of people don’t know when their MOT is due.
While saying write it on your calendar or put a reminder on your phone is easy enough, with busy lifestyles it can still be easy to forget!
Why not use a free MOT reminder tool and you’ll get an email to prompt you to book your car it.
