Over the past two years, we’ve placed considerable investment in refreshing a large number of our centres across the UK, particularly those that were in need of a little TLC. Late September marked a milestone in this programme as we completed our 150th refurbishment at our Brentwood centre.
To mark the occasion, Brentwood MP Eric Pickles joined us to cut the ribbon to declare the new look centre officially open. Customers will see an immediate difference when they visit the new Brentwood centre. From the outside the centre looks brand new with fresh new signage and a strong identity in our trademark blue and yellow colours.
The new reception has a much more inviting environment with comfy seating, hard wood flooring and a glass wall looking into the workshop so that customers can see the work being carried out on their car.
Inside the workshop we have also installed a new Hunter four wheel alignment machine. Hunter boasts some of the most accurate wheel alignment technology in the market and uses laser positioning and high definition image sensors to align wheels with pin point accuracy. Using a database with over 20 years of factory vehicle specifications, the Hunter machine allows us to provide wheel alignment to manufacturer standard.
Brentwood is one of many new centres being rolled out as ‘Kwik Fit Plus’ which means that as well as the standard services you have come to expect from Kwik Fit including tyres, brakes, exhausts, MoT and servicing; Kwik Fit Plus centres employ a master technician trained to the highest level recognised by the Automotive Technician Accreditation, who can also carry out a range of advanced mechanical repairs.
The Brentwood refurbishment is just one of 150 centres to receive the makeover treatment so far with many more in the pipeline across the country including upcoming openings at Plymouth, Dewsbury and Hove in the next month. Keep a look out for a new format Kwik Fit centre in your area.
