Textar introduces spring check-up campaign

Brake brand, Textar has introduced its spring check-up campaign which includes poster and a brochure.

It details 10 important tips for correct vehicle maintenance and preparation for the spring and summer following from months of harsh weather and driving conditions.

TMD Friction, the global manufacturing behind the Textar brand, has identified an influx in the number of cars visiting garages with tyre related queries and issues as the winter weather disperses.

If work needs to be carried out, Textar now recommends that mechanics offer further checks, including a diagnosis on the condition of brakes pads and wear, to ensure a reliable, full service check-up is offered to all customers.

The 16-page brochure will be available to download free of charge on the Textar website (

“The feedback we received regarding the spring check-up campaign last year was very positive,” said Nick Hayes, UK Sales Manager at TMD Friction. “Advising that garages offer these additional checks during any wheel related maintenance means the customer receives peace of mind they’re in safe hands and gives the garage a reputation for putting the customer first. In this day in age, this kind of status is invaluable with consumers often seeking reviews before visiting a garage.

“Customer retention is imperative for garages, with most individuals remaining loyal to a garage where they have had a positive experience. With vehicles needing constant check-ups and regular maintenance work, this loyalty can help a garage strive. We’re proud to be enforcing that positive experience when customers come for something as simple as a tyre change.”
