Halfords has extended its Mobile Expert service to London, following its pilot in the West Midlands, Manchester and Surrey, as the company looks to attract garage customers.
The fast fit chain placed five new vans in London on 30 March, which it says will cover the capital.
They company plans to roll out between 100 and 150 vans across the UK within the next two years.
Halfords’ mobile service offers customers 11 different motoring services including servicing, oil changes, tyres and battery replacement.
Karl Baker, from Halfords, responsible for the launch of the service, said: “With our new vans, we can reach nearly a third of the UK’s households, bringing great convenience to wherever they are based.
“Drivers have always been able to go to the garage for these jobs, and now we can bring our expertise directly to them.”
Each of the Mobile Expert Mercedes Sprinter vans is equipped with technology and diagnostic equipment to tackle jobs that motorists are unlikely to process themselves.
The service includes bigger jobs such as interim Services and tyre changes, but also jobs like windscreen and paint chip repairs and the fitting of dash cams.
Mr Baker added: “If their battery goes flat or their windscreen wipers stop working, they can simply book online and we’ll drive to them.
“The demand for convenience is growing as people lead increasingly busy lives, which is why we are expanding our offer.”
