At WheelXChange we want to help you ensure your vehicle is safe for the season ahead.

When you book your wheel and tyre change with WheelXChange, you can also choose to have our skilled technician complete a Seasonal Vehicle Health Check on your vehicle. For only CHF45 + VAT.

During a Seasonal Vehicle Health Check we will check your car’s:

1. Battery

We will test the battery’s condition to make sure that it is performing correctly. If your battery is defective, we will provide you with a quotation to replace it and dispose of your old battery. We carry the most common batteries on board ourvan, but if we are not able to replace your battery during our visit, we will return at a time that is convenient for you.

2. Coolant / Anti-freeze

We check the strength and level of your vehicles coolant. If a top up is needed we charge CHF12 per litre (or part thereof).

3. Wiper blades

We check your blades for splits or damage, and ensure that they are cleaning your wind screen correctly. If you need a replacement blade we charge CHF45 per blade, irrespective of size, and we fit Bosch aerotwin wiper blades.

4. Windscreen wash system

We will check its operation along with the level of screen wash and top this up, free of charge, if necessary.

5. Light bulbs

We will check for faulty or broken bulbs. If we need to replace a bulb we charge CHF35 for halogen head lights and CHF25 for other bulbs. If you have a defective Xenon or LED bulb we will provide you with a quotation before changing these bulbs, as the bulbs can be quite expensive.

6. Windscreen

We will check for chips or cracks, which if left could get worse causing the windscreen to fail

7. Engine oil level

We will check your engine oil level. If the oil needs topping up, we charge CHF28 per litre or part thereof. We always use Castrol oils, and of course always use the correct grade of oil for your car.

8. Ad Blue level

(Diesel vehicles only) If your AD blue needs topping up, we charge CHF5 per litre or part thereof.

We carry most replacement parts and fluids in our mobile service vans, so we can normally carry out any necessary repairs and top up fluids during our visit. If we don’t have the right parts with us, we will order the parts and return at a time that is convenient for you. Any replacements or fluid top ups will be invoiced to you at a later date.
