Cozy's carries out its own maintenance in its own purpose built workshop. The vehciles are rountinly maintained to the highest of standards.
The workshop is equipped with state of the art VOSA approved equipment, such as:
Head light beam setter
Our maintenance team has more then forty years experience between them, we also have an apprentice system in place with the local college.
To keep our high standards we follow the official VOSA Guild to Maintaining Roadworthiness very closely. The main points are:
Daily walk around checks/first use inspections
All drivers carry out a walk around check everyday for their vehicle
The checks include but not limited to, external conditions, lights, tyres,
wheel fixing, bodywork. Report any defects or symptoms of defects
that could prevent the safe operation of the vehicle.
Regular Safety Inspections
Each vehicle has a full inspection carried out on it every 4 weeks
All inspections are planned out 12 months in advance
All reports are
kept for 15 months
All driver defect and the safety inspections reports are checked on a regular
basis by the engineering director to insure compliance with the VOSA
requirements and our own internal quality systems with such regular
inspections, the maintenance team can also spot any possible issues or faults
that can be acted
on before becoming a defect
Annual PSV Testing
Similar to the MOT required for a car, each vehicle is required to be inspected
by VOSA at one of their testing stations. For the year ending 2007,
Cozys have a 90% pass rate at first presentation for testing.
The national average is 72%
