Chelmsford
3.2 / 5

Established in 1974, Formula One Autocentres set out with a mission to deliver a completely new fast-fit experience to its customers. This would feature clean, modern premises, high-tech equipment and highly trained technicians; far removed from the kind of service normally associated with the industry.

Forty years down the line, we have grown to become one of the UK’s largest independent autocentre chains. The business remains family owned and continues to uphold its original commitment to delivering the highest quality service at the most competitive prices.

That commitment has proved incredibly popular with motorists, creating many thousands of loyal customers who continue to put their trust in Formula One Autocentres.

As a result, the company has gone from strength to strength, currently boasting over 85 state-of-the-art branches across England, with over 500 highly trained staff working seven days a week to provide a full range of services including tyres, exhausts, batteries, brakes, clutches, MOT's and servicing.

We remain resolutely independent, and as a family owned business, avoid being tied down to any single manufacturer or supplier. This gives us the freedom and flexibility to offer the biggest deals on the widest possible range of top branded products, making the company a viable, attractive and cost-effective alternative to both the big national chains and smaller local independent outlets. Quite simply, Formula One Autocentres provides cost-conscious motorists with the most reliable and affordable means of maintaining their vehicles.

We defend our position at the forefront of the fast-fit industry by constantly evolving and developing innovative new products and services to meet the ever-changing demands of our customers. With an ongoing expansion programme and by regular investment in technology, we continue to provide unbeatable fast-fit service along with the very best value prices. In fact, we can confidently claim that no other company is better equipped to face the motoring challenges of the future.

Wickford Autocentre

Wickford

Going by first impressions, Russel Gardens in Wickford may not be the sort of place where you would expect to find a modern auto centre, and especially not one that can offer you fixed MOT and Servicing prices. However, that is exactly what you get with Wickford Autocentre.

When Mr Choudhury decided to purchase the site of a former garage and used car sales dealer, he decided it would be to start afresh by completely stripping the site of its infrastructure including tools and machinery. Following a very high figure cash injection into this business, Wickford Autocentre now offers many facilities and services, many of which are usually only found in main dealerships.

These include but are not limited to;
MOTs / Servicing / Tyres / Nitrogen Tyre Inflation / Brakes / Auto diagnostics / Air condition servicing / Timing belts / Head gasket / All major repairs undertaken / Accident management services.

Economical servicing options for are available every pocket and we also offer up to 12months parts and labour warranties to ensure total customer confidence. Every service includes free brake, exhaust, shocks, tyre, battery and clutch checks.

A top-down overhaul has catapulted the auto centre into popularity with the local vehicle operators and motor traders. With a transparent, competitive and fair pricing strategy, a significant number of private car users are making a switch to Wickford Autocentre.

So if you are looking for a customer friendly, economical and competent technical team to look after your vehicle, call into Wickford Autocentre today!

Aircon Regas in Chelmsford
Frequently asked questions
+

How does car Air Conditioning work?

Your air conditioning works in a similar way to your fridge. It uses 'refrigerant', which changes from a liquid to a gas at a relatively low temperature, in a series of coils. When it does, it absorbs heat. An air-conditioner blows air past these coils, cooling the air as it passes. Afterwards, this gas is converted back to a liquid, creating heat, but this heat is blown outside, rather than into, your car.
+

What is an Air-Con 'Regas'?

An air-con 'regas' or 'recharge' involves removing all refrigerants from your air-conditioning system and replacing with the precise quantity of fresh refridgerant. It is required if your air-con is no longer blowing as cold as it should, or isn't clearing up fogged windows.
+

How much does Air-Con 'Regassing' cost?

A regas typically costs from £40 upwards, but almost always under £100.
+

How can I prolong the life of my Air Conditioning?

Use it! Make sure to switch on your air-con every few weeks in the winter/spring and let it run until the air is blowing really cold. This will mean it is more reliable in the summer.
+

Can I regas Air-Conditioning myself?

Air-Con Regas 'kits' are available to inject fresh refrigerant into your system. However, they won't remove old refrigerant, impurities, moisture etc, nor will they check for leaks. Given the low cost of a professional re-gas, we would always recommend it.

Why do you need an Aircon Regas?

The majority of modern cars have air conditioning fitted as standard as it is vital for making the ride in a car comfortable for passengers.

An air conditioning system works by using refrigerant gas to push air through several components in the aircon system and then into your car.

Whether its freezing cold or boiling hot, it’s your air conditioning which makes driving in such conditions bearable, so it’s important to look after the system!

Surprisingly, over 10% of air-con gas escapes through the system each year. This means that the power of the system drops significantly over time. However, your air conditioning will not be checked during an MOT or service which is why it’s important that you make an effort to have it checked specifically.

Car manufacturers recommend that cars should have their air con recharged (Regassed) every two years.

Even if your car is new it should be something that you have checked as your cars performance could be significantly affected.

This is because the engine will have to work harder to produce cold air if there is an issue with the air conditioning meaning more fuel will be required to make the system work.

If the system has not been recharged in two years, the drop in engine performance will be noticeable.

As soon as you realise a drop in the power of your air con you should take the vehicle in for repair. If there is an unpleasant smell being emitted, this is another sign that the air con needs looking at.

What happens during an Aircon Regas?

The job of recharging air conditioning is not complex and will not take long.

The mechanic will carry out a leaks check on the air con system before the repair work, to ensure the job can be carried out without causing damage to the car.

As soon as this is complete, the technician will be able to recharge the system.

The mechanic carrying out the work will first remove old refrigerant from your car as well as the current gas and lubricant.

They will then replace it with new gas and lubricants.

The job will also typically include an entire system clean out which is carried out to remove any bacterial build up.

This is often the reason for a strange or unpleasant smell being emitted from the air conditioning which is why it is important to have this job completed every two years.

The whole process should take around 45 minutes as there are no new parts required for install.

The air conditioning in your car should be noticeably improved after a regas if you haven’t had one for over two years.

If you want to ensure your air conditioning stays in tip top condition, make sure to use it regularly as this the compressor will stay lubricated.

Finding a mechanic you can trust to do a good job and charge a fair price, is not always easy, which is why we simplified the process.

We work with a network of over 10,000 mechanics and garages across the UK so we can find competitive air conditioning regas deals for you.
