  • Booking in:
  • Land Rovers are done on Saturdays, Sundays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays
  • Time slots are: 8.30 and 9.30am - to 6pm
  • Courtesy Car - now mandatory (Unless you want to take an all day walk along the canal or you have someone to pick you up)
  • Note that in the new premises near Rugby we are out in the sticks and there are no buses so we will not accept your booking unless you also book the courtesy car (unless you want to go for a walk or a mountain bike ride along the canal all day). If you are bringing your vehicle to us yourself you can borrow our Peugeot 208 quicksilver supermini estate, 2 litre diesel, manual) as a courtesy car and have a great day out exploring Warwickshire while we rustproof your vehicle.
  • The courtesy car is not insured by me. If you have a comprehensive policy on your own car it usually covers you to drive other vehicles third party. This is fine with me, on the understanding that you will pay for any damage you cause to my car of course. If you don't want to take the risk you can get comprehensive day cover here for £20. Reg. no. KV05 JYN. The car has green flag breakdown cover (in the glove compartment). If you have a large dog it can go in the Honda SMX which has van space but you can't get day insurance for that because it's a Jap import. You can drive it third party on your own insurance.
  • Confirming your booking
  • Once you have booked in, to confirm your booking you will need to send a cheque for £100 (made out to Chris Parkinson) for the Before 'n' After improved waxoyl treatment or the CR coating together with a signed, printed off copy of the terms and conditions (both treatments) click here for the terms and conditions. A form with text in blue font will come up after you have completed filling in the diary and booking form to remind you and give you the address to send them to. (The address is also at the top of the terms and conditions first page.) When I receive your cheque, I will send you a receipt and confirmation and a 23 page information pack telling you how to get here and what you can do when you are here. In spring 2018 I put up a huge amount of information on this website about what you can do while we rustproof your vehicle on the "Attractions page". You will see 2 videos of how to find my premises in Smeaton Lane at the top. Click on the attractions page here. Please note: You do not need to send a covering letter with your cheque - just put the date of your booking and your telephone numbers on the back of the cheque. If we do not receive your cheque within two weeks, your booking will be cancelled (but if you can't make it let us know as quickly as possible anyway). Many people no longer use cheque books. You can do a bank transfer for the deposit. If you do, please print off a copy of the transaction or email me a screenshot. C J PARKINSON 20-73-48 13586146
