Preparation & Checks

Discover more about our high standards of vehicle care

We are proud of our preparation standards and don’t take half measures when it comes to ensuring high quality standards are met. That’s why our retail cars undergo a 120-multipoint inspection through our onsite MOT and Service Centre. All Windmill Motors vehicles are checked by our team of qualified and experienced vehicle technicians before you take delivery or arrange a collection.

  • Engine

Oil Service

We carry out an oil and filter change on every car that’s due an upcoming service if due within 6 months. During the service, essential checks are also carried out on critical components, such as the suspension and braking system, to ensure they do not let you down.


For MOT-eligible cars aged three years and over, we’ll ensure a pass certificate is attained before you collect your new car if due within 6 months. An MOT test pass is confirmation that our cars meet the strict road safety and environmental standards set. You can also check the MOT status of any vehicle on the website.

History Check

For your peace of mind, we conduct a background history check on all cars we market, using third-party industry-leading data providers such as CAP HPI. We’ll check a range of registers to ensure your new car isn’t stolen, previously written off, has outstanding finance or mileage discrepancies. 


A full valet and deep clean is carried out on each car’s interior and exterior, ensuring everything will be ship shape for when you arrive or when your car is delivered. All of our vehicles are sanitised when they arrive on site and when they are collected
