Quality Braking Systems

Your car’s braking system is one of the most critical components for safety. Ensure your vehicle is equipped with high-quality brake pads, brake discs and calipers. These parts should be regularly inspected and replaced when worn. APD offers a wide range of braking components from reputable brands, ensuring optimal stopping power and reliable performance.

Well-Maintained Tyres

Proper tyre maintenance is essential for safe driving. Regularly check your tyre pressure, tread depth, and overall tyre condition. Invest in high-quality tyres that suit your driving style and the road surface  you drive on APD offers a selection of top-notch tyre maintenance tools from trusted manufacturers to help ensure your car has great grip, traction and overall safety.

Reliable Lighting and Visibility

Good visibility is essential for safe driving, especially during adverse weather conditions or at night. Regularly inspect your car’s bulbs, including headlights, taillights and indicators, when you notice a deterioration upgrade and replace the affected bulbs. Consider upgrading to modern, energy-efficient LED lighting for enhanced visibility and improved safety. APD stocks a range of lighting solutions to ensure that you can see and be seen on the road.

Effective Wiper Blades

Clear visibility during rain or snow is vital for safe driving. Check your wiper blades regularly and replace them if they show signs of wear or streaking. Choose high-quality wiper blades that efficiently clear your windscreen, ensuring a clear view of the road ahead. APD offers a variety of wiper blades that provide excellent performance in all weather conditions.

Essential Safety Accessories

In addition to car parts, consider equipping your vehicle with essential safety accessories. Items such as fire extinguishers, first aid kits, warning triangles and reflective vests can prove invaluable in emergency situations. APD offers a range of safety accessories to ensure you are well-prepared for any unforeseen events.

Regular Maintenance and Professional Servicing

Regular maintenance and professional servicing are essential to keep your car in tip top condition. Follow your vehicle’s recommended maintenance guide and have it serviced by qualified technicians.
