The team at Fix Auto Stratford hosted another successful Ladies Night to teach some essential vehicle maintenance skills.

STRATFORD (Ontario), May 23, 2018 – In a relaxed and warm environment, Fix Auto Stratford welcomed close to 30 guests of all ages to their Ladies Night. This is the third event of its kind for the shop and was a resounding success. The $20 tickets included the workshop, refreshments and a donation to a local women’s shelter. “We are so pleased to host this event again and have a great turnout,” said Kate Tapley, Fix Auto Stratford owner. “It’s great to be able to give women the opportunity to learn some new vehicle maintenance skills in a no-pressure, fun learning environment.”

The night began with a local police constable sharing some general safe driving tips as well as some best practice safety tips geared toward women. The participants were then split up into groups of four which allowed for some hands-on learning from highly skilled technicians. Discount Car & Truck Rental graciously loaned four cars to the event so participants could learn and practice their new skills.

Participants learned to:

  • Check oil and a general review of what fluids go where;
  • Boost a battery, both with a battery pack and with jumper cables;
  • Check tire pressure;
  • Jack up a vehicle; and
  • Change a tire.

“Our goal with this event is to teach some important vehicle maintenance skills in a relaxed, social environment,” commented Tapley. “Not everyone has someone they can ask, so we’re happy to host this Ladies Night and give everyone a chance to learn.” The Fix Auto Stratford team will continue to host these Ladies Night events and if you’d like more information, contact the shop at (519) 273-4000.
