Taking Our Work Seriously With A Smile

COVID-19 Mobile Remapping Process



Our Mobile Remapping Process Shown Step-By-Step

If you are not having your remap carried out at our Shrewsbury Car Care Centre & we are coming out to you at your home or place of work, these are the steps we will follow to keep you, our team members & your vehicle COVID-19 Secure

  • When we arrive, we’ll park in a safe place at least 2m away from your door
  • We’ll sanitise our hands before putting on some disposable gloves
  • Then we’ll either call you or knock on your door, standing at least 2m away, & ask your to leave the keys to your vehicle in the container & step back inside
  • Your keys will then be misted with sanitising spray which contains 90% alcohol & left for approx 30 seconds before we handle them
  • We then use anti-bacterial spray on a new cloth to clean touch points on both the exterior & interior, such as handles, control stalks, knobs & buttons we’ll be touching
  • Inside your vehicle we’ll place a seat cover on the drivers seat & apply a protective film on the steering wheel, gear selector & handbrake (if present)
  • We then carry out our tuning & remapping process
  • Before road testing it, we carry out an anti-bacterial fogging process inside your vehicle
  • We’ll inform you that we’ll be road testing your vehicle either by calling you or knocking & standing at least 2m from your door
  • Once we’ve completed a satisfactory road test, we’ll remove all protective covers, wipe down the interior & exterior touch points with a new cloth sprayed with anti-bacterial spray.
  • Before handing them back to you, we re-sanitise your keys with a mist of sanitising spray which contains 90% alcohol
  • We’ll then invite you to road test your vehicle after we take some payment details, which we will not process until your road test is completed & you are happy for us to take payment.
  • We’ll confirm you’re happy to process your payment
  • Once you return inside, we’ll post your warranty booklet (where applicable) & card receipt through the letter box before we leave

COVID-19 Getting An Estimate or Quote At The Car Care Centre


Calling In To Get An Estimate or Quote At The Car Care Centre

If you need to call into the Car Care Centre to get an estimate or quote, this is the procedure we’ll follow to ensure we’re all COVID-19 Secure

  • If we need to see your vehicle to give you an estimate or quote, we’d prefer to make an appointment so that we can limit the number of visors at any 1 time, but you are still able to call without appointment too, but may need to wait outside until reception is empty
  • We’ll make a visual inspection of the vehicle & would ask you to maintain a distance of at least 2m from our team members during the inspection
  • One of the team will then produce an estimate or quote, and if you wish, you can take a paper copy away with you
  • If you prefer, we can scan & email a copy to you for your records
  • Should you wish to book your vehicle in to have the work carried out, we’re able to arrange a convenient date in the diary with a small deposit.
  • Unfortunately we no longer accept cash at the moment, but you can make payment by card on the day or bank transfer in advance for a completely touch-less transaction.

How exciting, it’s that time of year again. 

The new reg is here! (is it really 2017?)

So that fresh, new, shiny paintwork is going to get some beating from our British roads and Ace are here to save the day! 

Stone chips are the bane of many car owners lives, I know what it’s like when I come round to washing my car and I see the front bumper covered. 


After the mayhem ‘Storm Doris’ brought, I think it’s safe to say we’re all left a little shuck up… 

In memory of Doris we’d like to do a post dedicated to staying safe in those windy wet conditions…

  • Be Prepared – Plan Your Journey

Listen out for weather reports and news of any accidents or incidents & make sure you have full charge on your mobile incase you need to contact anyone. You can also use websites like the RAC to plan your route and take a more sheltered route option if there is one.

  • Take it slowwwwww

Ye it’s pretty damn obvious but the amount of people you see speeding past is very concerning when the roads are wet and the wind is high. Take it steady and keep your eyes further ahead to avoid any upcoming incidents and traffic to give you plenty of time to take action. 

  • Two Hands on the Wheel

You’ll have a lot more control over the steering wheel with two hands holding tight throughout the journey, don’t let distractions take you away from the control of the vehicle. 

  • Allow More Room 

Always leave plenty of room between you and the Vehicle in front, even more than usual if you can, as well as when you are overtaking cyclists and lorries; they are very vulnerable to being blown around in the wind. 

  • Clever Parking 

Finally, park away from any trees, buildings, telephone lines or any other structures that could be a potential hazard even other cars if that is possible to prevent any unforeseen accidents. 

If you have been affected by Storm Doris and you need a Quote for some paintwork damage, please come and visit us on the new Battlefield Enterprise Park on Vanguard way – we are situated right next door to Euro Car Parts.

“Had paint damage on my Toyota Celica repaired, quote was very reasonable and the work was done in only 2 days.
Had a scrape from a brick wall and a bad lacquer repair.

5 star work Extremely good customer service. Kept in touch with me and made me feel reassured that the repair would help the value of my car. Any problem contact and Im sure AceCar Care can help” – Daniel Furber 



Secret 1 – Using a High Gear

The best secret I’ve ever been given to getting great m.p.g figures is to be in the highest gear you can, driving the lowest speed. Every car is different, but learn to change up to the next gear as early as you can, without making the engine struggle.

Tip: Try using hills & gradients to your advantage, and change gear even earlier when driving down them.


Secret 2 – Gentle Throttle Foot

There are 2 elements to throttle control, the first being not to accelerate too hard, but gradually until you reach your desired speed and then back off.


It’s officially Winter and for many of us it means leaving the house 5 minutes earlier to de-ice the windows on our car, turning up the heating and moaning about it to everyone.

Well we want to make the Winter months easier for you motorists out there so here’s 8 simple Handy Tricks and Tips to get your Vehicle working more efficiently in this cold weather…

  • Air Con: Turning up your AC when you first get in the car could be the answer you’ve been looking for. The air conditioning unit helps to eliminate moisture from within the car keeping your cold glass, mist free.


  • Antifreeze – This really is your best friend during these colder months, make sure that your coolant tank is topped up.

Ace Car Care Vinyl Car Wrap Examples


BMW X5 Vehicle Wrapping – Matt Orange & Carbon Fibre Vinyl Car Wrap

The owner of this BMW wanted to change the look of his X5. Although it was a great colour, he had never really been ‘excited’ by it, and so came over to us at Ace Car Care to discuss vehicle wrapping.


Ace Car Care Ltd – New Name But Familiar Faces.

Well January 2014 has bought about some pretty major events for us here at Ace Car Car Ltd, and we thought that we’d better let you know just what’s going on, as some of our customers vising the Car Care Centre are a little confused as to just what’s happened and what’s not happening.
