Always had good , VFM experiences with Halfords . I suppose , like all in this field (Kwikfit , Formula1 etc) , it depends on the particular outlet .
With the posible exception of the battery, these are all checks that any driver should be doing at home on a regular basis. Any decent garage will do a free check of your battery for you.

My local Kwik fit do free winter check, I just found it online as well - kwik-fit.com/fre…eck

What is included within our free winter safety check?


To keep you moving this winter we’ll check your car's:

  • Tyres - We will check the overall condition of your tyres including the tread depth and pressure
  • Battery – We will test the batteries charge to ensure you keep moving this winter
  • Coolant / Anti-freeze – We will check the strength and levels
  • Wiper blades for splits or damage
  • Operation of the windscreen wash system and the level of screen wash and top this up if necessary
  • Light bulbs – faulty or broken bulbs are illegal
  • TPMS – inspected to ensure correct operation
If you can’t check those things yourself you shouldn’t be driving
Indeed and they will try and get you to pay for work that does not need doing nothing but a money grab sorry op
Sorry but these 'offers' are a complete waste of time and just a way to get people into their premises and flog them various stuff. You can check almost all of those things on the list in under a minute yourself. The only one you may have some difficulty checking would be your battery, however I've never needed to have my battery "checked". And most cars will tell you what your oil levels are and whether you have any bulbs out via the onboard computer even if you can't do it via the dipstick.
Strange thing is they can't even do the made up work they recommend properly.
Is this a joke?

I had to show them how to fit wiper blades on this old dears car the other week. She had paid him to do it, I was a passer by that eventually did the work. Shockingly, he went to walk off! I said unless you bring the £4 back she shelled out to get them fitted, you’ll stay right there.
Used to love when kwik fit did this offer in my local city centre,free parking whilst I went and did my Xmas shopping....get back to the car listen to what crap they come out with then tell them I’ll have a think about it and drive off smugly in the knowledge I’ve had free parking all day
