“The Iceman Cometh!” I screamed whilst watching the feature length Countryfile weather report; much to my mothers and her three Yorkshire Terriers surprise.
“Are you referring to the Eugene O’Neill tragedy of 1939 where the main protagonist Theodore Hickey attempts to convert his barfly buddies into sobering up and changing their perceptions on their every increasingly unlikely pipedreams? A play which was later adapted as a West End and Broadway show by a much lauded Kevin Spacey in the late 90’s?” she said.
“No”, I said deflated; still standing, arms outstretched. “It’s gonna be a bit chilly next week”
“Happens every year, I don’t know why your still surprised?” she said
That did make me think actually. Why am I still surprised when the nights draw in, the temperature drops and I have to chisel my car out of a block of ice every morning? Its winter, that’s what happens.
But as usual, I follow the same routine year on year.
Trying to organise a bbq in September, clinging on to the last drop of summer wearing shorts and tshirts in October, right up to the point where I can’t feel my toes and start to get hyperthermia.
I’ve noticed the same thing with our customers. We have had a huge amount of calls and customers popping in over the last few weeks to organise habitations and winter drain down services before they hibernate their motorhomes until next season.
So we have decided to offer our “Winterisation Services”, namely habitation, engine and drain down services at SPECIAL DISCOUNTED RATES in preparation for the cold months ahead. Hopefully in that way, when you are ready to get the vehicle back on the road next year you won’t have any nasty surprises.
Please call our customer service team on 01782 333422 for more information or to book your vehicle in before the big freeze!
