MMC Coordinator Keith Cassidy said fully trained staff would be on hand to assist locals with a range of services.
“We won’t be hard to find – the Mobile Member Centre is a large semi-trailer decked out in RACQ’s blue and yellow livery,” Mr Cassidy said.
“These vehicle checks don’t replace regular car services, they’re an opportunity to check the condition of key components and to identify any visible problems or wear and tear.”
Mr Cassidy said the free vehicle health checks would include:
- External lights
- Horn, wipers and washers
- Dash warning lights
- Windscreen and mirrors
- Seatbelt operation and security
- Oil, water and coolant levels and visible external leaks from hoses or pipes
- Drive belt condition where visible
- Battery and charging system and battery security
- Condition of tyres and spare, tread wear and pressures.
“The MMC is also equipped with online systems to enable staff to handle membership and insurance inquiries on the spot,” he said.
The MMC was developed after Cyclone Larry hit north Queensland in 2006 and its main role was to respond to the needs of RACQ members during natural disasters.
