During booking you must clearly state in writing (WhatsApp or Email) the works that you require. Please do not add jobs required while work is in progress unless recommended by PRD that correction is needed. Small jobs may be considered – please do ask, don’t expect.

 Calendar bookings are not possible due to the nature of the works carried out by the business and the reliance of parts suppliers and other subcontractor availability.

Due to the nature of works, PRD does not work to set deadlines due to so many variables out of our control, such as third party and sub-contractor delays, holidays,  sickness or Lock downs, if you have a set deadline for works to be completed then, please contact us to see if it is plausible first.

Bookings are managed via a list system; when works are agreed you will be given an approximate time for that works are expected to begin, this can change due to delays/cancellations to works on other vehicles or other unexpected circumstances.

You will be given prior notice of when your vehicle is due to come into the workshop, you will need to bring you’re vehicle to the workshop within 3 days of the date we have agreed to.

If the engine requires mapping/tuning, then it must be done by our trusted and chosen Tuning company, if you have a preferred or dislike of our chosen company or location, given PRD notice, we will certainly consider changing it.

If the vehicle is moved/returned for any reason before mapping has taken place, warranty will be become void if engine is started or vehicle driven, we remain the right to disable the engine if necessary, when the trust with the customer, terms and conditions, disputes or complaints are in process/breached

You are responsible to check for oil and coolant levels, fluid leaks before and after use. If you require any help to ensure this is done correctly then please ask.


Rebuilt engines will be using special running in oil, this isn’t technically the same as standard oil so it’s the utmost importance the following procedures are adhered too.

The running in procedure applies to the first 500 miles, following this protects against any issues and will retain validity of your warranty. This is our way to optimise and increase the longevity/performance of the engine/vehicle and your driving experiences.

PRD will not be held ACCOUNTABLE for any damage incurred due to failure to adhere to the running in procedure or terms and conditions breached, Please ask if you require further explanation or help.

If you feel uncomfortable or overwhelmed with this process then we are more than happy to provide this service, we encourage it.


We ask that you read and understand the following points:


1D. To provide the optimum running in conditions, the engine must go through several heat cycles. The engine should be run for approximately 30 mins at a time, slowly increasing running time by 30 mins with each cycle and allowing 24 hours cool down in-between runs. This heat cycle is basically an hardening process of necessary materials

2D. The revs must be kept under 4000 rpm, do not leave the vehicle idling, unattended and avoid heavy traffic and peak times. Heavy acceleration and deceleration is recommended within this rev limit.

3D. We recommend using the vehicle in your local area only, until you gain confidence before undertaking longer journeys. If there are any unusual sounds, smells, vibrations, performance issues or warning lights, stop the vehicle immediately and do not restart until you have contacted PRD for advice, if we can not be reached you must recover the vehicle either directly to us or your home.

4D. If the vehicle needs to be looked over by PRD it is your responsibility to return it to the workshop, we can and will assist if necessary. 

5D. Under no circumstances must the vehicle/engine be tampered, modified, serviced or removed by any third party, whether its your self, local garage or breakdown services, unless given permission from PRD FIRST, this is to protect PRD from any foul play.

6D. Any failure of parts is likely to require replacement under supplier warranty. Procedures will be different for each supplier. Please note that in some circumstances payment for parts may need to be made whilst waiting for confirmation of warranty cover, however, replacements will usually be done within warranty.

7D. Any parts supplied by you will remain your responsibility to liaise with the supplier for claims. If there are any issues with this PRD will support where possible.

8D. Any failure of parts or services due to poor workmanship will be replaced in full.
