SLSHOPS: Health Check Full

To help you get the best out of your SL, we must first get to know the car.

Our health check is a comprehensive 300 point status survey for your car, not just limited to mechanical components but also interior fittings and trim. This health check is structured like an MOT but in much more detail, performed in our service bay, on the ramps and out on the open road, where the car will be driven by experts with real experience of how it should be performing.

Once the check is complete you’ll sit down with Bruce Greetham to discuss the findings, go over the observations and make a forward plan to take the next steps in your classic Mercedes-Benz experience.

A health check is perfect for customers who have recently purchased an SL, or long term custodians beginning to think about a restoration. Contact us to book your health check now.


Why do I need it?

Our Health Check is about more than just the condition of your car. The consultancy that follows the inspection is a chance to scrutinise your plans for the car, to determine what areas to address first and to lean on our knowledge to make an informed decision. Once the report is complete you’ll sit down with one of our experts to discuss the car, the findings and the best course of action in the current market climate.

It is this part of the Health Check that customers find the most useful, an unbiased and honest appraisal of the car; and a chance for you to discuss your relationship with your SL. Many fine restorations have started with a Health Check, but we’ve also saved customers from investing money in the wrong areas or in the wrong car entirely.

What does it do for the car?

After a health check your car will have a complete picture of what is required to turn it into a car that meets the SLSHOP grade. Whether you intend to show the car, enjoy the car or sell the car, after the consultancy you will be in the best possible position to make an informed decision on what to do next with your SL.

What does it do for me?

A Health Check is more than just a status report, it’s a chance for you to really examine your car and your future plans. It gives reassurance for you and the car, an opportunity to discuss your intended direction with an impartial expert. For customers who have recently acquired an SL, whether as part of an inheritance, from an auction or from any other source, it’s a great opportunity to really understand exactly what is sitting in your garage. Our consultancy platform provides a structured approach for the next steps in your SL journey. Many fine restorations have started with a Health Check, but we’ve also saved customers from investing money in the wrong areas or in the wrong car entirely.
