As you can probably tell from the subject line, I’m finally entering the 21st century and have invested in a portable card machine!

Having considered ways to improve my services to you, one of the first things that sprang to mind was the need to embrace technology on the payment front.

Paying by cash or cheque hasn’t been too much of a problem for the most part. However, in a day and age where time is precious and the convenience factor is important, I realise that it can be a little inconvenient to take a trip to the cash point or hunt around for the cheque book prior to your appointment.

The card machine will make payments easier or more convenient for you so it was a no-brainer to get one. Speaking of which, it has now arrived and will be available to use from after the long Easter bank holiday weekend onwards.

Due to incurring a fee per transaction this will mean an extra pound will need to be charged if paying by card but the cash or cheque option is still there if you’d prefer it.

In The Pipeline

For the benefit of the periodic body maintenance / MOT style patient, I will be rolling out a loyalty scheme in due course so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for updates on this in the next few weeks.

In the meantime, have an egg-cellent Easter!
