“I’m always on the go, so booking my MOT on my phone was really useful.
I compared garages, picked the best one for me and even saved money, all whilst waiting for my morning coffee!”
“Quick hassle free quality and value for money”
“Paid for a major service, which includes all the relevant filters changing, paid £223. Dropped the car off at 0900 and picked it up at 13:30. When I picked the car up I was told the Air and fuel filter in my car was not changed, why? I don’t know because I was not offered a reduction on price for something I’m going to have to do myself.I wouldn’t care as the filters cost £20 together. I use many garages as I’m up and down the UK and this was by far the worst. No service printout ether”
“Before we discovered Mini Planet Garage we never had a reliable resource to help us with our vehicle issues. Now, whenever we have a problem we just call hem and they come to us. They're quick & have fair pricing.”
Wheel alignment is all about the angle of the wheels in relation to the chassis. It keeps your car pointing in the right direction and driving straight. It also helps coordinate the tyres, lining them up accurately with the road surface, and spreads the weight of the car evenly. This gives you a smooth, balanced drive.
You may experience problems when you drive over speedbumps too fast, hit a pothole or kerb or are involved in a minor accident. If you suspect that you have an issue with your wheel alignment, you need to book a wheel alignment appointment at a local garage as soon as possible.
How can you save money (and the environment) while you drive?
As every garage owner will tell you, there are some tried and tested ways to cut down on your petrol costs (and consumption) while you’re out and about in Ripon or beyond. One is to shut your windows. If you can hear that wind noise in your car it’s costing you more to drive. This is because the car becomes less aerodynamic and has to work harder to motor along. Removing a roof rack will improve your fuel efficiency for the same reason. Another useful tip is to combine short trips into one; each time you drive after your car has been parked for a while the engine will be cold and need to use a lot more fuel for the first 5 miles or so. If you do one trip from school drop-off to supermarket to office you’ll use far less fuel than if you do all those trips individually.
