"Friendly staff excellent customer service and good value for money"
Great customer service
"Excellent customer service. Staff were very helpful"
"This is my third visit to this garage and I have been impressed by their service and attentiveness to customers. I had a very minor niggle following the oil change which was addressed immediately with no quibbles, just a friendly, courteous and professional customer service. Following the service I asked if the garage would kindly investigate a further issue identified following an earlier MOT elsewhere. They were happy to do so without charge and produced a video healthcheck of my vehicle. The garage doesn't allow customers into the workshop and beneath vehicles on ramps (understandable due to H&S...) but will produce a video highlighting any faults which I found invaluable. I will return with confidence and recommend without hesitation. Thank you to this 'Secret Service' garage from a happy customer."

Wheels and tyres, as with any rotating object, need to be balanced in order to reduce vibration. A good example of this is when laundry is loaded into a washing machine unevenly, the drum is not correctly balanced, so vibrates. Similarly, wheel balancing ensures that the weight of the wheel and tyre is even around the axle.
You should always have your wheels balanced whenever you have new tyres fitted. Car tyres which are fitted on wheels that have not been properly balanced will wear very quickly and unevenly. This is due to the inconsistent points of friction between the tyre and the road, creating an effect like rubbing sandpaper on the tyre aggressively. Losing grip this way could be very dangerous and the vibration also makes the car’s ride very uncomfortable, possibly to a point of distraction that might lead to an accident.
Wheels are typically removed from a car before their balance is checked. They are placed in a specially-designed machine and spun to measure the vibration. Small offsetting weights are placed at points on the rim of the wheel based on results from the balancing machine. This is repeated until the machine reports that the wheel is balanced.
Citroën is a major French automobile manufacturer, and has been part of the PSA Peugeot Citroen group since 1976. Founded in 1919 by French industrialist André-Gustave Citroën, within eight years Citroën had become Europe’s largest car manufacturer and the 4th largest in the world.
Citroën also produced Europe’s first completely steel-bodied car, all the way back in 1924. Ten years later, Citroën introduced further innovation to the world of automobiles with the Traction Avant, the world's first mass-produced front wheel drive car, and also one of the first cars with no chassis frame holding the mechanical components.
In the following years, Citroën produced the world’s first hydropneumatic self-levelling suspension system, the first mass production car with disc brakes, and swiveling headlights in cars, which allow for greater visibility on the road. You can say they are good at innovation!
