"Very happy with service I received will def go back"
"The guys at The Garage are all very friendly, gave me advice on what needed doing and how much it was likely to cost - really nice guys"
"I needed some work done on my car as well as a regular MOT and service, the main dealer would have been a fortune, not only were the team here friendly and sorted everything but the value was great."
Good Value but irritating
"Service and MOT completed without incident and drama and by booking online was hassle free. Minor grumbles: 1. Received a text message the night before asking when I would be dropping off the car? Not really an issue but an irritation nevertheless 2. On dropping off & booking in attempts were made to sell me additional services. Very gentle and certainly non threatening but irritating 3. The cars were dropped off at 08:15 and I had to ring for a progress report at 16:00. I was give a time that the car would be ready and I turned up at the stated time. On both occassions the car was not ready and I was asked to wait for work to be be completed. Very irritating Will probably use the garage again in the hope that the experience will be better next time"
I trust this garage
"The MOT was prompt and efficient. The online booking is a bonus."
Any rotating object has to be balanced in order to reduce vibration and optimise its performance. We're all familiar with the vibration caused by an unevenly loaded washing machine drum; that's what your car tyres have to endure if the wheels have not been properly balanced. As a tyre wears, its balance may change slightly. And when you have new car tyres fitted, you will definitely need to have your wheels balanced.
If your car has a wheel that is out of balance, you will probably notice it most at speed. Often you will find there is a particular speed where this is most noticeable, and you’ll feel it through your steering wheel.
Your garage will usually take the wheel off the car to check its balance. They put the wheel in a machine that spins the it, and measures the vibration. The mechanic adds small weights to the rim of the wheel - the balancing machine tells him where to attach them - and the mechanic repeats the test until the wheel is satisfactorily balanced.
Smart Automobile is a company headquartered in Böblingen, Germany, that has marketed a range of microcar and subcompact vehicles. Marketed in 46 countries across Asia, North and South America, Africa, Australia and Europe, the design concept for the company's automobiles was first developed at Mercedes in the early 1970s and in the late 1980s. It was quite a lengthy gestation period, and the first model was finally launched by Daimler-Benz in 1998. Several variants on the original design have been introduced, with the original two-seater (called the Fortwo) now in its third generation and the Smart now being available as a fully electric offering.
The brand name Smart derives from its early cooperative studies with Swatch and Mercedes: Swatch Mercedes ART - although we have to say, it does make it a bit difficult to search online with a name like that! Overall, it is a very specialised company that builds ultra-compact cars, designed to carry up to four passengers through congested city streets with ease.
