"Great service, really awkward car problem due to being a hybrid. They lent us a car so we didn't have to struggle on the school run. Work was completed quickly and to a great standard."
"They got on with the job and I had my car back after only a couple of hours. The gentleman was very polite"
"Happy with collection, work and the return of my car. Excellent throughout the process."
"Unity kept me up to date at all times and I was well informed about the cost of the work. They also picked up and dropped off my car."
"Quick , helpful and always easy to contact , will 100% use again imfor future mots"
"Really pleased with the garage. I was sceptical to start with having a Vauxhall and it being a Vauxhall dealership, that there would be ‘hidden’ extras or they’d try to find fault with the car. However no hidden catches, great service and really friendly guys. Thanks!"
"Took my car for its annual MOT. All the guys there were very friendly and sociable. The MOT was completed quickly and even supplied coffee and biscuits whilst I waited in reception. The MOT cost was also very competitive and easy to book a time slot online."

All very satisfactory

"Yes, very happy with the service. Excellent!"
"Booked full service online, was called to confirm date and time. Service completed and ready at time requested."
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.
Driving in the East Midlands
From Lincoln’s winding streets and glorious medieval cathedral, to legendary Sherwood Forest and the natural drama of the Peaks, the East Midlands is a varied region. 88% of the land is rural, though the major cities of Nottingham, Leicester and Derby mean that the population stands at around 4.5 million. The geographical centre of England lies in Higham on the Hill in west Leicestershire, close to the boundary between the East and West Midlands.
