"Happy with work and only took a morning - would use garage again"
"Quick response to online booking. Friendly. Helpful."
Fast & friendly
"Friendly, efficient establishment. Glad there are still garages like this around. Highly recommended."
Would use again
"Found on CheckATrade due to the positive reviews and I was very happy I chose Shergold. Family run, pleasant staff, excellent value. As a young female with little mechanical knowledge it is important to me that garage staff explain work/repairs clearly without being patronising, which I felt this garage met. I will use Shergold again in future and recommend them."
"Really great service, very helpful and friendly throughout."
Always great service
"Taken 3 cars for servicing, always get excellent service and transparent billing."

"I'm very happy with service. Original parts were used and quickly finished. Complementary car been given, old and dirty Micra which need a little bit of clean. Highly recommended."
"Very happy with service, great staff, not expensive"
"Very happy I chose Mikes Motor . Excellent service and very polite and prompt."
Would highly recommend
"This Company did exactly what they said they would. I selected the date and they delivered on the date that i requested (you would be surprised how many have not done this before). They made the whole process easy by collecting my car at the time they said they would and delivering it back speedily. They kept me informed before and during of what would be happening. If i was to make just one small recommendation it would be to bring the car back with a little valet as this is what some of the bigger chains do and it is a nice touch. I would definitely come back to you though."
"No problems very accommodating regarding timescales. Had a call a few days before as a reminder."
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.
