"First time using Colins MOT and Service Centre and would definitely use them again. Very reasonably price and experienced mechanics."
Really great service
"Staff were very friendly. They also had me fitted in the next day after phoning & was done very fast too"
"Very happy with the service and my car was completed a bit earlier than I expected. No complaints whatsoever and the staff were very friendly."
Great customer service
"I put my car into John Mcinnes for an MOT. Unfortunately an issue with my bonnet lock reared it’s head and the MOT couldn’t be completed. After attempting to get in myself, I returned it to the garage where they got in and carried out the MOT, without charging for the extra time spent trying to get around this particular issue. I was kept well informed of the situation and the staff were more than helpful. Would highly recommend."
"Very good garage use all the time."
"Was great. Picked up and dropped off my car at the office."
Helpful local garage
"Honest and upfront garage. Kept me informed and phoned/text throughout the day. In no way did I feel pressured to get additional work to fix advisories. I did choose to get this done though because it was a fair price. Would recommend."
"Very happy with the service"
"Booking was easy online. Reminder email came through. Asked for the car back before 1pm and I received a text at 1100 so say work was complete. Very efficient"
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.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Aberdeen or further afield, think about road user etiquette. Showing respect for other road users makes driving more pleasant for you and safer for everyone. For example, if you have to make a last minute change of lane, make your request to change clear to the driver who will need to let you in - and signal your thanks if they do. Be ready to abandon the change of lane if they won’t play ball - your safety (and that of other drivers and pedestrians) is more important than getting to your destination in the shortest time possible. When the position is reversed and a driver asks your permission to change lanes, allow them to as long as it is safe. If you get frustrated, avoid using your horn - it won’t improve matters and might make them considerably worse.
