"Friendly staff, great service and good advice about another problem that I needed to be aware of."
"They made everything very simple. I was able to drop my car off the night before and pick it up the next evening. They called me to tell me when everything was done and if anything needed to be done. I called up to ask if I could pay over the phone and they were very helpful. Overall excellent service and I would definitely use this garage again."

"Good value for money"
"Very old car, a dishonest garage could have easily said there was way more work needing doing than in reality. However, these guys were amazing. They ran me through loads of recommendations and were not pushy for me to spend money where it wasn't needed (as was getting rid of the car over the next year)."
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.
Located around the shores of the River Avon and the Severn Estuary, Bristol is a culturally diverse, socially abuzz, alternative and independent city. Small wonder that in 2014 The Times named it the best city in the UK to live. It’s also one of the sunniest.
Bristol is famous for Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge, which is well worth a visit if you don’t happen to drive across it on your way into the city. There is a small toll on this Grade I listed structure which forms part of the B3129. But if you suffer from vertigo don’t look down, the deep drop to the River Avon and Gorge is spectacular and changes with the tide.
