"Easy and polite service and very quick"
"Really helpful and friendly. Rearranged appointment for following day after I was unable to get to them on the arranged day or let them know until late afternoon. Quality of work and value is only 3 stars because i can’t honestly rate these when it’s only been 1 day and just over 1 mile of driving since work was done. I never give 5 stars in reviews. 5 is reserved for perfection."
"Happy with the work."
"Very happy with their service"
Good Honest Garage
"Was kept updated every single step of the way in regard to getting my car through its MOT. The fault diagnosis could easily have been something very expensive if in the hands of other dishonest places. Will always recommend - been using Sovereign for three years now and will never hesitate to go back."
Trustworthy and helpful
"I asked for advice on a rumbling noise and the answer came back it was possibly due to the rear tyres being unevenly worn.Changed the tyres and noise now gone."
Job well done
"Good job, done quickly, nice staff. I'd definitely go back each year for service and MOT."
"Not happy with bookmygarage as When I called garage they advised me that nothing was shown booked online and this could have cost me a wasted trip had I not called them first."
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.
What do you need from your garage?
You may live within walking distance of a garage which offers most of the services you need. However, by sticking with the nearest garage in Croydon you could be missing out on a better deal.
