"The customer service offered is excellent. The garage can and picked my car up from work then dropped it off on completion. They were also able to take card payment on handing the car back at my workplace. So much easier than arranging time off. I was concerned about the service not covering the manufacturers warranty but they allayed my fears with respect to this giving assurances. The price was excellent, approx. £60 cheaper than the ford garage for the same service. Staff were all polite and informative. Definitely will use them again."
"The service was quick and efficient, work was completed within the day. It super helpful being able to drop the car off first thing before work. I was running late to collect the car and Kenny was really understanding about it. Really good service, definitely recommend."

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.
Edinburgh deserves its reputation as one of the most striking and compelling cities in the world. It’s an ancient place steeped in history but is also a modern, dynamic capital. It hosts one of the most famous cultural festivals in the world, as well as cutting-edge art, captivating bars and great restaurants. It radiates an animated, chic ambience with a distinctly Scottish twist.
