Great customer service
"Really helpful staff and kept me updated throughout"
"After a service on my car I was made aware of some issues that needed to be fixed that should have cost a fortune but at GC the prices were very reasonable and pleasantly surprising. Whilst releases were done they always kept me in the loop and instead of just declaring that new parts had to be going in the my took the time to do extra checks to make sure they were needed and not just to make money off me which was refreshing because from experience that doesn’t always happen. Great value for money and the most helpful, honest and pleasant staff"

good work A*
"quick, efficient, good work"
"I brought my car here after a different garage carried out an MOT and quoted me £650 for repairs. I booked a second MOT as well as an interim service ,the staff at the garage were very helpful and said they would give me a call back with a quote. Within 2hrs they called with a quote of just £60 for repairs as the first garage had tried to massively overcharge me. After another 2hrs it was ready to collect and they had even cleaned the car! I couldn't fault the garage at all and would definitely recommend them!"
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?
This might sound like a question with an obvious answer: you need a garage that can service or repair your car quickly and at a good price. But think again and you may realise there are other factors that affect your choice of garage in Gateshead. If you need to bring your son or daughter with you when you take your car in, are there toys in the waiting room? If you’re dropping the car off between school and work, can you pick up a cup of coffee while you’re there? Might the garage even collect your car and drop it back at your house after the work is done? You can find answers to all these questions on BookMyGarage.
