Very positive experience
"Very competitive price, and I liked the fact that a lift to or from home was offered online as part of the deal, though I did not use this service. Service light reset, service book updated. Just one small point: Total bill, as per website, simply stated total amount as being labour, whereas it would have been helpful to note on invoice that oil, filter etc had been replaced, even though this was ticked on service booklet."
Couldn't fault them
"No issues with our service and mot. Car needed a new tyre which they sourced and advised price prior. Happy with service."
"Very Happy with service, kept informed about work needed. Great garage will definitely use again."
"Great book online service which helps you decide whats best for you. Garage kept me updated on what was happening with the car and car all cleaned and ready to go on pick up. Would highly recommend.(female driver)"
"I would usually take my car to my local Arnold Clark for its service and MOT to a freelance mechanic in Braehead. This year I thought to use Drivers Autocentre on Firpark Street as I was quoted a good price online. They also provide a lift service and car loan which I took so that I could get about and not having to wait. My car has a problem of not passing the emissions test when it comes to the MOT. However, not only did it passed its emissions test and MOT I also saved a few hundred £'s if I had to take it to the mechanic in Braehead. Drivers Autocentre informed me by phone if any extra work was needed to be done and when my car was ready to be collected. Very good price and excellent service. I now know where to go for my car mechanical needs from now on."
"The mechanics here undertook a custom welding repair of my (very old) exhaust replacing the bad bits but keeping the DPF and CAT. Had some issues along the way but cost was not passed on to me and they even cleaned my DPF and forced a regen when it was clear that the reassembled exhaust had un-diagnosed DPF blockage - again at no extra cost. Would wholeheartedly recommend these guys for their pride in their work and their competence. Jamie, the shop manager couldn't have been more helpful in terms of his his initial advice and his feedback on later exhaust/DPF issues. Will use again."
"I dropped the car off at 9am and work was done within 2 hours. Excellent customer service."
"As usual always happy with anything I get done at bb autos the staff are great Brian as always very helpful can't do enough for his customers. Service with a smile as usual boys"
"Fast and friendly. Great local business."
Hassle free service

"Very happy with the work and would recommend this garage"
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.
