"Excellent work carried out and very helpful staff."
"Dropped my car off at 9am for a full service. The guy at the desk was very helpful and said it would be ready in a few hours and said they’d phone me when it was. I hadn’t received a call by 2pm so I went in and my car was ready. Can’t complain as the guys were busy and a full garage is a sign that they’re popular and know what they’re doing, in my opinion at least."
"Been using this garage for a few years now ,Nothings any trouble."
"These guys make you feel welcome from start to finish, 10/10 Everyone in the local area need to know these guys are here...."

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.
