"They got on with the job and I had my car back after only a couple of hours. The gentleman was very polite"
"Happy with collection, work and the return of my car. Excellent throughout the process."
"Unity kept me up to date at all times and I was well informed about the cost of the work. They also picked up and dropped off my car."
"Having never used this service, and having arranged a collection and drop off I really wasn't sure what to expect; however, I have been pleasantly surprised with the service. The only negative is the price advertised on bookmygarage for the mot was incorrect, which the garage called me and informed me of straight away and had said they had asked bookmygarage to change it."
Great Secret Service
"Friendly, polite customer service form first point of contact. I used the car collection & delivery option and again excellent customer service - my car was collected and returned on times agreed, all the service paperwork was completed allowing me to review all the checks/work undertaken. The cost of the service was very competitive."
"good price good work carried out can't fault them."
Good at referring
"Booked MOT online. But they don't actually do MOTs. But they did refer me to a great garage which did it for 30 quid."
Fast and Good Value
"Overall pretty pleased; but did not pick up that the horn wasn't working and didn't check rear wiper as requested."
Can’t fault it
"Great, very happy, the only problem is that with all my other cars I got a report back detailing all the items checked and whether they needed attention sooner rather than later. With this service all I got was an itemised invoice for parts and labour. No idea what was checked, what might need attention or anything."
Great all round
"Brilliant gd staff could not do more"
"Very helpful staff , great service"
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.
Sitting on the edge of the National Forest and upon the River Soar, Leicester is a culturally diverse, historically rich city that hosts some fantastic festivals, award-winning visitor museums, stately homes and exciting world food eateries.
