"Have previously had tyres replaced with monarch and always had good service, decided to try them for my car service. Was able to arrange pickup and drop off and all staff friendly and helpful. Service carried out at a good price, pretty much my go to garage for all my car work now, 5*****"
"Had an mot, full service, light repair, wheel replacement & headlights adjustment. Friendly service, kept me updated and explained everything they were doing. Really helpful to have the courtesy car as well, would have been so difficult to get to work otherwise! Only fault was that when I picked my car up, after service but before repairs were completed, as I was driving the panel underneath the car fell off and had to festive back to garage with it hanging down! To be fair to the garage everything on my car is quite rusty and they fixed it straight away no problem! Gino also glued my gear stick knob back on as a favour which was lovely!"

"I dropped my car off at the garage, which is easy to find and local to city centre (20 min walk). I received a call in the afternoon to notify me of recommended work on my car. I was quoted the price of parts and labour, but was not pressured into having the work done there and then, which I greatly appreciate. I was then called back once my service was complete. I arrived at the garage, where my car was waiting out front. The customer service was friendly and polite from the guys that I dealt with. I made payment, received all my paperwork and service book and drove away. I will recommend Auto Nation and will be sure to use this place again. Thank you."
"Good garage decent price"
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.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Peterborough or further afield, think about road user etiquette. Showing respect for other road users makes driving more pleasant for you and safer for everyone. For example, if you have to make a last minute change of lane, make your request to change clear to the driver who will need to let you in - and signal your thanks if they do. Be ready to abandon the change of lane if they won’t play ball - your safety (and that of other drivers and pedestrians) is more important than getting to your destination in the shortest time possible. When the position is reversed and a driver asks your permission to change lanes, allow them to as long as it is safe. If you get frustrated, avoid using your horn - it won’t improve matters and might make them considerably worse.
