Absolutely great service
"They fit me in even though there was a bit of a hiccup with the booking"
Friendly & helpful staff
"I originally booked my service & MOT online but then I received a call from the garage who informed me that the MOT slot wasnt available and gave me a new slot. The service was completed in good time but unfortunately it failed the MOT. I quickly had the work done and returned to the garage the following day and they did another MOT straight away so i was back on the road. All staff are very friendly, polite and helpful. I would definitely recommend this garage!"
Short notice MOT
"Spot on! More than happy with the service; booked in for MOT online, got a call back to confirm booking a couple of days later. MOT completed in around an hour while I waited. No unnecessary work carried out. Just a great value, professional service all around."
"I had my first service and mot with faraday mill this week. I was very impressed with the service I received and I found it very useful they could pick up and drop off for free! I was called by the garage half way through the process to be reassured my mot had passed and I felt the staff were so friendly. I will definitely be returning next year. Thankyou!"
"Very helpful and great value for money."
"After using Marshalls garage before I booked my MOT there as I was so pleased with the service that I had the last time. It is easy to book and they do what they say they’re going to do in the time that it is booked in. I can’t fault them at all and I will always go back there when I need something doing to my car. Many thanks your helpfulness and professionalism is much appreciated ."
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?
We all have different needs, and choosing a garage is no different. For some of us, it’s the quality of the overall service which matters most; not just the work that’s done under the bonnet, but the human interaction that comes with it. BookMyGarage allows you to compare Plymouth garages on everything from their waiting room refreshments or whether having your toddler in tow is going to be a problem, to how clearly the staff can explain the work your car requires.
