"Friendly, honest, helpful. First time I have serviced my car outside of main dealer and I was nervous! MTS were great, will definitely be back for my MOT and future services for my Nissan 370Z"
Very good service
"Used this garage as very conveniently on the same industrial estate as my job but I would happily use them again anyway even if I moved jobs."
"I have used many garages over the years for servicing and MOT - I spotted this garage online and received a quotation and confirmation of my booking. The price quoted was amazing I admit I was a little dubious. However on arrival I was met by Manda who talked me through the schedule and all the work that would be carried out. I was not disappointed with the outcome and the final bill was less than the original quote. I will be booking again next year for the MOT and service thank you Michael Doherty"
"Really great service, very helpful and friendly throughout."
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 Poole 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.
