"Totaly happy from start to finish will definitely use them again"
"Happy with the work"
"Easy to book online, great service as always, no hassle stress free job done"
"We chose the garage as it’s a hybrid specialist. The fact that servicing can be booked online and paid for over the phone and the car can be picked up and dropped off made life very simple. It would’ve been difficult to get to the garage twice on a working day and these services solved the problem. The work was done to a high standard and the service was excellent."
"Friendly and helpful will use again"
"I used bookmygarage on a Sunday evening, the garage called me on Monday morning to book me in officially. I was able to drop my car off first thing and was informed of the timescale and when to expect the results of the test. The staff at the garage were very kind whilst telling me the faults with the car which I really appreciated. Seem a very honest bunch, would really recommend!"

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?
This might sound like a question with an obvious answer: you need a garage that can service or repair your car quickly and at a good price. But think again and you may realise there are other factors that affect your choice of garage in Preston. If you need to bring your son or daughter with you when you take your car in, are there toys in the waiting room? If you’re dropping the car off between school and work, can you pick up a cup of coffee while you’re there? Might the garage even collect your car and drop it back at your house after the work is done? You can find answers to all these questions on BookMyGarage.
