My go-to garage
"Wife's car needed MOT, service and brakes repairing. They came to pick it up. Actually passed it's MOT despite the brakes and didn't push me to have them repaired (although recommended). Sorted the brakes out quickly and had the car in and out again in less than a day. Great service."
"Very pleased with the service I received."
Great friendly service
"Great service, will definitely use again. Quick work done after my car unfortunately failed it’s MOT and good price. Very handy pick up and drop off service"
"Service was fantastic and Chris was very helpful! Even providing me with information on additional services"
"Bit of a mix up with collection service from home but my car is running better than ever. I would recommend a quick wash off before returning car would make this service complete"
MoT process efficient
"Vehicle's work booked online. Vehicle booked in on time, efficiently and politely. I was contacted when the vehicle was ready for collection. Efficient and trouble-free process with friendly staff."
Will be going back
"Had a rattling noise that turned out to be the heat shield which had rotted away on one side. Was seen the same day and repaired for free. Will be going back when my Mot is due."
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 can you save money (and the environment) while you drive?
As every garage owner will tell you, there are some tried and tested ways to cut down on your petrol costs (and consumption) while you’re out and about in Stockton-on-Tees or beyond. One is to shut your windows. If you can hear that wind noise in your car it’s costing you more to drive. This is because the car becomes less aerodynamic and has to work harder to motor along. Removing a roof rack will improve your fuel efficiency for the same reason. Another useful tip is to combine short trips into one; each time you drive after your car has been parked for a while the engine will be cold and need to use a lot more fuel for the first 5 miles or so. If you do one trip from school drop-off to supermarket to office you’ll use far less fuel than if you do all those trips individually.
