New Goodyear tyres fitted in Cottenham,Continental tyres fitted in Longstanton and a winter tyre swap on a Jaguar XF in Girton.

So far this week most of our jobs have been in the local area as our customers prepare for the cold snap that is predicted to come in the next few days. The first job of the week was to visit a regular customer living in Longstanton who required two new Continental Sport Contact 3 tyres size 205/50/R17 fitting to a Renault Megane. We then visited a new customer in Cottenham who had a blow out on a journey over the weekend and therefore had to fit the space saver tyre to the vehicle to get home. We arrived at their home at the agreed time and fitted a new Goodyear Efficient Grip tyre size 195/65/R15 to the rear axle. During our vehicle inspection procedure we noticed another tyre on the vehicle wab very low on air pressure and after investigation we found a small hole in the sidewall of the tyre and luckily we were able to source another tyre from a local supplier much to the relief of our customer. Next it was a visit to Girton to perform a winter tyre swap on a Jaguar XF vehicle.
 

New Nexen tyres fitted at the start of the new year and every customer so far is a repeat customer.

The first job of the new year was to fit a couple of new Nexen Blue tyres size 215/60/R16 to a Ford Galaxy in Great Shelford followed by replacing a Nexen Roadian tyre size 275/40/R20 on a VW 4X4 in Oakington.

Next it was off to Willingham to fit a new Nexen Blue tyre size 195/55/R15 to a Peugeot 206 due to a screw being embedded near the shoulder of a tyre. We have just fitted a new Michelin Primacy tyre size 225/50/R17 to an Audi A6 but need to return tomorrow as we have discovered a nail embedded in a rear tyre on the vehicle.

Every single customer we have visited this week is a repeat customer so it is pleasing to know that the service and advice we give to all our customers is of great benefit to them.
