Locking Wheel Nut Removal
Before leaving for your holiday check that you have your locking wheel nut adaptor in your vehicle as some of my recent customers have either lost them or left them in the house. The wheel cannot be removed without it so if it is lost give us a call and we will use our equipment to remove bolts so you can replace them.
Spring is here!
My last blog suggested that the winter had possibly not finished but today as the sun beats down again i am confident we can all look forward to sunnier days. If you had winter tyres fitted give us a call and we will come to you and fit your summer tyres to your vehicle.
Top Tips for Winter Driving
Winter it seems is not yet over if you believe the recent weather forecasts so this is good time to remind you all to do a few simple checks to avoid any nasty surprises and which can also save you fuel consumption, so a double whammy !. Three simple checks I recommend to all my customers are : 1)Have a useable spare tyre 2)Keep tyres correctly inflated ( helps with fuel consumption) 3)Avoid Pot holes!- If you are unfortunate to hit a pot hole please check your wheel rims for any damage, as I have been called out recently to what seems to be a puncture when it is in fact a damaged wheel rim causing the tyres to become ill fitting and as such leak air.
Hopefully the Winter blast will be short lived but in the mean time be safe.
Helping the Barmy Army
A regular customer of mine is in Sydney at the moment hopefully witnessing an historic ashes series win but his parents had noticed a nail in his tyre.I have ordered new tyre and i am fitting tomorrow as he is flying back sunday evening and starting work on monday morning. A job well done i say (that's me and England!)
A very Happy Customer
Last week i had a call from a lady who had hit a kerb in Bar Hill and had to leave the car overnight as the tyre had been pushed off the rim.I phoned her to arrange a time to meet at the location and she informed me that she was waiting at the local bus stop probably waiting for a bus that was not going to arrive due to the bad weather. As i was very near to her i told her to hold on for a few minutes more and i would collect her on route and her exact words were 'What a wonderful service'
