Fast Response Nurse Tyre Fitting in Portishead!

The NHS is now under a huge amount of strain and we are trying to ensure the doctors and nurses in our local area can get to the hospitals and places of work on time. Recently we had a nurse call in looking for two new tyres on the front of her Fiesta as someone had slashed them! To slash tyres in this day in age is a very low stoop indeed.

The young lady called into the office and booked over the phone for as soon as possible. After moving Sergio's day around (our technician) we got the lady in for the next appointment slot.

After the tyre size was taken and a preferred brand selected, Sergio headed out to the home address and inspected the vehicle before proceeding. Thankfully for the customer, the rear tyres had not been touched and were in good shape. The tread depths and alignment were recorded and would be sent to the customer after the job had been completed.


With the inspection complete, the Fiesta was jacked up and placed on stands. Sergio then removed the two front wheels and placed them on the workbench in the van. The bead was broken, and the damaged tyres removed. A cursory inspection of the rim found slight corrosion on the bead. This was cleaned back and sealed using bead seal. If this had not been clean back, the customer may have experienced a slow leak after a few weeks.

From here, the new tyres were installed, inflated and balanced. Soon after, the freshly coated wheels were back on the car. Before lowing to the ground, the nuts were hand tightened to ensure they were seated on the hub correctly then the Fiesta was lowered to the floor and the nuts torqued to the correct setting (found in the owner's manual). A final inspection later and the nurse was ready to head out to help the public again!

As the lady wanted to keep our technician safe, she opted to pay over the internet. In most circumstances, we can take payment via our card machine (which is cleaned down before and after payment) but, we sent her an email where she could pay online!

A final wave and we headed out to help our next customer.

If you're looking at having a puncture repair, wheel alignment or even a TPMS valve replacement, why not give us a call on 0333 444 5454 or send an email to!
