At Queens Park Garage, we take care of a lot of different makes of car and offer a wide range of support including MOTs, servicing and repairs. One area that our customers often don’t think so much about is wheel alignment.

Here we take a closer look at what this is and how it can have a number of benefits if you want to maintain your car properly and improve things like fuel economy.

It’s that time of year again where people eat, drink and be scary. You are likely to see an increase in bodies on the streets - running around in spooky costumes, high on sugar and being purposefully a-boo-sive to passersby… (though on this one night of the year it seems to be perfectly socially acceptable). Halloween can be fun for some and ghastly for others.
