What is wheel alignment and why does my car need it?

Wheel alignment is the process of checking that your car’s wheels are set to the correct position and aligned properly to the manufacturers specifications. It is an essential part of looking after your vehicle, it will improve the handling, comfort and safety of your car as well as reducing tyre wear and increasing fuel efficiency.

Really impressed with the friendly and professional service - I was kept fully informed by them at all times - would definitely recommend.

When we perform a wheel alignment check we will give you a print out to show and explain any adjustments that may be required. We will then correct your car’s steering and suspension settings in accordance with the original manufacture’s specifications and retest your car once the work is done. You will then get a second print out so you can see the difference.

Using our state of the art HUNTER HawkEye Elite™ laser wheel alignment system we can check the full geometry of your vehicle and, as part of the full alignment check, we can also do a suspension system inspection which will help to highlight any worn or damaged parts before they cause a more costly problem.

If your car has an MOT with us you will be eligible for a free wheel alignment check. We can then quote you for any adjustments that need to be made and you can decide if you would like to proceed. Just tell us if you would like to take advantage of this offer when you book your car in. If your car has a service with us this is part of our standard service package.
