There is a range of services that we offer for the upkeep of your car’s tyres, but when drivers think of tyres, the first thought is probably the dreaded puncture. If you’ve driven for long enough, chances are you’ve had a puncture at some point, and if you haven’t…lucky you!
Unfortunately, most punctures will require a whole new tyre, but if it’s possible to safely repair your existing tyre, then that’s what our mechanics will do.
If your tyres are fairly new, then having to replace one due to a rogue nail is even more frustrating, but for your safety, any good mechanics must follow the British Standard and only repair a tyre that has 6mm or less damage within the central 3/4 of the tyre. Repairing any larger puncture, or one outside this central area, would put too much strain on your tyre and risk it bursting.
Likewise, if you have Runflat tyres, which allow you to drive for a short distance on a punctured tyre, these need to be fully replaced if damaged.
Whether it’s a repair or a tyre change needed, our team will provide the highest level of service for a great price.
As mentioned, there are other areas of tyre upkeep that you may also want to consider. Tyre rotation is not something that a lot of drivers do, but it can help avoid uneven wearing – which can affect handling or lead to a puncture itself. If you use this service, our team will assess the wear and tear on your tyres and swap them around to ensure that they are wearing evenly.
Likewise, maintaining optimal air pressure in your tyres will ensure safer handling, greater fuel economy and reduce tread-wearing. Many cars now have an inbuilt alert system to warn the driver of low tyre pressure, and if you see this light then don’t hesitate to have it quickly dealt with. If you’re unsure about the pressure, then we can easily check this for you.
With all this talk of punctures and air pressure in tyres, we did think of making a pun about how our services won’t “let you down”, but luckily for you, we decided against it!
Mario turned up looking professional in uniform with an immaculate van, inspiring confidence he had high standards. He fitted a battery and programmed car brain in a mini cooper I was minding efficiently and quickly. He also explained after care. Very pleasant and trustworthy chap. Will use the service again when next in a mechanical rut! One caveat: I did have to buy the battery from Eurocarparts as it was considerably cheaper than the one quoted from MD but Mario was still happy to fit it. Many thanks.
Excellent. The kind of garage you look for. Had my work van serviced and tyres changed by Mario. All done to a high standard and in good time, I won’t be going anywhere else for my work vehicles or personal vehicles anymore. Thank you
Mario came out late one evening to bleed the fuel system on our Golf, he had everything up and running in no time and made sure to check everything else was running smoothly before he left. Really reliable, friendly and professional!
BRILLIANT! I had been having appalling car problems which I won't list here, had been to one garage after another, all of whom had charged me a fortune for doing nothing to improve anything, and then I came across Mario and MD Vehicle Solutions.Thank goodness I did! Mario is a serious professional, has great integrity, works to the highest possible standard, is 100% reliable, polite and helpful and more than goes that extra mile. I cannot praise him or recommend him and his company highly enough - absolutely fantastic. I shall never let anyone else ever service or go near any of my cars. Mario, you have a very grateful and hugely appreciative customer for life!
Very knowledgeable and punctual service. I've used MD three times, once for a service and twice for repairs, and the service was excellent. The maintenance van is a late model, and is clean and very well equipped, and Mario couldn't be more helpful and informative, and his work is top notch. I can highly recommend, and I will be using him again, when required, in future.
