We are willing and able to come to you wherever you are. We need to be able to get our van within 10m of your vehicle and we need approximately 600mm around your car to work safely to make the replacement. Our van has a height restriction of 2.3m. Of course, you will need permission of the property owner to allow us to change your wheels where ever your car is parked.
You do not need to be there however we will require your car keys in case of any alarms and the Technician will need your locking wheel nut (if fitted). Some customers are happy to leave these with a designated person (neighbour or Company reception) if you are busy. We will return your keys to this person once the work has been carried out.  Just let us know in advance where they will be using the online booking system.

Our Technician will text you to confirm the work has been carried out. Within 48 hours of the appointment we will send you a report on the condition of your tyres and if you choose a seasonal health check, the details of the necessary actions.
