The more labour and time saving devices we come up with, the busier our lives get, and sometimes it can be hard to find the time to schedule a visit to the garage to have your new tyres fitted. Emergency tyre fitting is often worse, with you stranded and unable to limp to your mechanic for some automotive TLC. But mobile tyre fitting is exactly the solution you have been looking for, here are some dos and don’ts of mobile tyre fitting:
Don’t Panic – A Mobile Fitter is Awaiting Your Call!
Give your regular mechanic a call as he or she is sure to know of a reputable tyre fitter. Or check with Ossett Tyre House to help you with mobile tyre fitting if you are in Pontefract. No matter where in the country you are, a mobile tyre fitter can get to you, using GPS coordinates or WhatThreeWords (a specific location app) to find you. All you need to do is call, whether you are planning a schedule tyre change and check up or if you have broken down and need help in a hurry.
Don’t Hesitate to Ask for Extras
Mobile tyre fitting is a highly developed industry, and you might be surprised to find out that your roadside helper can not only fit your new tyres in a trice, but they can run diagnostics on your vehicle, balance and align your wheels and much more, all to ensure that your vehicle is in the best possible condition before you take to the road again.
Do Allow Enough Time
Mobile tyre fitting is a relatively quick task, but it does need a certain amount of time. The whole job will take up to forty minutes, so do make sure you leave enough time between your fitting and your next appointment.
Do Make Sure You’re Accessible
And finally, make sure the van can get close to your car, especially if it is a modern one with an onboard computer. The technician will need to run connections or use Bluetooth between your vehicle and his diagnostic device, so he or she will need to park within a metre or so of your car.
