Very Disappointed: Damage to Alloy Wheels
Customer Service
Quality
Value
I've been a customer for many years and always been pleased with the work undertaken. However, my recent visit to have two new rear tyres fitted has resulted in both alloy wheels being damaged: both had areas of fine parallel scratches covered in dirt/grease together with a much deeper scratch in one wheel. Unfortunately – due to bad weather – I did not notice this damage until a few days later when I went to clean the dirt off the rear wheels. I took the car back to the garage but they insisted that the damage must have occurred over time and may have been caused by cleaning the wheels with an abrasive tool. However, this damage must have happened to both wheels at the same time (and within the last week since the car was last cleaned and no such damage existed). I am the only person who cleans the car and the wheels and I use a sponge and soft brush. I sincerely believe that this damage was caused whilst my car was in their hands. I am very disappointed with their dismissive response and I will not be using Llanishen MOT and Services again.

Thank you for your review. We are disheartened to hear of your disappointment following your visit to us early last week. We have screened the CCTV on the day your vehicle was in with us and can assure you that the mechanic that replaced your tyres handled your alloys with care, rolling them across the court to the tyre machine and back , and ensured that when they were placed on the floor, they were the facing upwards. If our tyre machine were to damage alloys in any way, the marks would be around the circumference of the alloy, however, the marks presented to us this week were near the centre of the alloy, and the brush marks were on one of the spokes. Unfortunately, our CCTV does not enable us to zoom in enough to see whether or not the marks were present when the vehicle came in to us, but we are saddened that you believe we are the reason that they are damaged. If you did want to discuss this again, we will be more than happy to speak with you.

Booked in for 7am for a replacement indicator bulb necessitating bumper removal for access to it. I went for a swim and returned an hour later to find the care ready for me, job done. This garage will go out of their way to accommodate their customers ably arranged by the very efficient Karen.
