Took car to Mr Tyre last week for 4 wheel balancing and check wheel bearings cos i had a vibration

managed to charge me for balance and tracking, no time to check the bearings...


took it to Kwikfit, 1 tyre was distorted, cracked, uneven tread depth across tyre and had wires showing (tread was legal though)


not impressed

just cost me £105.00 to fill up the 8 seater and the tank wasn't even empty :sad:

so if the trip computer is to be believed that's 18.1p per mile for the fuel alone [-(

No you didn’t. Wouldn’t call you a C***. C***’s are useful.

Are you swallowing that extra cost or are the punters?

I have put our airport rates up a bit but the rest we are swallowing remember we run on SKDC default rate like most local cabs and to be honest am too busy to sort out organising an increase independently
