How soon can your mobile alloy wheel refurbish team reach me?
Normally within 24-48 hours.
WHERE CAN I FIND THE LOCKING WHEEL NUTS?
Very important question! If you can’t find these then we can’t remove the wheel for a full repair. These are often kept where your spare wheel is (or should be!), in the glove box or the last place you will look……
How long does a repair last?
It depends on the lovely British roads, crazy kerbs in supermarket car-parks, your/other-halfs(!) driving but also if it was previously repaired, how you clean them & what products you use. See our articles for help with that.
Do you give guarantees?
Even better, we give you our word & we do what we say. If you’re not happy & prefer a refund then we will arrange that.

Alloy wheel repair techies like their jargon but most of us just drive our cars & have no idea so we’ve put together some helpful explanations for you about powder coated & diamond cut alloy wheels.

The short answer is time. An alloy wheel smart repair is performed at your premises, normally within one hour. A full alloy wheel refurbishment is when we take your wheel(s) back to our workshop for some serious TLC, normally returning in 3-4 working days.
Do you prefer cash or Bank Transfer?
Either is fine for us but we don’t take card payments due to the excessive charges for small businesses like us 🙁
