Well, it's been a busy week, with one or two unusual cars in for wheel alignment. It's always much nicer to work when the sun is shining, and we've had plenty of that.
What we hear a lot of from our customers is 'we would have come to you sooner, but we didn't know you were here' which is really frustrating for us, as we've advertised lots recently, in the paper, on the radio, signs up and down the roads etc. A really good way of advertising is to go to A&E for treatment wearing your work t-shirt !! Well, it worked for me. After having the hinged counter crash down on my hand the other day, I spent a day complaining about the pain, and knew it looked bad, as even Brad was being sympathetic, and he saw it happen. The next day I thought it best to have an X-ray so nipped myself to Pontefract A&E, where a lovely friendly Dr decided it wasn't broken, and then spent the rest of the time getting my details and telling me about his BMW X5, and how it really needed aligning. By the end of the week he was booked in and had his alignment done. I wonder if it works when you're out shopping as well!! I don't need much of an excuse.
At the beginning of the week we had a Land Rover Defender 90 in, with the biggest wheels I've seen on one, so big, we had to adapt the alignment targets to get them on the wheels, but after all the extra effort no alignment was needed, as it was spot on. This is something we really don't mind, so don't be put off. We will do the alignment check for FREE and there is absolutely NO OBLIGATION for having work done even if it's needed. We know you'll recommend us to others, and you'll be back next time you want an alignment done, we're sure of that.
We also had a lovely Quantum kit car in for alignment, and Brad's old driving instructor (as in back in the days he was learning, not the instructor who's old) has been in for tyres and alignment on his Seat Leon FR, if anyone wants driving lessons he's the man (Trinity Driving School 07737 656026).
Pleased to say that after a couple of weeks where it was pretty quiet, it's back busier than ever.
