£10 for Car Puncture Repair (using voucher) at National

Found 6th Aug 2013
Recently had a puncture in my car. everywhere I looked it was £18 or more for a repair.

National have an on-going deal where you get £8 off a repair, so you only pay for the valve stem and wheel balance costing £10 in total.

Makes a puncture repair not feel so bad on the wallet.

Not bad, but most local garages I've used only charge £10 anyway for the lot.

depends where you are I guess... my locals charge £15 excluding VAT (and then do they even give you new valves and balance wheel? I dunno)

I normally get charged £5 - probably the only thing cheaper here in NI

I have had many punctures repaired before and have never had a new valve fitted afterwards or had the wheels balanced. Why would they need to replace the valve?

I dunno, i'm no tyre expert but don't the patches add weight to the tyre and off-balance them slighty?

valve you can argue about... But if the tyre has been removed then the location of it in relation to the rim will have changed when re-fitted. Therefore you will need to get it re-balanced as the previous balance will be off.

Appreciate the tip, thanks.

my local charges £5 for a filler

Most garages only charge £10 to plug a tyre anyway

Still worth heat though.
