A (non-descript) charge will be made for Valve & Balance.

Yeah... that makes it free then?

It's like me saying that I'll give you a free bike if you pay me a handling charge of £10,000

£10 for valve and balance
hotukdeals.com/dea…728

Of you're a Costco member they charge £10 for repair, sticky weights and new valve. Usual exclusions, side wall or 30mm from edges.

Kwik fit charged me £21 last time. So don't understand cold votes at £10 from National deal

Maybe not free, but £10 doesn't seem bad for the work involved.

I would steer very clear of kwik fit. I have had very bad experiences here and i don't approve of their pressure sales tactics to the less assertive...it's discusting!!

ATS, KwikFit, National, all these trye centres are much the same in that respect - overcharging, unnecessary work, charging for work and parts not fitted etc etc.

The last straw for me was at Kiwk Fit where I needed a tyre in a hurry and they charged me so much for a crappy no name tyre and smuggly admitted it would be much cheaper to order online but would take them longer (a day or so) to book that internet order in. - OK my bad luck but the final straw was that they filled it with Nitrogen for an additional charge without asking me. The cheeky barstewards...an Astra estate doesn't need nitrogen in one of its tyres!!!

And why anyway does a puncture repair require a new valve and tyre balancing?!

The balancing is needed as the tyre will be removed, but you have a point re the valve.

they cut the valve off to release the air faster but a new valve is cheeper than a someone standing there with his finger in the valve for 10 min lol
