Found 6th Feb 2014
I was looking for a trolley jack & a pair of axle stands to get the rear wheels raised to change the brake pipes in safety. Found this deal which is an excellent price for small trolley jack for a family saloon
Order online or reserve in store
Read the feedback- 90-100%
PS for £4.99 I recommend wheel chucks
as an extra / ask at the till

& I forgot to mention-how Easy this is to lift a car
A Bargain, honestly-buy it for Fathers day!

Listen up TROLLS & Cold leavers
This is a deal for people on a budget! - not a forum to **** off Halfords
YES-you can buy better , but You probably own a BMW & don't have to worry about Garage repair prices so stop leaving rubbish comments.

To give an example on a Renault Clio failed MOT rear brake pipes severe corrosion....
Ebay price on pipes & a bleed kit - £56
cost of Axle stands etc £44 =total £100 ( and I intend to sell the jack later or give it to my son )

ATS Quote - £211
Nationwide - £270

All the info to work on the car was free on Utube!

I never buy from ebay however I do from trade, Halfords trade card, EK motorparts etc. Some people do not get how much they are getting ripped off.

eg, H7 bulb Halfords £10 with trade card £2 lol

Bosch aero wiper blades bmw e90 front £39 with card £17....

Change your own oil and filter = £29 and the list goes on.

If more people did their own maintenance these rip off merchants would go out of business, but that will never happen......

I agree..cars are just machines made difficult to maintain...even when they are not , the internet GOOGLE- 'Forum my * ' will help.
I would'nt normally go into Halfords - But this deal was too good to pass

I just hope enough people with a use, make use of this deal

There is out there information to do anything.

My moto is " If its that hard to do nobody would be doing it "

The short wheel base trolley jack in this deal was £29.99 for ages and the normal one was £34.99.

Now they are both £34.99 but the former now comes with a 'free' pair of axle stands.

I have had this jack and stands for about 6yrs. Still works great.
And back then i paid about £55 for both.
HOT

I'm not going to vote either way on this, because I bought the full kit with wheel chocks, various bolts and a tray to roll under the car from Halfords for £35 about 2/3 years ago. Of course this is today and not 3 years ago hence my not voting.

It was this kit:

hotukdeals.com/dea…333

hott, cheers op

To inform people for the use of the jack, since I have one; it's quite tall in its resting position, some cars are too low down for use with it, some BMWs an Audis are notable in this, also if the central jacking points are away from the perimeter of the car, the fact the jacking lever operates at quite an angle can limit how far under the car it will go.

If your cars are older/higher and have more space to access the jacking points though (or slide under the front or back), it's still a perfectly good jack and I've used mine about 100 times with no signs of wear.

Edit: Turns out this is a short wheel base jack and doesn't have quite the same height extension as the one I bought, still should have the same durability though.

picked up the box last time (jack, axel stands, chocs & creeper) it was cheap, not far off, if no this actual price. The jack has been great, but for ease of storage and a way no to lose the small pole, a case would be good.
Axel stands do exactly what they say, no problems, no complaints. ...the creeper I sold as I have a shingled drive...typical. .
Heat for the bundle, but this was better when it had more to it.

Reserved! Thanks

2 ton jack is not strong enough to lift a car! i had one of them it is like a toy. so be careful. buy 3 ton is much beter. good luck

Yup my bm too low to get these under. I have to use normal one then get axle holders in place

I don't think the idea is to lift the whole car in one go.

Didn't you have to pay for new brake fluid as well?
Still a complicated procedure in my opinion, I changed the oil on my cars 3 times, 3 different cars, bought all sorts of tools for it (to lift the car, to unscrew the filter etc). Spent lots of time in the cold, wet, wind, got dirty from the oil pouring all over me, discovered I do not know where to dispose of the oil etc.

In the end, I realised that by the time you measure the time and effort and tools, you are probably better off doing the oil change at a local garage (£20).

What a load of tosh..!

2 tonne is more than enough to lift any car and most vans whether your changing wheels or need to work off axle stands!

The low profile jack is the best option though !

Very few cars are over 2 ton and even if they are, the whole weight isn't on the jack when you lift up a corner of it.

But I think I've seen these jacks for £15-£20 in Asda, JTF etc.

Picked one up so I can do my own oil change and change my front bumper - thanks!

For anyone needing something more heavy duty, the £75 lifting kit comes with the £50 wheel ramps for FREE so you could lift your whole car if you wanted.

don't forget extra 10% off B15MT01

I do my own oil and filter change. i don't know about others, for DIY, I find it easier and faster is to use ramps( around £30).
amazon.co.uk/Cou…IUW

just drive the car up the ramps, then you can access sump plug and oil filter. Used oil can be disposed off at your local council domestic recycling sites.

you don't know what kind oil local garage put in your car for £20. I alway use fully synthetic oil because i read it somewhere that its much better for the engine.
