wouldn"t bother getting wheel alignment done here. They use Mickey Mouse stuff that does very little. Pay properly to someone that uses Hunter equipment or similar. alignmycar.co.uk for local garage

£15 MOT for £35?! Bargain

stay clear, cowboys

Free puncture repair - A charge (£10) will be made for valve (which they probably won't/need to replace) and balance.

I'm sure they will tell you they can't fix it, or that its not worth fixing. lol

Get you in the door prices, don't worry, they will get your money, one way or the other.

Local National branch destroyed all four of my alloy wheels when fitting tyres. Yes all four, bunch of tossers.

tried using their wheel alignment service before in this offer, got a load of bs story about having to use a hot spanner with blow torch meaning that the offer wasn't valid. cowboys that I won't use again

worst company ever

Not a great deal, wheel alignment is £10 is most places plus my local place doesn't charge if it doesn't need to be done.
Almost certain National will charge whatever.
If you're in Lichfield/North Brum you can't go wrong with TradeTyres based in Shenstone.

If you look around £35 is standard for an MOT, many places might charge £40 but they probably won't give you a list of 'problems' either....
Sorry OP, not meaning to be cruel I just don't feel there is true value in using someone like National.

cowboys, snaped off valve pressure sensor in my tyre refused to replace it.

Cowboys just like High-Q and Quickfit they all rip you of and that's from personal experience

Absolute prats this lot. It's half price for a reason. They aborted my MOT after 7 minutes because a wheel nut was damaged. Didn't finish the mot. Went away and sorted wheel nut. Went back and failed it again so i let rip about not carrying out full mot and giving failures/advisorys. "My choice he said im the tester". Never heard of an aborted test before. 3rd attempt tried failing on the wipers saying they didn't clear the screen properly-i drove there in a really heavy downpour. After threatening to rip his throat out he passed it. Rant over. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

I've used the guys in Bolton with vouchers a few times to get punctures etc done, no hard sell - got the jobs done. YMMV

Free puncture repair will cost at least 10 quid!!!!

Had an oil change done with these. Tried to tell me the undertray needed removing and will cost extra. This was even tho my undertray has a access flap on it. I pointed this out to him and he said they need to 'inspect' the sump for insurance reasons. In the end he did it without removing it because it would have taken 20min to get it off. Wouldn't use them for mot, they'll fail it on anything minor.

The firm works by putting each depot under big pressure to reach sales targets, in my experience they will try and sell you things you don't need so they can meet them in fear of loosing their jobs, also paid a rubbish wage with no real incentive other than if they are the top selling depot in the region they win a prize....again pushing the sale of unwanted items to customers. Most 'special offers' also take away from their targets making it even harder for them causing the need to sell extra stuff when you use one.

Just had 2 tyres fitted at National tyres Rochdale, Got home and inspected the wheels and both front rims looked badly scratched. After some heavy handed cleaning with T cut eventually got rid of the black tar like substance which they use to put on the tyres. No customer care obviously. a blind man could have seen the state of the alloys, what would it take to show some customer care and clean off the residue of their fitting solution. Also had the free wheel alignment, and of coarse, my wheel were 6mm and 8 mm out at the front. Asked for the price £29.00 inc VAT. never mentioned the discount voucher available at £15.00 inclusive. Went in with 2 car remote keys working got home and only 1 now functions. After reading reviews about their abilities on wheel alignment........ I think I will avoid using National Tyres services for the foreseeable future. Dodge City springs to mind !!

they have similar machine to hunter, also kwikfit uses hunter and they charge 65, that is just stupid. So for 15 it is really good

I second staying away from this company. had 2 new front tyres fitted at my local branch ,both alloys damaged and a small dent and paint mark on th side of my car which wasnt there before i took it in. went through their claims procedure and even though their manager agreed that at least the wheel damage was their fault,the claim has been denied by their insurance company and themselves. To cut a long story short they will lead you through a long claims process (2 1/2 months) , and then will increasingly ignore your calls and emails in the hope you give up.
No one had the courtesy to tell me my claim was denied until i went to their online site asking why my claim was taking so long/why my emails and calls were being ignored. If your car is damaged by them, they WONT look after you.
