Title: North eastern tyre and autocare - avoid...
Post by: woodstock on Feb 03, 2012, 16:06
needed some new front tyres so thought I'd try these out as they're close to here I work...

http://www.nete.co.uk/

was quoted 53.76 each for 2 front tyres, and of course I was expecting the extra charges for valves, balancing, disposal of old tyres - and this bumped up the charge an extra 18 quid...

but imagine my surpise when I got billed for compulsary tyre insurance @ 4.50 per tyre, and to have them filled up with nitrogen @ 2 quid a tyre..?


wtf..? - I drive an oldish car ffs for a grand prix motor..!!

so, the total bill was over 147 quid, avoid these cowboys like the plague, and they don't want to know now...

cnuts... :(

If you are anywhere near Chester le Street, try Cestria Tyres next time, up towards the railway station.

The price you are told includes everything and if something does not need doing you don't get charged for it, unlike some that charges for checking the tracking, whereas he only charges if it need adjusting.
