A repair over replace philosophy as well as close attention to cycle times to minimise vehicle off road times means consistently economical repairs for their fleet customers, ultimate customer loyalty and satisfaction. Furthermore, investment in wheel alignment equipment ensures that their customers’ costs for tyre wear and fuel consumption is kept to an absolute minimum.
