Penarth Tyres
5 Jobs Completed
Penarth
5.0 / 5

When the opportunity arose for Tyre Specialist Chris Cronin to acquire a garage on Station Road, Penarth, it was something he couldn't turn down. Not only did the garage offer a place for him to exercise the experience he'd gained in the tyre industry over the last 10 years, it also fulfilled the need for an outlet solely providing and fitting tyres in Penarth.

In May 2014, Penarth Tyres was officially opened and a company logo relating to the English translation of Penarth (arth= bear and pen=head) was created.

Priding ourselves on our experience, friendliness and competitive prices, we guarantee you’ll be impressed with the service provided. As well as stocking a large amount of budget tyres and premium tyres such as Michelin, Dunlop, Continental and Falken, we are also able to accommodate run- flats, 4x4s and vans.

You could say Penarth Tyres is something of a paradox - whilst commited to the old fashioned values of honesty, quality and reliability, we also have invested in brand new state- of- the- art machines. With top of the range equipment, it means any size wheel and any service can be dealt with efficiently and to a high standard.

Although we do guarantee a quick and efficient service, if you're looking to drop off your car and pick it back up at a later time.. no problem! Located conveniently in Penarth town centre with ample parking and access to local shops, buses and Penarth train station, you're able to get on with your day car- free if needs be. Or if more suitable, we do offer a local collection and drop off service for no extra cost.

Frequently asked questions
+

What is a Mobile Mechanic?

A Mobile Mechanic will usually come to your house or place of work with the parts, and the tools, they need to fix or service your car then and there. Alternatively they may come to collect your car, repair it at their garage and then return it to you.
+

What repairs will a Mobile Mechanic perform?

Mobile Mechanics can perform the majority of repairs your car needs, including: servicing, brakes, cambelt changes and more. Some will also perform more heavy-duty work such as clutch repair / replacement.
+

Do I need to be at home during the repair or service?

No. Indeed, the main advantage of a Mobile Mechanic is convenience: you agree logistics (e.g. keys) with them, and carry on with your day as normal, with no need to drop off or collect your car.
+

Can Mobile Mechanics change a clutch?

Depending on the car and the mechanic, yes. Some clutches are easy-to-access. Others require hours of time underneath the car - harder for a Mobile Mechanic.
+

Is a Mobile Mechanic cheaper than a 'fixed' garage?

Mobile Mechanics are often cheaper than a fixed-premises garage, yes, due to lower overhead costs. However, note that we always advise drivers to choose a garage or mechanic based on both price AND reputation. If in doubt, read their latest reviews on WhoCanFixMyCar.com.
+

What do I do if I need extra repairs that my Mobile Mechanic can't perform?

Not to worry! Many Mobile Mechanics will have access to a fixed-premises garage as well. If not, WhoCanFixMyCar.com will put you in touch with another of their 7,500 garages nationwide.
+

Can Mobile Mechanics do MOTs?

Yes, some mobile mechanics will carry out MOTs. They will often collect the car from you, take it to a MOT bay to carry out the MOT and then drop it back after. However, this can be a costly excercise for the mechanic due to travel costs so many Mobile Mechanics do not offer this service.
+

What do Mobile Mechanics charge?

Just like fixed garages, Mobile Mechanics will charge you for their labour and for the parts they need to complete the service or repair. In some cases this is cheaper than a fixed premises due to less overheads, but they also must travel and so need to be compensated for that time too.
+

Can I trust a Mobile Mechanic?

Read reviews before choosing a mobile mechanic or garage. You can also ask to see insurance information. Be wary of a suspiciously low price, it will often be cheap parts being used which will ultimately fail within a couple of months.

Mobile car repair is a service offered by mechanics who may be able to offer a reduced price on car maintenance.

This is due to the fact that they do not have any overhead costs associated with running or owning a garage. Garage owners have to cover running costs and so the expenses are passed onto customers when paying for car repair.

Even if you suspect you have a massive amount of work required you can utilise a mobile vehicle diagnostic to assess the damage before going to a garage to have the repair completed.

If your car brake’s down and you have it towed to a garage, you will have to pay for the car being towed to the garage itself.
