Possibly the most accurate wheel alignment system available.
Wheel Alignment/Tracking Service based in Essex
At Mercury Cars, we offer a full range of car services and repairs, including wheel alignment. As experts in the trade, we understand how important it is that your car has a correct alignment.
A 4 wheel alignment check – sometimes referred to as tracking – can be as simple as a slight adjustment to your front wheels, rear wheels, tyres and suspension, to ensure optimal use of your car.
Not only will it help your vehicle to travel straight without having to steer to one side, but it will also save you a lot of money. A professional alignment will reduce tyre wear, increase tyre life and reduce fuel consumption, potentially saving you up to 10% on fuel costs. Prolonging the life of your tyres will also reduce costs.
What we do
Our wheel alignment service is a simple process, and the professionals here at the Mercury Car Centre will make sure that the alignment is done quickly and efficiently, so your car can be back on the road again in no time.
We work to meet the design that is set out by the car manufacturer specifications; however, we can alter the standard tyre alignment angles to meet your requirements if requested. An example of this could be if you are looking for your vehicle to be driven off-road.
Our team of experienced technicians can provide you with the best advice, and only use only the best equipment to get the job done.
3D Four Wheel Alignment
In fact, the team here at Mercury Cars use one of the most accurate wheel alignment systems available: Bosch 3D Four Wheel Alignment equipment.
This modern 3D system offers incredible precision, as well as fast results for the alignment of every car make and model to maximise your driving experience, in terms of comfort and good value.
With the help of this state-of-the-art technology, most alignment problems can be solved by qualified technicians in around 30 minutes – only a short time for something that’s very important.
The Bosch 3D wheel alignment equipment measures a minimum of 12 angles and compares them to the alignment data provided by the vehicle manufacturers specifications, spotting any potential problems with incredibly accurate readings.
When should I check my wheel alignment?
There are a number of signs to look out for that suggest you need to get your tyres checked by a professional, including:
- When your car has hit something (from a kerb to a more serious collision)
- When you change your tyre pressure or buy a set of new tyres
- When you replace steering/suspension components
- If you notice uneven tyre wear
- If you experience steering problems with your car wheels, eg. your car drifts to one side or your steering wheel is at an angle when you’re driving in a straight line
Even if you don’t seem to be experiencing any problems with your wheel alignment, we still recommend that you have it checked annually to help prevent future issues with your car.
