    one from Seghill, North Tyneside:
    Paul at W Hedley & Sons - 0191 237 6007.
    Garage and Two Mechanics who support their own Farm and also Commercial Vehicle
    they have done my cooling system and hopefully will do more work on for me. They are not too pricey (willing to help) and looking to take on extra work.
    They have two side by side commercial style pits - one quite long - each with commercial jacks.

    I will also mention
    Mark at Hoddy's Recovery - based in Gateshead - 0191 469 1999
    They have five lanes of commercial pits - and do full VOSA testing in an adjoining yard. they are a very busy HGV/horsebox/commercial tester who does fix and mend for me and has been reasonable on prices.

    Hi guys. Just want to let you all no that tyres on the drive offer a fantastic home tyre fitting service. With very cheap prices. Free fitting with most tyres. And offer a price promise. So it takes the hardship out of going to the garage. I am now a full time fitter for the company and I have done a number of vans already. Hope to see you soon.

    Well I'm a fitter for them and that's incorrect. Any size any quality. Ring the free phone number.

    Well that would be a list of manufacture standard. Try the tab beside it. Manually enter your tire size. I done a set of 19inch bostons yesterday. On a t5

    Manually inserting a size is not an option , also their page says .....

    Vans and commercial vehicles

    We supply and fit tyres for a wide range of commercial vehicles up to 3.5 tonne, '''

    Their website is a bit of a headache. I recommend ringing them. They take a while to answer but your going to get a size that way.

    you won't get ripped off at AGS Eastney, Southsea (Portsmouth)...been using these guys for years, they are excellent and VERY reasonable. My bus does test their ramps however at 4T GVW ;they can't do the bigger stuff...I also test their height at 3M as they can't raise higher vehicles than that very easily. Within those parameters you won't find better IMO
