HiQ Carterton Manager
Get tyre smart
Ever wonder what those tyre numbers mean?
245/45/R18 91 V
- 245 - The width of the tyre in millimetres
- 45 - Profile height of the tyre sidewall as a percentage of the width
- R18 - The diameter of the wheels inner rim in inches
- 91 - The load index indicates the maximum load the tyre can carry
- V- The speed rating indicates the maximum speed for the tyre
I'd like to thank the lady's and gentlemen at Hiq Carterton. Fantastic service sorted my car out for me at short notice and not for the first time. Fantastic job. Thank you
Great service, David went the extra mile to fix my car and get it back to me in the same day.
I needed tyres for my classic Triumph Bonnevile and decided to try the Carterton HiQ motorcycle department. The manager quickly quoted a fair price so decided to go ahead. I was reassured to find that the staff in the workshop were both multi franchise main dealer trained as well as being experienced with classic bikes. I also learned that in addition to tyres, they cover all aspects of bike maintenance and restoration. I was very impressed by the guys that did the work and the manager that took time to show me around the workshop.
Can't thank the Manager(David) and his staff enough. Had the car booked in for tomorrow afternoon, for 2 new tyres. Not only did they fit them earlier, they went out of their way to accommodate me. I will definitely use them again. I have done so for many years as they are very dependable and trustworthy. Thanks again
After visiting for an MOT on my vehicle (which failed) I was quoted a very high price for the remedial work required. I was also told that a free retest was only offered if carried out within 24 hours which I feel is unrealistic if you need work carrying out. The staff were very blunt to talk to and didn't seem like they had any time for me they just wanted my money and me out the door. When I got home I noticed they had damaged my car but this wasn't mentioned when I collected it. I didn't bother to contact them about it because of their attitude towards me when dealing with then previously. I have since been to another garage for a fresh MOT which including the remedial work needed came out less than one aspect of the work quoted by hiq. Needless to say I won't be returning.
Many thanks to David and his team, fitting my car in last minute and going out of their way to be helpful. We'll certainly continue to use this garage. Cheers, Adam
