I had a puncture. I had it repaired in Merityre Bagshot on Monday paying 19.95 £. On Tuesday my tire was very low. I came back and they told me I had a new nail just to 1 cm from the puncture of the day before (I didn't believe them). The worse part was that they told me they weren't able to repair it and I had to buy a new tire. I went out from there and I went to another place in London Rd (nearly in front of the Pennyhill Hotel). They repaired it in the moment without problem and I paid 10 £ !!!!! Of course, I am a woman.
My wife got a puncture in a tyre this week. She went to Merityre in Bagshot and they explained that the tyre needed replacing and all four would have to be replaced to avoid unbalancing the vehicle. Cost £250 x 4 = £1,000.
She then went to Martin's tyres in West End (http://www.martins-tyres.co.uk/) who having heard the above explanation 'apologetically' pointed out that she is a woman and then charged her £10 for a puncture repair.
I spent a morning on line and on the telephone trying to get a replacement tyre even the depots that had the tyre in stock were not very helpfull telling me I had to place the order on line to get any discount one told me to book on line and come over rightaway and they would give me a discount but not as much as the on line discount but the online site would not al;low me to do this.When I phoned Merityre Kingston(my nearest depot) they did not have my tyre in stock but told me that their Southfields branch had 4, I phoned Southfields who told me to come straight over and quoted me the cheapest price of the day. time from Ham and back including fitting the tyre one hour. I shall definitely use them again and recommend them to my friends and family.
