Wheel Alignment

As we see such a wide variety of makes & models of vehicles, its very important for us to be able to offer the most accurate alignment repairs. This is not only to ensure the vehicle is safe on the road, but you get the maximum amount of wear from the tyres

We are fortunate enough to be one of the few places in Cornwall to have the top of the range Hunter ProAlign System. Using its Hawkeye digital imaging technology, cameras measure the position and orientation of the wheels with pinpoint accuracy using reflective targets. The data is then transferred onto a screen for us to see any alignment issues that may be occurring and for us to see the adjustments as we make them. Once this is done, we can then print the finished ‘before and after’ results on paper to give to our customers for them to see exactly what adjustments have been made.

Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS)

Advanced driver-assistance systems are systems developed to automate, adapt and enhance vehicle systems for safety and better driving. The automated system which is provided by ADAS to the vehicle is proven to reduce road fatalities, by minimising the human error.

Some of these systems include:

  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Lane departure warning
  • Emergency braking assist
  • Parking assist
  • Traffic sign recognition

We have have the specialist equipment needed to carry out vital recalibration to these systems, after any issue where the geometry of the car has been affected. For example an accident repaired car, where major suspension components have been replaced, or where alignment adjustments have been made that have affected the thrust angle of the vehicle. These are not only vital to make sure the systems work correctly, but are actually required by law for insurance purposes. We can not only offer this to our customers but to any trade outlet too such as other repair garages and bodyshops, who can make the initial repairs but do not have the equipment to recalibrate ADAS.
