Other Potential Costs
Our objective is to be a clear as possible about the price you can expect to pay in advance of doing the refurbishment work as nobody likes surprises when it comes to the time when the bill needs to be paid.
However, sometimes it is not possible for us to give you an exact price prior to doing the refurbishment of your wheels. The areas where this may occur and the reasons why are explained below.
Remember that we will always attempt to explain when potential price changes may be necessary and we will contact you to get your approval when a quoted price needs to change.
Unless you can be very specific and give us a paint code in advance so that we know exactly which mix of paints are required to achieve your desired finish then there is a chance that your colour choice may require more expensive base paint components for the mix.
Straightening and Welding
Sometimes it only becomes apparent whether any straightening or welding is required on a wheel once it has gone through the chemical strip process and the bare metal is visible to our technicians. We will contact you to let you know.
On our price list we show some ‘Optional Items’ including centre caps and wheel stickers/decals. If you wish to have new center caps and replacement wheels stickers/decals then we will need to source these and charge accordingly. We do not aim to make a profit on supplying these items, simply cover our costs.
We also show displosal of tyres as an optional item. If you wish for us to dispose of tyres, say because you have had new tyres fitted as part of the process of getting your wheels refurbished, then we need to pass on the costs of disposal of the old tyres. We only dispose of tyres using licensed waste removal companies and therefore a cost is incurred for this service.
