    I've never had it done before. Just rang a garage local to me and have been quoted £72 is this a fair price, dont want to get ripped off.

    Depends on if it is a vehicle specific four wheel alignment (using Hunters equipment) or just a laser four wheel tracking alignment

    Check alignmycar.co.uk to see if they are listed
    Phone them back and ask if they print out reports before and after
    If not, then its not Hunters equipment; go elsewhere

    Before visiting
    If possible remove as much out of the car as possible, that would not normally be in the car (extra screenwash, bootbox, etc) but you can leave things in (like glovebox contents, locking wheel nuts, spare wheel, etc)
    Check and adjust all tyre pressures

    I paid about £45 for mine, this site will give you details for where the nearest ones are in your area. There's also a £5 off voucher to print off too.

    Thanks for that. Very interesting. The company which quoted me £72 isn't on their list but the same company in a different town 20 miles from me is, just phoned them and they have quoted my £50 plus i can use the £5 off voucher

    Excellent, that sounds like a result there.

    Having had it done on my car (6 month old Mondeo at the time) it's amazing how much they can be out. Car felt a lot more planted afterwards.

    these prices are just for the test, if they have to alter anything then they charge extra.. mine came to about £90 in the end but i was satisfied with what they did and they used a Hunter laser alignment machine.

    Not for Hunters equipment they shouldn't
    It is normally fixed at between £50 and £80, there should be no charge for adjustment as the fee takes into account the service taking 1 hour including any adjustment

    Normally for a tracking (front wheels only) and laser four wheel, the check is free and any adjustment is chargeable
    Equally, some places charge for checking (typically £15) and a further charge for adjustment)

    m8 internet...........they charge different prices

    alltyres huddersfield did mine and charged £45 all in...............the other place wanted more than that just to put it on the ramps

    just because they all use hunters they are not dictated to as to what to charge
