So you’ve got a flat tyre, what happens now?
Mobile Hot Tyres can fit new tyres at home, work, anywhere. However, you might not realise that our technicians are fully trained to assess and repair punctures, too.
This is not a roadside assistance service with a temporary outcome.
If your tyres are in good nick and are repairable, our puncture repairs are permanent and professional, and comply with all Australian safety standards. They’re also fully guaranteed.
Please note that not all tyres are repairable – but we never want to leave you stranded.
So, when Mobile Hot Tyres are scheduling your puncture repair, we will offer to bring a replacement tyre as a contingency.
As such, when you order mobile puncture repair, you’ll be asked to provide your current tyre size and brand preference for a replacement.
What constitutes a tyre repair?
A flat tyre is generally caused by a puncture to a tyre’s casing by sharp objects (e.g. small nails or screws), causing air leakage and deflation.
The location of the puncture will determine if the tyre is repairable. Normally, tyres with punctures within the tread area are repairable.
However, tyres can often be beyond repair and will require a replacement if there are sizeable punctures to the tread or punctures in the tyre’s shoulder or sidewall regions.
To comply with Australian safety standards, Mobile Hot Tyres will only repair a tyre if it fits the following criteria:
- The puncture has occurred in the repairable zone highlighted in green
- The puncture has a diameter of less than 6mm.
- There is no evidence of internal or sidewall deterioration including splits, cuts or blistering.
- There is no other puncture within the immediate area of the tyre.
- The entry angle of the object allows for safe and proper seating of the patch.
- The tyre is in an otherwise roadworthy condition.
If you suspect you have a punctured tyre, simply contact us at your earliest convenience and we will have one of our mobile tyre specialists sent to your destination to perform a full tyre assessment, repair and/or a replacement on-site and in an instant!
