Mobile Puncture Repair Service
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.
A puncture is one of a driver’s most frustrating experiences. Especially as it’s often discovered just when we want to go somewhere. Flat tyres mostly occur when a nail, screw or glass splinter pierces the tyre casing. The air escapes, and the tyre deflates.
For maximum safety on road it is important for effective and reliable tyre repairs that are performed in accordance to the Australia standard. The most common damage to tyres is without a doubt tread puncture.
Damage to tyres can be classified into major and minor repairs.
Minor repairs consist of damage limited to rubber only or tread punctures. These types of tyre damage can be repaired using minor repair methodology as per the Australian Standard.
Where tyre damage exceeds the standard limits, then damage will be classified as major damage requiring a different repair methodology to be applied.
If repair is possible, we’ll make it our priority to get your tyre patched and get you on your way as quickly as possible.
Unfortunately, not all punctures are created equal some can’t be repaired, for example, punctures in the sidewall. Our mobile tyre service technician will bring a replacement tyre of your choosing to ensure that you can get straight back on the road in the event that your tyre cannot be repaired!. Rest assured, we’ll only replace if absolutely necessary and we’ll be more than happy to show you why.
