Why Choose Us
What Is TPMS?
TPMS stands for Tyre Pressure Monitoring System. The system is designed to notify you when your tyre pressures start to drop below a certain threshold, typically 25% of the recommended pressure.
TPMS helps to reduce CO2 emissions, improve road safety, and increase your tyre life, but it does require maintenance and repair over time.
If you have a flashing TPMS warning light, then this is an indication it’s time to replace your tyre pressure sensors.
TPMS Sensor Replacement
If you do require a new TPMS sensor, the sensors we keep in stock are compatible with 99.9% of car makes on the market. We also offer a two-year warranty, free of charge.
If you decide to purchase your own sensors, we can install these for you; however, not all tyre sensors will work with your car, so you will need to choose carefully if you’re buying your own.
Free Programming & Mobile Fitting
All of our TPMS sensors come with free programming and free mobile fitting (providing you are within our normal service area).
We also a discount when you buy more than one sensor, so if the battery is flat on one of your sensors then it may be worth replacing them all at once to save money, rather then paying full price each time one decides to stop working.
TPMS Valve Repair
If your tyre valve has snapped off while checking your pressures, you may be worried about paying for a brand new sensor.
The good news is that, in most cases, you may only need to replace the valve component rather than the entire unit – meaning a cheaper repair and no need for programming or relearning to be performed.
We stock a wide selection of tyre sensor valves, so it’s highly likely we’ll have the right one for your vehicle.
How Much Does It Cost?
The price for our TPMS sensors can vary depending on the type of vehicle you own, as well as your location (if you are outside of our normal service area).
It also works out cheaper if you have more than one sensor valve fitted, so your best option for finding out the price would be to give us a call on 0800 7311260.
Our TPMS specialists can discuss with you over the phone what your problem is and then advise you on the next step to take, as well as the potential costs.
If you live in Dorset, it’s highly likely we cover your area. Our normal service area includes Poole, Bournemouth, Christchurch, Swanage and Blandford. We also offer an out-of-area service if required.
Unfortunately, in most cases, if you have a metal valve cap stuck onto the tyre valve, it’s unlikely it will come off without snapping the valve.
Corrosion. Metal valve caps on metal valve stems are never a good combination and often leads to the valve cap becoming seized on, even after just a few months.
