How much does it cost for a wheel alignment?
We offer fixed price wheel alignment, which depends on the number of axles on your vehicle, & also on your location. We service a large area from our Brisbane depot, so travel charges may apply. Click here to go straight to our pricing information.
What area do you service?
Truckologist currently services Greater Brisbane, Ipswich & Gold Coast areas (south to QLD/NSW border). As we continue to grow, we aim to offer our services to a larger area.
How do I get a quote?
The best way to get an indication of costs is to call & speak to our technicians, as there are several variables involved. We also like to ask a number of questions about vehicle handling & tyre wear problems, & collect as much information as possible about your vehicle issues.
My vehicle wears tyres unevenly and/or doesn’t handle very well. Can you fix it?
The short answer is yes, however there are numerous factors that affect tyre wear & handling, & misalignment of axles is one of them. Vehicles in Australia certainly take a beating in our harsh conditions, so steering & suspension component wear or damage is also a contributing factor. Kingpin & bearing movement in wheels can adversely affect our ability to accurately align your vehicle, so it’s best to eliminate these possible issues before making a booking.
So what happens if you come to a wheel alignment & you find another issue that’s affecting tyre wear & handling?
We check steering & suspension components while onsite. If there’s an issue that we believe will prevent us from producing a real result for you on the day, we will advise you to have components repaired, & we will reschedule your wheel alignment for another day. A call out fee is charged if this occurs. In most cases, we can arrange for our mobile diesel mechanic to perform the repairs for you.
How often do I need a wheel alignment?
This is a good question, & can vary depending on the conditions in which a vehicle operates. As a rule of thumb, every 12 months is a good indication. We have several fleets who monitor their running costs very closely, & they insist on having a wheel alignment every 6 months. We do offer an annual SMS reminder service so you know when your vehicle is due.
Do you only service retail customers directly?
No, we also offer our services to Mechanical/Tyre Workshops & Operators. We have many businesses that we deal with on a wholesale basis, which allows them to offer a value added service to their clients & to increase their bottom line. If you would like more information on partnering with our business, please visit our wholesale partners page.
What payment methods can I use?
We accept cash & also offer mobile EFTPOS, Visa & MasterCard facilities. Established clients can pay by cheque also or even apply for a 30 day account.
