Part of a Europe-wide chain of independent tyre dealers, Kingsway Tyres was initially set up in Stamford in 1976. Now boasting 16 branches across Lincolnshire, the East Midlands, Cambridgeshire and East Anglia, some sites also offer MOT tests, while others focus on service work.

The service from Kingsway has been great in previous years. However, this year, when i booked with the Downham Market branch, there were issues. Firstly, they could not do the MOT on the day i booked the service. They did try to ring me a few times before i arrived. However, i was unaware of the calls and turned up on the day to be told that they could not do the MOT. The report for the service checks was not fully completed as it had been in previous years. The first year i applied for the voucher, i used it at their Stamford branch in Peterbrough who had a reduced MOT charge and fully completed their service form. It was a more comprehensive job. This year, the box regarding a check to the air filer was not ticked. I had to go to their Fakenham branch a week later to get the MOT done. They charged a couple of quid less for the MOT. There does not seem to be a standardised price list or approach. I think Downham Market have less staff. I think it would be better if Groupon supplied contact details to Kingsway to ensure that customers are aware. For example, if i had had an e-mail or text message things would have run more smoothly. I don't usually listen to the voicemails on my mobile and this led to all of the problems. Therefore, to improve next time, i would recommend the following: Better communication. Kingsway must ask for two methods of contact. Standardised pricing. Customers should be aware of their MOT charge across all branches before they purchase the service voucher Extra services applied to the voucher. It would be great if the service check could include a replaced air filter if needed. Also, my wiper blades still needed replacing after the service. I had to go to Wilko to buy some and fit them myself. I wouldn't mind paying an extra £5.00 for a few add-ons. Ensuring that all Kingsway branches have somebody that can issue an MOT at all times. It doesn't appear that the smaller branches are equipped to offer the same service as the larger ones. Also, Kingsway in Downham don't offer MOT's/services on a Saturday. This would be the best day for most people. The larger branches like Peterborough do offer these services on a Saturday. I might go to Formula One Autos next year as they have done a good job with my tyres thus far and offer competitive pricing and opening times.
