Frequently Asked Questions
1. How long does it take to remove locking wheel nuts?
On average we can remove all four locking wheel nuts in under 10 minutes, as long as they are not over tightened or damaged, as this may add to the time taken to remove the locking nuts.
2. What area do you cover for your mobile service?
Technically we can attend any location in the UK, our call-out charge is based on mileage. However, if you are closer to one of our verified experts, then we may recommend you contact them instead to save yourself some money.

3. My local garage said they can try to remove them, why should I choose you?
Local garages do not have our custom made tools to safely remove your locking wheel nuts without causing damage. We go out to customers on a daily basis where a local garage or tyre shop has caused damage to the wheel and locking wheel nut. Often the cost of repair for the wheel alone costs more than our service and the garage will often fail to remove the locking wheel nuts. We Guarantee removal and have a 100% success rate!

7. I have a Jaguar any my standard wheel nuts have snapped?
This is a common problem on all Jaguar vehicles due to a poor design of the wheel nuts. Because of how common this is, we have designed our own special tools for when your Jaguar wheel nuts snap. We can successfully remove your snapped Jaguar wheel nuts in minutes without causing any unnecessary damage to your expensive alloys. We have also designed and manufactured our own replacement wheel nuts to replace your snapped Jaguar wheel nuts. Our Jaguar wheel nuts do not suffer from this design flaw and will not snap like the original wheel nuts do.
8. I have watched someone remove a locking wheel nut online, why should I use your service?
The techniques you see online will fail 90% of the time. Most modern locking wheel nuts now consist of a spinning outer collar, this makes DIY removals impossible. We do not recommend you attempt to remove the locking wheel nut yourself as it will cause more damage to the nut and possibly the wheel making the cost of removal more expensive. We can however also remove stuck sockets from locking wheel nuts for people who watch too much YouTube.
9. Do I need to bring my own replacement locking wheel nuts with me?
No, this is not necessary. You are more than welcome to bring your own locking wheel nuts, however, we stock a wide range of genuine locking wheel nuts and standard wheel nuts, and our price is usually cheaper than the dealership due to us buying them in bulk. Please ensure you book your replacement nuts/bolts with your locking wheel nut removal service to ensure availability.
