Free Kwik Fit Mobile Tyre Fitting Service at Home for Motability Scheme Customers

One of the most common car problems to happen is needing new tyres. Regardless if it’s planned or unexpected, tyre replacement can be a hassle and time-consuming having to visit the nearest Kwik Fit centre. But what happens if you can’t get to a garage or if there are accessibility issues at the nearest Kwik Fit centre?

Whenever I’ve been in these situations, Kwik Fit mobile tyre fitting service has been the solution. And I’m happy to share my experience having used this service three times and why I think you’ll love the convenience of this mobile tyre fitting service too.

What is Kwik Fit Mobile Tyre Fitting?

Kwik Fit mobile tyre fitting service is an amazing option for anyone to use, but it’s particularly handy for Motability Scheme customers. It’s hassle-free and super convenient to arrange an appointment.

Like all vehicles, our Motability cars will experience general wear and tear throughout the duration of the lease, so, it’s always best to keep on top of general maintenance and that includes checking for damage to the tyres.

Does Kwik Fit come to you at home?

Yes, Kwik Fit Mobile come to you whether that’s at home or work. They will also come on a specific day and at a time that suits you.

I’ve used the mobile tyre fitting service three times and each time the service has been great.

On two occasions the tyre technician has come out to replace tyres on my Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) that were looking worn and the third time was to replace a punctured tyre.

How to contact Kwik Fit Mobile Tyre Fitting Service?

For Motability customers, like myself, calling to arrange a home appointment for tyre replacement with Kwik Fit is easy and straightforward. The Kwik Fit mobile service contact number is 0330 123 1533.

The customer service agent will ask for your details including the vehicle registration. If it is your first time using the Kwik Fit mobile fitting service then it’s handy to make a note of the tyre size before calling as the agent will need to know this. This ensures they bring the right tyres for your particular car.

Since I’ve now used the service a few times they have my WAV tyre size recorded on their system so I don’t need to provide this information when I call now.

What happens at the home appointment?

On the day of the home appointment, the tyre technician called to let me know he would be arriving in thirty minutes.

Our WAV was parked on the driveway so we thought we’d have to move it to give the tyre technician more space to work, but he was able to gain access without any issues.

The only thing we had to do was hand over the car keys and within thirty minutes he had replaced the tyres.

How much does mobile tyre fitting cost?

It’s free for Motability customers to use the Kwik Fit mobile tyre fitting service. This is part of the worry-free motoring Motability offer with leasing their vehicles.

For anyone who is not part of the Motability Scheme will have to pay for the mobile tyre replacement service and this can be done when you buy tyres at Kwik Fit online.

Benefits of using Kwik Fit Mobile Fitting Service?

Using the Kwik Fit mobile tyre fitting service is quick, easy and completely hassle-free. It is a great service for Motability Scheme customers who are unable to get to a Kwik Fit centre or if there are accessibility issues at their nearest centre.

With the ongoing pandemic, many of us are staying at home especially those who are shielding, may also find having tyres fitted at home beneficial to limit unnecessary contact with others.

You choose the day and time that is most convenient to you. To arrange a home appointment for tyre replacement with the Kwik Fit mobile service as a Motability customer call 0330 123 1533.

  1. Great article. My first Motability car – a drive-from WAV – is going through its final conversion at the moment. I can’t wait to get driving again.

    1. Good luck, David. I waited 18 months for my van which was manufactured in Germany and then spent weeks having a lift etc installed and the final adaptations in UK.
      But the wait was SO worth it. It’s changed my life!

    2. Thank you so much, David! I’m so glad you enjoyed this article and I hope it can be helpful to you when you receive your new WAV. I bet you can’t wait! Think of all the places you will go 🙂 Let me know when you get it? What WAV are you getting? Good luck 🙂

  2. When travelling to Cornwall we had an unexpected alarm light around tyre pressures. We looked up the nearest quick fit garage, rang them and they sorted it immediately. No queue, accessible entry and wonderfully helpful. I didn’t know about this service until this emergency but I was extremely impressed. Thank you for writing this piece, as it really flags up this wonderful service 🙂

    1. Thank you for your comment, Dot. I’m really pleased this post has been helpful for you and I’m so glad you received great service when you had a problem with your tyres. Great service makes all the difference, doesn’t it? Thanks again 🙂

  3. SO useful, Emma, thank you. The contact number was recorded immediately on my phone.
    200 depots in the UK is encouraging – I was afraid that this was just a London- thing!
    Thanks again, Laura B x

    1. Aww thank you so much, Laura. I’m delighted this has been helpful to you and that you’ve popped the number in your phone. Yeah, its fantastic – I’ve used it 3 times at home here in Scotland 🙂

  4. I do think this is a brilliant service, but when I had a slow puncture they couldn’t fit me in for several days. I started by phoning the Motability rescue people (RAC). They told me I had to contact these people direct which I did. But they couldn’t come out before I had to do another (medical) journey and as I was still shielding I couldn’t go down to the depot and was stuck.
    In the end I burst into tears and the lovely woman put me back through to the RAC and basically told them to come out that night or else!
    So yes, I got there in the end, but I am concerned that people who are less forceful (or inclined to burst into tears) may be trapped at home – or wherever – until there is an appointment available.

  5. Good article.
    We’ve used Kwik-Fit twice in three years – and just made our third appointment.
    The first time was when we were on holiday in Devon and got a slow puncture. We found the phone number of the nearest depot and they couldn’t have been more helpful. They sorted us out the same morning, and were really friendly.
    The second time I had to make an appointment with my local city centre depot – which worked OK, but it was a hassle getting there and waiting.
    This third appointment I’m using the ‘at home’ service to have a nail removed from a rear tyre. My main motivation for using the mobile fitter was the lack of available appointments at any of the local depots – we’ll see how it works out on Tuesday!

    1. Hi Mike. Thank you for reading my post and for your comment – I really appreciate it. How did the at-home appointment go? I hope it went well 🙂
