Wheel Alignment at Virginia Tire & Auto of Bristow

Hi, I’m Ben, the manager at the new Bristow location and I wanted to take a quick moment to invite you in our shop and show you two pieces of equipment that are brand new to our company.

The first one is going to be the Hunter Quick Alignment Check.

This machine consists of two different pieces. The first one is a quick tread check, which actually uses lasers to check the tread depth on all four tires as we drive over, and the second piece as you can see behind me is the alignment check.

Today, Oscar will be doing the quick check alignment check and let’s go ahead and get started. So Oscar’s gonna drive the vehicle and the first thing he’ll do is drive it over the lasers that check the tread depth.

Now Oscar is going to get out and attach targets to each of the four wheels. This will allow the alignment checker to read the total front toe and total rear toe, rear camber and front camber.

Oscar’s gonna go ahead and attach all four heads. He’s gonna roll the vehicle forward, after which he’s going to grab the VIN scanner. This will allow us to quickly enter the vehicle into the database and check the specifications in which the vehicle requires the alignment to be in.

All in all, the process takes about 45 seconds to a minute to complete. The best part is our customers can actually watch everything live on the TV right behind me, so there’s a little bit more visibility into what we’re doing with their vehicle. And we’re all set.

Thanks for watching and thanks for checking out our new Hunter Quick Check quick alignment check.
