Is there a quick overview of Mototile?
What is the availability/ lead time for delivery?
Where orders are received before 3pm (M-F) we aim to despatch them for delivery to you on the following working day (M-F).
Once your order is received we will phone to confirm all details. If for
any reason an item is out of stock we will inform you and
confirm an exact delivery date, if the date is not suitable you can
change your order or cancel at no charge.
Can the floor be used straight away?
Yes, unless curing time for adhesive is required (for securing the ramps), the entire floor can be used immediately it is laid.
Can I use jacks and stands on the tiles?
Yes - provided you spread the load sensibly and use a board under jacks or stands etc. A more widely spread load is safer to work with too.
What type of floors can Mototiles be laid on?
The tiles can be laid onto any hard, level surface including concrete and wooden floors, ceramic tiled floors, linoleum and vinyl. However, they are not suitable for fitting directly over carpet or carpet tiles.
What do I need to do preparation wise?
For interlocking floor tiles:
Ensure that the complete area to be tiled is clear and clean from dust.
Remove any ridges or high points in the floor and fill any substantial cracks or holes with a self leveling mortar.
For tile ramps:
When bonding tile ramps to a concrete floor observe the adhesive manufactures recommendations for surface preparation.
For tile skirting:
Ensure that you can get a good flush fit to the wall and that the bottom of the wall surrounding the tiles is clear of dust and debris.
Do I need special tools to install the Mototile system?
No. Generally no specialist tools are required, although a non marking rubber mallet makes light work of fixing tiles together. You can buy one from us. Many installations require only a sharp knife for cutting the tiles, a tape measure and a straight edge.
For curved or intricate shapes you can use an electric jig saw or a coping saw.
The ramp and skirting products require a hand saw or electric jigsaw to achieve the best finish.
Can the tiles be cut easily?
Tiles can be cut with the sort of hand or power tools you would normally use for cutting or shaping timber.
The image below shows a cutout made using a jigsaw.
How do I install the Mototile snap fast flooring system?
Like a very easy jigsaw. Or imagine laying carpet tiles that snap together and which you firm down with a rubber mallet.

Here is a tile floor installation guide.
Ensure a 3mm working gap is left around the edge of the garage / room and any fixtures so that tiles can be moved or altered in the future. The gap can be hidden by using our tile skirting.
We strongly advise the use of tile ramps on all edges where vehicles (or anything wheeled) move on and off the floor or where there is a risk of tripping

How do I clean the tiles?
Sweep or vacuum the tiles then sponge mop them with a washing-up liquid solution: use the makers recommended hand-wash concentration level. Don't use harsh detergents, polishes or scouring powders. Never use abrasives.
What about environmental impact?
The interlocking tiles are 100% recyclable and are a totally reusable product, take them with you if you move. Also if you damage a tile you can replace just one tile and not the whole floor covering.
Can I buy just one tile or a few tiles eg. to change a colour scheme?
Yes. We sell all tiles, ramps and skirting individually and not by a set sized pack.
Do you deliver outside the UK?
Not apart from the Republic of Ireland, unless the sale has been pre-arranged. Delivery costs (shown in the shopping basket) are higher for all of Ireland and the Scottish Isles - reflecting the courier charges we have to pay.
Why are your tiles cheaper than some others, have you cut corners?
Tiles are manufactured from high grade pvc materials to a full specification. They are actually thicker (7mm) than some garage floor tiles.on offer. Our prices reflect a focus on business essentials and careful cost control.
Is there a brochure I can download?
