Like all tyre fitters they probably took out the valve to deflate the tyre and if its corroded the valve won't go back in and reseal - I have seen in on a number of occasions - strange but true
Also from a safety point of view they would have been responsible had the valve failed - can't blame them from coverig their backs in this world of litigation - cpould you
