Excellent service. Booked me in quickly and job was done right away. No hassle and a really friendly service. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent service and job done quickly ! A++
Great garage. I knew my car needed work so booked it in for a spring replacement after a dodgy pot hole broke it. My usual garage was full so I found this garage using this website.. ten times better than my usual garage! They found a few other jobs that needed doing and repaired at a very good price and checked everything over with me. They found jobs my garage had advised did not need doing which could have wrecked my car in the long run! Great staff who know what they're doing and fix the problems at a great price and are very fair.. have had 3 other jobs fixed by them afterwards and will use them always in the future. Thanks
Found the fault and fix the problem in less than 30 mins when other garages havent had a clue what the problem was. Many thanks. Highly recommended.
Great garage, would definitely use again..
The communication was really good and I had my booking confirmed within an hour or so. The guys at the garage were really friendly, and after my car failed it's MOT they took the time so show me the issues that cause the failure and explained the problems. They gave really me a really decent quote for the work and got the job done really quick. It's difficult to know if you can trust independent garages some times but these guys were really good.
The job was done quickly. Very polite, no unexploded bombs. Price quoted was competitive. Very pleased to deal with.
job done quickly and efficiently, at a fair and competitive price. should give you 5 stars, but I am docking 1 star for collection and delivery, some room for improvement. nevertheless I have no hesitation in recommending this garage. I will be going back myself in a few weeks when the timing belt will be due replacement.
Pleasure dealing with Zak and rest of guys. Very polite and explained what was needed on top of my service and MOT and gave advice on what I may need doing in not too distant future. Price quoted was very good. Very pleased with all aspects and the car feels perfect.
Fantastic service and very quick
Quick and reliable service. Would use again and would definitely recommend to anyone. I asked for extra work which they fit in without any fuss or delay and dropped the car back off to me in the time stated. Great job guys, thanks again.
Timing belt, water pump and interim service. Polite people, we took the car ourselves although they can pick up and bring back. Would recommend.
I have used Piston & Rotor before and when I needed work doing this time I did not hesitate to get a quotation from them. Their prices are always fair and the work done is quick and efficient. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Great service and only charged me for what needed doing (which was less than the original quote
Did a really good job. Very happy with the diagnosis and repair. Thank you
I’m always wary as a female of being fleeced with repairs to my car- increasing the price by finding ‘other faults... or did they actually do the job asked’. Well I needn’t have worried this time. Excellent service from having the car picked up and dropped back as part of the service. Job finished on time and at the price stated. Furthermore, I know the job was done, as the old parts were given to me (now I know the parts used). The gentleman who I dealt with throughout the process was polite and friendly, even when I inconvenienced him by going to the cash point. Car appears to be fine at this time. I would recommend this garage , especially to those not savvy on car mechanics/ repairs, as the price isn’t hiked, or new faults and the repair is proven as you are given the bits replaced - complete transparency.
A+ service friendly and efficient service can't fault them will be using again.
Highly recommend this place, after recently moving to the area, I needed a new garage. Glad I found this place, good bunch of lads, speedy work and booked me in at very short notice. 100% found my new garage.
Great service! Took my fiat bravo for service and MOT. The inspection revealed that the car needed some works done as front break discs and pads, one front coil spring, and new rear reg plate. Communication was great from start to finish providing an accurate quote for car parts and repairs. Staff was kind, friendly and professional and the final price was good too. I would definitely raccomend this garage and I’m certainly using in the future. I’m very satisfied and in my opinion they deserve all of the good reviews I read about them which convinced me to chose this garage! Thanks guys!
Excellent professional service received.
Great guys, friendly, very helpful. Came out in heavy snow to pick up the car and returned it once fixed. Altogether fab service. Will use again. Thanks
Despite not adding the price for a filter, the quote was extremely reasonable. Whilst it was at the garage, we asked them to have a look at other minor things. They were really friendly and helpful, what was good about them as well, was they were genuine in what needed doing to the van and didn't try anything on. We will definitely be using them again.
Very nice guys
Fantastic family garage would 100% recommend the brakes and discs where fitted quickly and the price i was quoted was the price i paid. Will use and recommend for all jobs
Had new brakes and oil/oil filter change. Lovely people, highly recommend
Great service, price and timing! Would definately recommend.
Quality service. Collected van , fixed problem and delivered back on the same day. All for the price quoted. Been a long time since I have received such quality customer service they provided. Thanks again lads.
Great service would definately recommend to all in need of mechanical car repairs. Soughted my corsa timing chain very promptly. Thanks again Barry.
Excellent experience. Amazing guys, I will certainly use them again.
Amazing work by Dexter had the job done in days then an unknown fault (not his fault) occurred and without question he took it back fixed it and kept in touch telling me how it was going. Got car back and running amazingly couldnt be any happier, 100% will be using again and even suggested to friends
An interim service is carried out on a car by a mechanic, who checks a number of key components and parts of a car.
An interim service can be extremely helpful for finding minor problems before they develop into major ones as many parts of a car will naturally wear down over time. The ones at high risk will usually be checked during an interim service.
For a driver, having an interim service carried out is a smart move as you may not realise there is a problem developing and it could end up costing you even more money down the line.
It is also recommended that you should get an interim service every 6,000 miles.
What would you prefer, to replace a pressure gauge or have your car written off entirely due to the head gasket blowing!
The difference between a full service and an interim service is the amount of parts checked. As the name suggests, an interim service will be less thorough than a full service.
However, that does not mean that a lot is checked during an interim service!
In the next section, we will list what is checked during an interim service.
If you would like to know what is included in a full service, click here to see a dedicated page.
Engine oil is absolutely vital for keeping your car is good health and serious damage will be cause to a vehicle if there is low or none existent engine oil.
This is one of the easiest things to check and will always be included in an interim service.
Brake fluid is vital for the brake system as it is responsible for applying pressure to the pads and discs when bringing a car to a halt. If there is a small leak in the braking system, the liquid will inevitably pour out. This will then prevent you from braking all together so it is vital that this never happens!
During the winter months, if a car is left outside for an extended period of time, it will be subject to potential problems. Coolant is a liquid which runs through a car engine, keeping the level of heat and friction down, similar to engine oil.
The radiator needs to have a healthy supply of coolant to operate and keep the engine cool, which is why it is vital there is also enough anti-freeze in the system as well. If the coolant freezes and you start your engine in cold weather, your engine could overheat and damage could be caused extremely quickly.
Having enough windscreen wash may not strike you as critical, however, if you are driving your car and your view of the road becomes obstructed, you need to be able to wash your screen.
Like brake fluid, power steering fluid is checked in an interim service and the reason are exactly the same. Power steering fluid is critical for being able to steer a car and if there is a leak, or even air bubbles in the system, you will be in trouble.
If the problem is air bubbles, you can pump the clutch to resolve the issue, however, if there is a leak, a bigger repair will be required.
It is a legal requirement that you have working headlights so the wiring around rear and headlights will be checked during an interim service to ensure they are not at risk of cutting out.
Windscreen wipers naturally wear down over time and lose their ability to remove dirt and water from a windscreen. A mechanic will make sure your windscreen wipers are good enough to do this during an interim service.
The most common problem car batteries have is dying however, with a jump start, this problem can be sorted. A mechanic has no way of knowing if this will happen and so they cannot check for anything specific when it comes to this potential issue arising.
However, the integrity of a car battery could come into question and they can sometimes crack, resulting in battery acid spilling into the car engine. This is a very serious issue and so the battery will be checked for signs of damage during an interim service to ensure this does not happen to you.
The charging system is responsible for keeping your car battery full of power, if it is compromised, then it highly likely that you will suffer from a regular dead battery.
The alternator can be to blame for problems with the charging system and so will be checked during an interim service.
The most common issue the exhaust system suffers from is rust and leakage of dangerous fumes. There are several parts of an exhaust system which will be checked in an interim service including the catalytic converter which is responsible for taking the most toxic and dangerous elements out of the fumes created by a car engine.
A mechanic will mainly be checking for holes and rust when it comes to the exhaust system.
It is a legal requirement to have 1.6mm tyre tread depth in the UK as this allows a car to grip the road firmly, if it is any lower, you are actually breaking the law!
This will always be checked while an interim service is being carried out, as will a pressure check on your tyres.
A brake test will be carried out during an interim service to ensure your car is able to come to a stop properly. If your car cannot do this, there is a good chance the brake pads or discs have worn down.
Surprisingly, some drivers don’t realise that their steering isn’t what it is supposed to be which is why this service is provided in an interim service.
There may be a number of issues which would cause steering issues including wheel alignment, in which case, a simple fix is available.
The shock absorbers make up a part of the steering and suspension system and are self explanatory in their role in a car.
However, their effectiveness will drop over time resulting in a less comfortable ride for passengers. The large springs will be checked during a full service for degradation.
The suspension of a car is part of the steering system and so will be rigorously checked during an interim service.
As mentioned at the top of the text, an interim service can help identify problems before they arise as mechanics are trained to be able to recognise the signs of a part having issues at an early stage.
This means you will be able to avoid a serious and potentially dangerous situations developing in the future.
The cost of an interim service will vary depending on the garage and the car itself. At the top of the page you will be able to see what the average cost of an interim service is in the UK, however, you can get free and personalised quotes for an interim service using WhoCanFixMyCar.
