Good service Fast and efficient and well done job.
Patrick collected mum’s car which was not running and fixed what the AA had said was wrong with the car. He advised us every step of the way, updating us and keeping us informed at all times on progress and further problems with the car which were caused by mum’s break down. The final price was for lots of work: new cam belt, new valves, head gasket, head bolts, timing belt kit, water pump, oil & filter and cylinder head. Patrick is a very amenable and honest man, only doing what was needed to the car as he came across problems. Mum’s in her 70’s and her car is her lifeline and we’re all completely satisfied with Patrick’s work, he even returned the car to mum and took her through everything helping her to feel confident that the car was ok to drive again. His communication, honesty and attention to detail is a refreshing change! BIG THANKS TO PATRICK AND HIS TEAM
Patrick the owner was extremely helpful and explained why I needed new break discs as MERCEDES had informed me. 1 min walk from the garage was a large Tesco with an intergrated Costa. I waited here whilst the work was carried out as the garage has no waiting room. The work took only 1 hr which was amazing. Patrick then explained to me that the new breaks will take a few hundred miles to wear in. The price was excellent for this job, but I have to admit the service was even better. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.
very friendly and reliable service, very honest and upfront
Patrick came by promptly to replace my rear brake pads and discs first thing in the morning and had my car back by 12pm. The price was great and service was fantastic. Will be doing my MOT in mid January with these people, very reliable people.
Effortless booking process and top notch mobile mechanic. The advantage of not having to leave my home but get the same service (if not better) than a traditional garage cannot be emphasised enough. Clutch replacement carried out with the minimum of fuss and the car is back on the road. Would I use again? No brainer! Cheers chaps
These people are professionals who know what they're doing, would highly recommend.
Lee was extremely competent and turned around my MOT within a single morning so I could do the school run the same afternoon. He was upfront with prices, recommended a place where I could get my bodywork fixed, and was prompt, tidy and courteous. Have recommended him to family. The only recommendation would be to call the client to confirm the job the day before, because he came on a Monday and I thought it was the Tuesday. But it worked in my favour, so I didn’t mind.
Did a great job, brilliant price and an honest chap. Definitely recommending Assist Autos A+++
Great mechanic definitely recommended. Brilliant price and service and a nice chap A+++
Quality service, Roberto - man of his word and honest (something very hard to find in mechanics and garages!). This is my second visit and was pleased with both visits.
The garage owner was very polite and courteous . he made it easy for me to collect my car. The job was done very quickly. i understand he made every effort to repair the exhaust without any new parts but it was not possible hence the new part. He waived the diagnostic charge . Very pleased, new muffler supply and fit. In addition no hard sale or pushing for additional work..
Would recommend definitely. Friendly and food customer service and would definitely go back
Excellent service, thanks to Roberto and team for the works completed today. Dropped my car in the morning for DPF cleaning to determine problem with the engine losing power. Picked car up later same day. Car running perfectly again. Very pleased with the works completed. Well done.
Excellent service. Dropped by Saturday morning for diagnostic tests to determine problem with stuttering engine, 45 mins later call to say what was wrong (needed to replace cylinder coils and spark plugs) and price to fix immediately. Picked car up later same day (garage kindly worked past normal closing time to complete job). Car running perfectly again. Very pleased. Well done.
Very friendly, efficient and explained all the extra costs

Great service, sorry took long to leave the review, he even washed the car as well.
It was a very good service provided to me by car Technic. Full Valet was done with the car service at no extra cost. Another amazing service provided by them is, Danial collected the car and drop it back. I would certainly recommend this Garage. Excellent.
At first I was a bit anxious about using another garage for the first time, but it turns out that I am really pleased with both the way I was treated the excellent communication throughout the entire process. He came early to pick my car up, he even squashed me in for an appointment. I am very happy with the results, I definitely will recommend him. The car drives really well, he cleaned it inside and out it was done professionally that I nearly didn’t recognise my car. Will definitely recommend friends, family and co-workers. Thanks Daniel! And definitely I will Be seeing you again soon.
Amazing service, highly recommended! Daniel is a great guy and very professional.
Where can I start!? Mike was extremely helpful from start to finish and went out of his way to help get my car sorted before my birthday and a funeral( all within 3days) I’m very happy with the service I received and have already recommended Mike to my friends. Huge life saver, thank you very very much!
really pleased with the service from Mike and team after my smart car pure 2003 stopped working. Back up and running, thanks Mike. Definitely knows his smart cars!
Thank you for an excellent and prompt service, Highly recommended would defiantly use again.

Diesel Particulate Filters are extremely important to have in your vehicle. The filter captures and stores exhaust soot in order to help reduce emissions coming from diesel cars.
Ever since 2009, the Euro 5 standard has been enforced, a rule which ensures all new diesel cars must have particulate filters fitted.
These pieces of equipment were introduced in an effort to reduce the particle and soot emissions from diesel engines. Diesel Particulate filters (DPF) trap soot before it blows out of an exhaust and like any filter, it requires cleaning in order to maintain performance.
Fortunately the filter itself has self-cleaning capabilities known as regeneration.
There are two types of regeneration which can be carried out on your car.
This process happens automatically while the exhaust is at a high temperature which will usually occur when you are driving down a motorway or quickly down an A-road. However, as many vehicles aren’t always being driven at high speeds, an alternative system for regeneration exists.
This method of cleaning the DFP is controlled by an engine management computer and happens automatically when the filter reaches 45% of its limit. The process is initiated by the fuel injection being increased which makes the exhaust heat up and therefore clear the filter. However, if your drive is a short one and the process tries to initiate, it will not be able to properly clear the filter, in this eventuality, the warning light in your car will come on.
A drive of about ten minutes at a speed of around 40mph should be adequate for the process to be successful.
If these issues are effecting your car it is almost certain that you will need your filter replacing which is likely to cost upwards of £1000 including diagnostic and labour time.
And if you were thinking of saving all of that time and money by removing the filter completely, think again, it’s illegal to remove the DPF.
The Department for Transport states that it is an offence to remove the filter or modify the piece of equipment in a way which would result in the vehicle failing air pollutant emission standards. Breaking the law will result in the vehicle not being road worthy so if you are ever offered to have your filter removed, make sure to keep this in mind.
Every MOT now includes a check for the DPF and a smoke test from the exhaust so there is very little chance of getting away with removing the filter.
If you need to have the filter regenerated manually, you must take your vehicle to a trained professional immediately. They will initiate a process where the exhaust is heated up to a point where regeneration happens and soot is cleared from the filter.
