Having Starting Problems? Who Can Fix My Car will resolve the issue.
Great service from this Garage. Very personable staff great information and explanation every step of the way. As a single woman did not feel unsure of honest quote which happens frequently and in fact felt very secure throughout the repair. Will certainly use again and would definitely recommend them. Thank you VRS.
Oil change fine. Follow-up jobs to hand brake and calipers were a joke. Returned twice to get hand brake sorted and ended up having to go somewhere else. And calipers were put on rear wheels shoddily. Had to return as wheels were hot. Pins were discovered as being disintegrated on all four calipers by another garage - how they didn't notice that I have no idea. The oil change was fine though.
well where do I start with my praise for everyone at VRS REPAIR SERVICES who go that extra mile to put their customers first, after being totally ripped off quote wise by the big high street exhaust companies one of which refused my car because the manifold bolts were seized,VRS came to my help within minutes of posting on the site, cost was quarter than the high street exhaust places and an extremely fast turnaround. before paying any expensive high street fitting centre costs give VRS a call you will not be dissappointed, am so pleased to find these guys. VRS = VALUE RELIABLE SERVICE. Thank you VRS your a credit to the auto trade
Polite, friendly, job carried out.
Excellent service... seamless.
Couldn’t fault the service and actual repair by this garage. I applied for and was contacted out of hours with a quote which I thought was great. As promised my car was collected the following morning, the clutch replaced and my car delivered back to me that same day. Perfect service, repair and price. Will deffo recommend and use again.
"I couldn't recommend him highly enough"
Highly recommended! Excellent job - picked vehicle up when they said they would and returned it when they said. Also gave a lot of feedback on the general condition of the vehicle. Fast, friendly service at an excellent price. Definitely be going back for any further work when it's required.
I had Brian having a look at my car on Thursday and he was brilliant! I would chose them again.
Robin answered our message late hours of Friday night and was here by 4pm on the Saturday to fix the problem!! Needed it fixed asap for my parents to drive back home from Newcastle to wales the next day!! Highly recommend this company and will definitely use again!! Thank you
Spot on. Great communication. Honest advice and solid work. Can't fault the lad.
He did a great job. I would certainly use again in future. A+
Steve and the team at Britannia made an excellent job of my car service and MOT. Steve gave friendly and professional advice on my car and as a result it now drives like new. Cannot thank them enough. Great job at a great price. I will be back.
Steve got back to me with a quote extremely quickly and happily answered any queries I had regarding the price. for example the original quote was £160 which I thought was extremely cheap, I asked a question whether everything was included in the price but the discs were not. this meant the price increased slightly but it was still by the cheapest price by far at £225. I was most impressed when I was offered a brand new courtesy car while mine was having work done, which is a real bonus! all in all the job ended up costing £358 upon the discovery that a calliper needed replacing also, I was more than happy to pay the extra on top of the quote as I was told in good time that it was needed. I found the guys very helpful and easy to deal with and the discovery of an Easter egg and mug after picking my car up made it that bit sweeter..... nice touch!
An excellent service ... great communications, everything explained simply, flexible and a superb courtesy car. Couldn't recommend them enough!
Bang on!! Price quoted was the price I paid. They inspected my front discs and pads and said they were fine, no need to replace. Hire car was spot on and a nice little touch giving it to me free of charge for being a first time customer although the £10 charge it would have been, is a good price. Would thoroughly recommend.
Excellent customer service with Steve Martin (owner/manager). I've owned Audi A3's for many years now and used a flexible long-life service with Main Dealer, but find them very expensive these days. Britannia Auto Centre provided same service and uses Original Equipment parts/dealership recommended lubricants etc. and I was highly impressed with their efficiency and with a courtesy car provided too. Would not hesitate to use for future services/MOT's. K.Walton. 28.04.2016.

Quick turnaround as promised, nice bunch of helpful staff, who were happy to help other customers while I waited! Highly rated!
Hopefully our FAQ section has answered some of the questions you may have about getting your car to start. However, if you would like more information, we have the produced the following guide to help you understand the subject in greater detail.
There are a variety of reasons for a car not starting as there are many systems which effect the mechanism for starting an engine.
If your car won’t start it can be extremely irritating as there may be no way of knowing what the problem is. You may have a minor issue that you could resolve with a small amount of maintenance or it could be a major problem that requires a professionally trained mechanic to diagnose and repair.
If your car is not starting the best thing to do is get a mechanic to come out to where you live and take a look at the vehicle which you can do by entering your details in the form above.
If you would like to learn what the problem may be, read on!
If your car seems to be working fine on a dry day but won’t start when it’s raining, it’s likely that the distributer cap has moisture inside. Fortunately, this is not disastrous and will not require a huge amount of repair work from a mechanic. All that is involved in the service is using solvent to evaporate moisture from the unit.
If you think you can carry out this job and know where your distribution cap is, it is essential that you keep the following points in mind.
This is the easiest job to self-diagnose and complete without the help of a mechanic however the following issues should be referred onto a professional should you see these symptoms in your own car.
There is no way of knowing what could be causing you an issue so it is essential that you have a mechanic assess your car asap. If your car battery has died this will be an easier problem to resolve as all that is required is a jump from another vehicle.
If you need to jump start your car due to a dead battery, follow these instructions. However, don’t forget to have your vehicle checked by a local Sunderland based mechanic even if a jump start works.
If the engine starts, brilliant! Take a drive around Sunderland as this will recharge the battery.
If it doesn’t, go back and make sure the cables are all attached properly and let the other car run for five minutes or so.
If the car still won’t start, then it is likely your car has a major issue that you should get a mechanic to look as soon as possible.
