Adam was great, I will recommend him to family and friends. Friendly and efficient service, reasonably priced and excellent communication at all times.
Job never started despite an original appointment and 2 re-arranged appointments, mechanic was unable to turn up at the agreed times so I cancelled. I would suggest the mechanic works on his time management skills.
This guy fixed my car while I was at work. Car is driving great. Well recommended.
I would recommend Adam to anyone who has an issue with their car. Not only did he offer the fairest quote, he also instantly provided me upon arrival with confidence that the issue would be resolved. I cannot speak highly enough of Adam's professional and courteous attitude. Thanks again Adam

Excelent mechanic, very clean, detail orientated when it comes to disassemble any car parts. He has a very wide experience and knows how to fix a lot of stuff, from Xenon headlights issues to closing door issues. He has a professional diagnostics tool (for all the card brands) so he can check your car for any faults/errors. I will work with him in the future and I will definetly recommend him for his great work, and great tips regarding my car.

Quick friendly service for urgent brake discs which needed replacing. Mechanic easy to communicate with, affordable price, would definitely use service again
Best Mechanics to date! Needed brakes doing before MOT on the Monday and I left it to the last minute, phoned them Friday evening, arranged to meet on Saturday morning. Brakes done, fantastic job, 2 of the nicest blokes ever, have recommended them to family and friends. Won't use anyone else now.
Very impressed with quick response and work carried out price was good. Although I did not receive my receipt which was supposed to emailed on to me
I had to change the time of the repair on the morning of the appointment which was no problem. Adam arrived early and did the job quickly and efficiently. Also changed a couple of bulbs which wasn't included on original quote. Would definitely recommend
Adam, was very friendly and also professional. He fully understood my needs from the offset. i would differently use his services again and refer him to my friends and family. once again thank you Adam :-)
If your car is leaning to one side when you are driving around your local area there could be a major issue, however there may also be a very simple fix which is why we have produced this guide to help you understand more about the issue.
Before we start exploring some of the most common causes of a car leaning to one side or the other, we would like to stress that you will need to take your car into a garage to properly diagnose the issue.
Only a trained professional will be able to tell you exactly what is wrong with your car!
Tire conicity occurs when there is a defect in the tire itself and comes from the result of poor manufacturing. Surprisingly, this is most common in new tires and the problem can cause major pulling to one side or the other.
So what causes the problem? Essentially there is a belt inside the tyre itself, if the belt is not aligned properly then the shape of the tyre will be different than other on your car.
Each tyre should have a bump all the way along the middle of the tyre and with a belt of out alignment, this bump could disappear and the entire surface of the tyre would therefore grip the road.
The car would then pull on one side more than the other as a result.
You will have to have a new tire fitted if this is the case and you may be able to get a free replacement if this is the problem, however it will depend entirely on the manufacturer and extent of the fault.
Tire separation may also become an issue as this causes problems between the belt and the rubber.
When air get in between the two, the tyre is at huge risk of failure and the speed of your car will be noticeably slower.
Low air pressure is one of the most common causes of a car pulling to the left or right as every tire will lose pressure over time.
Even in one tire, low air pressure can cause wheels to move out of alignment while also changing the height of the wheel itself.
It’s important that you check tyre pressure every six weeks or so and especially before long journeys as the effects of low tire pressure could have detrimental knock on effects for the suspension and other parts of your car.
It’s important to make sure that all of the tyres that are fitted to you car are in the same category and from the same manufacturer. This is because the tread of the tyre needs to be the same on all four, if you have a tyre with a different tread on one side then it may not have the same amount of grip as the others and alternatively, it may have more which would cause the car to pull to one side or the other.
It’s important to remember that any wheel alignment or tyre issue will effect the car at all times, not at certain points. For example, if your car lists to one side while you brake, then the issue is with the brakes, not alignment.
However, that’s not to say that brakes can’t cause your car to pull left or right. This can happen when a brake is ‘dragging’.
This happens when a wheel and brake pad are connecting without the driver pressing the brake pedal. A distinctive burning smell will be noticeable if you are suffering from this problem.
If the suspension in your car is damaged, this could also cause your car to lean to one side or the other.
If your car pull’s both left and right at different time’s, then it won’t be alignment that is causing the issue and there is likely to be a different issue.
One example of this could be a ‘memory steer’ which refers to how a car can pull to one side after a driver has steered hard in one direction and then turned the car straight, only to find it listing.
This is likely to be some form of wear down of parts.
It is absolutely vital that you take your car for repair as soon as you feel that your car is pulling to the left or right.
