Small garage, only one mechanic, the owner is polite and proffesional. After explaining the problem i had with the clutch we arranged an appointment for the repair. He was in touch during the repair to explain everything was needed. He called me to ask for my permition to change the oil in the transmition box which was old. I received the car in excellent contition feeling like having a new car. Bonus you get a hand wash of your car. I will deffinetely return as a customer in future.
Did not change water pump but put in new pipes and yet price was unchanged. Good customer service but price charged not commensurate to job done in my view.

I have emailed matt about my brakes, and he responded and called me immediately. I have booked an appointment and before coming he rang me to reconfirm. When he was working on the car, he explained the process from a-z and matt was polite and friendly. He did a great job, and the price was affordable. In the future, I will surely use his service again, and I fully recommend him.
came when he said he would, did the job within a hour. knew what he was doing. I would use Matt's services again
Reasonably priced very efficient I'd recommend Matt to anyone
Top service; good communication pre-Job and good response times to messages. Would use Matt again.
I was very very happy with the service Matt provided. From being easy to deal with on the phone despite how busy he was he has time to explain what's what. He showed me the complete cambelt kit prior to service and the worn out one stripped from the car afterwards. Even blasted out a locknut for which the key was lost to for nothing. Real winner and have already recommended him to family and friends.
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.
