Highly recommend this garage and Patrick. Patrick went out of his way to accommodate me, from me having to change the date a couple of times, to coming the evening before and fetching my car and dropping back to me the following evening. I had a flat tyre, and Patrick was able to repair it which I was grateful for as they were bought new a couple of months back. All in all Patrick is reliable and offers a great service of fetching and dropping off the car, which is totally hassle free and easy for me. I believe he is honest and does what he says which is great in an industry where there can be a lot of uncertainty. I had an MOT, full service and paid a bit extra for the tyre repair, hence why the price was slightly higher than the original quote.
Good service as usual will definitely use again.
Excellent service. The best I’ve recieved. I contacted the site and within 30 minutes I had a response and arranged to pick my car up the very next day and all the work was done in a matter of hours and dropped back to me, perfect! I was called up to check whether further issues could be fixed before going ahead and everything was explained in simple terms so I could understand fully. The price was insane, other mechanics charge an arm and a leg. And to make it even better, I was able to discuss some body work issues I had and will 110% be carrying out the work with this garage ! 10/10 service ! Thanks again
Happy with the work
Great service and friendly, helpful staff.
I had the change to be fixed by an amazing mechanic with a very good knowledge and very organised, totally recomend it!
A quite professional and quick service. But, there was a bit of flaw because after the repair, another issue got turned up, The guys from New Shepperton Tyres have promised to look it up, booked a day for that but never turned up, without a word of explanation.
Great service at an amazing Price. I cannot believe how Good these guys are with clutches. Highly reccomend.
Excellent service ,wonderful friendly staff ,would definitely recommend to anyone .so happy my car is running beautifully now Thankyou x
I contacted Lee from Assist Autos to carry out a diagnostic as a 2nd opinion after my car was loosing coolant and the company I purchased the car from were claiming the car was not faulty. Lee was able to find the cause of the leak and also sent a full report with photos. He also gave me advice with regards to repair over the phone and was always available when I had a question. Excellent customer service, a genuine trust worthy mechanic who know's his stuff, highly recommended!
Lee's communication is excellent. He texted me with his ETA, and was prompt, polite and efficient. The job was carried out professionally. Would definitely use again, and highly recommend.
Lee and his team did an amazing job on my car. What originally looked like a serious problem with the car was quickly and professionally handled. Great friendly team and won’t hesitate to use again if needed!
Lee is the best mobile mechanic I have ever found. His work is top notch and is very reasonably priced. The final payment was more than anticipated because he was successful in isolating and correcting various faults that were not immediately apparent. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who falls within his service range. One of his best qualities is that he always answers his mobile phone when called, unlike many other places who give a mobile phone number and never answer their phones and never return calls when messages are left. Will definitely be using him again in the future for both our cars. Excellent service - definitely an A*** from us! Well done!
Lee and his team were fantastic, turned up and just got on with it. More than satisfied with the suspension and had no issues with it since. Would 100% do business with again.
Great garage, excellent and fast work :)
Very speedy professional cambelt and anti roll bar repair and fit , left my car at4'30 and picked it up next day ,about 11
Very efficient and frI endless will use again
Great service (major service with cambelt change) with excellent communication. The paperwork received is also top notch, I am about to take a long journey and have full confidence in the car following the service by Anees. Will definitely use again.
Chose this garage because it is only a few hundred yards from my house, plus it gave a reasonable quote. They fitted me in at short notice and completed the job within a couple of hours. Friendly service, will more than likely use this garage again.
Really helpful and friendly. Explained the issues to me clearly. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent service. Great price, very quick turnaround, would highly recommend. Many thanks.
They are great!
Top service from a top, award-winning garage! Easy to see why these guys have built such a great business.
Very positive, done quickly
Excellent service. Was prompt at collecting the car when they said they would. Also called me to inform me of advisories. Was also able to pay by card using the portable card reader. Very polite and good mannered
Good service, quick turnaround
2nd time I've used All 4 Wheels as I was so impressed from the first time. Very patient with me in arranging collection of vehicle as I am not home often. Work was done to standard expected. More work was required then initially thought but they were upfront about it and new price agreed no problem.
Cannot recommend enough. AMAZING service. Always kept in the loop about what's going on. Really reliable, lovely people not just wanting to take your money and run. Will always return here for car issues. THANK YOU. Most reasonable pricing I could come across and beats all competition.
I would 100% recommend these guys. My car needed a bodywork repair. They were the cheapest quote I received by far and picked up the car from my house on a Sunday and delivered it back two days later with the bodywork looking perfect. I even got a 10% voucher off any further work!
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.
