Excellent service and job done quickly ! A++
Great garage. I knew my car needed work so booked it in for a spring replacement after a dodgy pot hole broke it. My usual garage was full so I found this garage using this website.. ten times better than my usual garage! They found a few other jobs that needed doing and repaired at a very good price and checked everything over with me. They found jobs my garage had advised did not need doing which could have wrecked my car in the long run! Great staff who know what they're doing and fix the problems at a great price and are very fair.. have had 3 other jobs fixed by them afterwards and will use them always in the future. Thanks
Found the fault and fix the problem in less than 30 mins when other garages havent had a clue what the problem was. Many thanks. Highly recommended.
Great garage, would definitely use again..
Great job done with excellent customer care attitude
The communication was really good and I had my booking confirmed within an hour or so. The guys at the garage were really friendly, and after my car failed it's MOT they took the time so show me the issues that cause the failure and explained the problems. They gave really me a really decent quote for the work and got the job done really quick. It's difficult to know if you can trust independent garages some times but these guys were really good.
The job was done quickly. Very polite, no unexploded bombs. Price quoted was competitive. Very pleased to deal with.
job done quickly and efficiently, at a fair and competitive price. should give you 5 stars, but I am docking 1 star for collection and delivery, some room for improvement. nevertheless I have no hesitation in recommending this garage. I will be going back myself in a few weeks when the timing belt will be due replacement.
Pleasure dealing with Zak and rest of guys. Very polite and explained what was needed on top of my service and MOT and gave advice on what I may need doing in not too distant future. Price quoted was very good. Very pleased with all aspects and the car feels perfect.
Fantastic service and very quick
Quick and reliable service. Would use again and would definitely recommend to anyone. I asked for extra work which they fit in without any fuss or delay and dropped the car back off to me in the time stated. Great job guys, thanks again.
Timing belt, water pump and interim service. Polite people, we took the car ourselves although they can pick up and bring back. Would recommend.
I have used Piston & Rotor before and when I needed work doing this time I did not hesitate to get a quotation from them. Their prices are always fair and the work done is quick and efficient. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Great service and only charged me for what needed doing (which was less than the original quote
Did a really good job. Very happy with the diagnosis and repair. Thank you
Brilliant, speedy response and quick job well done for a good price. Thanks again.
I would definitely recommend Paul. My vechicle was off the road, Paul turned up with the new part and had it back on the road in 20 mins. I will be using Paul again.
Great price and mobile. Definitely recommend
Arrived on time, very professional and courteous, and efficiently got on with the job. Delighted with work done. What's more, this was in the evening in sub-zero temperatures. I would definitely recommend and use again. Thanks Matt
I’m always wary as a female of being fleeced with repairs to my car- increasing the price by finding ‘other faults... or did they actually do the job asked’. Well I needn’t have worried this time. Excellent service from having the car picked up and dropped back as part of the service. Job finished on time and at the price stated. Furthermore, I know the job was done, as the old parts were given to me (now I know the parts used). The gentleman who I dealt with throughout the process was polite and friendly, even when I inconvenienced him by going to the cash point. Car appears to be fine at this time. I would recommend this garage , especially to those not savvy on car mechanics/ repairs, as the price isn’t hiked, or new faults and the repair is proven as you are given the bits replaced - complete transparency.
A+ service friendly and efficient service can't fault them will be using again.
Highly recommend this place, after recently moving to the area, I needed a new garage. Glad I found this place, good bunch of lads, speedy work and booked me in at very short notice. 100% found my new garage.
Great service! Took my fiat bravo for service and MOT. The inspection revealed that the car needed some works done as front break discs and pads, one front coil spring, and new rear reg plate. Communication was great from start to finish providing an accurate quote for car parts and repairs. Staff was kind, friendly and professional and the final price was good too. I would definitely raccomend this garage and I’m certainly using in the future. I’m very satisfied and in my opinion they deserve all of the good reviews I read about them which convinced me to chose this garage! Thanks guys!
Excellent professional service received.
Great guys, friendly, very helpful. Came out in heavy snow to pick up the car and returned it once fixed. Altogether fab service. Will use again. Thanks
Despite not adding the price for a filter, the quote was extremely reasonable. Whilst it was at the garage, we asked them to have a look at other minor things. They were really friendly and helpful, what was good about them as well, was they were genuine in what needed doing to the van and didn't try anything on. We will definitely be using them again.
Very nice guys
Fantastic family garage would 100% recommend the brakes and discs where fitted quickly and the price i was quoted was the price i paid. Will use and recommend for all jobs
Had new brakes and oil/oil filter change. Lovely people, highly recommend
Hopefully our FAQ section has answered some of the questions you may have about MOT services in Manchester. However, if you would like more information, we have the produced the following guide to help you understand the subject in greater detail.
An MOT is a service provided by garages which every car is legally required to have carried out.
A cars roadworthiness will be checked during the MOT as each major component is inspected by a trained professional. A garage has to have authorisation from the DVSA to carry out an MOT as they have to meet the minimum requirement to carry out the inspection.
You don’t need to take your car for an MOT for three years if you buy and register it brand new, however as soon as the three years are up, it is a legal requirement that you take your car for an MOT annually.
Below we have included some useful information on what is checked during your MOT as well as things you can do to increase your chances of passing at the first attempt.
The exhaust system is made up of several parts and components which all need to be checked individually. The main issue that mechanics will be looking out for is leakage of fumes or liquid, as these are the most common issues associated with the exhaust system.
There is very little you can do to help your car pass an MOT if there is a problem with this system as a hole cannot be blocked up unless you are a trained professional.
The fuel system will also get checked for leaks however, by checking that the tank cap is sealed properly, you may be able to avoid failing your MOT for a minor issue.
The emissions of a car must fall below specific legal limits which means that if your car produces too much carbon monoxide or hydrocarbons, it will fail its MOT.
You can increase your chances of passing an MOT by addressing the problem before having the service carried out as it is easy to diagnose a problem with your fuel emission levels.
If your exhaust emits excessive blue or black smoke when the engine is switched on and while driving, there is a high chance that there is an issue. By addressing it early you can avoid failing the MOT test.
One in ten cars fail their MOT due to tyre issues. The mechanic will be checking the tread of the tyre when carrying out the MOT as well as looking for damage such as lumps, bulges or tears.
A tyre tread should be at least 1.6mm and be the correct type as they need to be able to maintain the speed and weight of the car while its being driven.
You can use a tread depth gauge to check if your tyres are safe to drive on and whether they will pass the MOT, if the tread is less than 1.6mm, your car will fail.
It is also important to ensure your tyres are fully inflated and the pressure is correct as this is another issue which will likely result in failure.
The parts being checked will consist of windscreen wipers, windscreen, wing mirrors, rear view mirror and windows. It will be obvious that you will fail your MOT if your view of the road around you is impeded.
This could be caused by broken or missing mirrors as well as cracked or heavily chipped windows.
Your rear view mirrors and wing mirrors must be able to move while remaining secure to provide a driver with an adequate view of the road. The wipers and washers are also included in checks as they must be able to clean the windows effectively.
You will fail your MOT if there is damage or an obstruction in your windows bigger than 10mm within the immediate viewing area and 40mm anywhere else.
You can improve your chances of passing your MOT by making sure you buy new wiper blades at least once a year and thouroughly checking all of your windows.
You should also ensure your screen wash reservoir is fully topped up as it will be checked during the MOT.
A wide ranging inspection will be carried out with the body, engine mountings, seats, doors and chassis. They are required to be completely free of erosion and cannot have any sharp edges which could cause injury.
You must also have your registration plates attached to your car which need to be visible from 20 meters away.
Your car should also be shown to display a vehicle identification number (VIN) which should be etched onto the body or chassis.
The speedometer must also be fully secure and able to light up.
Every seatbelt in the vehicle must be fully functional as this will be checked rigorously by the inspector.
Almost a third of all MOT failures are due to light, electrical or reflector failure. The front, rear, brake, fog, indicator, registration plate and reflectors must adhere to the following standards;
If one of the bulbs in your car breaks you can buy a replacement relatively easily which is something you should do if you are due an MOT.
Make sure to consult your owners handbook before buying a bulb to discover the correct unit.
The horn on your car must also be full working order and be able to deliver a strong uniform note which can be heard by another driver on the road.
The battery in your car will also be checked for leakage and stability within the engine.
Wiring will be inspected for wear and tear and cannot be at the point of breaking.
If you have a towbar for a trailer, the socket will be checked as it must be able to send power to the indicators on the trailer itself.
The mechanic carrying out the MOT will be inspecting the condition of the steering wheels by pushing the steering system in numerous directions as well as assessing the system for damage on specific components.
If your car has a locking devise, this will also be checked when the vehicle is stationary and the engine is not running.
If you have power steering, there must be a correct amount of fluid in the reservoir.
The suspension on your car will be checked visually as the springs and shock absorbers will be inspected for corrosion, distortion or fracture.
We have an in-depth page dedicated to steering and suspension which you can access by clicking here.
The overall condition of your brakes and all of the components that make up the system will be inspected thoroughly.
A specific break test will be performed to ensure your car has the correct stopping power to be on the road.
