Excellent service from Patrick! Charged me exactly what was quoted for MOT and service, including pick up and drop off. Very friendly and responsive through calls and texts. No wonder the company has such good reviews, highly recommended!
Very friendly service, very competitive price, great service of picking up delivering, highly recommend.
Superb from start to finish. The best customer service service I've had from anyone in a long time. Price very reasonable, would highly recommend and will be using in the future. Thanks.
Dan, 2006 Audi A6 3.0 TDI Quattro. I needed a new clutch, dual mass flywheel, and alternator belt. After inquiring at a number of different garages, ACS was able to offer the lowest price and the quickest service. Patrick collected and delivered my car at no extra cost. The job was completed to an excellent standard. The parts used were all genuine OEM (LUK), and Patrick was kind enough to talk me through the changes and help me get accustomed to the new clutch. Overall, I would greatly recommend ACS.
Patrick provided an excellent professional service and nothing was too much to ask. I had the cam belt and timing belt change. An engine EDT deep clean. Change of oil filter and fuel filter. I thought the price was good and would highly recommend Patrick.
Very nice guy, kept to the quote provided. Work completed on the drive which was very helpful rather than having to take to a garage. Polite friendly, great knowlege, very happy with work carried out will use in future.
Lee was great, turned up at the house on time with all the parts and carried out the work in a few hours and I could pay by card. No complaints, great guy and a great service.
Very friendly and helpful. Would definitely use again.
Great service. Final price exactly as quoted. Will use definitely use again. Thanks Lee
I have no hesitation in recommending Assist Autos. The convenience of them collecting the car and bringing it back 'all done' was something I wish I'd known about when I was working and would have saved me using up precious annual leave to get the job done. A really helpful service and well worth the money.
Prompt communication from start to finish! Very clean job and on time delivery as promised. Will surely use them again. All the best.
Excellent and thorough service. Comprehensive walkthrough of outstanding issues.
Went very smoothly and got some good advice.
Thank you so much guys ! Great job and done very quickly ! Thank you!
Great customer service very prompt professional and kept me well informed throughout the day. Did a great job on the car. Anees is a great owner will definitely be returning
Very happy with the service I received, MOT done and few minor issues resolved. Well within the promised timeframe. Second time using Eagle Autos and will continue doing so.
Very happy with the service and honest advice. Even though the initial issue turned out to be a bigger issue that they were unable to fix. A suspected puncture that turned out to be a shredded inside tyre. I was advised of another local garage where I could get my tyre replaced and he offered to call and arrange for me to go down there. Very appreciated even though they didn't get my business. Would definitely recommend and deal with them in the future, hard to find honest garages these days.
PERFECT AND FAST WORK! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
Thank you guys- Kyle and Roberto. Great garage, work done to a professional standard. Highly recommended, would use again, good dealings.
Excellent Service. Quote was accurate and verified. Work was done quickly and to a very high standard. Would use again. Highly recommended.
My clutch went on Wed night on the M25 First thing Thursday Kaz rang me from the garage and arranged to collect my car, fixed the clutch within 4 hours Kaz and his team kept me well informed of the costs and work, my car was brought back at lunchtime today. Great service, honest and reliable Kaz and team very professional Will recommend this garage 100% Thank you Dianne
The job was a clutch replacement in a Rav4 four wheel drive model, this is a big job as the transmission needs to be dropped to access the casing and I asked for quotes thinking that it would probably be cheaper to change the car. Shepperton Tyre and Auto Centre quoted me far less what I was fearing the job would cost, including new parts and collection and return of the car (significant when it's an all day job). In fact it was almost a hundred pounds less than a certain nationwide budget chain. In fact the quote was so good I was suspicious that it was too good to be true a d there was going to be a catch. Speaking to Kaz at Shepperton went a long way to reassure me as did the other reviews on this site to which I am happy to add my voice. The work was done in a timely manner, for exactly the agreed price (they also pointed out a potential issue they noticed and corrected it for me for a very reasonable additional cost but I was under no pressure to have this done if I didn't want to), the car is massively improved, and every interaction with Kaz and his team was cheerful and friendly. I will have no hesitation in using this garage again and I'm already recommending them to my friends.
Fantastic...came picked up my Car and replaced my clutch in very good time. They seemed friendly and very knowledgeable, would recommend and use their services if needed.
was very happy with the job, they gave a 2-year warranty as well
Great job, very well done.
Took a lil longer then expected but they are great guys and i guess thats the reason they are so busy. Recommend expansion. Great service and repairs done to great satisfaction.
good work done thank you had over jobs done
Excellent experience dealing with All 4 Wheels, what a pleasure. I rang the garage on Thursday to enquire about a cambelt change, the car was picked up from my workplace on Friday morning and returned to me before the end of the day with all works completed - very swift service! The final price was a little more than estimated due to a new fan belt being needed but this was all explained over the phone before they went ahead with the works. All in all a 5 star service and would recommend these guys to anyone.
Excellent work, effort put into the job with a very reasonable price. Also you will get 10% off voucher on next job which is definitely worth it. I will efinitely recommend it. Very satisfied customers here.
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.
