Good service, took a little longer than they said, but overall would rate them good.

Most helpful, polite and welcoming team at the F1 Auto Centre. Made a really professional and good quality service on Air Con. Plan to go back there for all my Servicing work now on all 3 cars.
Great service. Would use again.

Excellent comms and service. Quick to answer/return calls, kept up to date in all matters, always felt that I was getting 5* service. Had a small problem (squeal/rubbing noise) which they resolved quickly. Fully recommended.
Nice Customer service and get a clear idea about car's problem.
great service, came out the same evening and faultless work! highly recommend
Best service I have ever had a fantastic mechanic and I will be using TST for all my vehicles in the future. Well recommended
Liam was great, he came out on a Sunday morning and worked around my schedule, this saved me taking the morning off work to get my brakes and discs changed. Advised that I didn't need the discs at this stage but would fit them free of charge in the future. The calliper was sticking and he eased that off free of charge. Had a chat with Liam, he has been working for himself for just over a year, definitely a chap to get in contact with if you are in trouble and need help fast. Professional and concious chap.
I was abit skeptical about using this site, didn't want some "joke" to turn up clout the car take the money and not do the job, however, I'm so glad I did use this site, TST MECHANICS are brilliant and I highly recommend them, the job was priced cheap and even though it took longer to do than originally estimated, the price didn't increase, he was with me within half an hour of posting the job, had already knocked 1 ball joint out then we agreed for him to return the next day, he was on time and eager to work, professional and helpful. He did return and did the job to a high standard and I'm very pleased, so happy days.
Good friendly reliable service
Air Con re gassed while I waited, very efficient service, price and nice people, thoroughly recommend this garage!

The majority of modern cars have air conditioning fitted as standard as it is vital for making the ride in a car comfortable for passengers.
An air conditioning system works by using refrigerant gas to push air through several components in the aircon system and then into your car.
Whether its freezing cold or boiling hot, it’s your air conditioning which makes driving in such conditions bearable, so it’s important to look after the system!
Surprisingly, over 10% of air-con gas escapes through the system each year. This means that the power of the system drops significantly over time. However, your air conditioning will not be checked during an MOT or service which is why it’s important that you make an effort to have it checked specifically.
Car manufacturers recommend that cars should have their air con recharged (Regassed) every two years.
Even if your car is new it should be something that you have checked as your cars performance could be significantly affected.
This is because the engine will have to work harder to produce cold air if there is an issue with the air conditioning meaning more fuel will be required to make the system work.
If the system has not been recharged in two years, the drop in engine performance will be noticeable.
As soon as you realise a drop in the power of your air con you should take the vehicle in for repair. If there is an unpleasant smell being emitted, this is another sign that the air con needs looking at.
The job of recharging air conditioning is not complex and will not take long.
The mechanic will carry out a leaks check on the air con system before the repair work, to ensure the job can be carried out without causing damage to the car.
As soon as this is complete, the technician will be able to recharge the system.
The mechanic carrying out the work will first remove old refrigerant from your car as well as the current gas and lubricant.
They will then replace it with new gas and lubricants.
The job will also typically include an entire system clean out which is carried out to remove any bacterial build up.
This is often the reason for a strange or unpleasant smell being emitted from the air conditioning which is why it is important to have this job completed every two years.
The whole process should take around 45 minutes as there are no new parts required for install.
The air conditioning in your car should be noticeably improved after a regas if you haven’t had one for over two years.
If you want to ensure your air conditioning stays in tip top condition, make sure to use it regularly as this the compressor will stay lubricated.Finding a mechanic you can trust to do a good job and charge a fair price, is not always easy, which is why we simplified the process.
