Arrived promptly and fixed my bumper so it could pass MOT. Friendly and knowledgeable mechanic would use again. He also pointed out a broken fog light on the car which would have failed my MOT had he not noticed it. I fixed the light myself and thanks to Jake for telling me about it.
Do not, I repeat do not use this company. They are a rip off. They charged me £100 to do nothing but damage & disable my car. They do not answer the phone. They came to do my starter motor, after the rac told me this was the problem. They took it off, left it on the passenger seat & said wasn't the problem was electrics. If this was the case why leave the starter motor on the car seat. They then wanted another £170 for electrics. Got a mobile electrician out & funny was the starter motor, which he replaced & my car is now fine. They also damaged the car, costing me an additional £20. Tried ringing & just get a/phone, left msg after msg no reply. Complete bunch of cow boys.
This company is a DISGACE they can not refurb and paint to any standard. The are CHANCERS and should not be allowed to trade. They paint over rust and they use a BRUSH instead of SPRAYING and when they do SPRAY its all over your TYERS. Their PAINT SHOP dos not EXSIST and they have not got a WORKSHOP They operate from a HOUSE AND BACK GARDEN. I FELL for a CHEAP QUOAT PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU DONT. They are a TOTAL WASTE OF SPACE and SHOULD BE BROUGHT TO BOOK. You have been WORND.
Jakes Service & RepairThere service is the worse i have ever used, they came out to the car 5 hours later then they estimated, they completed the job but did not do the job right. The brake system had no pressure whats so ever, the mechanic assured me that the car was safe to drive and a they would pressure the system back up. I emailed them in ref to coming finishing off the job which he never did, i tried calling but the never answered to my number. They left my car in a 100% undrivable condition and unsafe, so basically the ripped me off took my money without completing the job.I would not recommend using Jakes Service & Repair ever as they are very unreliable
First and last time I'll use a site like this. Whole experience was truly dreadful, communication was almost non existent (never answer their phone) and agreed appointments weren't fulfilled. At one stage I thought the car may have been stolen and was contemplating calling the police! Ended up taking the car to a proper agent for a check over as leak in water system still there. Still waiting for a receipt or invoice and we're now in 2013. Rated as 1 because a zero wasn't available! Believe this vendor is now barred from the site but just in case.... "!!!AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!

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.
