My price didn't include the oil as my car takes synthetic oil. I checked with the garage before I went in to see if the oil suppliments charge applies to my car and it did so check beforehand as it does say on the message that an oil suppliment may apply. That way tou will knoe the exace price as they do make this clear that there may be an additional charge. On the day the garage was nice they asked for 2 hours and it was completed within that time and there's refreshments and Wi-Fi available in waiting room and local shops to loom round while your waiting. I recommend this branch.
Great service, even worked an extra 20 mins to ensure I had the car back that day.
great service and new tyre i ncluded in price

Very friendly and efficient staff. MOT carried out while I waited. Can’t fault service but the seating in the waiting room is like sitting on rhinly upholstered concrete extremely uncomfortable

Great garage - very personal service and the team try their best to accommodate all requests.
Took my car in for a service and mot all the staff were very friendly and very help full with good communication. Me and the wife will definitely be using them from now on.
Really happy with Fast Fit, had a diagnostic and subsequent wheel bearing changed. The team were super accommodating completing my work before i needed my car. The receptionist was charming, and didn't charge for the diagnostic either. overall a really pleasant experience. Will definately return!!
Reasonable price! Had my wee Twingo moted and serviced (+ a fix). Everything was arranged easily. Friendly guy called me to confirm a fix, had my car ready on time. I will go again for sure!
great service, great customer service, great advises. Thank you for waste your time listening my car's problems. I will come back again if I need you in the future!!
Amazing service, very competent mechanic (Michael), and a very helpful owner Adam. The work required for my car was quite technical but these guys went about it very nicely and got it done on time. I am going to be a regular customer now:)
Fixed my initial problem on car, they even collected it from my house as I was at work. Cost me around 30 pound, one problem was my car mats were covered in grime afterwards I don't mind the car exterior coming back dirty but the original mats are stained and I found a food box half eaten left in the rear passenger foot well. If you don't mind cleaning up food and grime stuck in your cream floor mats then this is the place to use.
Very good smart repair on bodywork of my car
Great service, booked through website first thing in the morning, car was booked in and fixed with two hours! Very friendly staff and very helpful, got me back on the road in no time. Thank you very much!

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.
