Great service, picked up and dropped off my car. Even brought a card machine to my door which made payment really easy.
Great service Loveky guy Highly recommended
Excellent service at a very reasonable price - highly recommended!
Sonny was incredible. Prompt, helpful, and explained everything fully. I will defo use him again
I needed a new starter motor on my Astra mk5, after the original one had gone bad. 13 years of operation is something... While I had done my own little investigation and diagnostic before asking for any help, the engineer also did a diagnostics check and confirmed it was indeed the starter motor, before starting the replacement job. The job was very quick, even though he was provided the wrong motor and had to go get the correct one. He was back in 20 minutes. As for the engineer, he was very polite and professional. While he was working on the car, we also chatted a lot, so that's a plus. I would recommend A Star Garage to anyone. Their competitive prices would make a good recommendation by themselves. 5/5 from a very satisfied customer. Thanks again for the quick help.
I found this service excellent. He was very professional and communicated very well. He was clear from the start and contacted me readily with any queries. I was sent a whatsapp video of the work once it was done. Very professional service and much cheaper than other quotes I was offered. Would highly recommend.
40 for labour, 50 for part, came in no time at all - really nice bloke and we will definitely use him again!!!
Great service great job great price
this garage is one of the best ive ever come across,they checked all my discs and pads and found them to be okay,nothing wrong with them ,no charge,and the mechanics were extremely cheerful and helpful
I was very pleased with SB Motors, they got my car in straight away after they contacted me with a great price for the work which was carried out to a good standard. Recommended.
Very quick to respond to messages. Job itself was done quickly and friendly staff. Charged slightly more than quoted but as my air con was completely empty I think it's understandable. Thank you
Friendly staff and excellent service. Highly recommended!
fast and responsive!
Great service speedy & good price no compliants
Gave my car a foc diagnostic check the same day. Told me what was wrong. And they fixed it at my convenience. Friendly staff And so far car running better than it has done for a while
Very impressed with the service and MOT at a very reasonable price. Quick and effective, would recommend it.
Brilliant work quick and effiecient and good guy who runs it would reccomend for any welding you might need and he seems to know his stuff on other engine components
Thorough, fast, efficient and affordable service. After I took my car in for repairs to pass the MOT, Paul rang to say the cars coolant system was running dry due to split hoses, he replaced these at a small extra cost and saved me a heap of trouble in the future. I had quotes from other garages £550+ vat and one had said not to bother. Highly recommended.

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.
We work with a network of over 10,000 mechanics and garages across the UK so we can find competitive air conditioning regas deals for you.
You can then compare the quotes and read reviews from previous customers to find the best deal in your area, before booking aircon regas online.
