Very efficient and hassle free- had a full service and MOT done for the first time with them and will definitely going again next time around! Highly recommend it!
Once again quick and friendly service. Interim pre-MOT service for £99 and replaced a bulb for cost price. Spotted some advisory issues that I'll be putting in for repair post MOT.
Garages are like barbers, when you find one you stick with them forever :) Went there for first time to do a full service on my bmw 1 series. The staff were very friendly and professional, they also done an engine flushing which made a huge difference on my car's performance. I will recommend the garage to my friends.
Amazing service, car fixed same day. Members of staff were really thoughtful and experienced!
Fantastic Job from Gavin, I will definitely going back again, very professional and friendly. Highly recommend to anyone!!
The best garage in the UK.. Affordable prices with the best service.. thanks a lot Carl, Winston and Ringer.. you guy are angels
Excellent service as I was pulling up the mechanic met me roadside and asked if I was the client . Had a quick look at the problem went inside to do a little handy man work and came back five minutes later to fit the new indicator . Couldn't recommend enough !!!
was happy with the service
Great service and a good job.
Carl did an amazing job. Great customer service also.
Team was helpful in identifying the problem and fixing it and was able to pick up the car in a few hours - would use them again
My car was returned late and without my service logbook. The garage acknowledged they had forgotten to put the logbook in the car and agreed they would return it but 6 weeks later and still nothing and they are not responding to my messages. As I have not owned the car from new and have no other record of the service history, my car has now been significantly devalued.
Top notch mechanics they know what they are doing, once I spoke to them about my concerns I was more than happy to leave it with them I would definitely recommend
Good guy would use again
Was able to diagnose the problem, very good service - would highly recommend!
Recommend this garage fast repair and lent me a car while my car was fixed
Good garage. Explained what the problem was and sorted it out. 4 stars as they have to do the other door. The one they fixed was done very well
Service and mot .failed mot but was fixed and ready the same day.
It's intimidating walking into a garage full of men being a woman, I am happy to write this review. The team was polite and professional. MOT was done within a timeframe, but parts were needed which was explained, the price agreed, ordered and fitted. Courtesy car was given. Excellent service was provided as my car was delivered to my house, keeping me out of the rain. Yes, I would recommend this garage.
Very friendly and professional garage. Can't recommend enough?

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.
