The aircon service done was excellent with a competitive price. Good job!!
Great service and friendly staff
it is very good price
Excellent customer service
Garage completed all the work I asked and also did a safety point check on the brakes etc. It had an oil leak which showed up and they replaced the filter which was rusted. All in all, nice people and a good service. Will use them again!
I couldn't be any more impressed with this place. I had a very noisy exhaust but I couldn't see any holes underneath. I was expecting to need the exhaust replaced. Richardson's quoted me £185 which I would have been happy to pay. It turned out a joint had come lose so I was only charged £45. Excellent customer service. Trustworthy mechanics. Would recommend 100%
Prompt and efficient service.
Great service and very professional. I will recommend and use again
Work completed on time and the details clearly explained. Polite and workmanlike, will definitely use for car servicing in the future
The Service I received was first class and I was kept informed right from booking in to when the job was completed. They even threw in a free loan car while my car was being repaired. I will certainly use them again.
Great service, work completed quickly. Would highly recommend!
Excellent friendly service. Efficient. Vehicle checked at time agreed. Advice given and quote provided for what was needed to repair vehicle within time scale agreed. No hesitation in recommending 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.
