good service done it the day i wanted , no problems
Excellent service with professional attitude, would definitely recommend to anyone
Great communication from Anees, he even sent a video to show what was wrong. Very reasonable for parts and labour, would use again.
Was told by green flag that I needed a new alternator .when the garage checked it there was nothing wrong with it . It was the battery that needed replacing.i was very pleased with the service from the garage and will be using them again.Alan
Anees was very speedy and very accommodating as I could not drop my car off in their working hours. They also gave check over and some additional work was needed but a very reasonable price. Would 100% definitely use again
Good quickly job. Highly recommended to anyone who need car repairs. Ralph
Had to have bodywork repair & indicator light replaced. Sam was very helpful and on collecting my car 3days after, I was very impressed., not only with the repair but my car was polished & hoovered inside as well as washed outside, tyres were also cleaned & polushed. They even put a car fresh on my rear view mirror. They weren't the cheapest quote as the cheapest was a distance away & had no reviews re. bodywork whereas Kingston Motors were near to me & had 2 positive reviews re. bodywork. Was worth paying the difference of £30. I would use them again. You just need to call them, they don't have a Receptionist so I wouldn't depend on them getting in touch.... Not a problem, after all they're busy.
Fast response and work carried out to a good standard. Initial issue was found to be wrong and full work completed. Reasonably priced in comparison to others looked at. Job well done.
I was very pleased with this garage and would certainly recommend and use them again. I found them to be honest and competitively priced. They were also polite, friendly and not in the least pushy. Two small problems occurred and not only were these resolved extremely promptly but l also received some money off my bill. I left them thinking l would trust them completely.
We arrived at 08.30 with our Ford c-max for a new clutch we were told it would be ready for 5pm very reasonable price as per quote and a good job done car ready on time will use this garage again thanks guys
Once booked in, I dropped of my car just after 9am, and got a call at 11.30am to advise it was all done and ready for collection. It was a relatively simple job, but the main dealer did not want to do it as the model/car was 'too new' for their technicians (Ford Mustang 2015), but smallbills garage took on the job for a reasonable price and I am more than happy with the end result. The new lamps look great and there is nothing to suggest an after market fit. Thanks for a great job at a reasonable price.
Perfect results on the paintwork, easy doing business, and a great price. Highly recommended
Own an e46 with a few issues and the guys did what I asked for quickly and perfectly. Will be using them again. Thanks a lot
Price quoted included VAT, however actual price added this on according to customer.
Helped me to find out the reason why the aircon did not work properly, ordered the new part, fitted and works fine. At the same time brake discs, pads has been changed. Good small garage with clear straightforward attitude. Thanks, Alex
Very efficient and friendly service
Very good customer service
Brilliant service provided. Air con broke down on a Saturday afternoon. They were happy for me to come down just before 4pm and had me out within an hour. Perfect!
Good customer service and communication during the MOT process. Recommended a couple of additional items based on the cars service history which led to the cost increase. Rung for authorisation prior to any additional work and would highly recommend.
Excellent! Very courteous staff, MOT done as per time slot planned, quick communication when arranging the appointment. Definitely recommended!!
Very helpful. Explained clearly all work that would b carried out Also of any extras that may incur.. Didn't try to rip me off. Which I've experienced elsewhere. Will b going back.
GREAT SERVICE THANK YOU
Excellent, courteous service with a quick turn around. What more could you ask?
Good and quick job. Recommend. Thanks
Mark was absolutely brilliant.My car was fixed and back on the road within 36 hours,he explained everything that needed doing very clearly and all costs. He is extremely polite and courteous,very highly recommended.
Thanks, Mark, so much for helping me out. Friendly and helpful, good communication too.
My car's air con compressor was broken, did not charge me any labour to diagnose it.
Friendly and helpfull. I was unable to get to them for the work, they were ok with that. Will return in the future.
They did a full test on my A/C and diagosed the problem within 20 mins. I would recommend them in the future.
I was pleased overall. The unit was quite interesting, I think he was just starting out. However the service he provided was great. He was very social, put me at ease and talked through what was wrong with my car.

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.
