Really nice guys, completed the work on my car and explained all work done. Would recommend to all.
Excellent and swift service. Thank you.
Got car MOT'd and serviced by Sloane Services. It was more expensive than the online quote, but that was because it needed two new shocks and two tyres, and fitting the shocks was a lot more labour. So it was good value, and it was done to time and they were a pleasure to deal with.
Helpful at providing advice!
Professional and friendly approch. Work properly done in really a short time. Highly recommented.
Good value for money. Paul was very friendly and he fixed my car In no time. Very nice and satisfactory experiance. I Will recommend to everybody who want good service. Thanks Paul, just in time to organise my trip.
Friendly and efficient service, wouldn't hesitate to recommend!
Paul was really helpful and had the fan and re-wiring done within a couple of hours and I picked my car up the same day. They also cleaned it for me which was an added bonus and greatly appreciated! Im sticking with this garage from now on!
Like most car owners, I have my preferred garage but tried Paul and his team when my usual place couldn't urgently schedule a repair to pass an MOT. Paul took the car in the next day, talked me through the whole process, gave me options and completed an excellent job exactly when he said he would. Would highly recommend.
Gold star service. Repaired my wing mirror at half the price of what it would've cost to replace the whole unit and worked to a high standard. Good customer service as he missed a bit of the work and came back the following day at no extra cost.
Chris came out to me to plug the diagnostic in he also took out some oil as there was too much in proper decent mechanic and a proper down to earth fella will defo be using him in the future
Excellent service, Chris turned up the next working day by 10.30am, fixed my issue but 11.30 am. I must say very efficient and mobile to get me back to work ASAP. Thanks Chris
Very good service i will use again /know he's stuff
Friendly garage, great service. Would definitely go back!
We had a very very good experience with this garage. Gary is an affable person, welcoming, efficient, fast. We received a very good price and they carried out the full service in some two hours. Very competitive rates compared to other garages.
Can't recommend this garage highly enough manager was a top bloke really helpful and got my air con blowing cold again also the good thing about it is it's right next to portobello road so while works is carried out you can have a look about instead of just sitting about waiting .
Car was picked up on time from my house and was dropped off at my work in time for me to drive home, paid exactly what the quote was and they even went the extra mile and replaced a bulb that had blown and also checked tyre pressures and fluid levels without any extra charges. Will definitely be using this garage again!!! Thank u !!
Fantastic garage. Very close to me and based in Notting Hill, this little garage was a right find. They opened on a Saturday just to do this job, the place was immaculate. Gary said that the car would take an hour for the service and it took exactly that, while it was being done I had a wander around Portobello and then sat in the waiting room using the wifi provided. He even did a free diagnostic check on my car. When I asked about other things I wanted do e on the car he had relevant model specific pictures on his laptop and talked me through the choices and costs. Very impressed, nice guy, lots to do while you're waiting, very knowledgable and fast service - already booked another job in with him.
Very pleased overall Price as quoted kept fully informed and all seems working fine
Very communicative in the run up to the appointment, good price quoted and re-quoted after I changed my request. The job was all brake discs and pads; two of the brake calipers had seized (unforeseeable). Antony managed to release one with a lot of effort, but the other had to be replaced. Again, very communicative about the extra work and parts required, and a fair additional price quoted. Also put the effort into removing rust build-up around the brakes, and some preventative maintenance to make future brake work easier. In summary, very good service at a fair price from an honest and knowledgeable mechanic.
very good job at a good price. Very pleased.
I had to cancel the appointment. Nevertheless, I have been there a couple of times and they are always so nice and friendly they are just amazing. See you next time.
Extremely professional, nice and friendly an cost-effective! They did an amazing job and the AC is now working perfectly. Definitely the place where I will take my car next time.
Great service & friendly staff. My car was booked in within 24h & they done a great job.

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.
