I highly recommend Andy and automotive car clinic, I had a alternator replacement which was carried out in a speedy and very reasonable price, was happy that I was charged less than the original quote, will definitely use automotive car klinic again.
All very easily done. They were communicative and helpful and considering the work done very reasonably priced. I wold definitely use them again.
It was perfectly fine and quickly
Had recently bought my car so was in a rush to have it looked at to end my concerns. They looked at my car within a about an hour of messaging me, i arrived and they took it straight in and sorted it. was only a light issue in the end but they got it straight back on the road for me and i really appriciated it, top work!
I was very pleased, thank-you and have returned for other repairs since, as I was very satisfied with the work done and friendly professional staff. This was an unusual repair as I wanted a second-hand axle as well as the repairs. I was really impressed that the staff were able to source an axle and then offer a price that I thought was very fair. Well done and thanks again. I have a few cars in my household and we will be using your garage now :)
I used Uncle Toms a few times under their previous owners however was often unsure they had actually completed the work they were charging me for, so you can imagine I was very sceptical when they provided a cheap price on here. I had been meaning to do oil and plugs on my wifes car for a few months but havent had the time and now its getting cold/wet I didnt really fancy doing it, the price quoted with using my parts was £42, we dropped the car off, the work was done, we collected and paid £42. cant say fairer than that. I had been using an alternative garage over recent years but based on today I would happily consider Uncle Toms again under their new management
Staff very friendly they started work on my car on time they completed the job while i waited i would use them again
Fantastic service. Friendly and helpful. Great price. Was advised by main dealer I needed front disc and pads and quoted an extortionate amount. However jet wheel checked the car and I only actually needed pads which they called me to let me know and only did the work my car really needed. Will always be my first call. Many thanks guys.
Going by first impressions, Russel Gardens in Wickford may not be the sort of place where you would expect to find a modern auto centre, and especially not one that can offer you fixed MOT and Servicing prices. However, that is exactly what you get with Wickford Autocentre.

These include but are not limited to;

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.
