Very pleased with the service I received
Great and quick service
Flawless bodywork on my Audi; very reasonable price, highly recommended
They are very nice people. Repair the car next day. I will recommend this garage very highly. I will use them again
Yes i would. Quick simple. No fuss andngo the job done on time.
Excellent job, really please with the resprayed bonnet. Would highly recommend! Even gave my little car a clean inside as well! Thank you
Carl and the guys did a great job repairing my damaged bumper. They even repaired a loose fog light and a creaking driver's door as part of their service. Highly recommend!
Had clutch replacement done at an affordable price. Good friendly mechanics.
Carl is a wizard. Did an amazing job on my ford focus. Stupidly I scratched the rear passenger side door when parking. Now it's as good as new. Dropped car off Wednesday morning and picked it up Friday evening. Highly recommend this garage and will recommend to friends (and use again should i need their services). Many thanks!
Professional and helpful, repair result nearly perfect.
Two of the most professional mechanics I have met in a long time. I have already booked them to do a full service on my car. They are the ones who I will contact to do anything with my car. Thank you for getting me up and running again.
Despite their busy planning Anthony and Jay managed to come to my work place to find a temporary solution for my key problem. Two days after a new key was paired to my car. Trustfull specialists!
If i could give more stars to this tow gentleman i would. not the cheapest quote i got for a diagnostic but well worth the money as they check the car properly and not just plug in a computer and tell you what its said as previous garages including AA did, they found the problem it was just a relay not a alternator or starter motor that would cost around 400 pounds so in the long run they saved me money. I will keep your number for anything else i need many thanks Antony and Jay
The tow gentleman were fantastic. I had this problem with my car for a long time. Previously I had been to a few garages they couldn't tell me what was wrong with my car, they just plugged there diagnostic computer fixed the error codes, but still no luck I had spent a total cost of 350 pounds, trying to get my car back on the road. Anthony and Jay were so great that I just had to leave a review. Jay took his time to explain how they diagnose my car, what they done that was different they check all of the machenical side then electric after that they plug there computer. All the problems were wearing leading to my spark plugs, needed soldering and one of my fuel pipes had disconnected from filter. I did not need to leave my home as they will come to you Total cost of 70 pounds now my car is running better than ever, already looking to book a full service with them. Definitely recommend them. Thank you very much Anthony and Jay
I'm extremely happy with there work fast efficient and polite. Have used them before and now my dad needed work done and they were great got the car ready for mot were it passed with flying colours. The tow guys make a great team and kept me informed all the way of what they were doing. Definitely recommend them five stars from me

Excellent service. Would definitely recommend.
Actually,I had a nice experience with AM repairs. I took my car for servicing, met the Mechanic he told me he will use approximately 2hrs to do the work. And before the time frame it was ready and everything was fine. I will definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a car mechanic, because he kept to time and the job was good.
Very good. Will use again
Very happy with my service and MOT at AM Repairs. First time using this garage and was very impressed with the service and cost. Much more efficient that using a dealership ! Would definitely recommend for anyone looking to have a Service and/or MOT. Will use again for sure !!

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.
