Great garage, excellent and fast work :)
Very speedy professional cambelt and anti roll bar repair and fit , left my car at4'30 and picked it up next day ,about 11
Very efficient and frI endless will use again
Great service (major service with cambelt change) with excellent communication. The paperwork received is also top notch, I am about to take a long journey and have full confidence in the car following the service by Anees. Will definitely use again.
Chose this garage because it is only a few hundred yards from my house, plus it gave a reasonable quote. They fitted me in at short notice and completed the job within a couple of hours. Friendly service, will more than likely use this garage again.
Great and professional service. I will recommend.
Steve at barnside is a decent honest chap. Highly reccomend this garage. Used them before and will always use going forward. 10/10
Top garage, always professional and friendly and provide really good service, especially considering the low prices.
They were great, nice people
Just wanted to say how impressed I was with your service from start to finish, thank you - replaced cambelt & water pump. Collected/returned my car for free.
Very good and professional garage i Recomend them strongly
Friendly, efficient, did the job quickly
Fanastic, they did a really good job, car running perfectly
Excellent service, friendly staff. Will definately use them again
.Well I think SMS gives new meaning to the term “customer service”. One word - “outstanding”. Swift, efficient, friendly and responsive. AND they pick and deliver the car from/to your door. So refreshing to have such a positive experience. Good value (competitive) pricing too. Thanks guys.
Quick, polite, prompt, knowledgable, fair. Very good.
Fantastic, very convenient as he came to my house to do the repair, have since recommended to my friends!
Ghashai was great, would use again!
This is the most sincere mechanic i've met. He not only fixed the problem on my car, but also, didn't tried to sell me a new battery. He is very honest, and i was very happy with the service. I personally recommend this professional.
great mechanic new what he was doing, cant thank the man enough, 10+***** many thanks
Picked and delivered within the time as agreed with Jon. Full service and changed brake oil. Very competitive with price. Happy and highly recommend this garage.
THE PRICE WAS VERY VERY GOOD AND THE JOB WAS BETTER THAN THE GARAGE THAT DID THE CLUTCH ON THE CAR FOR 500.00 WILL USE AGAIN THANKS STEVE
Would highly recommend. managed to squeeze me in under short notice. great price, great job.
Jon was very polite and punctual, came to the house and diagnosed something different to what I thought was wrong. A blocked breather pipe and filter, also replaced 6 glow plus and power pack and some sort of sensor. Hope it's all sorted, only time will tell.
Jon came just hours after I contacted him, very helpful, great job and helped identify some other issues. Will 100% be contacting Jon again when work is needed and already recommended to friends. Great service!
5 star service and communication. Would happily go here again. Car initially failed MOT due to a broken coil spring. Rates are very competitive and fair. Work carried out to a high standard. I used their collection and delivery service so no need to hang about at the garage waiting. As I wasn't there they sent me pictures of the broken coil spring. Car was only gone for a few hours and delivered straight back to my door. Very impressed overall. Was nervous to start with as my usual garage couldn't fit me in but after seeing some reviews decided it was worth a risk and will happily use them again.
GREAT SERVICE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND? SAVED ME A FORTUNE FOR WORK CARRIED OUT.
The price was for two old cars, one 9 yrs, one 10. The Volvo we knew had a lot of repairs after a year of heavy mileage across country. The price was better than Volvo or any garage chain and the service was excellent. Collection and delivery of the vehicles, advice on maintenance, regular calls to update on progress and so friendly to boot. This garage has my loyalty and I’d definitely recommend to others.
All ok, they did a good job
This place is one of the best, friendly, explain step by step with details as they will do the work. I've recharged my car's air conditioner. I'm happy, very professional Thank you
Excellent service, really pleased and would use them again! Thank you!!
Quick and courteous service, very reasonable priced. Highly recommend and will use them in the future.
Bernard was superb, he re filled my air con and re set my service indicator. He even offered me a coffee while i was waiting. 10/10 will use again with confidence. Top bloke

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.
