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
Excellent. Steve was really helpful and accommodating, going above and beyond what was expected including collecting the vehicle from the dealer and performing additional testing that I requested. A detailed report followed a thorough inspection, and truly reflective of the vehicle, highlighting areas that otherwise would have been overlooked. Strongly recommended.
This team is the best match of honest and experienced technicians. Steve and Tom looked at my Car and suggested the best options. This garage is highly recommended.
Barnside Motors were brilliant. I had already tried 2 local garages to fix my van, one wanted to charge me £750 for a new filter, the other one didn’t have a clue. As soon as I spoke to the lads at Barnside Motors I could tell right away that they that they knew their stuff. They fixed the fault and cleaned the filter for a fraction of the price Penn Motors quoted me. My van is now working perfectly again.I just can’t thank Barnside Motors enough.
Very good as before the booking was very easy they fitted me in the next day for an MOT which had expired.Luckily it sailed through. Many thanks to the team at Barnside.
Yes I would. Although the final price was higher I was was warned that this might have been the case by Jon as it needed a new flywheel. He seemed very professional and said that the job took him much longer than he anticipated due to some rusted bolts but still did not charge any more than the original quote (except for the flywheel cost).
Picked up car on time. Did a full service at a very reasonable price. Kept me informed of progress and returned car at time expected. Excellent service will use again.
Absolutely brilliant. It was a very reasonable quote and the service was professional and quick. Will def use again. Made me feel like a valued customer!!
Very quick, reliable and friendly,,, picked up my car at 7, brought it back before 11.... he called me to tell me that not only brake pads worn but discs gone too... he did not charge for fitting of discs and only charged for the parts......they will be my go to from now on for all our vehicles..... honest mechanics, efficient,,,, highly recommend
Very good customer service provided by Kim. And the work was very on the car was spot on.
Great service, came to pick up my car for an MOT on time and gave me a ring beforehand to check I hadn’t forgotten and rang me to say it had passed and was being driven back to me shortly. Fixed my headlights for free so that my car would pass the MOT. Friendly staff and all done in 4 hours. Highly recommend!!
Very professional and fast service. Very friendly and helpful people. I only paid 115 for removing and installing dpf which is not easy job for my golf. I also decided change egr valve. Labour total was 175 plus they got new egr for 270 which was quite competitive prize. Owner also changed my MAF sensor for free. I supplied dpf and egr. So far car runs like a new. I will for sure use this garage and I can recommend in future.
Very good service. Prompt collection and communication is very fast.

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.

Very quick service, polite and very helpful people. They even checked my car after asking about some faults and they told me what need repair -free of charge
Quick and friendly service at the price that was originally quoted. Yes, I would recommend this garage.

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.
