Top man. Great job. Car like new. :)
Did a fantastic job
Very good service hard to get the locking bolts off my Citroen but they kept at it and succeeded recommend to anyone 5 stars
Dave and Steve replaced both front dampers and fixed the flapping belly pan, throughout the whole process both where a pleasure to deal with and went above and beyond with the courtesy car and trying to get the warranty company to cover the cost of the repairs. I will definitely have any further repairs done by then and would highly recommend them, their level of service is second to none!
Dave and Steve are professional, efficient and knowledgable ! They worked days and nights (literally !) to fix my car. This is probably the best service in the area. My door was badly damaged (dented and deeply scratched) and they were able to fix this in less than 6 days ! I will definitely be using them in the future.
They contacted me very quickly . The job was cried out the following day professionally and I also arranged for some additional work which was carried out within days at a time suitable to me . I'm really pleased with the the work a and the price and would def recommend them
Matt at Motortechs was professional, knowledgeable and quick to update me with any developments in the job. Utilising various services at Motortechs they were able to resolve the issue I came in with and various other things I has been meaning to look at. I was offered various solutions aimed at keeping the costs as low as possible. A few months later my car is running perfectly and I will be returning with any motoring issues I have in the future.
Very good service. Will be recommending to friends and family.
Really pleased with the service from Mat, job completed on time they even found a problem i never knew about professional and curteous definitely recommend
Matt's fantastic, keeps you in the loop completely with what's gone wrong and what needs to be done. Tells you all of the costs so you can make your own decision and has clearly invested in the best equipment and staff available to make sure it's all done properly. Easily the best quote I received, very fair on price and brilliant service. Would definitely use again!
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.

Andy collected my car, completed the work and dropped it back to me - he made the experience very easy for me and at a great price too. Thanks very much!
Brilliant. Friendly, helpful and efficient. Would srongly recomend this garage. Price increase was due to extra work, but all completed in less than a day
Superb service backed by great technical knowledge and experience. Has completely restored my faith in independent garages after recent poor experiences.
Excellent professional service. Super friendly... They explained everything they were doing. What I appreciated most, was the fact that they kept me informed, even on slight delays. I know of a few garages that would have tried to cover up. But that made the difference for me. Would definitely use again in the future.
Yes. Great Service
Used twice now and both times very good, no problem.
Excellent communication, kept me informed the whole time and fitted me in urgently
This garage is great, you get to see them working on your car. Also the employees are always friendly irrespective of how long the day is. Would 100% recommend

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.
