I have not had the work carried out yet because it is more expensive than I first thought, but I may well do sometime in the future.
Very professional and friendly , very confident to recommend and use again as really happy with their work .
Very pleased with service, they picked up car and dropped it off and fixed the engine misfiring, the culprit was a cracked coolant tank in the engine causing overheating. Very professional outfit, only reservation was the car still showing lights on dashboard when I start it up - would have been helpful to have been told this before getting car back as I may have wanted more work to be carried out to check reasons why warning lights coming on. Nevertheless I will use them again.
Top notch customer service. Friendly staff and owner.
excellent to deal with, clear and concise on the phone and willing to work with the customer in terms of flexibility - ordered my part without me even paying for it before i brought the car over and then sorted the car in a few hours. would use again, no problem. thanks guys
Great communications and prompt updates on progress and costs with friendly staff and receptionists. I Broke down due to a DPF issue and had to be recovered. Anthony messaged me to let me know that they had a DPF cleaning and regeneration service. He clearly explained that a DPF was the symptoms and victim of another issue. Due to this an investigation was carried out to diagnose what was seen to be the possible rote cause and issues including error warning lights on the console. Anthony managed to my knowledge to locate this issue being a faulty crank shaft sensor and other issues relating to a broken wire in the loom. He also did a Major service and while this was done discovered that its's extremely likely the last time I had a service with a Main dealer that the oil and filter had none be cleaned or changed. (something that I had already expected due to other issues) If Anthony has solved all my issues that had not been dealt with by previous garages this will have been the best garage I have used ever. Anthony is very good at assessing and explaining what problems are and effective solutions to them. I only say this as I just got the car back yesterday and don't want to be previous with my assessment but so far so good. Anyway I will be back in the new few months for the annual MOT and check up to see if everything went well. Only then will I be able to confirm everything. I would also like to note that from what I had seen quality tools, oils, lubricants and parts are used. Also and most importantly that no cutting corners or lazy fixes such as just swapping out parts till it works. If Anthony does not know the answer he will find out and help. I had enquired about getting my Air-con re-gassed and he suggested it was cost prohibitive for him to offer the service and to use another specialists. Thank you Anthony and team for as painless experience as possible with a garage. Mercedes A180 CDI (w169)
Good explanation great Costomer service Thanks.
BMW X5 rear suspension issues and MOT and tyres Wow...I have never been so impressed by a garage...used them for the first time this last week. Antony is a total superstar. 1) he knows what he is doing...after trying another local garage a month ago, Antony got to the bottom of my sagging rear suspension...turned out it was multiple problems. He went and tested every piece, the compressor, the valve block, the air bags, the pipes and finally the little computer that controls all of it. He found the issues and gave me options on how to fix it for the cheapest price possible. 2) great value - he offers very reasonable prices for high quality parts...you can source your own if u like but u can trust him to get parts (all Parts come with a 1 year warranty) 3) great communication - see above...he keeps you informed and gives you options 4) honest...if something takes 20 min...he charges you accordingly...none of this rounding up to the nearest 2 hours that u get at many other garages...he understands that cars can be money pits and does what’s he can to help! Highly recommend. A total gem!! I will be doing all my business with them!!!!
Very pleased overall Price as quoted kept fully informed and all seems working fine
Very communicative in the run up to the appointment, good price quoted and re-quoted after I changed my request. The job was all brake discs and pads; two of the brake calipers had seized (unforeseeable). Antony managed to release one with a lot of effort, but the other had to be replaced. Again, very communicative about the extra work and parts required, and a fair additional price quoted. Also put the effort into removing rust build-up around the brakes, and some preventative maintenance to make future brake work easier. In summary, very good service at a fair price from an honest and knowledgeable mechanic.
I am very satisfied. Definitely will use him again in future. Thanks
Florian was quick to reply to my query in the beginning. He arranged to come out the next morning! Baring in mind I put my request in at midnight!! He said he would be at my house to inspect the car between 10am-11am he actually showed up at 9:45am just goes to show you his level of professionalism he identified I had a faulty coolant expansion bottle and it’s now fixed . Punctuality is key when dealing with cars and he understands that he is very facilitating towards his customers. And made me feel at ease the whole time will he using him from now on. Thank you Florian
Good service, better than the AA. On time.
Excellent service. Prompt, efficient, friendly and helpful. Will definitely use again.
Excellent service. Tony was charming and able to fit me in at short notice. Job was completed within 45 minutes. Great value for money. Would recommend to anyone and use again for other jobs.
I had to cancel the appointment. Nevertheless, I have been there a couple of times and they are always so nice and friendly they are just amazing. See you next time.
Extremely professional, nice and friendly an cost-effective! They did an amazing job and the AC is now working perfectly. Definitely the place where I will take my car next time.

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.
