The perfect garage
Brilliant service. Collected and dropped off car with no problems. Car brake pads replaced and dealt with professionally from start to finish.
Job done quickly and will use this. Business again
Patrick Was very helpful, picked up and returned car and did a great job on the respray.
have owned my current car for 12 years during which time I have carefully maintained it. In the main it has normally gone to a main Ford dealer for servicing/repair work, however over the last few years due to the car getting older and moreso due to the ever increasingly over inflated prices that main Ford dealers charge, I have been looking for cheaper alternatives for repairs and subsequently have had several jobs carried out via this site. The first two jobs via this website were not good experiences due to poor workmanship and being charged for work that was never done. However my recent experience with this latest job has restored my faith in this site . Patrick the owner is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, he took the time to go on a test drive with me and confirmed the knocking noise that I was complaining about and identified the general area it was coming from. The car was booked in for repair the following week and subsequently when the car was in the workshop the mechanic quickly identified the exact problem part which was then ordered and replaced within an hour at a very reasonable price. The main Ford dealer who I had taken the car to prior to taking it to Patrick had actualy incorrectly diagnosed the problem and once again quoted a hugely over inflated price to get it repaired, it was the price they were charging that made me turn to this site again and this time I'm glad I did. The car is now back to how I'm used to it being and I would definitely recommend this garage and will certainly be using them again in the future
Good service, work done quickly, polite and clean. Thanks!
came to them to get a new clutch for my car as my one was experiencing clutch slipping, and they did an excellent job in replacing the clutch at a reasonable price! very happy with the work done and I can feel a significant improvement in the car's drive. would recommend
Lovely staff at the garage. The pick up and drop off service is great when you are working and need the car sorted!
Just had my car returned from having a full service at this garage, I’m so pleased, the staff were lovely, great with communication and very thorough with the service & checks. The free collection & drop off they offer was a life saver for me as a busy mum and they even went above & beyond the service for me st no extra cost. honestly the best garage I’ve delt with so far, as a woman I always worry about being conned or ripped off, but NOT at this place & these guys have just got themselves a customer for life. Thank you so much
Prompt service on pick up and delivery. Had a service and MOT turned round to me in 7 hours which was great. Used Genuine Peugeot parts for replacement so kept my car in warranty and found some issues that the MOT missed as well. All in all good experience.
Exceeded expectations. Honest and authentic specialist mechanic. Customer service 9/10/
Great service and great price!
Very friendly, efficient and explained all the extra costs
Really good, I'm really happy!
Till now alternator is working properly, the service offered by the garage was good. I paid a bit more cause there was a problem with oil pressure that needed sorted out. Anthony the garage owner is abordable and i can recommend this garage.
Brilliant Job ! Car works like new!
Anthony fixed my Car immediately. he was polite and worked upto my satisfaction.
Great job, fast service with reasonable price. Thank you.
Excellent service. Cheapest quote - saved £500. Superb work done. Highly recommended.
Outstanding customer service from Ade Auto Repairs. Very polite and helpful staff. Easy to speak to over the phone. I also received a warm welcome when I dropped and picked my car. I have already recommended Ade Auto to friends and family.
I am happy with the work that had been done along with the cost which i think was fair however it took 3days to complete the work which should of been completed within 2 days at the most. The mechanic did keep me updated but they can probably do with taking on additional mechanics to manage work loads and review their suppliers. Any parts should be delivered within one hour if good relationship with suppliers
I came to Ade’s garage for a service. They were very efficient, fast and professional. They were able to complete my service to a good standard and identify any additional faults with my car. Good price and well experienced mechanics. Will visit again and recommend to others.
Great place to fix your car!
Al is an incredible person, very friendly and helpful. I had to refurbish and paint my alloy wheels. Al did a fantastic job. Now my wheels look like new. Well done! Highly recommend this garage for their services!
Al is great, straightforward, friendly, helpful and tried to save me some money, i’m Going to take my car to him for everything now
Provided a good service. Fixed something I didn't realise was broken but sure makes the car a lot better for driving. Would recommend
Very friendly staff, great work and reasonably priced.
Found Billy & his team very helpful & friendly. Kept informed of extra work required & completed on time for a very reasonable cost. Would use again & can recommend.
Work was very professional. Would definitely recommend Auto Plaza
I had what I thought was a small bump above the back right wheel of the car. After asking a few people at car washes and various place to take a look at it, I had been told all sorts of astronomical prices to get it fixed and thought whocanfixmycar.com would be a good way of getting an overview of different prices quickly. Billy at 4 Fab Wheels got back to me the next day and as I realized he was near to my office I popped in one evening to see what he thought of the car in person. He was extremely helpful from the moment I got there and very good and giving me details so I wasn't worried about being overcharged or the job being done incorrectly. The work was done within 24 hours and to a very high standard - he would now be my go-to for any work that needed doing in the future
If you want a good job completed in great time and pay a reasonable price... 4 Fab Wheels is the place to go. The proficiency in their work and excellent customer service is why I would use them again! Thank you Billy and your team.

Hopefully our FAQ section has answered some of the questions you may have about bodywork repair. However, if you would like more information, we have the produced the following guide to help you understand the subject in greater detail.
Body work repair covers a wide range of job types which means the cost will vary greatly as well as the length of time it will take to carry out.
Panel beating is a job carried out by specialist bodywork technicians who are able to utilise specific tools and techniques to reshape the metal on the body of a car.
If you are involved in an accident, it will often be the body that takes the brunt of the damage as panels on a car are designed to absorb impact and reduce the force of a crash by cushioning the blow.
Even though a car may have suffered a huge impact, it doesn’t always mean that the panels need to be replaced.
Panel bashing involves using a huge variety of tools to manipulate the metal and get it back to it's original shape.
Depending on the extent of the damage, the amount of time and money spent will vary, however the cost is likely to be less than replacing an entire panel.
Getting a respray is a quick and easy job which most specialist body shops will be able to carry out.
Depending on the facilities at the body shop you choose, the time the job will take will vary.
Some specialists will have state of the art spraying booths and work with classic and high end cars, these facilities will be able to deliver the highest quality of respray work as the paint and delivery system will be the best available.
However, the job is likely to be more expensive than a conventional body shop.
The time taken and cost of the service will depend on the type of paint and the size of the area requiring respray.
Wrapping a car can help protect the paintwork from weather, chipping and rusting as well as UV rays which can fade the paint on your car.
Furthermore, if you happen to scratch or scuff your car, the wrapping will take the brunt of the damage and so protect the underlying paint.
You can have your car wrapped to display specific graphics if you are interested in changing the aesthetic of your car.
If you want a stripe on your car or other shapes, you can make the request from a specialist who will provide you with a quote.
Before a vinyl wrap is applied; all of the lights, door handles, trims and badges will be removed from the body of the car.
Special car wrapping surface cleaner will then be applied to your car before the wrap is applied.
The car wrap will can then be applied to the properly.
Once more, the time taken to complete the work depending on the size and shape of the piece.
Welding is an important part of bodywork car repair as it is essential for fixing different pieces of metal together.
Welding is a highly skilled job and should not be attempted unless you are a trained professional.
There are a huge amount of uses for welding on a vehicle as new parts can be created and existing ones can be repaired.
Many different parts of a car can be repaired with the help of a welding expert so do not think your car is written off if something falls out of the engine!
If you have been in an accident, we hope you're ok!
When it comes to having your car fixed after an accident it can be a toss up as to how much it will cost and how long the car will take to be repaired as the extent of the damage will be completely different from one to the next.
It's can be impossible to understand the extent of the damage to your vehicle after an accident so it's vital that you get more than one quote, as the cost could vary by hundreds of pounds from one garage to the next.
Rust removal can be a job completed without the need of a mechanic, however it depends on the extent of the damage and the area which is affected.
Rust forms when an anode, cathode and electrolyte combine.
The metal in your car acts as the cathode and anode which reacts with water (the electrolyte).
Even if your car is under cover, rust will form as a result of these elements coming together if the climate is humid enough.
You can buy specific products online which can help remove rust which are effective at repairing damage, however its effectiveness will vary on the extent of the damage.
The cost of a rust repair will once more depend on the extent of the damage.
Getting a scratch or scruff is common for cars in the UK however they can be perfectly removed with the right technical knowledge, tools and materials.
It’s important to remember that even if you have suffered from extensive scratching or scuffs, a trained professional has the ability to remove them with precision.
Removing a scratch is far cheaper than having an entire body piece replaced like a bumper so always check with a body shop to see if they can remove a scratch before replacing anything.
On average it doesn’t take too long to have your body work repaired when it comes to scratches and scruffs.
It’s important that you get a car scratch removed as soon as possible as it may get worse over time and the value of your vehicle will reduce!
Having a scratch removed by an expert is the best option unless you are a trained professional, as there are a variety of materials and techniques involved in the process.
The cost and time taken to complete the work will depend entirely on the extent of the damage to the body work so make sure to get as many quotes as possible to avoid paying over the odds.
The mechanic will apply the paint to the car scratch, or car scuff, as part of the bodywork repair.
The Paintwork repair required for removing car scratches and car scuffs shouldn’t vary in time or cost greatly, from garage to garage.
The bodywork required on a car restoration will be significant as whole panels are likely to require replacement and the ones which stay as part of the original vehicle, will need to be welded, have rust and scratches removed.
A full restoration make take years and they often do, as mechanics and hobbyists use their spare time and money to build their own cars.
A huge amount of car body work will be required on restorations as all of the components will be required to be removed and fixed back into place during different stages of the work.
Dent repair is one of the biggest parts of body work repair and is essentially the same as panel beating or panel bashing which is covered at the top of this guide.
SMART repair (Small, Medium Area Repair Technology) is a type of service offered by mechanics which is includes the use of specialised tools, paints and materials to provide your car with a good as new finish on an area which may be damaged.
Before the technology existed, if a panel was damaged, the entire piece would have to be replaced meaning more money and time would have to be spent on car maintenance.
The advances in technology mean that the speed and effectiveness of body work repair is significantly improved.
According to YouGov research, 65% of cars in the UK are carrying damage which could easily be repaired using SMART repair.
The specific jobs included in this type of body work are;
