got it done but they knackered my radio and dvd and kept ringing saying this was wrong and that was wrong with the car it only went in for a clutch so no I would not say I was happy also got no receipt on payment
Really good service, came and picked up the car and also stayed opened late for me
Extremely grateful for the whole experience with M60 Autos - Zac responds swiftly all the time, the speed of their repair is unbelievably quick, and every personnel I’ve met at M60 Autos is extremely helpful and professional. The most important thing is that they do CARE about you - they listen to their customers and try to help you out as far as they can, which is really impressive. I felt really really lucky to have found such an excellent garage, and I’ll defo go to them for any future car issues/servicing/maintenance. Highly highly recommended and thanks again so much!!
Original quote was £30, when I got there the quote was for £450 including a respray! Managed to talk them down to £160 and not do the respray, still way more than the quote. They also wern't able to take card payment as the paper on the roller ran out, so I had to drive one of the guys to a cash point and hand over cash, I was given no receipt. On the plus side the work was done quickly within a day.
Picked up and dropped off with ease for free, my car feels like it drives like new.
I used this garage because of its great reviews, I booked my car to picked up and taken to the garage for a full service and MOT. They picked up on time no problems, they rang me to say it failed MOT on light bulb which was dead, so I was told £10 to replace it, great stuff. They returned my car as agreed, the driver parked up outside my property, left my car in first gear with the handbrake OFF, I turned the engine on only to jolt forward at least 6 feet into the middle of the road, thankfully no one parked in front of me or driving towards to me as that would have been a definite crash. I then realised my front drivers side window I had to hold the button to open window it’s ususlly one touch! Then for the joke of it, my light bulb that it failed MOT for had not evrn been changed, it was still dead, I was so shocked, I checked around my car and noticed the wheels hadn’t been touched at all as there was no finger prints on the alloys. Which made think what have they actually done with my car! I rang up the guy was apologetic and said the technician will come to my house next day and fix bulb. He did come and took him almost 2 hours to change the bulb in VW Polo which apparently is not an easy job to do! The whole experience has left me feeling very unsure and nervous to drive my car now as I don’t know what’s actually been done to my car, I transport small children in my car on a daily basis so I like peace of mind when I have a full service and MOT, Unfotunately NOT this time. I’m sorry I can’t recommend this garage, I got no break down of the points they cover in a full service, no mention of any kind of guarantee on work undertaken,. Sorry I will not be using again.
Can't rate this garage enough and look forward to using them again. Communication from start to finish was excellent. The gentleman picked up the car from a friend's house and returned it to my house, complimentary, and with no issue. Full price included a Full Service of my Honda Civic, genuine Honda parts and two midrange tyres. Minor issue with a delay in delivery of the vehicle, however the car was away for only 24hrs and I was offered £10 off and a complimentary MOT in the future. Much appreciated. Very friendly staff, which is refreshing considering other garages.
Great helpful and friendly service and the owner Zaid kindly dropped me home and picked me up too!
Excellent and very friendly welcome upon arrival, the service was done very professionally and on time, although out of my local area,I had a little more to travel than usual the experience was brilliant and I recommend anyone to use their services as they are very competitive on price and value.

great service, great price.
Whilst the service was done promptly, they did not stanp my service book and they didnt complete a further peice of work requested (and was more than willing to pay for). Not received a single call back since ..although have left 3 or 4 messages. Really dissapointed as initial work was good, just terrible after service care.
good service and friendly
A Very friendly garage and very helpful and go that extra mile to help keep you on the road. thanks chaps
Does what it says on the tin, prompt, accurate and within price quoted. Barry was also able to give me advise about a repair carried out by the main dealer which has prompted me to contact them and get it looked into. Thanks
Responded very quickly to my quote request. Good service. Good price
Good service. Would use again.
Very happy good job done
My car was booked in fast and they picked it up and dropped back to me and the job was done happy upto that point .As for payment I did this over the phone I left the £120 in my account they rang back to say payment was VOID I checked my bank and advised them the money had gone they said they would call me back . 5 mins later they rang and said payment had not gone through and they could not release my car so I would have to pay again I did not have any more money so I told them I only had £120 in my bank and it had gone we’re they told me if I only had £120 in my account that’s why it didn’t go through most stupid thing I’ve ever heared so I said I would lend the money I need my car .So I rang the bank and was told they had took the money and don’t pay them again so I got garage on the phone and the bank told them and they returned my car I would not use them again I don’t think they were trying to scam me but don’t like the way they tell me they won’t return my car when it was no fault of mine
They are not Genuine. I they gave me a quote to replace both front shock absorbers and passenger side rear speed sensor for £200. they call me next day to go and pick up the car. and stated that front shock absorbers didn't need changing. but still charged me £168 to replace the sensor. went back to the MOT center and they failed the shock absorbed. i went back to the garage to get done for the price originally quoted. they said that the quote was wrong (that is was done by who can fix my car not them), and they recon that it was their mistake. but however to do the job i need to pay and extra £260. so be careful before you take your car there as i believe they have bad faith and DISHONEST.
Quoted 50 pound rang as fort was very cheap to be told the price was wrong then reqouted for 60 again still very cheap was told my appoimwnt was booked for 4pm on Friday no problems phoned them Friday around 2 pm asked if I could come earlier around 3pm as I would finished work early lady said on phone said no my appointment was at 4 to call then.. turn up to get the job done to be told it was gonna be more money and they ain't even ordered the parts. Could told me that on the phone before sitting in traffic for a hour to be told nothing can be done we can reboot you in but not sure what price basicly see you later also fix my car customer service is shocking as well just put the phone down on you... shite service all in all
Got there in the morning at 930 am as the booking was then by 11.30 get told the parts will arrive at 4pm then went back at 4pm and left at 6.15 the job is done for a good price but took all day.

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;
