Full service for which I was also notified about extra cost of spark plugs Also required a brake fluid change as mot failure. Two new headlights that I provided had also to be attached to the vehicle. Excellent value.
Very good. Even dropped me to Shepperton station. Price was as agreed before the input.
Good service, quickly addressed 2 MOT failures, returned car in good time.
Polite and friendly. Left my car with them whilst I went to work. Kept updated by e-mail regarding any other issues and how much each issue would cost to repair with a live bill where you can agree or decline to have the work done at the click of a button. Very happy with the service.

Positive experience with Vonmack Engineering,genuine and honest as they say on their profile. Was greeted by Roshan who booked the car in and offered coffee too. Met Uditha too, who actually was going to do the repair. They used quality parts and even kept the old parts for me to see. Found that the water pump had developed a leak, so was on its way out. Great job done at a very competitive price. Would definitely recommend, and I for sure will be using them for other work too.
Ken is a very friendly and honest man came same day to look at my van told me upfront repairs needed parts and labour costs. Came back next day did repairs.Work very hard and stuck to estimate. I wil use Ken again for my Van and my wife car.Would recommend to anyone.
So friendly and reassuring. Ken phoned me to keep me updated whilst waiting for parts and explained how the problem could be fixed very clearly. I know very little about cars and Ken never patronised me, being respectful and polite all the way. Thoroughly recommend this service
Absolutely fantastic job. I do recommend this mechanic. He gave me a call straight after my quote submission. This was the reason for choosing him.
Kens quality and professionalism is fantastic. My dealt with my problem and sorted it out quickly and efficiently. Highly recommended. Cheers Ken
Brilliant service. Abby was very helpful and got the car started well wihout delay or further work beige required. The car now runs very well. Happy with cost and outcome.
Abby was very helpful, he called me about 5 mins after I put my request on and he was here within the hour. He checked the car over and advised what I need to have done, super helpful. I would definitely call him again if I had any other problems and would definitely recommend. Thank you
After putting my request out for tender I received a quote and a phone call from Abby within 15 minutes. He was very polite and asked detailed questions to determine exactly what the problems were that I was facing with the car. He explined my options very clearly and was refreshingly honest about the scope of work that might be required to get the car back on the road. Within a couple of hours he had come to see the car, run a diagnostics test and taken it away for it to be repaired. During the entire process he kept me updated via phone calls and texts. Having repaired the fault (and saving me many £££s! ) he dropped the car off fully valeted and looking and driving as good as good as new! I cannot stress enough how pleased I am with the service Abby provided. A real gentleman, and refreshingly straightforward and honest..I have already recommended his business to several others. Thank you so much once again!
Placed the request for help after 11pm, talked and agreed a next day call out all before midnight. We met up and we went through all the diagnostics you could dream of. to find out what was problematic. My engineer, or perhaps consultant would be a better description, made sure I understood all the issues. He allowed, no suggested I photo the error messages so I can research them properly to work out what I wanted to work on. Totally no pressure to ask them to do any further work. Truely professional, helpful and confidence building.
Good service and communication. They clearly have the expertise to help you.
My car had a dent on the driver’s side wing that ruined the look of the vehicle, he collected the car on Sunday evening took it away and said he will bring it back the next evening, talk about fast, great price, excellent paint match, fantastic workmanship and he collected the car and delivered it back to my home, what else can you ask for. I will definitely be using again myself in the future and would without a doubt recommend to my friends if they need a reliable garage.
Work was very professional. Would definitely recommend Auto Plaza

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;
