great service Patrick is a life saver,he was very understanding and completed the work what was necessary to be done on my car and i'm over the moon ,can't fault him in any way.
Couldn't recommend Patrick enough, very helpful and went out of his way to ensure the job was done as quickly as possible. Even dropped the car back to my house which was great. I needed a new clutch and flywheel (£1250) for a Lexus IS250. Was quoted just under £2k by a Lexus Dealership.
I would rate at 5. Done what they said they would in the time given. Car feels like new. They go over and beyond repairs. Picking your car up and returning to you. Would definitely use again and would recommend to all including my own family! A clutch and fly wheel cost me £800. Was quoted £998 for clutch and if I had fly wheel changed £1423 by the local dealership. I have a mini. Need I say more! Happy customer for sure
Paul was absolutely fantastic, I am not exaggerating, he was brilliant. I cannot recommend him, Automotive Components highly enough. There were no hidden extras with the price quoted, and his advice was welcome and refreshing! Ive told all my family, friends and colleagues about him and his service, I hope that he doesn't get too busy though as he is now my dedicated mechanic!
Patric is a great man he knows what he is doing plus he good at his word
Brilliant service. Very helpful and explained all costs. Would recommend
Accepted this job about a month after quote(July) and have just had work done end of august.price for work still the same. Very good value for both mot and service. Rang day before too arrange pick of car from my work place which was free. They said they would ring with time for pick which they did. All work completed and car dropped back off before I finished work. All staff were friendly. It was so easy.
Great sevice. Really frendly and helpfull Thanks xxx
They were excellent!
It was good to be able to nearly put my windscreen through again by having newly working brakes haha. Seriously though, professionally done and I'm delighted with the work and fair price. Thanks again!
i got my jetta for a year and the handbrake goes sth wrong. they tested it and fixed it. all very friendly guys,fixed the job within half day and returned the car to my parking lot, effiecnt, defenitely will recommend to friends.
Excellent and Honest 1st class garage. I'll definitely be back. Very impressive 5star service. Great value for money.
I booked for service of my car , it was good service in regard to service of the car , but a huge bill of other faults were estimated which were not even the genuine faults in the car . It seems they want to trap me by giving such big faults which actually are not.
Everything was great!
I found my car can not started totally at parking lot. They arranged everything i.e. the recovery, diagnostic and what I need to do is just leaving my key to them. that is it. so easy. and finally a blocked filter is discovered and get exchanged. everything included cost 167 but I think it is worth. They are very reliable and asked if I wanted to do some specific work and told me how much it cost. All of the work done showed on the final invoice paper. Although it is a bit expensive to me( i am a uni student), it is totally worthy because everything is transparent. recommend it. problem reported on Friday and get my car back on Tuesday~-~
Excellent and speedy service, I took my car in at half past 8 and it was ready to be picked up by 12! Cheees
Great little garage and they don't rip you off they tried to keep the price as low as possible.
Great service from these guys, swift replys when enquiring and speedy service when getting the service, dropped the car off in morning and had it back after finishing work
Haven't used your site before but on doing so I was very impressed with Steins Garage Edinburgh. Craig Stein was very quick to get back to me following my initial enquiry. I am pleased to say that a full service was carried out today and that the price quoted was the price paid. He recommended new front tyres in a couple of months time. (I was expecting this) My car was booked in, serviced and I picked it up mid afternoon. I was very impressed with the service given, the price paid and an honest recommendation. I will definitely be going back and will gladly recommend this garage to my family and friends. Very satisfied customer. Well done.
Excellent service Ana a very friendly and honest staff.
Good communication, job done quickly and efficiently. By far the best price around, would highly recommend.
Quoted quickly and booked in the following day. The second time I have used this garage in a matter of weeks, yet again the most competitive price around. My car also needed a particulate fluid top up, something I had put off for months. I gave them the fluid and they kindly did this job for me and also fixed my rear windscreen wiper for free. There are many garages who will try and make money out of nothing, this garage are genuine and go the extra mile. Happy to use for all my motoring needs.
Polite and helpful advice from a very nice Guy. He didn't just throw on a new exhaust, showed me that it just had a leaking joint.
Good service, competitive price, no complaints
Amazing garage!! Good price, very helpfull and a very fast service was done within a couple of hours. Couldn't be more happy, will recommend to everyone!
The car failed MOT and was repaired quickly. Also delivered to my home address. Good service.
Very arrogant. Gave me a price of £25 which I screenshot for proof. Wanted to tow my car to garage which I didn't want and said I will chance just having a battery fitted. Told me a price of £120 which was not the quote given. Told me the mechanic was on the way but never turned up. My car had cut out in salford, I live in liverpool. Travelled down by train to meet mechanic....no show after a hours wait in the rain!! 6 hours wasted time. Would never recommend Unprofessional and rude
Nice no nonsense back street garage. Said half an hour to fix and half an hour it took. As I got good vibes I also decided to change a couple of tyres while I was there. The whole job was done in an hour. You can pay a main dealer for the comfy seats and nice lighting or if you just want a job done then M60 is 5 Star. Will definitely use again. Thanks Zak
Good people did the job they quoted for they go out of there way for u would use them again
Was quoted over £500 from the garage who did my mot work without the option of any cheaper parts contacted m60 autos and was given a much cheaper price and I'm very happy with the results
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 avaliable.
However the job is likely to be more expensive than a conventional body shop.
The time taken and cost of the serivce 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.
Scratches and scruffs
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;
