Brilliant quick response and troubleshooting. Quickly check and fix. Very recommend this local garage.
Such good customer service. I had to have a few things done other then the clutch. The garage gave me a fair price. The clutch was £319 but paid for extra work. I would definitely recommend them and will be using them after Christmas for a full service.
Good all round job after a few problems, but still waiting contact on correcting ABS problem that was not there before visit
Wow! what an excellent garage, they do it all for you at the same quote!! I was taking my Mini to authorized service station and they were ripping me off for diagnostics, never ever will I go to them after this garage. I am highly satisfied and would recommend to anyone who want good services for their money. They are honest and know their job.
Helpful, reliable staff. They did what I’ve asked them for. Thanks!!
Nice and easy.
Friendly, professional service. Would use again.
Very professional and helpful will not hesitate to go back
Good work, and excellent customer service, even helped me out of the parking spot as I wasn't confident enough to do it myself.
Had wheel bearings done on the car they phoned me to say my rear brakes were very low and recommend that I get them done while the drums were off so I took the chance and paid a little bit extra they did a good job would go with again thanks for your help
First class service! Being a single female I’m always cautious about being ripped off but the price I paid was below the average quote I got. My car was collected, fixed and returned on the same day. Will highly recommend
Absolutely amazing great service and very reliable
Fantastic service, very professional, competitive prices, I will be recommending to everyone, and will certainly be using again when required.
The job was done quickly and efficiently at the quoted price which was much cheaper than any of the garages. Plus, they went out of their way to ensure everything was done to my satisfaction, including adding a replacement brake sensor cable.
Great service, can't ask for anything more, very thorough
Kept informed of what time they would arrive. He got on with the job, nice bloke to be honest. I am already using them again on my family car.
Came out quickly, diagnosed as a faulty starter motor. Managed to get a part and replace on the same day! Hassle free. Will use again
Extremely happy with the service offered. Will use again.
Fast and friendly service, highly recommend A+
I have today had my car in the above garage to have some work done on it , I found the mechanic to be helpful with what was wrong with it he kept in contact with me with what the problems were that were wrong with it and how much the parts would be so I could tell him whether carry on with it,excellent work done I would recommend this family business to anyone.
Recommend this garage, helpful and a job well done.
Job done well and efficiently
They were very good
Fantastic service, did the job as requested at a great price and fixed a niggling and potentially expensive BMW dealer visit issue at no extra cost, faultless!
Great service fast response.. Would go here again..
Good professional service. I had to pay extra for a battery and other items, which ended up raking up the final price. But other than that, very lovely snd professional people.
MTS were very helpful, keeping me informed with progress and costs. They liaise with the warantee company and we are waiting to find out whether the work is covered. I am happy with the work they have completed at approximately 50% of the quote from BMW dealer. Have been lent a courtesy car whilst mini was off the road which although not glamourous fulfilled the need. I would recommend MTS to anyone.
Very friendly and quick would definitely recommend and use again
Great price Good service The only thing I would say is that they didn't phone me after I had accepted the quote.I had to ring them to book the work in.No big deal though.
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.
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!
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.

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.
