Top man. Great job. Car like new. :)
Did a fantastic job
Very good service hard to get the locking bolts off my Citroen but they kept at it and succeeded recommend to anyone 5 stars
Dave and Steve replaced both front dampers and fixed the flapping belly pan, throughout the whole process both where a pleasure to deal with and went above and beyond with the courtesy car and trying to get the warranty company to cover the cost of the repairs. I will definitely have any further repairs done by then and would highly recommend them, their level of service is second to none!
Dave and Steve are professional, efficient and knowledgable ! They worked days and nights (literally !) to fix my car. This is probably the best service in the area. My door was badly damaged (dented and deeply scratched) and they were able to fix this in less than 6 days ! I will definitely be using them in the future.
They contacted me very quickly . The job was cried out the following day professionally and I also arranged for some additional work which was carried out within days at a time suitable to me . I'm really pleased with the the work a and the price and would def recommend them
Matt at Motortechs was professional, knowledgeable and quick to update me with any developments in the job. Utilising various services at Motortechs they were able to resolve the issue I came in with and various other things I has been meaning to look at. I was offered various solutions aimed at keeping the costs as low as possible. A few months later my car is running perfectly and I will be returning with any motoring issues I have in the future.
Very good service. Will be recommending to friends and family.
Really pleased with the service from Mat, job completed on time they even found a problem i never knew about professional and curteous definitely recommend
Matt's fantastic, keeps you in the loop completely with what's gone wrong and what needs to be done. Tells you all of the costs so you can make your own decision and has clearly invested in the best equipment and staff available to make sure it's all done properly. Easily the best quote I received, very fair on price and brilliant service. Would definitely use again!
I highly recommend Andy and automotive car clinic, I had a alternator replacement which was carried out in a speedy and very reasonable price, was happy that I was charged less than the original quote, will definitely use automotive car klinic again.

Andy collected my car, completed the work and dropped it back to me - he made the experience very easy for me and at a great price too. Thanks very much!
Brilliant. Friendly, helpful and efficient. Would srongly recomend this garage. Price increase was due to extra work, but all completed in less than a day
Superb service backed by great technical knowledge and experience. Has completely restored my faith in independent garages after recent poor experiences.
Excellent professional service. Super friendly... They explained everything they were doing. What I appreciated most, was the fact that they kept me informed, even on slight delays. I know of a few garages that would have tried to cover up. But that made the difference for me. Would definitely use again in the future.
Yes. Great Service
Used twice now and both times very good, no problem.
Excellent communication, kept me informed the whole time and fitted me in urgently
This garage is great, you get to see them working on your car. Also the employees are always friendly irrespective of how long the day is. Would 100% recommend

Your brakes are extremely important to the safe operation of your vehicle. The job of your brakes is to bring your car to a stop as quickly as possible and if they are not working correctly, the stopping distance will increase and the likeliness of a collision will increase.
Brakes are made up of many different components and repairs could be needed on any one of them. Brakes consist of Brake Calipers, Brake Discs, Brake Pads, Brake Fluid and the Handbrake. The brake calipers squeeze the brake pads against the disc, this creates friction that prevents the disc from spinning and thus the wheels stop moving. New brakes cost different amounts depending on your car, manfacturers will recommend different parts for different cars. Depending on your vehicle, different components will be used. For example, larger vehicles will use discs with ventilation as there is a greater build up of heat when stopping a larger vehicle. Because of this costs will vary from vehicle to vehicle.
The brakes on the front of the car usually contribute the most to bringing a car to a stop as the weight of the car is thrown forward each time the vehicle stops.
Different vehicle have different brake systems and use slightly different parts.
The common hydraulic system uses fluid to apply pressure to pistons in the car close to its wheels to bring the car to a halt.
Some cars also have power brake assistance which helps to reduce the amount of effort required to apply stopping power.
If you need to have your brakes repaired there are several issues that could have caused the problem and several things that could be affected.
If you suspect you need your brakes repaired but your car is still drivable, there are some symptoms which could give you clues as to what the problem is.
The brakes are often the noisiest part of a car if there is an issue which means you should be able to hear a problem which cannot be said of many other broken car parts.
A brake change can vary in cost depending on what exactly you are having done but the average price is around £180. A brake pad replacement will cost less than replacing brake pads and discs. This is because the cost of brake pads is less than the cost to replace brake pads and brake discs. Brake discs replacement is more expensive because the brake discs cost more than brake pads and usually brake pads are changed at the same time brake discs are changed.
New brake pads can vary in price depending on the brand used, so make sure you ask your mechanic what brand of parts they are using. Remember, cheapest is often not the best!
A brake service is offered by some garages and often comprises of a quick check of all the components involved with powering your brakes before concluding whether or not replacing brake pads, brake discs or both is the best course of action. Often a brake service will cost you nothing but can cost a small amount for the garages time. But if the garage finds a problem, they will often waive the brake service cost if you have the worked completed with them. The brake repair cost is what makes it worthwhile the garage waiving the fee for the brake service.
