Great service, lovely people and resonable price.
Correct garage, good technicians
Ended up being a wishbone causing problem so had most suspension parts changed that side aswell to save it needing again in the near future! was all done nicely
Great customer service and good value for money. Initially I planned to buy the parts myself as I found a really good offer but the garage matched that offer so the only thing I had to do was to show up on the day. I would definitely use again.
The bottom line is that these guys know what they're doing and charge reasonably for their services. The customer waiting area is very basic and the whole appearance of the garage is a bit rough round the edges but once you meet them they are straight forward, friendly and get the job done. They fixed a heating problem on my Audi a4 other garages would not touch as they feared the complexity of the job and opening up a can of worms! Not Galaxy auto, they got it sorted!
Didnt need work doing guy was honest
Quick response to my request, very knowledgeable and excellent service.
Really good garage, nice to meet someone you can trust, got them to do some other jobs for me as well. would highly recommend.
Stuart provided exactly the service I was after, highlighting the issue that was bugging me for months in less than an hour. Will use this company again, especially as they offer remote / mobile servicing options.
Can’t recommend this guy enough. He stayed way over other the 45 minutes prices and didn’t charge us. He was able to identify the issue and talk us through the ways to resolve it and was happy to come back out and help with more issues. He had all the right equipment and this guy was professional
Thoroughly recommend this garage. They collected and returned my car exactly as planned and completed the service on budget.
Efficient friendly service price exactly as quoted with communication every step of the way these guys are truly hidden gems
Polite and courteous garage. Car serviced promptly, washed and ready for collection when they said it would be. Recommended.
Polite efficient service. Price quoted was price charged. Happy to recommend
Excellent garage, will def use again.
Pros: -Car was collected and delivered within the quote price -Did not charge extra to re-run Mot after a minor fault (washer fluid) was fixed Cons: -Garage was unable to collect car on planned day of booking as booking did not get put into diary -Was quoted for both service and mot, but only mot was carried out. However was only charged for mot (plus washer fluid)
Great staff, all friendly and willing to explain what was going on with my car and the service, gave accurate time lines and stayed within estimated price. I will go here for all future services.
Great bunch of people that all seem to know their stuff. The price was right and my Air-Con now blows cold again :) What more could I ask for
Booked in for a 9:30am service. They started the service at 3pm. Initial cost may seem cheap but they are very expensive once they diagnose a fault. They also misdiagnose faults.
I was happy with the price quoted for the genuine break pads and discs changed for my Mercedes C class. Staff was friendly. They gave me the right estimate of the time it would take to change the break and disc. Job seems to be done nicely. There is a 1year warranty also on the parts fixed which is helpful. Just wanted to say that I would have preferred an invoice which mentions that genuine parts have been used; not just invoice of the price and job done( it just gives me a piece of mind ). Thanks again. Will use it in future.
Quick turnaround, friendly and offered advice on other car issues without making me feel pressured into booking the jobs. Would definitely use again.
An honest, friendly and genuine mechanic who knows his stuff. Really pleased with the work that was completed. Would recommend without hesitation.
Very quick and efficient service, prompt on time and no issues

Good value for money. Honest customer service. Home collection and delivered worked fine. Kept informed throughout the process. Will definitely use again.
A bit too expencive, a bit disappointed, i ask including parts full service price and result is, parts extra costs, break fluid and viperblades not changed !
Very good, they know what they doing
Quick and reliable, would use again

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.
