Staff very friendly and helpful even giving me lift to the nearest town whilst the repairs were being carried out. Kept me up to date with developments, overall a very good experience throughout. Would certainly recommend Carbulance to my friends.
Really pleased with the work. Job done quickly as priced with no issues at all. I would highly recommend.
Dean renewed the clutch on my Toyota Aygo in a professional friendly manor. I would certainly recommend this garage as value for money and would certainly take my car there again if needs be.
Excellent quick and efficient at a reasonable price
Excellent job, car picked up on time and delivered back in 2 hours. Thanks Dean. I will certainly be using your serivces in the future for both my and wife's car.
Quick, efficient, price as stated, Dean was excellent. Thanks
Adrian arrived early and completed the job on time, plus his price was the most competitive. I arranged for him to come to me and do the work outside my house, I found him very polite and friendly. I’m really glad I chose Adrian to do the job and I would highly recommend. I will be using Adrian for all my car needs in future. Thank you Adrian
This man was my saviour! My clutch finally went on 27th December ....all local garages shut until after Jan 1st 2019. He came on 30th December when he said he would took me to where I'd abandoned my car....then took my car to his place of work and dropped me off at home again. He repaired the car in 1 day and delivered it back to me ....and advised me that the car had had a blow out on the way to his workplace and fitted a new tyre for a cost of £60.00....the clutch replacement was £345.00. Then being blonde I had to call him back almost immediately because the car wouldn't lock. He turned round straight away and came back......I was mortified because it wouldn't lock because a door was slightly open! He was very kind about the whole thing. Bottom line is I would certainly recommend this guy....even tho' I wouldn't have normally called out/trusted a mobile mechanic. Try him....it will restore your faith in garages! As an addendum the site states that my car was an automatic....it's not!
Adrian was on time, did a great job, hardly stopped a moment for a coffee and tolerated, my many questions while he worked on my car. He knows Renault cars very well and is willing to share that knowledge, unlike many garages! It is the first time I have used a Mobile mechanic and consider him to be the most knowledge able technician I have been privileged to question, within my electrical and engineering experience. I will certainly use him again and will highly recommend him to my friends! Keith
Andrians quote was the cheapest by some way and nearly half of what my normal trusted garage would charge. Andrian communicated at every stage and although the work took longer than he originally thought he gave me plenty of notice so I wasn’t inconvenienced. Despite an unforeseen problem which increased the work he had to undertake, the price stayed the same. The clutch is now perfect and I will definitely be using Adrian again in future.
Excellent all round, good communication and I trusted him.
Had a turbo fitted. Communication with Shaun was great. Was an issue the first time it was fitted due to a leaking oil feed pipe and Shaun was very quick to diagnose the issue and get it sorted without asking for more money! Very professional and reliable service, would definitely use again for any other mechanical work. Thanks Shaun
Very quick response. Extremely happy with the work and would definitely use again
Recommended - price was good and as quoted. Turned up when he said he would and offered excellent advice on various issues with the vehicle.
Replaced faulty water pump and gasket on Ford Focus Mk1 Zetec. Pressure test on cooling system. Replaced rocker cover gasket. Cleaned oil leaks around engine. Checked condition of cambelt. Shaun arrived as expected. He confirmed what needed to be done and confirmed the price of the work. He returned to perform the works. He worked in the rain and wind. He did a thorough and careful job. He used genuine Ford parts. He communicated with me in a friendly yet professional manner. I inspected his work and way of working which is a major advantage in having a mobile mechanic. I would recommend Shaun and would use him again.
Shaun, our mechanic, was very polite and thorough. Confirmed the problem, ordered, fetched and fitted the necessary part. He worked very hard and left everything very clean and tidy. Marvellous that he came to the house to do the job! Would definitely recommend WhoCanFixMyCar.com.

The cambelt is a rubber belt which controls the timing of a vehicle’s internal combustion engines. It is vital in the process of making the vehicle run smoothly as it also ensures the crankshaft and camshaft rotate in synchronisation.
A snapped cambelt is uncommon however tension issues are more widespread.
If the belt is too loose it will end up whipping around inside the engine which will cause a variety of knock on effects and if the belt is too tight it will put a strain on the bearings of the cogs it's fitted to.
A tight belt will cause a whining noise to be emitted from the engine so if you hear this sound make sure to book a repair as soon as possible. You shouldn’t wait until this happens though, as the damage caused by a faulty cambelt will end up costing you even more money in repairs.
As you will see in the FAQ section and video above, the cost of a cambelt repair can vary depending on the vehicle and garage. The biggest cost associated with this job type will be the labour itself.
This is because the parts are based deep within the engine and getting to them takes time. The components themselves won’t cost you a huge amount as they are not complex so don’t be surprised to see labour costs making up the biggest part of the bill.
Even if your cambelt doesn’t completely break its important to keep an eye on the component as per the instructions provided by your cars manufacturer, if you leave it for too long, the belt could snap and cause catastrophic engine failure.
The cambelt will need replacing at some point, usually around the 30,000 – 50,000 mile mark but make sure to consult the vehicles owner’s manual to double check as it may vary depending on the vehicle.

So if you want to know how much to change a timing belt, you can use the form at the top of this page to get a quote for a new timing belt.
If you want to replace timing belt and want to find out the timing belt change cost from local garages, make sure to use WhoCanFixMyCar.
