Duffys garage towed my car from another garage and charged half of what I had been quoted by the first garage for fixing the gear box and replacing the clutch.

A 5* experience with Fenham Garage. The service was perfect and the repair was too! Definitely recommend them to everyone who needs their Mini looked after.
Nice people, did everything that was asked, price matched, can't fault!
Work was done without any fuss and for a fair price
Would highly recommend GC Autos. The quote was very competitive. Company and staff highly professional and experienced. You will not be disappointed
Good service. No fuss
Excellent service and final price as quoted. Would definitely recommend.
Very good and pleasing It's good to deal with people who are prepared to be fair and not just out to take your money. Will use them again.
Good service and I recommended this garage
Great service, they picked up and dropped off the car from where I worked and sorted the problem.
excellent service. Before seeing these guys I took my car to few other mechanics including Kwik Fit who said the headgasket need replacement . But when I called Gator services and explained the car issues they straight away told me that it is not a headgasket and then fixed the issue much cheaper than other mechanics. They also had to fix issues with the engine sensors for free . I highly recommend this Mechanic , they are experts, honest friendly .
Good service. Highly recomended.
Abstemiously brilliant price and service. Can't recommend them highly enough. They even responded on a Sunday to questions via text!
Car works fine after having it in for a replacement alternator belt. Only downside I have is my side mirror has been damaged and is very loose . They both are very loose now. Apart from this brilliant lads and quick service.
well where do I start with my praise for everyone at VRS REPAIR SERVICES who go that extra mile to put their customers first, after being totally ripped off quote wise by the big high street exhaust companies one of which refused my car because the manifold bolts were seized,VRS came to my help within minutes of posting on the site, cost was quarter than the high street exhaust places and an extremely fast turnaround. before paying any expensive high street fitting centre costs give VRS a call you will not be dissappointed, am so pleased to find these guys. VRS = VALUE RELIABLE SERVICE. Thank you VRS your a credit to the auto trade
Great service from this Garage. Very personable staff great information and explanation every step of the way. As a single woman did not feel unsure of honest quote which happens frequently and in fact felt very secure throughout the repair. Will certainly use again and would definitely recommend them. Thank you VRS.

Top bloke. Great lad is Mark. Put a new timing belt and water pump (at my request). Collected my car and dropped it off same day and even gave me the time of day for a chat and appraisal of the condition of my ageing VW Golf. Pointed out that my flywheel was getting noisy - which I hadn't noticed until he pointed it out. Told me not to worry just yet though.... I'll be getting him to do this other repair at some point. Recommend this garage. Top bloke
It was was the Gateshead branch that did the work not the Newcastle Branch. They were very professional and went above and beyond and made the whole procedure very easy and straightforward. Great guys and can highly recommend to others.
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.
