Very friendly staff, they know exactly what they do . Good prices ! I defenetly recomend this garage .
Very communicative throughout the booking process and incredibly helpful in liaising with the warranty company. Work completed quickly and professionally. Courtesy car provided, but don't expect a 'courtesy car' it is a rather old Honda civic. Handy to have but not wht you would ordinarily get. Disappointingly my car smelt of cigarette smoke when I collected the car. I questioned it and was told that they would not smoke in the car but probably had the windows open when smoking nearby. The car will need to be valeted now at a cost to me. Probably best to be clear on your expectations on this in advance to avoid this!
Job completed on time and at agreed price per quotation. Very happy with the service. Work also came with 12 / 24 month guarantee.
The garage was amazing! Sent updates and photos throughout all the works being done. We got given a courtesy car for free which was a lifesaver. Work was done on time and the car has been running smoothly ever since. I would highly recommend. I will be using this garage from now on if ever something goes wrong.
Excellent service. Got my car in straight away and had it fixed the same day. Highly recommended.
Excellent service - highly recommend - Had FULL SERVICE + MOT on my BMW X3. Great communication !
The only down side was trying to find it. Tucked away, in the end I had to ask someone for help!! A sign out by the tire place would be great as I was unsure if I could keep driving down that way!! The staff were friendly.
Great collection/drop off service am very pleased
Great service and a very good price
Good experience. They picked up my car for MOT and service at a better price I could find anywhere else. They advised me on some work that needed doing, carried out the work, and I had the car dropped back to me the next day. Can't fault the service or prices offered at all. Thanks
Excellent prompt service.
I have used this garage on many occasions now and I can honestly say these guy's are fantastic always happy to help will continue to use for all my repairs
pleasant staff friendly and helpful
No problems. Would use again
Took care of repair in a timely fashion.
Carl of a2bWatford fixed my car on a same-day service. He was punctual, did a great job and was exceptionally an interesting and good to talk with guy. I'd strongly recommend them.
Nice bloke, cleared most fault codes for me as requested but diagnostic tool did not cover my vehicle, but appreciate the journey made for me on saturday morning.
Great service, very friendly and gave lots of helpful advice.
Very knowledgeable, helpful, prompt and went the extra mile when the job didn't turn out as easy as it first appeared. Highly recommended.
Very helpful and knowledgeable service, would recommend to others
These guys were very very helpful and quick to get the job done.Excellent communication too and fair prices.Highly recommended!
Excellent service provided by MT Auto Services. Turned up on time, really quick and thorough. Will be returning. Priced as quote.
Excellent service, explained fully what caused problem and how it was fixed, a lot cheaper than dealership wanted, highly recommended
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
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.
Really good garage, nice to meet someone you can trust, got them to do some other jobs for me as well. would highly recommend.
Quick response to my request, very knowledgeable and excellent service.
Collected my Car, kept me updated throughout with lots of photos showing job being done which I appreciated. Brought Car back to me. Price was as arrange. Old parts given back to me. Very happy and will be happy to use again. Thank you
The price was higher than the initial quote as I requested extra work on the air conditioning system. Work was finished on time and everything is working fine.
Very friendly, the mechanics were knowledgeable (I have an MSc in engineering, so I believe I can tell). The job was done exactly on time (no waiting). Will visit again.
Cannot fault the team at Motorwerks - if I could give you more stars I would! They managed to fit me in really quickly and provided excellent service right from the start. I thought a few bits (brakes, etc) had to be done on the car and after a detailed check and diagnostics of my car (which was all kindly done for free!), Motorwerks came back to me and said that is wasn't necessary at this time. These guys are really genuine and gave honest advice about my car. I felt they took great care and time to be really thorough when replacing the cambelt (which was excellent value for money) and did a really professional job. My car now drives like a dream! I will definitely be back and recommending to my friends and family. Thanks again Elie and the team :D
The cost of servicing, MOT and repairs differ across the country and Cambelt Change is not any different. Labour rates will be higher or lower depending on where in the country you are. Take a look below at the average quote in St Albans for Cambelt Change on WhoCanFixMyCar.com for some of our top car makes.
This table uses data from quotes provided on WhoCanFixMyCar.com between 21/04/2019 and 20/07/2019.
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.
