A really good service, picked up and dropped off my car, cleaned inside and out, excellent job!
Very happy with the work undertaken , not happy with the call to say that the quote was wrong as the quote was in fact for one side not both.The result was the car disc and pads had been replaced as per the job but the price was for one not two,the fee would be ...would I be happy....No The price dropped and dropped but finished at £135.39 with its either that or we could take them off.The work had been done,the fee was paid and I received my car back. Advice would be make sure your quote is correct at the time ..
First time to use this garage and I was impressed. We had to have a courtesy car which was good value but the initial quote came to over £1000 which nearly gave us a heart attack as was only in for mot and service. However, we ended up needing new pads, discs and tyres. We managed to get it down to approx £600 which got us back on the road legally again. Excellent communication and service throughout.. will use again!

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.
