Very good job done great price
Excellent service. Booked in and work was completed as promised within the timescales agreed. Highly recommended
Took my car down to Silvio and he diagnosed the fault as a catalytic converter fault. Replaced it within 24hrs and the did the back brakes as well. Gave me a courtesy car and got me out of trouble. Cannot recommend this garage enough. Don’t want to though as this will create queues. Thank you and car runs like a dream.
Work carried out as requested within few hours
Excellent service from start to finish, felt comfortable being a woman motorist and everything explained clearly i definately found myself my new go to mechanic. Fitted a air con motor for me whilst fitting a cam belt and water pump , highly recommended!!
Another job was completed with my pre-consent (rear breaks) all was explained so well. Patrick is great at keeping me informed throughout and love his honesty no pressure.Patrick kindly informed me on an advisory basis the the rear break would eventually need doing hence the decision to have both oil change and breaks done.This is a garage that I highly regard not only for the high standard of customer care but the honesty throughout.The price is also good which is another added bonus.Needless to add that I highly recommend ACS Ltd .A FIVE STAR + SERVICE.
Very happy with the work carried out and received helpful advice from Patrick.
Brillaint work and very quick turnaround time. Thankyou!
Friendly, helpful, Very happy with work carried out. and at a very good price!!
Patrick was excellent and so was the delivery driver who picked up my non starter from work and performed all work within a day returning the vehicle to me afterwards. Excellent communication, service and workmanship!
Brilliant garage,My clutch went need the car for work had the choice of 4 other garages that were closer chose this one because of the reviews,glad I did... Brilliant experience, no hassle,very friendly, kept updated what was happening, had car back on the road 24 hrs later... Very happy
Dropped my car off early Saturday morning and it was ready in just over an hour. I wholly recommend this garage. I will be returning in a couple of weeks to get the MOT done.
Good efficient service - would use again
They were very helpful, had 3 quotes over £2500 for new gearbox, but Auto Solutions fix gearbox issues without buying and fitting a new gearbox. Also organised tow truck, MOT and repairs all within 1 week. Thankyou Drew
Really fast and efficient would highly recommend
They managed to locate and fix the electrical fault and drain that had been plaguing my car for months and other garages couldn’t locate. Highly recommend!!
Good experience generally, felt fairly treated and reasonable price. The work did take a couple hours longer than expected, though this may have been due to slow delivery of a part. The garage's communication with me through the day definitely could have been better. I had to keep calling them because they didn't call me with any updates, and when I showed up at the end of the day, the car was ready even though they hadn't yet called me.
Very nice and friendly people. Job done timely and within quoted price. I will definitely recommend and use them again myself.
The service was great and got the big suspension job done quickly. There was a misunderstanding about the pricing but the total quote was competitive.
Panel beating is a job carried out by specialist bodywork technicians who are able to utilise specific tools and techniques to reshape the metal on the body of a car.
If you are involved in an accident, it will often be the body that takes the brunt of the damage as panels on a car are designed to absorb impact and reduce the force of a crash by cushioning the blow.
Even though a car may have suffered a huge impact, it doesn’t always mean that the panels need to be replaced.
Panel bashing involves using a huge variety of tools to manipulate the metal and get it back to it's original shape.
Depending on the extent of the damage, the amount of time and money spent will vary, however the cost is likely to be less than replacing an entire panel.
Getting a respray is a quick and easy job which most specialist body shops will be able to carry out.
Depending on the facilities at the body shop you choose, the time the job will take will vary.
Some specialists will have state of the art spraying booths and work with classic and high end cars, these facilities will be able to deliver the highest quality of respray work as the paint and delivery system will be the best avaliable.
However the job is likely to be more expensive than a conventional body shop.
The time taken and cost of the serivce will depend on the type of paint and the size of the area requiring respray.
Wrapping a car can help protect the paintwork from weather, chipping and rusting as well as UV rays which can fade the paint on your car.
Furthermore if you happen to scratch or scuff your car, the wrapping will take the brunt of the damage and so protect the underlying paint.
You can have your car wrapped to display specific graphics if you are interested in changing the aesthetic of your car. If you want a stripe on your car or other shapes, you can make the request from a specialist who will provide you with a quote.
Before a vinyl wrap is applied; all of the lights, door handles, trims and badges will be removed from the body of the car.
Special car wrapping surface cleaner will then be applied to your car before the wrap is applied.
Welding is an important part of bodywork car repair as it is essential for fixing different pieces of metal together.
Welding is a highly skilled job and should not be attempted unless you are a trained professional.
There are a huge amount of uses for welding on a vehicle as new parts can be created and existing ones can be repaired.
Many different parts of a car can be repaired with the help of a welding expert so do not think your car is written off if something falls out of the engine!
Rust removal can be a job completed without the need of a mechanic, however it depends on the extent of the damage and the area which is affected.
Rust forms when an anode, cathode and electrolyte combine.
The metal in your car acts as the cathode and anode which reacts with water (the electrolyte).
Even if your car is under cover, rust will form as a result of these elements coming together if the climate is humid enough.
You can buy specific products online which can help remove rust which are effective at repairing damage, however its effectiveness will vary on the extent of the damage.
The cost of a rust repair will once more depend on the extent of the damage.
Getting a scratch or scruff is common for cars in the UK however they can be perfectly removed with the right technical knowledge, tools and materials.
It’s important to remember that even if you have suffered from extensive scratching or scuffs, a trained professional has the ability to remove them with precision.
Removing a scratch is far cheaper than having an entire body piece replaced like a bumper so always check with a body shop to see if they can remove a scratch before replacing anything.
On average it doesn’t take too long to have your body work repaired when it comes to scratches and scruffs.
It’s important that you get a car scratch removed as soon as possible as it may get worse over time and the value of your vehicle will reduce!
Having a scratch removed by an expert is the best option unless you are a trained professional, as there are a variety of materials and techniques involved in the process.
The cost and time taken to complete the work will depend entirely on the extent of the damage to the body work so make sure to get as many quotes as possible to avoid paying over the odds.
The mechanic will apply the paint to the car scratch, or car scuff, as part of the bodywork repair. The Paintwork repair required for removing car scratches and car scuffs shouldn’t vary in time or cost greatly, from garage to garage.
The bodywork required on a car restoration will be significant as whole panels are likely to require replacement and the ones which stay as part of the original vehicle, will need to be welded, have rust and scratches removed.
A full restoration make take years and they often do, as mechanics and hobbyists use their spare time and money to build their own cars.
A huge amount of car body work will be required on restorations as all of the components will be required to be removed and fixed back into place during different stages of the work.
Dent repair is one of the biggest parts of body work repair and is essentially the same as panel beating or panel bashing which is covered at the top of this guide.
SMART repair (Small, Medium Area Repair Technology) is a type of service offered by mechanics which is includes the use of specialised tools, paints and materials to provide your car with a good as new finish on an area which may be damaged.
Before the technology existed, if a panel was damaged, the entire piece would have to be replaced meaning more money and time would have to be spent on car maintenance.
The advances in technology mean that the speed and effectiveness of body work repair is significantly improved.
According to YouGov research, 65% of cars in the UK are carrying damage which could easily be repaired using SMART repair.
