Great service, called when they said they would and always friendly and helpful
absolutely top notch garage the work they did for me outstanding mot passed today no adviseries and the price for the work done very very reasonable very pleased indeed will be going back again if needed they got my vote
Pleased with the work though did have to wait a while after alloted time for the work to be carried out. Happy with result.
Amazing service, very competent mechanic (Michael), and a very helpful owner Adam. The work required for my car was quite technical but these guys went about it very nicely and got it done on time. I am going to be a regular customer now:)
Fixed my initial problem on car, they even collected it from my house as I was at work. Cost me around 30 pound, one problem was my car mats were covered in grime afterwards I don't mind the car exterior coming back dirty but the original mats are stained and I found a food box half eaten left in the rear passenger foot well. If you don't mind cleaning up food and grime stuck in your cream floor mats then this is the place to use.
Very good smart repair on bodywork of my car
Did extremely quickly, highly recommended
Contacted Hayers motor repairs through web-chat on whocanfixmycar.com and received speedy responses to my enquiries on a clutch replacement. They were the cheapest even after I requested a specified clutch. Customer service was honest and timely. The garage did exactly what I asked and the Job was sorted with a full explanation of work completed and faults found. Couldn't give a full five-star rating as I didn't know if my car was secure overnight for parking due to lack of carpark and the garage was full and busy inside. I would recommend this garage.
Friendly staff ,did an excellent job and very reasonable price
I am very happy with the service provided by this garage, they were extremely helpful and did the rear and front brake pads for me,and all done in a couple of hours.
Picked my car up and had it fixed the same day
Brilliant service picked my car up fromBbirmingham 8.30am kept for 2 days new clutch plus service great price. Did it 4 months ago waiting to see how it went no problem would recommend.
Had my clutch replaced on my Cleo here a few weeks back now and couldn't really fault their customer service. Original quote was £260 which I was very sceptical about, considering Halford wanted nearly £800 off me which was a definite no. In the end cost £400 because a couple of bits were worn out as well which considering you're getting a quote without anyone actually looking at the car it's expected to go up a bit.but in the end new clutch and a service and everything works perfectly 3 weeks on.drives like a brand new car and they managed to do it in a day even with me forgetting to give them the locking nuts so they couldn't start the work till 11 and I had the car back at 4.very happy with all the work and service done.would recommend completely!
Good service, very pleased
good service price was right I will be using them from now on
Very helpful, they listened and advised. I would recommend these 100% polite. I will be using them in future
Honest and accurate assessment of my car, with quick service and got me back on the road next day. Ex Peugeot mechanic who knows his stuff and offers friendly service, will use again if the need arises and fully recommend - many thanks Jon:-)
Reviews read true very honest man, reasonable price and walked away with alot more knowledge
Very pleasant gentleman who is the owner of the garage. Job done the same day. Also got him to put on new windscreen wipers at a reasonable price. Will go to him to get my MOT done in a few weeks too. Used dustsheets in the car to avoid making a mess. Very good service I say and a hidden gem in our locality.
Excellent customer service, high quality job and would definitely recommend to others

Diesel Particulate Filters are extremely important to have in your vehicle. The filter captures and stores exhaust soot in order to help reduce emissions coming from diesel cars.
Ever since 2009, the Euro 5 standard has been enforced, a rule which ensures all new diesel cars must have particulate filters fitted.
These pieces of equipment were introduced in an effort to reduce the particle and soot emissions from diesel engines. Diesel Particulate filters (DPF) trap soot before it blows out of an exhaust and like any filter, it requires cleaning in order to maintain performance.
Fortunately the filter itself has self-cleaning capabilities known as regeneration.
There are two types of regeneration which can be carried out on your car.
This process happens automatically while the exhaust is at a high temperature which will usually occur when you are driving down a motorway or quickly down an A-road. However, as many vehicles aren’t always being driven at high speeds, an alternative system for regeneration exists.
This method of cleaning the DFP is controlled by an engine management computer and happens automatically when the filter reaches 45% of its limit. The process is initiated by the fuel injection being increased which makes the exhaust heat up and therefore clear the filter. However, if your drive is a short one and the process tries to initiate, it will not be able to properly clear the filter, in this eventuality, the warning light in your car will come on.
A drive of about ten minutes at a speed of around 40mph should be adequate for the process to be successful.
If these issues are effecting your car it is almost certain that you will need your filter replacing which is likely to cost upwards of £1000 including diagnostic and labour time.
And if you were thinking of saving all of that time and money by removing the filter completely, think again, it’s illegal to remove the DPF.
The Department for Transport states that it is an offence to remove the filter or modify the piece of equipment in a way which would result in the vehicle failing air pollutant emission standards. Breaking the law will result in the vehicle not being road worthy so if you are ever offered to have your filter removed, make sure to keep this in mind.
Every MOT now includes a check for the DPF and a smoke test from the exhaust so there is very little chance of getting away with removing the filter.
If you need to have the filter regenerated manually, you must take your vehicle to a trained professional immediately. They will initiate a process where the exhaust is heated up to a point where regeneration happens and soot is cleared from the filter.
