I’ve used these guys a few times now and have been impressed. Job’s Always carried out well, to time and to the price quoted. Always good advice as well.
Great price for service and MOT.
Great garage very efficient and friendly staff will use this garage from now on
Friendly efficient service, work was done in the quoted time, will definatley use this garage again, but will book direct to save paying extra fees.
I can highly recommend this garage. Friendly staff, cheap and cheerful. The price was higher, because during the repair they found more faulty parts what had to be replaced. I am very satisfied and if necessary I will ask there for help again.
Cant fault the Customer Service, phoned me rightaway with details of work that would need carried out, collected the car and had it back on the road in a day. Price was comparable with other quotes but the years waraanty on the part required swung it. Will probably use them again, even though theyre a bit out of the way from me. Recomended.
Professional approach and done on time. Contact the garage directly and will look after you
I have used this garage before on other cars and they never let me down. Honest advice and tell you truth about the amount of work needed. Would always recommend them and go back again
Very good, happy with everything from the first contact to the completion of the work.
Service and mot Great garage customers service top of the range thanks guys
Brilliant garage, video footage of repair sent to me during work.
Got a service and MOT. Great price and didn't try to force any unnecessary work on me (unlike my last two MOTs), instead just told me what I'd need to keep an eye on for the next few months.
would recommend this garage to anyone thanks for the timing chain car sounds perfect now many thanks to your mechanics will be back in future
Very quick and efficient. Explained problem and sorted faster than expected. Far cheaper than other quotes. Still waiting on emailed receipt, though!
Overall very good. I decided to pay for an extra oil and filter change as well as it was recommended by the garage. That added to the cost but the car is running great since the work. Friendly staff and a quick turnaround.
Price as quoted and job completed in less time than expected! Super quick response time and booking in. Proffesional service and from a very knoladgable and trustworthy mechanic! Will use again without hesitation, thanks!
Great experience dealing with Steven and the team at Kerr-tech. Transparent from start to finish. Great communication and fair prices. Won't hesitate to go back.
I am very happy to recommend Stevie and Kerr Tech. Dpf issues were new to me and can be very serious and Steve was very willing to explain the issue, answer all my questions and explain all the steps required to fix the issue to the standard I requested. He was also willing to spend time finding required replacement parts at costs significantly cheaper than I would have paid at a dealership. All in all I am very happy with the service I recieved. An additional bonus is that Rutherglen station is minutes away meaning that you can quickly and easily get in and out of town.

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.
