First class service. Very pleased with the work and time take. Fully recommend this garage. Patrick kept me informed and loaned me a small courtesy car
Richard did everything I asked and more I highly recommend
Amazing work and pickup time, fitted new spark plugs free of charge! Even gave advice on what to look out for and more potential issues with the car will use this garage again!
Marvelous service, I've never encountered a garage that picks up your car, leaves a courtesy car for your use, does the work and drops the car back to your door. Incredible!! I was kept informed of all other needs and prices and Patrick was knowledgeable and helpful without making me feel overwhelmed with terminologies. My ride runs like a dream now. I would wholeheartedly recommend this garage.
I have not had the work carried out yet because it is more expensive than I first thought, but I may well do sometime in the future.
Very professional and friendly , very confident to recommend and use again as really happy with their work .
Very pleased with service, they picked up car and dropped it off and fixed the engine misfiring, the culprit was a cracked coolant tank in the engine causing overheating. Very professional outfit, only reservation was the car still showing lights on dashboard when I start it up - would have been helpful to have been told this before getting car back as I may have wanted more work to be carried out to check reasons why warning lights coming on. Nevertheless I will use them again.
Top notch customer service. Friendly staff and owner.
excellent to deal with, clear and concise on the phone and willing to work with the customer in terms of flexibility - ordered my part without me even paying for it before i brought the car over and then sorted the car in a few hours. would use again, no problem. thanks guys
Good service, work done quickly, polite and clean. Thanks!
came to them to get a new clutch for my car as my one was experiencing clutch slipping, and they did an excellent job in replacing the clutch at a reasonable price! very happy with the work done and I can feel a significant improvement in the car's drive. would recommend
Lovely staff at the garage. The pick up and drop off service is great when you are working and need the car sorted!
Just had my car returned from having a full service at this garage, I’m so pleased, the staff were lovely, great with communication and very thorough with the service & checks. The free collection & drop off they offer was a life saver for me as a busy mum and they even went above & beyond the service for me st no extra cost. honestly the best garage I’ve delt with so far, as a woman I always worry about being conned or ripped off, but NOT at this place & these guys have just got themselves a customer for life. Thank you so much
Prompt service on pick up and delivery. Had a service and MOT turned round to me in 7 hours which was great. Used Genuine Peugeot parts for replacement so kept my car in warranty and found some issues that the MOT missed as well. All in all good experience.
Brilliant work was out there all day working on it, very happy customer. Highly recommend. Thank you
Slight delay in getting to me but service was cheap, friendly and efficient. Lee worked until 19:30 to sort the problem - I would highly recommend.
Excellent chap. nice, friendly, keen to solve the problem. Although the issue was temporarily corrected, Lee was still keen to research out of hours for a spare part for me and arrange fitting at a later date.
perfect from start to finish , lee arrived on time , got straight on with the job, and all was completed to a high standard, very happy with assist autos .
superb service and great value for money will use again and recommend to to friends

We have recently had a recon gearbox and clutch replacement undertaken by this Company and would like to record that we are very happy with the experience. There was a desire to provide service, a politeness and we now have a car that is a delight to drive at what we believe to be a fair price. The "pick up and return" of the vehicle to our home address was a great advantage and we would be quite happy to use this Company again.
Great service, done what was req ..and very helpful .. Will get RPM too carry out further work on my van

A Gearbox is the device used to increase and decrease torque, a twisting force which causes rotation, through the increase or reduction of speed. Ultimately, the Gearbox is used to change the speed of the vehicle.
Auto gearbox repairs are so common as the parts naturally wear down over time due to the fact that a massive amount of friction is caused between parts when a car is driven.
There are a huge number of issues that could cause a gearbox to fail and that is why we have written this guide, to help you understand what is involved with gearbox repairs.
If you are putting your car into a gear, only for it to slip out, it’s obvious you have a fault. A likely cause is that the gears themselves will be worn down.
You will have to have the parts replaced as a result of the damage as it will only get worse as time progresses.
It would also be wise to check your transmission fluid levels as the parts may have worn down as a result of low lubricants.
Like many of the issues listed on this guide, low levels of transmission fluid can be the reason for the problem.
If you are hearing more noise than usual from your car while it is neutral, then check the levels of fluid and try topping it up.
If this does not resolve the problem, then the most likely cause will be worn down gearbox parts.
As soon as you see ‘Service Engine Soon’ in yellow on your dashboard, that is exactly what you should do as it is an indicator that something is about to go wrong or already has.
There are a variety of sensors on different parts of your car including ones on the transmission. They are in place to detect specific signs of an issue developing such as vibrations or jerks which you may not be able to see, hear or feel.
Paying attention to the light could help you save money on a gearbox repair so make sure to do so!
A dragging clutch is caused when the flywheel and clutch fail to disengage which makes changing gears almost impossible.
This gearbox problem will likely be accompanied by a grinding noise being emitted every time you try to change gears.
Luckily a gearbox repair cost will not be extortionate if you are suffering from this problem.
If the clutch has too much slack in the pedal then the linkage between the clutch disk and the pedal wont be able to pull the two parts apart.
Therefore, the linkage simply needs to be tightened or replaced which isn't as expensive as other gearbox repairs.
If your car simply refuses to go into a specific gear it is worth checking the level of you fluid as this is a common issue, though can be resolved by topping the liquid up.
There are other potential issues that would prevent you being able to go into a specific gear.
Occasionally the computer which is part of your car can be the source of the problem, alternatively the shift cables could require adjusting.
A burning smell in a car is never a good sign and as soon as you notice it is vital that you call a mobile mechanic or break down assistance in order to diagnose the problem and find a solution.
When it comes to the gearbox, a burning smell can be the result of transmission fluid overheating.
If the fluid system fails, then other parts of the system will suffer as a result.
Transmission fluid acts as lubricant and a cooling agent for the moving parts of a transmission as they are in constant perpetual motion as a car is driven, this causes friction and a build-up of heat.
Therefore a lack of transmission fluid will be harmful to these parts and a burning smell will be emitted.
If you ignore the burning smell in your car then an entire transmission replacement is likely to be required.
A car should not grind or shake at all so do not think that its normal even if it is gradual and only minor.
If ignored the issue will get worse and you will end up incurring a higher gearbox repair cost.
Grinding and shaking is a common symptom of a faulty gearbox when you move from one gear to the next.
There may even be an issue with the clutch if you feel these effects after you change gears.
If so it is likely that your clutch will need replacing.
The gear synchronizers in your car may be also be badly damaged or worn down if you feel shaking or grinding.
The transmission system can only operate while automatic transmission fluid lubricates, cleans and conditions the seals while acting as hydraulic fluid.
Even if the transmission fluid is below normal levels, your car will suffer and if it all leaks, you will face serious problems.
Automatic transmission fluid (ATF) is bright red and, surprisingly, smells sweet (that is if everything is in working order).
If you detect a leak and the fluid fits this description then you are in luck, all that you require is a hole to be filled.
However, if you come across liquid which is dark and emits a burning smell then the issue is likely to be worse.
Typically this will require the entire transmission system to be flushed or changed as it has become contaminated and is no longer suitable for use in the engine.
ATF liquid is different to motor oil as the engine doesn’t consume any of it, therefore, if it is below its normal level, it’s a fact that you have a leak.
If you would like to check the fluid level, try to locate the transmission case (close to the fill plug) and perform a visual assessment.
Once more, if you have a leak, it is essential that you address the issue and find a clutch or gearbox specialist using WhoCanFixMyCar as we will be able to provide you with a range of quotes from local mechanics.
If you try to move into a certain gear and you feel resistance, or the gearstick keeps popping out, then there is definitely an issue.
There should not be any pushback when you go into gear and so if you even feel the slightest change you should take your car to a gearbox specialist or automatic gearbox specialist as soon as possible.
Typically, this is a problem involving the clutch as well so be prepared to replace it if you run into this type of issue.
It can be difficult to diagnose the extent of a gearbox problem which involves the clutch, so the best advice is to take your car into a clutch and gearbox specialist as mentioned above.
Hearing a strange noise from your car is probably the best way to know that something isn’t right.
There are a plethora of issues which could be causing a noise to come from your car engine and the gearbox is one system which could be causing a new sound.
The specific noise will vary greatly on the model of the car, part and specific issue so it is almost impossible to specifically identify an issue from a sound alone.
The biggest indicator that your gearbox has an issue will be if you hear a clunking noise when you shift gears which sound mechanical, abrupt and loud.
The same can be said of automatic gearboxes, if you notice a clunking noise as you accelerate, slow down or drive on an incline, it would be indicative of an issue with the transmission.
Even if the noise sounds severe, it may be a minor issue, however it will turn into a major one if you do not diagnose the transmission problem.
The gearbox repair cost will spiral if you neglect to address the problem.
Whether you need to replace an automatic gearbox or replace a manual gearbox, the price will vary from one garage to the next and the cost will also vary on the model of the car.
A reconditioned gearbox is a part which has been broken but has been fixed by a transmission expert. If you suffer from a gearbox problem, there is the worry about spending money on new parts, however, it is often possible to salvage engine parts and a reconditioned gearbox is ideal from those wanting to avoid spending money on expensive new parts.
Reconditioned gearbox prices vary depending on the car model however it is always worth shopping around for the best price.
