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

Outstanding customer service from Ade Auto Repairs. Very polite and helpful staff. Easy to speak to over the phone. I also received a warm welcome when I dropped and picked my car. I have already recommended Ade Auto to friends and family.
Ivy helped me through a hard time and made it hassle and stress free. I have been messed around a lot with garages but Galaxy Auto Centre has stuck to their word and got me back on the road on time. 10/10 for Ivy and her team. Highly recommended.
Great service. Prompt reply. All done (which also included a full service) in 4 hours from phone call. Good prices and good people.
Mark is a lovely bloke, work was done as per discussion, took a little longer than expected but I was given a FREE courtesy car for the duration. Teething problems occurred but Marc had it straight back to sort.
Farooq was very helpful and delivered the works on time impressed with the service. I will use his garage again.

A head gasket is effectively a seal which is essential for maintaining the temperature and integrity of a car engine. It's a part responsible for sealing pressure within the engine as well as the distribution of oil and coolant.
Every time you turn on your engine the head gasket has to operate within very high temperatures and pressures, which is exactly what it is designed to do. The engine of your car needs to be cooled constantly as it relies on combustion for power and the head gasket is the core component in performing this job.
If the head gasket is damaged, the engine will quickly overheat and serious damage will be caused. Overheating in the engine of your car will lead to a loss of compression, the mixing of oil, water, coolant as well as a reduction in lubrication.
The head gasket is a very complex piece of equipment and so a variety of materials are needed to build it. It has to be able to withstand and function normally at extreme temperatures and pressure, it also needs to be resistant to all of the chemicals and oils which rush around your car engine.
As a result, each gasket from one car to the next is different as the demands of each engine are unique. Car manufacturers like Ford, Vauxhall and BMW spend millions of pounds every year in the research and development of head gaskets to help manage the pressure and cooling of engines.
Unfortunately, if you need a head gasket repairing, it will be on the more expensive side. However, if you follow the advice below you can learn how to recognise problems with your gasket before something serious happens.
There are other signs to look out for but unless you are a trained mechanic it will be difficult to spot them which is why it is so important that you have your car checked if you suspect there is an issue.
As mentioned above, if a head gasket blows, it can be a costly repair for you as a huge increase in temperature throughout the engine could very easily cause a range of other issues.
If you need a head gasket repair or if you think you might have an issue with the unit, it is vital that you pay attention to the issue, if you ignore the signs above and the gasket blows while you are driving this could cause serious threat to your safety.
A blown head gasket repair can be quite costly for any driver, no matter what car you drive. There is no easy head gasket fix and so you will need to get an experienced mechanic to take a look. The scale does vary for a head gasket repair when looking at different card brands. For a Mercedes, pricing is over £700 on average whereas for a Fiat the price is around £355 on average.
