Great services overall. It’s just a shame my van was too far gone and not worth fixing
Great service provided by Drew and Nathan, would definitely recommend, fitted a new clutch to my vw caddy, hassle free. Would/will use again..
Fantastic service quick and efficient will use again. Highly recommended
Great service and on time
Job done at an extremely good price (almost 1/3rd of main dealer cost) Car picked up and delivered back. No complaints at all. Will certainly use again and recommend to anybody.
Fantastic service from Auto Solutions. Collected my car and re-delivered to my house fixed within 48 hours. Price rose slightly by my own choosing due to them suggesting having the timing belt replaced whilst they had already stripped the car back. Highly recommend them and will likely be using them again in the future, super fast service.
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.
Quick and good value.
Very competitive price,job completed on time and the car runs well.I would certainly use them again in the future.
Everything went well at a reasonable price
Fixed my reverse light fault and done good deal on a new battery-;Good fellers!!
Fabulous service I would definitely recommend this garage. My car needed a new master cylinder too and the guy explain what to do to bed it in. Sure enough all was fine within a few miles
Competitive price. Good efficient work, would use them again.
Great work!! I spend lot of money trying to find the problem in my engine and the issue never was solved. Piston&rotor were the first who diagnosed the problem properly and gave me price straight away. I had a valve burnt. All quotation from other garage exceeded easily £1000. Piston& rotor did it for half price and even they changed 2 ignition coils with no extra charge because I told them I didn’t have to much money for the reparation. Have you ever heard something like that in a garage???? I was almost to scrap my car and Piston&rotor brought it to the life again. Thanks so much!!!!!
fantastic service from start to finish will definitely use them again and recommend to everyone i know
Excellent service. Picked up and delivered as promised, price exactly as quoted .
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
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.
The specific jobs included in this type of body work are;
