That was for new shocks,front discs and pads,2 front 19in tyres and a major service. All done in a day brilliant service. Car going great thanks Jamie
As per usual the service was fast, friendly and efficient. Regularly use this garage for company vehicle as well as my own.
Brilliant service from the guys, work was carried out efficiently (full service and MOT). Answered any questions in a friendly manner, wouldn’t hesitate to book again. Best price i could find and the friendly attitude of staff was a nice bonus.
Although pricey I was kept to date, my car was picked up and dropped off and the team went the extra mile to get it done that day. Would thoroughly recommend
Great service from start to finish. Kept in touch regarding what was needed for car to get through the MOT
Did exactly as stated and picked up an important safety issue with the vehicle. Would definitely use again
Top bloke would highly recommend.
Some confusion with job registration. Had to remind about booked appointment. But actual job was done promptly. Pleased with service
The guys were so good I took my car for dynostics and found it needed a new clutch and it was done in a day great service from everyone
They try very hard to make sure the customer is happy. And spotted work I was aware needed doing. I am a proficient amateur but did not want to do my own mini clutch outside.
Great service at a great price
Highly recommended, very competetive price.
Really trustworthy and down to earth
They were really helpful and accommodating, and really reasonably priced for the work carried out, had a new cluch and duelmass flywheel . Will definitely use them again
Great Service! It is really difficult to find a person who you can trust with your car, and Patrick is that person! Honest and straight to the point. Finally I found someone I can trust and who can advise on my car's service! Recommend and will be my Mechanic from now on! Thank you Patrick and your team for the excellent service!
Upon inspection it was fond the internal knuckle was also damaged and they were quick to source a used part and replace with only cost for part. I find this garage to be genuine and explain the issue up front with photo evidence of damage and repair. Will use again.
This company has completely restored my faith in mechanics absolutely. They did exactly what they said they were going to do and communication was full marks from start to finish. I have no hesitation in recommending them at all times. I’m very grateful they are around.
I don’t think words will express how happy I am with Patrick and the work completed by his team. I am very sceptical where garages are concerned but from the first call with Patrick to the moment I collected my vehicle, it felt honest and genuine. My car is a lease vehicle so it was imperative the work carried out was of a high standard. Patrick didn’t only reassure me over the phone but when I did go and see him, took me around the garage showing work they had completed and in the process of completing. Only a confident person would be willing to do that. Also, the small touches go a long way. When I called up, he addressed me instantly by my name. Clearly had my number saved so it shows I wasn’t just “another customer”. The price was very competitive, the care and attention was second to none and I’ve said to Patrick, fingers crossed I never see him again, but if I ever do need work done, I know I’ll be going straight to him with no hesitation.
Good price and service
Drew was really polite and the guys did a great and a efficient job on changing my brakes and discs... They provided me and my dog a warm place to sit and wait for the car and gave me advise on how to drive it until the brakes broke in! Highly recommended
Great service, quick turn over and fantastic price!
Very good service quick and no issues
I’ve been using this garage at current and previous location for years. Always helpful and good value for money. Taken both our cars here this week and got the usual great service.
Always offer competitive price and good service. Got charged for service and first mot as agreed. No extras added, like you usually get advised elsewhere. Definitely recommend.
Great stuff. Pleasant people.
Third time there. Good as always.
Job completed in time advised, offered to check and top up coolant foc after a week
Excellent, was all complete in no time, very happy as usual with INnOut Wednesbury
Fab thank you
Excellent garage, sorted my mot repairs without hesitation, I will definitely recommend and re use there services
Although booked for £25 they had an offer on so MOT was only £20. They were then able to order and fit a new rear numberplate in 30-40 mins. Great, honest service. Will definitely be back.
Great knowledgable mechanics, accommodating and great customer service, the best. Will use in the future.
Initially my car failed its mot, which was the same fault I had last year but didn't fail on that, which is worrying considering what could happen if the cv gaiter broke. This was quite reasonable in price to repair, however I had numerous advisories, such as 2 front tyres with tracking, 2 rear shockers, which I had rectified at the same time and this reflects the overall price, which I thought was a reasonable price for all the work. The staff were polite and friendly, the customer lounge/reception was clean and warm. I didn't notice any refreshment facilities however there is a Starbucks across the road, and there is Asda just down the road. I will be in touch again shortly for a service, I will definitely be using again. Thank you.

Hopefully our FAQ section has answered some of the questions you may have about MOT services in . However, if you would like more information, we have the produced the following guide to help you understand the subject in greater detail.
An MOT is a service provided by garages which every car is legally required to have carried out.
A cars roadworthiness will be checked during the MOT as each major component is inspected by a trained professional. A garage has to have authorisation from the DVSA to carry out an MOT as they have to meet the minimum requirement to carry out the inspection.
You don’t need to take your car for an MOT for three years if you buy and register it brand new, however as soon as the three years are up, it is a legal requirement that you take your car for an MOT annually.
Below we have included some useful information on what is checked during your MOT as well as things you can do to increase your chances of passing at the first attempt.
The exhaust system is made up of several parts and components which all need to be checked individually. The main issue that mechanics will be looking out for is leakage of fumes or liquid, as these are the most common issues associated with the exhaust system.
There is very little you can do to help your car pass an MOT if there is a problem with this system as a hole cannot be blocked up unless you are a trained professional.
The fuel system will also get checked for leaks however, by checking that the tank cap is sealed properly, you may be able to avoid failing your MOT for a minor issue.
The emissions of a car must fall below specific legal limits which means that if your car produces too much carbon monoxide or hydrocarbons, it will fail its MOT.
You can increase your chances of passing an MOT by addressing the problem before having the service carried out as it is easy to diagnose a problem with your fuel emission levels.
If your exhaust emits excessive blue or black smoke when the engine is switched on and while driving, there is a high chance that there is an issue. By addressing it early you can avoid failing the MOT test.
One in ten cars fail their MOT due to tyre issues. The mechanic will be checking the tread of the tyre when carrying out the MOT as well as looking for damage such as lumps, bulges or tears.
A tyre tread should be at least 1.6mm and be the correct type as they need to be able to maintain the speed and weight of the car while its being driven.
You can use a tread depth gauge to check if your tyres are safe to drive on and whether they will pass the MOT, if the tread is less than 1.6mm, your car will fail.
It is also important to ensure your tyres are fully inflated and the pressure is correct as this is another issue which will likely result in failure.
The parts being checked will consist of windscreen wipers, windscreen, wing mirrors, rear view mirror and windows. It will be obvious that you will fail your MOT if your view of the road around you is impeded.
This could be caused by broken or missing mirrors as well as cracked or heavily chipped windows.
Your rear view mirrors and wing mirrors must be able to move while remaining secure to provide a driver with an adequate view of the road. The wipers and washers are also included in checks as they must be able to clean the windows effectively.
You will fail your MOT if there is damage or an obstruction in your windows bigger than 10mm within the immediate viewing area and 40mm anywhere else.
You can improve your chances of passing your MOT by making sure you buy new wiper blades at least once a year and thouroughly checking all of your windows.
You should also ensure your screen wash reservoir is fully topped up as it will be checked during the MOT.
A wide ranging inspection will be carried out with the body, engine mountings, seats, doors and chassis. They are required to be completely free of erosion and cannot have any sharp edges which could cause injury.
You must also have your registration plates attached to your car which need to be visible from 20 meters away.
Your car should also be shown to display a vehicle identification number (VIN) which should be etched onto the body or chassis.
The speedometer must also be fully secure and able to light up.
Every seatbelt in the vehicle must be fully functional as this will be checked rigorously by the inspector.
Almost a third of all MOT failures are due to light, electrical or reflector failure. The front, rear, brake, fog, indicator, registration plate and reflectors must adhere to the following standards;
If one of the bulbs in your car breaks you can buy a replacement relatively easily which is something you should do if you are due an MOT.
Make sure to consult your owners handbook before buying a bulb to discover the correct unit.
The horn on your car must also be full working order and be able to deliver a strong uniform note which can be heard by another driver on the road.
The battery in your car will also be checked for leakage and stability within the engine.
Wiring will be inspected for wear and tear and cannot be at the point of breaking.
If you have a towbar for a trailer, the socket will be checked as it must be able to send power to the indicators on the trailer itself.
The mechanic carrying out the MOT will be inspecting the condition of the steering wheels by pushing the steering system in numerous directions as well as assessing the system for damage on specific components.
If your car has a locking devise, this will also be checked when the vehicle is stationary and the engine is not running.
If you have power steering, there must be a correct amount of fluid in the reservoir.
The suspension on your car will be checked visually as the springs and shock absorbers will be inspected for corrosion, distortion or fracture.
We have an in-depth page dedicated to steering and suspension which you can access by clicking here.
The overall condition of your brakes and all of the components that make up the system will be inspected thoroughly.
A specific break test will be performed to ensure your car has the correct stopping power to be on the road.
