Booked in for full service and mot , quote £119, excellent service addition cost due to informing me that the front brake pads where needing replaced ie only 2mm left on them ,and puncture repair was kept up to date. and picked car up same day
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 straight to the point.
These guys are brilliant, and always offer the best service at the best price. I've used them 3 times now and wont be going anywhere else. They collect from my work and always have it back, work complete the same day. Highly recommended! A+++

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 .
What can I say? These guys are absolutely fantastic. (1) Communication via site and phone: Brilliant. At all times, they kept me informed of what was going on, usually via the website, but also by phone when it was necessary. The work: My car had failed its MOT at KwikFit (who I had become very suspicious of, in terms of the work they claimed they were doing). ACM identified many additional failures. At first, I was sceptical, but it soon became apparent that KwikFit had missed many blatant and obvious faults. Had I of allowed KwikFit to have done the "necessary work" I would have been driving one seriously dangerous car. ACM were open and transparent, and whilst I was a little unsure over a weekend period if they weren't drawing out the work, they came through extremely well for me. I cannot fault the work they have done, and why. Nor can I fault the Customer Services who were absolutely excellent. The work carried out was to an excellent standard. They did not push me to have unnecessary work done, instead they advised me of a minor fault and left it in my hands. Although the cost of the work for my car to pass its MOT was more than I had imagined, they explained thoroughly what they had done, and why it was necessary, leaving me in no doubt that they had done the work in a cost-effective way. I would thoroughly recommend ACM, and have already asked them to service my new car as I trust them implicitly.
Full service and MOT - car running so much smoother etc . No nonsense garage that does the job that is required and does it well !!
I've used Eastern Garage a few times now and they quickly became my preferred garage to go to. They are always polite, helpful and honest. They always explain clearly what the issue is and give accurate quotes before any work is carried out. Each time I have gone to them, I have been completely satisfied with the service and the price. Highly Recommended.
Fantastic, more than happy to change times as I couldn’t make the original time. Great value and excellent service, would highly recommended!

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.
