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
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
Excellent service and communication! Highly recommended.
Excellent work carried out in a timely manner. Original quote was being stuck with, however once there I asked them to do front brake pads and discs as well as the rear. Additional work was also very well priced. Would definitely use here again
It was my 2nd time at P&R garage, I will say its is the best service in whole UK during past 10 years..
Very happy, kept to the quote and the job was completed by 1pm.
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
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
We had a bit of a mess around and it took longer than agreed originally However I have given five stars because the quality of the work is breathtaking This is a business that doesn’t compromise on quality and I am incredibly happy with the result. I will be using him then again in the future
Excellent and reliable service, exactly what was promised
Great communication and patience from Kyle who explained everything and made sure I was happy before going ahead. Even collected and delivered back as well. Really happy with price and service thanks Kyle & the team.
This was my first time having work done by this Garage, I recently brought a car and was searching for a good deal to have a full service done. I used WhoCanFixMyCar.com to search for various deals, which was best site I have come across looking for reputable dealers. I choose Eagle Auto because I liked that they would take the car wheels off and re-grease and make perfect fit. I also wanted my Header Tank replaced which the garage did as well as carried out my full service. The Car is driving well you do notice the difference, more power and sounds great. I did have the coolant light come on again and I checked the bottle and topped it up with a bit of water and everything was A ok :). I have confidence in this garage because I feel that they are honest in what they said from start to finish and I am very wary or apprehensive of garages in general. I live in Coulsdon, Surrey and don't mind how far I travel to deal with a good garage, I will be using this Garage again because their is a list of things I want them to do, bear in mind I could of still look around for the best deal, but I believe I have found my Garage.
Jobs all done and completed
Very good service overall.
Did exactly what they said they would do.
Quick and very helpful
Thanks for spotting and fixing brewing trouble underneath my car
These guys go above and beyond! Highly recommend them
Good value for money, timely and good service
Jay was brilliant at communicating the what to expect regarding price and time frame and kept us up to date as the parts were received and installed. Very quick turn around and great customer service. Thank you very much! Will certainly use again
Great and friendly service at a decent price. Sam is "The Man" !
Came out on Sunday for a pre purchase inspection. Did a full inspection of the car and a test drive, diaganosed a blown head gasket. Worth every penny!
This garrage carried out a pre-purchase inspection for me. Dave was professional throughout the process. As the OBD port was not functional, he actually insisted that the dealer fixed it so he can carry out a second check. He was very helpful, and my mind was at peace that I was buying a decent car. I will definitely recommend.
I cannot recommend Nadeem from Stanhope Motors enough. Excellent service provided on a pre purchase inspection within 48hrs of contact. Nadeem called me directly after the inspection and sent the report shortly after. Overall excellent service.

For many people, the purchase of a car will be the second most expensive purchase made. The same way you wouldn’t buy a house without getting it thoroughly checked is the same way you shouldn’t buy a used car without getting it checked.
A pre-purchase car inspection is just that, a check before buying a used car. Usually a mobile mechanic will come to the point of sale and inspect the vehicle to make sure you get a sound purchase.
A pre-purchase car inspection is advisable when purchasing a used a car. You’ve found a car you really like in the perfect colour with the ideal mileage, however at this point you know nothing else apart from what the seller tells you. A pre-purchase car inspection allows you to buy the car with confidence avoiding a potential disaster!
Pre-purchase car inspections are not to be used for warranty but to provide peace of mind when making the purchase. For example, you may do a vehicle background check (such as a HPI check) however if a vehicle has been repaired without the knowledge of the insurer there will be no evidence in any search, however a mechanic may be able to pick up on some of the signs. Whether a vehicle is priced at £2000 or £20,000 the things to look out for are the same.
Inspections are extremely useful if as a driver you’re not sure what to be looking out for, what the bench mark is for comparison and you don’t feel comfortable taking the car for a test drive. An ideal test drive should be about 20 minutes. How does the car react when braking, during gear changes, or when accelerating? A quick drive down the street isn’t enough of an inspection.
Depending on your location, and the distance between the vehicles location and the mechanic, pre-purchase car inspections can begin from as little as £20 and be around the £150 mark at the top end. Price is dependent on the type of vehicle and the checklist of what is inspected. It’s important to confirm with the mechanic what exactly will be checked before deciding if it’s suitable for you.
What is included in a pre-purchase car inspection will vary greatly based on the price you are charged. As the job requires no more than a mechanics time, the more they charge, the more time they will likely spend on the inspection. Therefore, a cheap £20 inspection might sound great but that means the mechanic will spend no more than 20-30 minutes with the car. We would always advise asking the mechanic to include a breakdown of what they will inspect before you accept a quote.
A more comprehensive inspection will likely be more expensive but may include:
