Best service I got my car problem was fixed in no time be garage ever
Drivers again provided top quality service with no problems.
Excellent garage I would recommend this to anyone for a car service
Friendly and knowledgeable. They discovered one part didn’t need replacing so knocked that off the bill instead of just doing it. Brilliant. They also replaced an alternator on another of my cars two days ago with no issues.
Excellent job, fast response Highly recommend!
Friendly and efficient service -
Absolutely fantastic!!! I couldn’t fault the service, friendly, professional and just a dream to have found. Thank you so much for the work you provided, last minute notice but accommodated us regardless! 5 star!
Very friendly service and did a great job replacing my cam belt and water pump!
Quick and smoth
Got an appointment for the day after I booked it. I arrived promptly, and they were ready to get started, which was nice. Work was completed quickly and efficiently.
Excellent service they were welcoming and nothing seemed a problem. I was quoted £350 for a clutch replacement but they checked the car first and only needed filters replaced so they did a full service also. Great lads, great service thank you I will be using you again.
Great service will recommend to anyone with gearbox trouble Five stars from me
My go to garage! After discovering the engine management warning light had come on last Sunday evening, I was contacted by Patrick within an hour. He offered to come and collect my car on the Tuesday morning and quoted me a very reasonable price to run a diagnostic. I was kept up to date on the day as to what was wrong with the engine, what needed to be replaced and how much it would cost. My car was returned by 4pm the same day, all fixed and running as should be. Amazing service from Patrick and the team!
I can highly recommend this garage, Patrick was extremely pleasant, efficient and helpful all with a reasonable price. They are extremely reliable with all aspects and keeping us informed all the way through the job. Will use again in the future and highly recommend them to anyone who needs a garage.
Great guy. More issues on my car were found and sorted out and a reasonable price and quick turn around. Will go extra mile to help out when stranded in motorway as well.
Amazing service....this will now be my go to garage.....would highly recommend!!!
Excellent service and happy with the repair.
Great friendly and professional service who found and fixed the existing problem and was given more advice about my vehicle and the diagnostic
Great people! Don't hesitate to contact them if you need repair! Job done with great attitude even I supplied the parts with lots of delay. Thank you for your professional help. I.
Great work as always
Great company, friendly team, work professionally done, will use again. Thank you.
The final fee was higher but that was because I asked Lee to carry out extra work on my car. The guys were efficient, friendly and thorough and got the jobs done really but kept me informed of what they were doing. I will be using them as my go to garage
Late arrival, but efficient alterations to car. Minor advisable which will help me maintain the car, good lads
The clutch replacement was a difficult job, with rounded off bolts in inaccessible areas. The guys stuck with it, found that mass flywheel needed replacing (which I expected may do). Even though Good Friday the guys stayed here and managed to source a flywheel. Although the final bill was higher, the flywheel was additional cost, it was still great value. My local garage would have been at least £700 - £800 higher. These guys are excellent and I would highly recommend. Will definitely use again.
great service & friendly guy, would recommend
Very efficient service. Changed my cambelt and waterpump whilst i was at work. Really fantastic price and it was noticed that the job was not rushed. Glad i got the belt changed as it was beginning to rip! I will certainly be using these guys in future. Good service.
I made a good choice. Staff were My bill friendly and helpful and a very decent complimentary cup of tea! My bill was as quoted over the phone.
The gentleman did all-in-all check for everything and provided detailed report with photos and a phone call, I didn't even need to be present. He fixed a fault himself and pushed the showroom to change break-pads and sort out couple of issues. I'm happy with the service. Price changed to have the plug-in check and test drive included.
The seller pulled out in the end, so no actual service provided from Bob. However he was very quick with communications and made everything very easy. Returned my deposit as soon as he'd been told the sell was no longer taking place.
I had to cancel as buyer messed me about, he gave great advice, not there just to take your money, as he did not charge me anything when I cancelled, he was still happy to tell me that something wasn’t right and not to buy, so nice to receive such genuine professional help, a real gentleman, I highly recommend him, thank you sooooooo much

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:
