Quick service, reliable
Excellent service. The mechanic went to the trouble of discussing what they had done which was very much appreciated. The receptionist was very friendly.will definitely be back.
Good quick helpful servive would happily recommend.
2 years in a row I’ve had a full service and MOT with Drivers Autocentre. Never had any issues car passed first time and definitely the lowest price I could find. Will use again next year
Excellent service highly recommend
excellent garage great guys that work there
Good feedback of diagnostics done. Happy with work undertaken.
Very friendly and professional at the same time. I’m very happy. Highly recommended
I took my car to Goodfellas and even when I was booking over the phone the guys there made sure they explained everything to me and what they would do to the car. I wasn’t hurried off the phone or treated badly at all. Even when they were discovering new problems on my car they would phone me and go over everything to make sure I was confident in what they were doing for me. They had to order a range of new parts for me but they made a lot of effort to minimise the costs. They showed me the parts afterwards to show me the wear and why they had to replace. Overall I can’t give these guys a good enough review, they were superb. I would especially like to thank Lucas for all his help and Martin for taking car of the car. Even though I am not local to the garage I will be taking my car there in the future. Great bunch of guys there who are all extremely friendly and care about the service they provide. 5 stars for them. Thanks again Goodfellas. Will
Patrick is a amazing person, could have charged a lot more as I was getting quotes which were much higher than what Patrick quoted me, I have definitely found a new family mechanic and will recommend to everyone I know Patrick is honest and is a hard worker with no nonsense
Excellent customer service and did a great job with sufficient warranty. Car was collected an delivered in excellent condition. Patrick, Sean and team did an excellent job. I was kept informed during the process and they were always easily contacted. Car driving well after the additional recommendations were added.
I needed the front brake discs and pads replaced on my Toyota Yaris and this was one of the cheaper offers and even offered to collect my car in the morning and deliver it back home once the work was done for free. The garage was nearly 20 miles away from my house! With Patrick already having amazing reviews I immediately accepted the offer and was not disappointed. Patrick was incredibly polite and picked up the car exactly when he told he would and dropped it off just 7 hours later were other garages wanted to keep it overnight and charge more than £200. Will definitely be the garage I stick with in the future.
Patrick did an amazing job with repairing the gearbox to my vehicle that had completely given up the ghost and wouldn't budge.Service was excellent and very speedy.We most especially appreciated the fact that he went the extra mile to do overtime to get the car done on time and delivered the same evening of repair!The car runs smoothly in gear shifts and runs like new, and the quality done in work is top notch with a very competitive unbeatable price. It was also extremely helpful that he was able to pick up and drop off the vehicle back to the house free of charge, which says a lot about the quality of customer service.Patrick now has a permanent customer from us :)
Thank you very much for your help and Mr Patrick have done a GREAT JOB to my car. My engine is very smooth with fast acceleration. I am definately be with you for the next service. Doan in 225 Watford way
Was told turbo had seized.went to piston& rotor for second opinion.within 15 minutes the diognosed problem was a cracked inlet manifold. Saved me a lot of money.cant praise them enough
Completed diagnostic as requested. Timescales for job initially unclear but clarified later. Comprehensive explanation of fault and discussion of options.
Excellent straight to the point service Literally went for an interim service, dropped the car off, came back an hour later, done Easy And also very cheap
Fantastic service. Just need a bigger sign to find it.
Great! Had it picked up and done during work, and dropped off after. Nice and easy, thanks.
Slightly pricier that the other offers, but I got a professional, non-pushy service, and didn't end up paying much more as I normally do with cheaper ones.
Were able to my car the next day Send my car in for an engine light on. They called back within an hour with the diagnosis and proposed course of action (which was cheap and I agreed) Then asked for service which was done the next day. Lastly, they weren’t fussed about pickup time. Good experience overall
good service. job completed on time and on budget
Excellent service. Identified the issue quickly and kept me fully informed. Would definitely use again. My faith in car mechanics has been restored!!
Very helpful, friendly staff, quick and in-depth inspection of my car !!! Thanks guys x
Good service,used Pool St Garage for the past three years and would recommend to anyone. Good pricing, and keep you updated throughout the process. Thanks :)
Excellent service on my Bmw thankyou
Picked up my wife's car as agreed for a battery and MOT. Received a call within the hour to say that they had checked it over and there was a lot of repairs that were needed as it had been standing for a long while. Girls in office provided me with a full quote for repairs and after i spoke to Mark i decided to not bother and get another car. Mark and the girls were so helpful and returned the car to me with no charge. I cannot recommend this garage highly enough as they were honest with me from the start. Fantastic garage and Staff.
only garage that responded to my post. reasonable price & friendly bunch
Checked the car completely inside and outside, under the bonnet, uncovered a few issues and concerns. Very careful attention to details - thanks to him the dealer will fix it before giving the car to me. Did the test drive for me, suggested how to look after it. Unfortunately the dealer did not allow him to connect his diagnostic tools to fully check the car. Definitely recommend Rawshat, a very diligent man!
Lee from assist motors saved me from buying a poor car. He was very clear in his recommendation and showed me all defects. Later this evening upon viewing another car I asked a question by text and he very kindly helped me out again. Very knowledgeable, helpful and professional.
Went over and above and gave the car a very good inspection, very happy with the work carried out and would recommend 100%
Profession, efficient & friendly service with good feedback on the vehicle. Many thanks.

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:
