Great service. Knowledgable staff who were polite and very helpful. Good job done with an update on completion via phone call. Great garage, would recommend and use again.

Cheapest in glasgow.
Friendly, and very informative
Good communication and servicing. Will use again.
The best value for money you can get in and around Crawley by far !!
Great garage, did the regeneration of my dfp in my car which did not fix the problem, they did not charge me for the work they did because it did not work, despite them spending over and hour trying to sort the problem. They were very honest and you don’t get that much anymore and it was thoroughly appreciated.
Many thanks. Will deginitely use again
First class, professional and courteous service completed on time at an excellent price. I will be bringing my car to this garage in the future.

Good fast service from this garage used them a few times
Excellent service. Same day diagnosis, left with them overnight and full repair completed next day. No issues since. Great all round customer service.
Amazing service! Fitted me in at short notice and remained in contact throughout to let me know exactly what was being done. Will defiantly use again and will highly recommend.
Good, honest and speedy service. I wont go anywhere else from now on. The garage offers a great level of customer service and regular communication. Any faults found there's no obligation (pressure) to have the work done (as has been my experience with other garages used previously) I received a quote for new discs and pads that wasnt extortionate and compared to other garages seemed to be the fairest and most comprehensive! While Automotive Components had my car they ran a full diagnostics and fed back the results in a straight forward terms I could understand. They even fixed my Parking light for free without quibble. Another nice touch is they collected my car, made the repair and dropped it back. A very grateful BMW 1-Series owner
Engineer was very helpful and gave us a run through on what was done even had the parts that were removed and showed us all the wear on them .Works were completed in the time that was given , overall excellent service was given by this garage .Was given a price for all the works that needed to be done and the final I’ll was exactly this ,no hidden charges or extras . Will definitely use again and pass on to friends and family. Was also given a car to use on the day even though we hadn’t pre-booked .
Excellent knowledge and indepth information and willingness to rectify any faults. Would highly recommend.

The guys at Eagles Autos, did a great job, working on find a solutions to my car, unfortunately the car being a Lexus every part is more expensive then normal cars, but this is not Eagle Autos fault. Very happy on their service if ever in need of break pads or any other work I would come back. I recommend this garage for their service and punctuality on getting it done.

excellent attention to detail came on saturday,hence the price of 125, well worth the money
Excellent, great price. Took the car for test drive during the inspection, up to 70mph. Phoned me straight after to tell me the good news that the car is in great shape. Would recommend
nice friendly, family business. I would take me car there for repair.
I went to view a car out of my area and without any personal mechanical experience, I required someone with appropriate knowledge who could assist me make the correct choice. Paul wasn't previously known to me, but he was one of the closest to the dealer. His quote was also extremely competitive. His subsequent service was of the highest quality and he ultimately helped to save me probably in the region of £500. The dealer was also very impressed with Paul.

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:
