Overall very good. I decided to pay for an extra oil and filter change as well as it was recommended by the garage. That added to the cost but the car is running great since the work. Friendly staff and a quick turnaround.
From booking through David, to Jamie’s excellent customer service, also William who carried out the work on my car keeping me updated as he went along. Can’t recommend this Garage highly enough, I’ll certainly use again.
I would recommend this garage. The staff were friendly and happy to help. The work was completed quickly and they kept me updated via my phone.
Was very happy with the service I received and would use them again
Reasonable price and good service
Excellent, friendly service
Thanks Drew & the guys , using this garage for a while now car mot & full serviced no problem thanks again
Yes. They did more work than original estimate and appeared to have done a good job and good value . Very helpful.
Cracking service from these guys, picked my car up and had phoned with a price within 2 hours. Work was done that day, car feels much better and advised of a couple of things still needing done. Car was dropped back off also at no extra cost.
Paid exactly what was quoted. Car collected, returned and repaired with no issues.
Service was quick and excellent. Aircon is now very cold. No complaints whatsoever.
Great service throughout. The only garage to pick up the phone after they had sent me the initial quote and then to confirm the booking on the day Pleased with the service and work, would recommend
Can not recommend enough, final price included a service. Pick up and drop off of vehicle. Friendly helpful staff. Will definitely be my first choice in the future.
Very impressed with Goodfellas autoz,honest up front and thorough with diagnostics. Couldn't find a fault so offered to get it looked at with another garage (that they know well) for free
The final price was for both front ball valves. As usual a very professional job. The job was booked in and completed all in the same day. All work was carried out very professionally.
Diagnosed my car for free, quickly found the problem and offered me a quote. Thank you
Good, straight talking and reliable time keeping. Job completed succesfully - however, ended up paying more than I had hoped but given clear reasons why (whole electric window motor had to be replaced as an integrated unit even though only part of it was broken/malfunctioning)
Great work, very competitive price
Excellent service, from collection to completion and car delivery, everything went smoothly without any issues.
Hi had problems of trust, I told Patrick about that issues due to bad experience in the past. But Patrick was very helpful all the time, he kept me informed of all process by sending me photos of the progress. I definitely go to use his garage again. Thanks Patrick
Excellent service couldn't be happier
Payed £35 for diagnostics, said 100% it was the throttle pedal, ordered one in had it fitted for a further £90 including parts and labour car drives perfectly. Very friendly and knowledgeable will definitely be my local garage of choice from now on.
VERY quick response, could do exactly what I wanted
Car collected and delivered on time. Overall bill was lower than quoted. Hard to find such reliable and honest professionals in this age and date. The owner left the car even when the bill could not be settled; this demonstrates that they are in this business for service and satisfaction and not just money.
Great little garage hid away, did service on time as I required very friendly only thing I was disappointed with I did not get a copy of what they actually did or checked
Overall good experience, value for money however the fault not pin pointed but a few causes dismissed. Thank you.
Would recommend Parkside Garage to anyone! Quick and easy to fit in my service, with quick replies! I got my car in a service and was done within around an hour! I didn't not have my service book and left it at home, so they provided me with their own service book until i got it. I noticed after i back from the service that they had put an incorrect common meaning my millage was more than it was, with a quick call they reprinted everything off and i came back in the next morning, with my actual service book as well which they happily filled out! Will be back in future! Great, friendly people!
No complaints at all. They serviced the car and I collected the same day.
I absolutely recommend this garage very friendly and honest!!!
This is the first time I have used this garage, and will be using them again! It is fantastic to find a local trustworthy mechanic. He serviced my son’s car for me and replaced his boot lid for me at the same time. I really would recommend this garage, as you do not feel you have been over charged. Excellent work, service and support.

An interim service is carried out on a car by a mechanic, who checks a number of key components and parts of a car.
An interim service can be extremely helpful for finding minor problems before they develop into major ones as many parts of a car will naturally wear down over time. The ones at high risk will usually be checked during an interim service.
For a driver, having an interim service carried out is a smart move as you may not realise there is a problem developing and it could end up costing you even more money down the line.
It is also recommended that you should get an interim service every 6,000 miles.
What would you prefer, to replace a pressure gauge or have your car written off entirely due to the head gasket blowing!
The difference between a full service and an interim service is the amount of parts checked. As the name suggests, an interim service will be less thorough than a full service.
However, that does not mean that a lot is checked during an interim service!
In the next section, we will list what is checked during an interim service.
If you would like to know what is included in a full service, click here to see a dedicated page.
Engine oil is absolutely vital for keeping your car is good health and serious damage will be cause to a vehicle if there is low or none existent engine oil.
This is one of the easiest things to check and will always be included in an interim service.
Brake fluid is vital for the brake system as it is responsible for applying pressure to the pads and discs when bringing a car to a halt. If there is a small leak in the braking system, the liquid will inevitably pour out. This will then prevent you from braking all together so it is vital that this never happens!
During the winter months, if a car is left outside for an extended period of time, it will be subject to potential problems. Coolant is a liquid which runs through a car engine, keeping the level of heat and friction down, similar to engine oil.
The radiator needs to have a healthy supply of coolant to operate and keep the engine cool, which is why it is vital there is also enough anti-freeze in the system as well. If the coolant freezes and you start your engine in cold weather, your engine could overheat and damage could be caused extremely quickly.
Having enough windscreen wash may not strike you as critical, however, if you are driving your car and your view of the road becomes obstructed, you need to be able to wash your screen.
Like brake fluid, power steering fluid is checked in an interim service and the reason are exactly the same. Power steering fluid is critical for being able to steer a car and if there is a leak, or even air bubbles in the system, you will be in trouble.
If the problem is air bubbles, you can pump the clutch to resolve the issue, however, if there is a leak, a bigger repair will be required.
It is a legal requirement that you have working headlights so the wiring around rear and headlights will be checked during an interim service to ensure they are not at risk of cutting out.
Windscreen wipers naturally wear down over time and lose their ability to remove dirt and water from a windscreen. A mechanic will make sure your windscreen wipers are good enough to do this during an interim service.
The most common problem car batteries have is dying however, with a jump start, this problem can be sorted. A mechanic has no way of knowing if this will happen and so they cannot check for anything specific when it comes to this potential issue arising.
However, the integrity of a car battery could come into question and they can sometimes crack, resulting in battery acid spilling into the car engine. This is a very serious issue and so the battery will be checked for signs of damage during an interim service to ensure this does not happen to you.
The charging system is responsible for keeping your car battery full of power, if it is compromised, then it highly likely that you will suffer from a regular dead battery.
The alternator can be to blame for problems with the charging system and so will be checked during an interim service.
The most common issue the exhaust system suffers from is rust and leakage of dangerous fumes. There are several parts of an exhaust system which will be checked in an interim service including the catalytic converter which is responsible for taking the most toxic and dangerous elements out of the fumes created by a car engine.
A mechanic will mainly be checking for holes and rust when it comes to the exhaust system.
It is a legal requirement to have 1.6mm tyre tread depth in the UK as this allows a car to grip the road firmly, if it is any lower, you are actually breaking the law!
This will always be checked while an interim service is being carried out, as will a pressure check on your tyres.
A brake test will be carried out during an interim service to ensure your car is able to come to a stop properly. If your car cannot do this, there is a good chance the brake pads or discs have worn down.
Surprisingly, some drivers don’t realise that their steering isn’t what it is supposed to be which is why this service is provided in an interim service.
There may be a number of issues which would cause steering issues including wheel alignment, in which case, a simple fix is available.
The shock absorbers make up a part of the steering and suspension system and are self explanatory in their role in a car.
However, their effectiveness will drop over time resulting in a less comfortable ride for passengers. The large springs will be checked during a full service for degradation.
The suspension of a car is part of the steering system and so will be rigorously checked during an interim service.
As mentioned at the top of the text, an interim service can help identify problems before they arise as mechanics are trained to be able to recognise the signs of a part having issues at an early stage.
This means you will be able to avoid a serious and potentially dangerous situations developing in the future.
The cost of an interim service will vary depending on the garage and the car itself. At the top of the page you will be able to see what the average cost of an interim service is in the UK, however, you can get free and personalised quotes for an interim service using WhoCanFixMyCar.
