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
Top bloke would highly recommend.
Some confusion with job registration. Had to remind about booked appointment. But actual job was done promptly. Pleased with service
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.
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
Upon inspection it was fond the internal knuckle was also damaged and they were quick to source a used part and replace with only cost for part. I find this garage to be genuine and explain the issue up front with photo evidence of damage and repair. Will use again.
This company has completely restored my faith in mechanics absolutely. They did exactly what they said they were going to do and communication was full marks from start to finish. I have no hesitation in recommending them at all times. I’m very grateful they are around.
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
Drew was really polite and the guys did a great and a efficient job on changing my brakes and discs... They provided me and my dog a warm place to sit and wait for the car and gave me advise on how to drive it until the brakes broke in! Highly recommended
Great service, quick turn over and fantastic price!
Very good service quick and no issues
I’ve been using this garage at current and previous location for years. Always helpful and good value for money. Taken both our cars here this week and got the usual great service.
Always offer competitive price and good service. Got charged for service and first mot as agreed. No extras added, like you usually get advised elsewhere. Definitely recommend.
Third time there. Good as always.
Job completed in time advised, offered to check and top up coolant foc after a week

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.
