Very happy with the work. Would highly recommend
Very happy with the service ,they came for my car and dropped back off,very pleasant,I booked online for a service and was quoted £99 ,but they where very honest and said it’s only £69 as it’s my cars first service,will definitely get 2nd service done from them ,, thank you
They've done a first class job on the car!
Everything was good
Car booked in for front and rear discs/pads, very reasonable cost and all sorted fairly quickly aswell! Would definitely recommend this garage - good service, quick and a competitive price for all work undertaken. Thanks
Patrick is honest, transparent and reliable. I had a knocking noise from the front ns wheel, so while I was having this investigated I had the Cam belt and water pump changed as it was due. The cam belt was changed very quickly, but we had to wait for the parts for a suspected worn drive shaft. Whilst waiting for the part, Patrick went through all other alternative reasons for the knocking noise. Although it did indeed end up being a worn driveshaft, it was refreshing that Patrick troubleshooted all other avenues in case it was a more simple fix, at no extra cost. In regards to costs, Patrick is more than competitive. Having been quoted £480 for Cam belt only and £533 for a new ns driveshaft, £641 all in is phenomenal. The collection and delivery service is unmatched by any other garage I have ever visited. I would not hesitate to recommended Patrick, and will be using him in future for any requirements my car has. Honestly, you will not be disappointed with Patrick.
Great service, very quick, bit pricey. (but worth it for the convenience)
Friendly, did job on time and cheaper than competitor's.
Very professional and accommodating, would definitely use them again
Excellent service. Booked me in quickly and job was done right away. No hassle and a really friendly service. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent service and job done quickly ! A++
Great garage. I knew my car needed work so booked it in for a spring replacement after a dodgy pot hole broke it. My usual garage was full so I found this garage using this website.. ten times better than my usual garage! They found a few other jobs that needed doing and repaired at a very good price and checked everything over with me. They found jobs my garage had advised did not need doing which could have wrecked my car in the long run! Great staff who know what they're doing and fix the problems at a great price and are very fair.. have had 3 other jobs fixed by them afterwards and will use them always in the future. Thanks
Found the fault and fix the problem in less than 30 mins when other garages havent had a clue what the problem was. Many thanks. Highly recommended.

A head gasket is effectively a seal which is essential for maintaining the temperature and integrity of a car engine. It's a part responsible for sealing pressure within the engine as well as the distribution of oil and coolant.
Every time you turn on your engine the head gasket has to operate within very high temperatures and pressures, which is exactly what it is designed to do. The engine of your car needs to be cooled constantly as it relies on combustion for power and the head gasket is the core component in performing this job.
If the head gasket is damaged, the engine will quickly overheat and serious damage will be caused. Overheating in the engine of your car will lead to a loss of compression, the mixing of oil, water, coolant as well as a reduction in lubrication.
The head gasket is a very complex piece of equipment and so a variety of materials are needed to build it. It has to be able to withstand and function normally at extreme temperatures and pressure, it also needs to be resistant to all of the chemicals and oils which rush around your car engine.
As a result, each gasket from one car to the next is different as the demands of each engine are unique. Car manufacturers like Ford, Vauxhall and BMW spend millions of pounds every year in the research and development of head gaskets to help manage the pressure and cooling of engines.
Unfortunately, if you need a head gasket repairing, it will be on the more expensive side. However, if you follow the advice below you can learn how to recognise problems with your gasket before something serious happens.
There are other signs to look out for but unless you are a trained mechanic it will be difficult to spot them which is why it is so important that you have your car checked if you suspect there is an issue.
As mentioned above, if a head gasket blows, it can be a costly repair for you as a huge increase in temperature throughout the engine could very easily cause a range of other issues.
If you need a head gasket repair or if you think you might have an issue with the unit, it is vital that you pay attention to the issue, if you ignore the signs above and the gasket blows while you are driving this could cause serious threat to your safety.
A blown head gasket repair can be quite costly for any driver, no matter what car you drive. There is no easy head gasket fix and so you will need to get an experienced mechanic to take a look. The scale does vary for a head gasket repair when looking at different card brands. For a Mercedes, pricing is over £700 on average whereas for a Fiat the price is around £355 on average.
