Absolutely Gem 💎 of a garage. I've recently relocated and have been in need of a new garage that I can trust, I have to say I have found it!! I was totally ripped off by another garage which was a Bosh Service Centre sadly. I thought I was in good hands, clearly not the case. They went through and basically done a very expensive service including changing sparks and the cheeky thing was I was charged for a diagnostics when I told them my engine management wasn't on. I got the car back and was told I need to change my timing belt tensioner etc staring at £1500+vat. I was told the car is safe to drive otherwise they wouldn't have given the car back to me. To my disappointment the car was in the same condition and I was scared to drive it. The fuel gauge was flashing, I thought I wouldn't make it to the nearest fuel station. So you can see how please I was when Richard phoned me and told me that there was a oil pressure problem which he fixed. He could have added a few extras like some garages do, but Honest Richard thankfully didn't. He fixed my car at a fraction of the price that I was quoted clearly for the wrong job Richard and his team has my trust as I've booked my daughter's car for a routine service and investigate front suspension. Special thank you to the lovely ladies Jane and Sarah for looking after me and managing to accommodate me during there busy schedule. Would definitely recommend Richard.
Been going here for 10 years and Richard and the team have never let us down. Very busy as popular but always gets the job done at decent rates.
After breaking down in an area we are not familiar with we fell upon this gem by chance ..such an amazing kind and welcoming place .. a new car battery was ordered & delivered to the shop within 45 mins and the staff were kind enough to lend us their tools to replace the battery, albeit at a different location . .we were offered tea & respite . Even teddy the dog was made welcome .. muddy paws 🐾 aswell ..
Really nice people and very helpful fixed my daughters oil leak and didn’t overcharge - they also squeezed us in on the same day which is amazing - great service and will use again 😊
Lovely garage, the customer service is amazing 🤩 I have my Mercedes done with this garage recently. Thank you
