Our reviews

Takes a lot of stress away

I would definitely recommend this company: knowing someone was keeping an eye on everything to make sure I wasn't being overcharged for parts and labour takes a lot of stress out of having the work done. I felt really well looked after. Thank you Fixter.

Kathleen Hodge, West Yorkshire

Excellent service

Excellent service. On time to pick up my car & drop it back. Full service cost £179, main dealer quoted me £700-lots different!

Muhammad, Birmingham

Total game-changer!

Just had my MOT done through Fixter for the first time. It took about 5 minutes of my time in total to book, hand over the key, and get it back when the car was returned. So I was able to carry on looking after my 2 year old. Total game-changer!

Oliver Woodford, London

No need to drive to a garage

Can't get more convenient than someone turning up, taking the car from the house for its MOT and returning it a few hours later. No having to drive to a garage (often miles from anywhere or in the middle of an industrial estate) or hanging around waiting.

Darren, Pontefract

I literally cannot fault them

This is the 3rd time I have used Fixter and I recommend to everyone. It makes getting an MOT super easy for me. Everyone I speak to on the phone is incredibly helpful and polite, and they seem to be the most cost effective. I literally cannot fault them.

Our expert insights into radiator replacement

What does a car radiator do?

The radiator is a component in the engine that keeps the car's engine coolant cool. Without the radiator, a car would quickly run into trouble and serious problems could arise. The radiator is part of the cooling system ensuring the car does not overheat.

What are the symptoms of a malfunctioning car radiator?

Below are the top 3 symptoms that could indicate you need to replace your car radiator:

  1. If the 'Check Engine' warning light is on.

  2. There are leaks on the radiator (or even around it).

  3. Your engine is overheating, which means it’s running at a higher temperature than usual.

What happens when we carry out a radiator replacement on your car?

Our certified mechanics will:

  1. Inspect the radiator and the parts around it for any potential leak.

  2. Perform a pressure test on the cooling system.

  3. Replace the radiator (if necessary) and advise you if any other parts need to be replaced as well

This being said, a damaged or leaking car radiator should be replaced immediately.
