Customer Reviews

A very professional and friendly garage. A high standard of work at a fraction of the price of main dealers. Been using this garage for circa 10 years now and I will continue to do so with all my high performance cars. Very trustworthy mechanics and always happy to help.

Auto Maintenance FAQs

How often should I get my oil changed?
As a general rule, you should change your engine oil every 3,000-5,000 miles or approximately every six months. Depending on your car's age, oil type and driving conditions, you may be able to change the oil every 7,500-10,000 miles.
How often do I need to MOT my vehicle?
The MOT test checks that your vehicle meets road safety and environmental standards. You must get an MOT for your vehicle by either the third anniversary of its registration or by the anniversary of its last MOT if it's over 3 years old. You can be fined up to £1,000 for driving a vehicle without a valid MOT.
When should my tyres be replaced and not repaired?
In certain situations it may be advisable to fit a new tyre as opposed to repairing the current one. For example, if the tread depth is illegal (less than 1.6mm across the central 75% of the tyre), if there is evidence of deterioration or damage (like exposed cords or bead damage) or if a poor quality repair has been carried out on the tyre previously. Tyres will always be thoroughly checked before a repair is carried out.
How long should wiper blades last?
Wiper blades are designed to last between six months and a year, depending on a number of factors such as usage, environment, and the quality of the blades themselves. As soon as you notice a decline in visibility, wiper blades should be changed.
