IN A NUTSHELL

about us

Our workshops are fully equipped for rigorous MOT testing, together with electronic diagnostics to get to the root of any problem quickly and confidently.

Our mechanics are qualified to work on any make of car, but more importantly, they have the practical experience to know just what needs doing, and when. So we won’t carry out work that isn’t required and agreed with you in advance and we won’t replace parts unnecessarily.

But we will make sure that you are back on the road with the minimum of delay and inconvenience. We will do everything we can to help you keep your costs down, without compromising on quality or safety.

We are proud to be members of the Good Garage Scheme which promotes a strict Code of Conduct and is dedicated to driving up standards in the car servicing industry.
