Excellent service all round. We were recommended by the previous owner who had used them for over ten years to service our car. They carried out an MOT, service and cam belt change. All the work was carried out very promptly and at a good price. I have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Excellent service. Realised my car's MOT was due to run out soon. I called them and they could fit me in the same day. Car ready for collection upon my return! Thank you very much.
