All of our servicing is completed by trained and experienced mechanics who pride themselves on offering an impeccable standard of workmanship on every job, no matter how large or small it may be. Our commitment to quality has ensured that we have been recommended many times by past customers, as well as visited by regular clients.

Under current EU legislation, you can have your car service carried out at any garage no matter the age and it will not affect its warranty position. Therefore, we can service any make and model of vehicle whether it be old or new. We prefer to use genuine parts on vehicles up to 3 years old however, original equipment equivalent parts are widely available and are usually slightly cheaper and as good a quality, though this is always the customer’s choice.


The timing belt is the most important and overlooked part of regular vehicle maintenance. Yet most car owners don't understand the importance or need for timing belt maintenance if the engine is running fine. As a result, the timing belt is one of the most common reasons for vehicle failure.

About Your MOT Test

From April 2014, the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) are responsible for regulating the MOT programme, which ensures that all vehicles over three years old meet minimum road safety and environmental standards.

The following key points should be noted:

  • All UK registered cars three years old or more require a valid MOT certificate by law;
  • Vehicles may be submitted for a new test up to 28 days before the test is due;
  • The process takes approximately just 1 hour to complete;
  • If your vehicle fails, you will be notified of all necessary repairs, together with the cost to correct them;
  • Road Tax cannot be renewed without a current MOT.
