Just moved into the area and used Hayes,following Which Local recommendations, for my MOT and service. They were first class; professional, efficient, gave me a breakdown of costs and took the time to thoroughly explain the MOT results. Will be using them again.

At last a truly honest garage. Not only are they really competitive but also honest. I asked them to repair my rear exhaust but they told me that a replacement wasn't necessary and that it just needed a new bracket. The service they did at the same time was 1st class and thorough. (I know because I left a few secret marks to make sure it was done correctly). They even collect vehicles within a 12 mile radius or if preferred give you a lift home FOC and collect you again when the car is finished. Truly 10/10 and no I am not related to them in anyway. It is so rare to receive such great service I felt it only fair to spread the word.

We use this garage for both our cars, a Honda and a Ford (mentioned because they are known as BMW Specialists), and have been absolutely delighted at the quality of the work and the very competitive pricing, coupled with their very friendly and helpful approach to customers - we have no hesitation in recommending them.

Had difficulty in finding the right battery using Halfords and the like - one telephone call after lunchtime located the correct battery type and it was supplied and fitted to the car on my drive by 4pm - battery supplied at reasonable cost and delivered/fitted free of charge

As a female ignorant about things mechanical it would not be difficult to be 'taken for a ride' when getting my car serviced. Deals are totally trustworthy, always courteous and I've received excellent service from them over a number of years.

An honest and genuine family business. Friendly and helpful and never any pressure to do any more than is required to get you back safely motoring. Any problem small or large can be solved and very small ones usually without charge.

We first used this garage in 2011 to have our Toyota Aygo serviced. Had used the local Toyota agent until then as it was under warrenty, but not impressed with their customer service. This garage has been in business since 1966 (must be doing something right!) so we thought we would give them a try. Customer service was first class, from when we took the car in, to when it was delivered back to us. All work done to a high standard (I am an ex motor technician) and nicely cleaned. Our Aygo was also serviced by them in August 2012 with the same result. Since then the garage has also serviced our Mercedes C Class in September 2012, and had the front brake discs and pads replaced in January this year. At all times the staff are very helpful and knowledgable and nothing is too much trouble. No hesitation in recommending this business.

This trader was recommended to us some years ago. We have used ever since. They do an excellent job every time, go out of their way to help and are their pricing is very reasonable. Would recommend to anyone!

Used trader for both a major car service, and subsequently for an MoT. Shaikly gave me a fair estimate of the work which was mandatory (and the costs), and the work which could wait for another few months. Work appears to have been done to a high standard. Staff have a professional approach. Will use them again for future services and MoTs.
