Very competitive pricing and very helpful - on a couple of occasions have assisted with very minor problems without charge. Minor criticism but perhaps could keep customer up to date with developments a little better

Car had a broken front offside spring coil, probably caused by all the local potholes. Had the the car towed into the garage, they advised would not be able to work on it for at least four to five days. though no problem for me. Very delighted when I received a call the next day saying that they had replaced the coil. Excellent service and cost was very reasonable.

I had a fuel problem with my Rav 4 diesel which was beyond the ability of my local garage. I took it in to trader and they found the problem and fixed it within 2 days. Steve and Ben know their stuff where diesel systems are concerned and their bill was a little below what I expected. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

We purchased a VW camper from this company 2 years ago. This is a Brazilian made van that was 3 years old. Because we were to use it in the UK we were keen on a right hand drive conversion. trader were happy to oblige and used an external supplier for the parts. To be honest we were entirely happy with it. Recently more than 2 years after purchasing the vehicle we took it back for servicing. I was surprised when the owner Paul Mullinger phoned me and said "have you any problems with the steering" I honestly replied to the negative but he insisted that the steering was defective and should be replaced. When a garage says something like this you tend to steel yourself for the bad news on costs but I was told that "no vehicle is leaving our workshop with defective steering even after 2 years and it was being replaced FREE OF CHARGE!" This was duly done and I have looked underneath and all the steering components have been changed! I must say I am hugely impressed. There is no doubt the steering is better even though we hadn't really noticed a problem before.This garage is a back street outfit and has provided service that puts most glossy mainstream garages to shame! There are many major manufacturers who don't have this quality of service and Which has reported on several of them. I whole heartedly recommend this company. They honestly deserve to succeed. In the middle of a recession they are able to make the big boys hang their heads in shame with their honest approach. Well done trader !!

Excellent garage, this is only the second time I have used them but they are great value, and honest. I asked them to give the car an MoT without asking them to quote for the work that would be needed. They did not make up a list of minor but expensive repairs which I am accustom to, so I will certainly be using them in future.

I would just like to add after another two years on and I am still using this garage for servicing and repairs (exhaust sensor replacement and brake discs and pads over a year ago and a rear exhaust silencer this year) and I have nothing but praise for them, they have squeezed in a fast repair just before I left for a holiday by overnighting a parts delivery and fitting it the day I was leaving, first class service.

These people have always done excellent work on my Peugeot, sometimes going the extra mile to complete the work in time for collection of my car on same day when an unforseen problem arose, which wasn't often as regular maintenance was done 100% properly by their team. They never recommend unnecessary work, & all charges are plainly set out. I don't take the car anywhere else. They can attend to any make of vehicle.

Tony and Gordon are specialists in older or classic cars. It's difficult to find and they don't work fast. You have to take your turn on their waiting list. However they are experts in what they do and have got my old Lotus Elan (Lots Of Trouble Usually Serious!) back on the road. Would have been full marks but they let me head off with about half a pint of petrol in the tank, so that it kept (unbelievably to me) stalling and finally conked out for the RAC man to rescue.

Keith was recommended to me by a car enthusiast. He came and took my SORN historic vehicle to my new address. He was an hour plus late, due to some snag occuring, but he kept me informed. He was very efficient and cheerful when he arrived, and the job was done quickly

Easy to book a service and MOT; turned out to be very expensive (which wasn't unexpected) and was given some good advice. I had to keep ringing to find out the progress on the car, but eventually "the wrong parts were delivered" and I had to pick the car up the following day. When the car was returned it had a new fault. The garage did repair this free, but yet another day was taken!
