I have now been using this garage for several years. I always have my annual MOT and servicing carried out by them, as I do with repairs. I can see no reason to consider changing, they always fairly priced and obliging. Last used 1st Sept 2014.

I have been taking my motorhome here for 2 years now and it has never run better. They do LowEmissionZone conversion checks and maintenance as well as service & MOT quickly and efficiently with the minimum of hassle at a fair price. Staff are all pleasant, friendly and easy to deal with.

My back light had a problem and 2 garages just replaced the light bulb, which lasted a day. Stephen identified earth needed resoldering, checked the overall state of the engine. Spent time teaching me how to do the oil check myself. Very helpful, thorough, pleasant, calm manner. Cheap.

Very competitive prices and honest. The only grumble is that for at least the last six months they have only been taking cash payments. As I'm VAT registered, I took my car somewhere else for it's service.

Being new to the area I was a little unsure where to get an MOT and service for my car. After reading the reviews on Which? Local I decided to make trader part of my shortlist. When visiting the workshop I found the team to be friendly and the garage nice and clean, as a result I decided to try them out. I was very happy with the service and have comfort in knowing my car is in good hands. trader is now my local garage for all my motoring needs.

Just used this garage for the second time - the first time for a repair and this time for annual service. Work appears to be of a high standard, fully explained and you definitely get the feeling that you are not being misled, taken for a ride etc.

My car would not start when I was visiting friends in Ilford.They recommended Ray Swinchatt of trader who immediately came out and got my car started.I then asked him to carry out other non urgent repairs which he did to my entire satisfaction at a far more reasonable cost than I would have paid at home.He was extremely courteous and efficient and I could not recommend him more highly.

DrivingForce had my car MOT'd and available to me in half a day for only £40. I will certainly consider them in the future.
