I used Clacton Tyre & Exhaust Centre to fit a tyre bought through Blackcircles.com. They were friendly, thorough and efficient. The waiting room even had a very clean customer toilet attached.

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.

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

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!

I have been using this mobile car mechanic for 20 years. He is unbelievable, he is such a nice human being, he is very cheap and very thorough which is an unusual combination! I recently had a full service and called him back as a brake light kept going out. No charge! I cannot recommend this man highly enough. There is a catch though, you can only phone him 6-7pm Mon to Fri on his landline. **** He now has a mobile phone number. He used to live in Woodford Green but has recently moved to Clacton on Sea. However, as all his customers are in this area - he still commutes!

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.
