I was driving home past this garage yesterday as for over a week now my windscreen wiper was broken. I saw the shutters were down, but the light was on inside so tried my luck, and swerved inside to see the owner. I asked him how much it would cost to fix, and offered to come back another day when they were open but he took a quick look at it and said he could fix it there and then. He did it in less than 2 minutes, and when I asked how much it would cost he said it was on the house! The manager is an absolute gem, great customer service and even when they are closed he manages to outdo himself! Have used him earlier this year and his charges are reasonable and the service first class.

My car is knocking on 10 years now (time for an upgrade me thinks!) and unfortunately I am one of the biggest procrastinators in maintaining her upkeep. I was about to learn a tough lesson last week when on one of my drives home from work my car gave up on me. Not too far from my home, I parked her up and walked the rest of the way and turned to Which? Local to find a trusty garage who could fix her up. I called trader on the friday afternoon and they were pleasant and helpful on the phone and said it was fine to bring her in the next day when they opened at 9am. I took my car in, rattling and banging and chugging along at around 10am and two men came to see me instantly. I was given a very prompt quote (the damage was obvious so no diagnosis was really needed) which was around £67 for the parts and they were kind enough to only charge me for 30mins worth of labour, and including VAT the job was £132 which I thought was really reasonable. Being a woman I hate going to garages alone as I fear they will always swindle me, but I felt their charges were fair considering I had called peugeot and got quotes of parts for £101+ not including VAT! The manager was friendly and personable, and even spent some time talking to my sister giving her explanations of car parts and features as she is currently studying for her theory test. Less than 2 hours later I received a text that my car was ready, which was perfect as on a saturday I always have loads of things to do. In the 3 years I have had this car she has never sounded so perfect as they put in a new rear silencer, exhaust pipe and some other part I don't even know lol. They even fixed a really stiff left rear door that has been a pain for the last 6 months or so! Of all the garages I have gone to over the year I thought the service here was first class, the mechanics were friendly and the price was similar to what I have paid for in the past for jobs nowhere near this standard. The mechanics were honest, and not one where they say more things are wrong with your car for repeat business. I'd recommend this garage to anyone in a heartbeat!

Take great care of your car and you.As well as excellent customer facing skills.  I particularly value their engineering skills in repairing components rather than obliging me to order expensive replacements.

I used this place recently for a service to my Mondeo and found them very good, well priced and efficient. I will be using them again definitely.

My car was hit whilst parked outside my house, my insurer sent me to trader to repair the car, anxious at first but impressed with the result. Rear bumper was replaced Rear passenger door scratches and dents removed Rear mudguard replaced All done within 5 working days, phoned me the minute it was complete, even valeted the car. Good location too, right by behind Tooting Broiadway so getting there via public transport was easy. Might not look flashy when you drive in but can't fault their work, toying with the idea of taking my car there for its MOT / service.

Excellent local garage. Carlton is able to service and repair most brands of car in Clapham area of London - esp handy if you live in the CR parking permit area. I have always trusted him and have used his garage for years. I'm sure he's also cheaper than big fancy dealer style garages. he has an interesting sideline in photography.

I found Mr Manolo through Which Local. He is every bit as good as the reviews say. The first time I went to him was at the end of last year for some welding on an old Mercedes for the MOT. The work was done with minimum fuss and for a quarter of the assessment of the garage who found the rust and the first repair shop I went to for an estimate. The second was this month for some body work and new brakes. Again, the work was done with the minimum of fuss and cost. Yes, the shop is small, packed with cars, and space inside and out in the street is limited. And I've found I have to go along in person to book the work, since the phone never seems to get answered - perhaps because they're too busy working.

Specialise mainly in Citroen & Peugot cars and I started to use them in 1997 after I had been quoted for a new clutch by my previous garage who had towed me home when all that was needed was a new linkage part. The proprietor works and is knowledgable and his team are always working. They forewarn you of possible problems. I stopped using them when I purchased a new Piccasso but was never really happy with the main dealer I was using and who quoted for work which was unneccessary so I returned to them. No garages are cheap but I have found them very fair and have confidence in them.

Alton Motors is not only honest in their dealings, but do not do unnecessary work. They are great mechanics and personable. They know what they are doing and get on with it. They are certainly not lacking for business. I've been using them for many years and recommend them to everyone. I've beenhappy with all their work, mechanically as well as body work. Excellent firm.
