Your Local Garage Services
We are a DVSA Approved MOT Test Centre offering MOT tests for
- Light commercial vehicles
We recommend booking your MOT test in advance as we are usually busy and an average MOT test takes around 45 minutes to complete. Customers are welcome to relax in our reception area while they wait.
We offer a choice of service options to suit your requirements, including health checks and manufacturer recommended interim, annual and full services.
Not sure what service you need? – Our customer service team will be able to advise you by using our Autodata system which provides guidelines for the service intervals on all makes, models. Why not give us a call, so we can advise you what kind of service you need?
Are you having problems with your car? – Do you have warning lights showing on the dashboard or has the engine gone into ‘safe mode’ restricting power? – Why not let us take a look?
With skilled auto technicians and Bosch diagnostic tools on hand we can diagnose all types of mechanical and electrical faults, warnings and error codes on most makes and models of cars and light commercial vehicles.
Our skilled auto technicians are here to help with repairs or to fit genuine, high quality after-market replacement parts including brakes, exhaust and clutch systems, engine components for most makes and models of cars, motorcycles and light commercial vehicles. Our parts and services are guaranteed through the Bosch Service Centre network. Customers typically find our replacement parts, fitting and repairs more affordable than local main dealerships.
We offer tyre replacement and repair services with a choice of tyres from leading manufacturers including Michelin, Pirelli, Continental, Good Year, Bridgestone and Dunlop for most makes and models. We can also offer wheel balancing and four wheel alignment to minimise tyre wear and improve safety and performance. Customers are advised to book in advance where possible – just so we can make sure your tyres are in stock.
Is the steering on your car pulling to one side, or the steering wheel crooked whilst driving straight? Are your tyres wearing unevenly? – These are common symptoms that your wheel alignment is out. It may be that you’ve hit a pot hole in the road, or just regular bumps in the road have knocked the alignment out. We have the latest four wheel alignment equipment to realign your wheels, ensuring your vehicle both handles safely and is more economical on fuel and tyres.
