We had our motorhome serviced and MOT today at SLP Autos. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. I felt they really took care of the motorhome and understood how important it is to us! They even helped us with getting the battery out from underneath a seat, which certainly isn't part of a regular service! Highly recommend and will be back next year.

Excellent family run garage, done a fantastic job replacing my air conditioning condenser and receiver dryer, albeit they initially fitted a factory supplied incorrect seal which swiftly failed and without hesitation corrected the issue at no extra charge. If you have any major car air con issue - this is the firm to take your car to, special praise to Ian: top bloke/mechanic.Update 2022: still as excellent as ever very professional and friendly staff, they're honest and reliable which is very rare in the motoring trade. Highly recommended.
Great experienced team here. Have done my MOT's for years and any other remedial repairs.Always friendly, fast and honest.
