Phoned to book a waiting MOT appointment for my motorcycle and was pleased to be told that the work could be done later that day. The test commenced within a couple of minutes of my arrival and was completed within approximately half an hour. All went well with the test apart from an incorrectly aligned headlamp which was adjusted free of charge. I was also given the opportunity to speak to the tester after completion of the test and asked him to appraise the condition of the bike's drive chain and sprocket. Rather than just give the chain a cursory glance, he took the trouble to put the bike on its centre stand and conducted a thorough inspection. He concluded that the components still had plenty of life in them, putting my mind at rest. Overall, I was very impressed with the friendly and professional service I received and would not hesitate to recommend this trader

Just had my MOT done after getting text reminder, very useful. After moving to the area 2 years ago needed to find a new garage. So glad we found 1st Stop. We take 3 cars here for MOT /Service/ mechanical problems. Always polite, helpful, knowledgeable and keep you informed . Helped my daughter with her first car and the numerous worries that came with it. Talked to her in a way she could relate to and not patronising. They always check before starting on any work and estimates given are normally spot on. Would recommend to anyone who wants to be treated with respect and honesty.

I took my motorhome for an mot and service, this was carried out and a fault was found with the brake pistons. I was phoned and was given a price, which I agreed and the work was then carried out. A good and honest service

Annual MOT and service today carried out with the usual courtesy and efficiency. I, and my family have been using First Stop for some years now. It is wonderful to have such a good garage nearby. On many occasions I have had to phone up about an unusual noise or something else not quite right with the car. They have always managed to look at the car that day and very often fix it straight away. First class service, thank you 1st Stop.
