Great job!
Customer Service
I had my MOT and brake pads fitted by Kevin from 1st Stop Tyres. My car passed its MOT but I was called about some advisories, we discussed most important issues and decided what course of action to take. I was very happy with the work and customer service I received; everything was completed on time to budget. I would highly recommend.

Excellent Customer Service!
Customer Service
We have used 1st Stop Cars Ltd for over 20 years and know they will always do a good job and inform us of any problem before just doing things. They always go out of their way help. Our MOT Service was due but my wife had broken her hip and couldn’t drive for several weeks. I also just came out of hospital too and was too ill to drive. Kevin from 1st Stop Cars sent a member of his team to come and collect our car. The customer service is just excellent and I would recommend them to anyone!

Ten out of ten for 1st stop
Customer Service
I have my MOTS, Services and various other works that needs to be done as and when by 1st Stop Cars. The work is always excellent; they always tell me the extent and price before they do anything. They are very helpful, understanding and cheerful. I have been with 1st Stop for many years and they have always completed any work efficiently and on time. They have also fitted me in a couple of times when I have broken down. Everything is explained in a way I can understand. I would highly recommend them!

Customer Service
I and many of my colleagues have been using this garage for 10 or more years for car repairs, servicing and MOT's. The service has always been excellent and they have an honesty policy which works. They only do work which is necessary, explain what they're doing, give an estimate & if unforeseen work arises, always check with you before proceeding.
