Vehicle service.

Great customer service, friendly and helpful staff, great value for money and a courtesy car. Car was even washed before returning, would definitely recommend.

We turned up with no appointment with a dead headlamp bulb in our VW transporter. The friendly staff at Advanced Vehicle Workshop replaced bulb with a smile, free of charge! (Just £2.20 for bulb).

This workshop cares about what it does
Customer Service
I have had more than a fair amount of problems with the electrics on my motorhome. Tim has quickly identified the problems and carried out repairs with materials to hand rather than buy a spare at great cost to me. I cannot speak too highly of this garage.

Customer Service
Initially very helpful but this garage has now had my car for nearly 6 months. When I call, excuses range from that the person working on the car is ill, to that they have been too busy. Now they have started ignoring my emails and hanging up when I call. If you value your time please avoid, disgraceful service
The trader replied (on 13/04/2017)
We would like to take this opportunity to apologise for the length of time we have had your car with us here at AVW and for what seems like a breakdown in communications. We understand that our loan car is no substitute for your own but hope that you appreciate the service we provide free of charge to keep you on the road whilst this situation persists. Having initially carried out diagnostic work to determine the issue we decided that the best option was to exchange the engine with VW. We advised you that although your vehicle was under warranty it was unlikely that they would pay for the new unit given the incomplete nature of your service record. However we continued with the work under your instruction. Thus, before the warranty company would entertain the idea of providing a new unit we needed to strip down the engine for further examination at a cost to yourself, of which an outstanding balance remains. Therefore without confirmation from the warranty company and no definitive means of payment, the considerable amount of work remaining was put on hold. We hope you understand our dilemma and moving forward we can reach a solution as quickly as possible. Regards, Tim.

Professional, quality work, honest, friendly.
Second time I've taken my car to avw and it won't be the last. Excellent customer service, friendly staff, top quality workmanship & always prepared to go the extra mile. In a nutshell, best garage.
