Good morning and thank you for your kind words. Take care
Excellent service
Customer Service
I can't recommend these guys enough. After a horrendous experience a year ago with an AA approved/partnered garage, I was watching reviews closely to find a reliable local service. DJ's certainly lived up to their reputation. My car went in for its MOT and yr 5 services today and was ready in a few hours with everything done. Last year I was told my car was undrivable unless I paid over £1K of charges (later disproved by an independent assessor). This year I got a very efficient and professional service and nobody tried to take the car hostage. The service was easy, friendly and professional and at a very fair price. I would recommend these guys to everyone, especially female motorists who have experienced poor or judgemental service in the past.

Hello, on behalf of Chris and the team, I would like to thank you for taking the time to put together such wonderful feedback. It is always a good feeling when we hear we have gained the trust of a customer and we hope to be of service to you again in the future. With very best wishes Pippa
Excellent service all round!
Customer Service
Very pleased to have found D J Garage Services following a recommendation from a neighbour. When booking my car in for a Full Service, MOT and Air Con Check, it was good to be able to discuss the service requirements with someone so knowledgeable. The collection/return service from my home address worked extremely well and a progress call was made by the garage during the day. All work was carried out within the estimated cost and advice given on work that may be needed in the future. Many thanks to the whole team for an excellent, friendly, efficient and informative service!

Extremely Helpful garage
Customer Service
I have been using this garage for a few years now and have found them to be extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. They have gone the extra mile this time and fixed a problem with my wife's car which was serviced on the IOW during our holiday! Excellent. Will continue to use this trusted garage and thoroughly recommend it.

Good afternoon and thank you for the super prompt review. Glad we could help
Lovely team, very efficient & accommodating
First time at the garage, which was recommended by neighbours. I took my car in this morning without a booking enquiring about a minor repair in the hope it would be fixed today. I was greeted by friendly faces & a polite team, who I had never met before. They offered to squeeze my car in between other bookings, which was very accommodating. I took a nice stroll into Stansted Abbott’s and by the time I returned with my shopping, my car was on the ramp being repaired. During that time I got to meet Darcy the garage dog who is the friendliest and cutest dog I've ever met. She’s part of the team and another positive to my experience at the garage today. The team are incredibly friendly, efficient and there is a lovely community vibe. From this experience I would be happy to return for further MOT’s & repairs in the future.

So happy you enjoyed your experience with us so much! We do aim to provide a community based service and regularly have neighbours popping in, mainly to see Darcey (COVID allowing)! I think the reason you had problems leaving a review was that there was no charge on this visit :)
Fantastic, trustworthy and outstanding customer service.
Customer Service
Used this garage first time for my car service, however they helped my son so much over the phone with their expertise without anything in return. The owners, their employees are all so kind, reliable, honest and above anything they are extremely trustworthy. I will recommend these people to anyone without any hesitation and they will be my future garage for our cars. Thank you.

Full Service and MOT
Customer Service
DJ's carried out a full annual service and MOT today. My car was delivered at 7.30 am and I received a call before 11.00 to advise me it was ready for collection. I have used this firm for nearly twenty years, at their previous location and now in Stanstead Abbotts. It's a family-run business and they are as friendly and genuine as they are efficient.

Honest, trustworthy, friendly, and always go over and above to fit you in even though they are popular. We have been visiting this garage for MOTs, services, and any fixes for our car for years now. The customer service is outstanding and they are so knowledgeable and reliable. Highly recommended.

Good morning Jenny, although we are usually pretty booked up, we do make a point of making ourselves available for our loyal customers. So happy to help.
Well beyond the call of duty....excellent service!
Customer Service
We've been taking our cars to DJ Garage services for 20 years, for MOT's, services and mechanical work and have always received the most helpful, polite, honest, and excellent service every time (whatever the age of our vehicles!) Our ageing Volvo recently needed a new throttle body and despite the part no longer being made, Chris managed to locate a replacement and fit it, all within his quote despite the (extra) hours it must have taken to find one. He is a man of his word! This garage always goes beyond the call of duty, and have never let us down. Their customer care, respect, ongoing communication and integrity can be relied upon. Thank you Chris, Pippa and all the mechanics!

Good morning Eleanor, thank you for writing such thoughtful feedback following your recent visit to us. It is always good when a plan comes together. With very best wishes Chris and Pippa
Amazing service!!
Customer Service
My car was making a terrible grinding noise every time I pressed on the brakes so I stopped at DJ garage after dropping the kids at school. I was told that they were really busy today but could fit me in tomorrow. I think he could see the look of desperation on my face as well as telling me that it was very dangerous to continue driving so managed to get the work all done and dusted before school pick up. Great service and reasonably priced. Lovely staff!! I highly recommend and will definitely be using them again.
