Cannot recommend highly enough!
Customer Service
Courteous, always keep you in the loop, clear explanations and choices, value for money, absolutely wonderful and first class service. This time it was a breakdown and I gave the garage zero notice, my car was recovered to them at 4pm, and they still managed to get everything fixed (plus the annual MOT and service completed!) by the end of the following day.

Another very competent and professional repair
Customer Service
Booked the day before: rear nearside door handle had been wrenched off plus an intermittent fault with a reversing light. Both items were effectively and satisfactorily put right. I always find DJ highly trustworthy, knowledgeable and accessible. I'm always confident in recommending DJ to friends and acquaintances.

Happy New Year! Many thanks for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. Always gratifying when we know a new customer has been recommended personally.
Always friendly, always reliable and always reasonably priced
Customer Service
I forget how long we've been using DJ Garages but it must be around 20 years or something. They are the only garage we consider when we have to have our cars MOT'd, serviced or repaired and that's despite moving out of the local area over 7 years ago! Why? They've never let us down, always provide great comms, do a great job and the prices are very reasonable. Underneath it all, Chris and Vince are just really nice guys and it shows in their business - I'd definitely recommend this garage to anyone.

I have been using this garage for a while and so grateful I came across it. They always give 100% putting their customers first. On this particular job, my beloved camper van engine cam shaft ceased shredding the cambelt on route to the New Forest. Got towed to the garage. Upon diagnosis and being consoled by their lovely dog, my campervan needed a new engine. After a long search finding a engine for an old camper we found one. Throughout the whole process the garage kept me up to date with the progress. They informed me the donor engine I had purchased in good faith had a few issues but they advised and we all agreed to take a slightly different approach, using parts of the donor engine to the original one. Luckily the bottom part of the engine had survived so we used the top part of the donor engine and all works well. My beloved campervan is back on the road all great. The garage are very reasonable and trustworthy and always gives possible realistic outcomes. It’s the best garage and the best dog I have ever known. The dog has 100% in customer services.

Good Morning Campers! Thank you for your kind words, it was a mission but one definitely that put a smile back on your faces. Darcey certainly enjoyed the frequent visits! Take care, Pippa :)
Good value fix to an old car
Customer Service
Our Nissan Micra - 2002 vintage developed a problem with the gear lever not returning to the neutral position. Apparently a spring on the end of the lever had broken. Rather than installing the expensive Nissan replacement DJ re-formed the existing spring and fashioned a bracket to make a repair. All done for £45.

This is where having an mechanical engineer on board is a bonus! Thank you for your very kind comments. Chris
Careful diagnosis and efficient repair
Customer Service
Our Citroen Berlingo had an intermittent warning light appearing. D J spent some time testing things but could find no problem. They did not charge for their time. Some time later the light was on permanently and they diagnosed a faulty Exhaust Gas Recycling valve. This they replaced as a very reasonable cost. A week later the warning light appeared again. The new EGR valve was faulty and they replaced this immediately with no further charge.

We do try our very best, thank you!
Wonderful service
I popped into DJs as I had noticed my bumper was falling off. I expected them to tell me that it will need to be booked in etc but to my surprise, I was made a cup of tea while they looked at it. After 20 mins Chris said it was done - and it really was! I asked how much but they wouldn't take a penny (not even for the oil they topped up). It is very rare to find decent people nowadays but I will genuinely be bringing all my custom to them from now on. Thanks Chris, thanks Paul.
