Terrible company avoid at all cost!!
Customer Service
So I have had my gear box re conditioned twice in 13 months. Very rude and shocking service. Don't get me wrong it was done quickly because it needed to be paid for again!! They take no accountability for any work they do. The work done 1st time was done wrong and so when it broke down again 1 month and 1 day out of warranty (obviously) this was no fault of the company of course Gearboxes are only made to last 13 month if you use this place!! Shocking!!

I am upset to read your review as it is factually incorrect and unrepresentative of your experience of our company and our hard working staff. All of our telephone calls are recorded; I have therefore taken the time to listen to all of them, our staff was extremely informative and friendly throughout. In addition they worked hard on your behalf to get you the best discount (£515+vat). I was personally in the shop when you came to collect your vehicle. I witnessed your interaction with our staff, they were professional and friendly I do understand that it is upsetting to have a repair bill but you are blaming GRGB for it when we are not at fault. These are the facts, GRGB provided Bridgeyate Motor services with a reconditioned gearbox on 14.01.21. The Gearbox was supplied to them with a Service and Maintenance schedule and a warranty registration card. The free 6 month service did not take place with us or with Bridgeyate Motor Services. You told us that you thought you only had the service if there was a problem. A service is to maintain. If there is a problem you should report it immediately not wait for the 6 month service. The six month service would have prevented the situation you have found yourself in. Regardless, we told you we would help you as much as we could because we empathized with you not because we were at fault. As I said at the beginning of my reply, I cannot express how disappointed we are with your review, but wish you all the best.
Booked in quick, Work completed to high standard.

Garage managed to book me in with just a few days notice which was ideal. MOT & Full Service completed. New tyre supplied and fitted, which for its model was cheaper than I could find elsewhere. You get what you pay for.... its a fair price for a job done right. Only thing that stopped me from giving a faultless review, would be I was not told about a headlight bulb adjustment (told was loose), until presented with the invoice. I would expect this to be included within a full service but again since such a good job was done overall its fair. Would use again

Gearbox oil change
Really disappointed with my gearbox oil change that I had there couple of months ago, after they changed the oil the gearbox started leaking oil. I never had that problem before. I had go back to them just 1 month after the oil change and they told me I need to pay another £450 to fix the leak and put new oil in again. I've got another mechanic to check what is going on with the leak and he said they didn't change the gearbox oil filter and they overfilled the gearbox, that is why it is leaking. So now I need to spend more money from my pocket to fix what they did wrong to my car.

The trader replied (on 24/10/2019)
Hello, I am so sorry you are unhappy with the oil change, without knowing your name or vehicle I am unable to comment specifically on your comments. How ever, I can confirm that it is impossible to overfill a gearbox with oil and that filter changes are dependent on the vehicle and type of oil change you have. Most importantly, if you are not happy with any work we have completed we would like to see the vehicle and put it right, we do not quote our customers for a job that we have already completed and they are unhappy with. I would like you to call Leigh on 0117 9541 424 so that we can clarify the issues and help you. We are a small business and customer satisfaction is extremely important to us. (If you have any issues with our work I would like to draw your attention to our complaints procedure, which you can find on the contact us page of our website.) Best regards Team GRGB
Outstanding service
Customer Service
Received the most outstanding service from them. They knew I had travelled a long way and would struggle to get home if car was not fixed same day, so they went above and beyond to make sure it was. Friendly staff. 10/10, would recommend to everyone.

I had my car MOT'd and a new lock fitted on the car door. Both were done in a timely manner and were done to a good standard.

Fitted new clutch and resolved an issue that another garage couldn't - they've done a great job.

Really good company
Customer Service
They rebuilt my gear box a few years ago which prompted me to go back to have the gear oil changed and the service. They couldn't have been more helpful. They're so conscientious and you know you're getting good work done - I highly recommend them
