Really helpful
Customer Service
At the beginning of the day I had a broken, stranded car and by the end of the day it was home and fixed! We broke down and although Welwyn Test Centre couldn’t collect the car they were able to recommend someone who could. They then took delivery of it despite being busy and us not booking the car in, and they were able to replace the battery ready for me to collect the car before they closed for the day. The service on the phone and in person was excellent. They were really helpful, explained what they could do and what I could expect, and fixed the car sooner than expected. Thank you!

Simply perfect
Customer Service
Had a timing chain replaced, A big and expensive job. Ian kept me posted on costs and related issues. Invoice, was as quoted no more no less and done on time. Have peace of mind as all jobs come with a no quibble years warranty. Why would anyone want another garage, they have been in situ for 50 years so that says it all. Lorna, the receptionist is also a pleasure to deal with, always pleasant and professional keeping one updated, a very charming lady. The garage is very fortunate to have employees like Ian and Lorna the ones I’ve dealt with, I’m certain the others are just as professional. Quite frankly, probably one of the best garages around! 🙏
