Simon and his team sold me a well-kept and serviced Ford Transit Van. From the moment I inquired with them, they were lovely, professional and respectful towards me even though I had millions of questions and concerns as a first time van buyer. They are very experienced with all things car, van and engine related. Since I bought the van they have been extremely kind to me: they have changed the AC, serviced the van, taught me about the engine and electrics, and helped me sort new keys. They have also helped me to strip the inside of the van, clean and pressure wash it at their yard - they have gone above and beyond for me and I am really appreciative of this. It has been great meeting and getting to know Simon, Wayne and also Ben and Jay. They'll always have your back and they said to contact if any issues going forward. I trust them hugely. Thank you guys!

I brought my car to Simon to get a quote for repairing corrosion on the alloys, which had begun to leak air from the tires. I'd had an expensive quote from elsewhere with an estimated 5 days without my car, which would be very difficult for me without a courtesy car, and I came across SGH via Which. Simon assessed the alloys on the spot and said he thought the problem could be fixed by just refurbishing the edges as the main sections looked in fairly good condition, which seemed very practical to me, and gave a very fair ballpark price which I was happy with. He said he had availability to do the job in a few days' time and that he could do it in one day, which I was surprised at, but very pleased if this could be done rather than be without the car for longer than a day or two. When the tires were off there was more corrosion than expected, but Simon very kindly worked hard to stick to the timeframe he had given me, even though I would have been happy for him to have had it another day or two due to the unforeseen circumstances. In the end he worked late to finish it and it was ready for me to collect the next morning. Overall I'm very pleased and the alloys appear to be much improved. Thank you Simon.

I went to get a quote for a small but quite complicated repair and came away with the job done on the spot. Very friendly and efficient and good value for money. Thanks Simon.

MX5 Repairs

Simon and his team completed a couple of important repairs to my MX5 at short notice and to a very high standard. They have the knowledge and experience of MX5's for those fiddly or tricky jobs that your local garage may not have, so I would highly recommend giving them a try be it for mechanical or cosmetic work. They also undertake insurance and restoration work. The bodywork on the MX5 MK1 Dakar I saw while there which they were finishing restoring looked like new.

Simon and his colleagues did a fantastic job fixing up my Ford Focus Estate after I'd been run into by a delivery driver just before Christmas. Simon gave some really good insightful advice in the lead-up to taking the car and even picked it up for me from the insurer's garage. The job is great and car looks as good as new. I think we would have both liked the job to be done a bit quicker, but was dependent on parts being available and was worth it to get a really reasonable price. Thanks Simon.

Simon and the guys at SGH did a fantastic job for me of fixing the back bumper on my car which proved more difficult as it was non-standard. They sent pictures through as the work was in progress so we could keep up to date. Good professional service and at a good price as well would recommend.

Went to Simon with a very damaged write off Toyota Auris which had strong sentimental value to me as it was my dad's pride and joy handed to me when he passed. With the hope of a donor vehicle Simon and his team made it nearly new again and my mum was over the moon. Could not believe the quality of restoration. And would use this company again. Delivered on their promises. Excellent. Thank you

MX5 MK1 Hard Top and Rear Bumper.

I had read about Simon and his team as well as seen the SGH advert. I wanted a hard top from my previous MX5 and the rear bumper from my current MX5 (both NA's) refurbished. Both were in a pretty poor state... the completed work was outstanding very pleased that I made the journey from north Cheltenham to Crews Hole Bristol. Only problem... gonna make the rest of the car look a little shabby. Existing paint job is still pretty OK but Simon and the team have done such a good job that I'm going to have to get them to do the rest of the car. Thanks Simon, Evie, Wayne and the lovely Holly (and her little crew).

Excellent workmanship tarnished by poor communications

I booked my 2004 MX-5 in for sill and chassis rail repairs, as an advert for SGH was displayed in the owners club magazine. In short, Simon and his workshop team have an excellent attention to detail. The quality of the welding and the finish, even up close is something to behold. On a workmanship basis i would definitely recommend them. What tainted my experience somewhat was the lack of /mis-communications with both me (the customer) and between the workshop team and the administration department. Whilst there were some verbal 'it should be around x amount' conversations, I had to ask for written estimates for work 3 times and never actually received anything. Welding work started without official 'go-ahead' from me - not cool. The only confirmation of the cost came when the bill arrived and was much more than i had expected. In fairness to the team, we did reach a price that i was more comfortable with after some negotiation (i was quite firm about my expectations at this point as i'm sure Simon will attest!) but neither of us needed that hassle. So i think to summarise, the learning points from my experience for SGH and future customers would be: - Work quality is a non-issue. Fantastic - Written estimates need to be given before commencing work - Talk to your customers regularly - even a courtesy call every few days Thanks for a great job. I hope my comments are taken in the constructive manner they are meant, sorry I couldn't write more here!
