The service is fantastic and I am a very, very happy customer. Vick who dealt with me is very friendly, helpful and most of all, extremely conscientious. It very much explains why he is realistically considerate with his charges compared to the contemporaries. Honestly, I just can’t recommend this business enough…😁!

Good communication and a personal service kept me at ease throughout the whole situation. Will always advise the best course of action, which may not necessarily be a recovery (e.g. mobile tyre fitting or mechanic). Can guide towards specialists, avoiding expensive main dealer diagnostics.
