We understand the importance of having a car so we offer our customers the use of a courtesy car to use FREE of charge while we work on getting your car back on the road. Alternatively, if you live or work nearby, one of our friendly team members can drop you home and pick you up when your car is ready - it couldn't get any easier! 

Our latest service tool is the new customer app which allows you to schedule appointments, get updates on work in progress, and have two-way messaging with the workshop. App users can even send in recordings of mysterious sounds. The app also features useful tools such as a library of warning lights and their meanings, current offers from our shop, vehicle-related recall information, and a FAQ section about common vehicle issues.
