We wanted to let you know the steps we are taking in relation to the current situation regarding the Coronavirus.


Naturally, we must take this very seriously.

Not only as a business do we have to make sure we are taking steps to look after our staff members, but also our customers.

Taking the information from the WHO and the British government we have put the following steps in place to help safeguard our customers & staff members.

  • Hygiene – more regular cleaning of high traffic areas within our business. Including phones and card machines etc.

  • Sanitation of Car Keys - Steering wheels etc...

  • New disposable gloves from car to car to avoid cross-contamination.

  • Asking customers to use cash alternative payment methods.

  • We are sorry to advise we are no longer allowing customers to wait in our waiting areas. We are encouraging our customers where possible to arrange for cars to be dropped off and left with us while we carry out any work. 


We are also offering a Free Local collection & delivery service to those who require our services, please note this must be booked in advance as availability is very limited. 


This will not only help the most vulnerable people within our community who may be in isolation, but also minimise the risk to those customers who would normally use our customer waiting area.


Don't Forget while times may be tough at the moment we are able to offer payment plans to enable you to keep your car safe on the road.

Our payment plans mean you can split any car repair bill into 4 easy to manage payments across 4 months.

No Credit Checks - No Fees - No Interest


Where it is safe to do so, Please pass this information onto a friend, family member or neighbour that might find our extra services helpful at this time.
