“I can't thank Inderjit and the team for the work carried out on my car.
The job was accepted within a few hours of requesting a quote.
The communication was excellent, explained every step of the process to ensure of a positive outcome.


Due to unforeseen delays to getting the car to the garage, they went the extra mile to accommodate my cars late arrival and managed to source a part and repair that very same day!

Highly recommended to anyone needing work. They will ensure that they put you first in any situation!

Cars running like a dream now, I'm very happy with the work they completed!“
