Dougie D
I began my career with Kwik Fit, I worked my way through all aspects of the business from tyres & exhausts to servicing, MOT repairs & management. I left Kwik Fit to work for an independent garage for a number of years to gain more experience and I then diversified my career by working in the oil industry for 2 years. I came back into the motor trade and worked with National Tyres before starting a garage at the beginning of 2015. And becoming a mobile garage in 2016 trading as D3 Motors. The business caters for all makes and models of vehicle and is there for all servicing and repair needs.

As always Dougie went the extra mile and did a great job. My next booking will be with him again, no doubt

Dougie went above and beyond for me. He had a lot to fit in and knew that I was on a tight time scale to get to my night shift. He was with me asap and worked quickly and efficiently. Nice bloke, solid work

Dougie was great - very reliable, phoned us straight after and sent the review after he'd done the car inspection.

Dougie, phoned to see if he could start work on the brakes earlier than scheduled, earlier the better for me so no problem there. Unfortunately his supplier had set him the incorrect brake pads for the front wheels but was able to have them changed the following morning, these things happen and was through no fault of Dougie. Will happily use again.

Dougie called me straight after the inspection with a detailed report on the car, covering all the good bits, the things that would need sorting soon and what might need watched. Cheers

Dougie seemed like a nice enough guy and the standard of the work done was, as far as I can tell, good. The 1 star for communication is because not only did he not phone me with any information about the progress of my car at all, he also failed to phone me when he said he would. I kept having to chase him up to find out where my car was. In addition to this the work, which is pretty standard, took him from Friday to Monday (last year another garage did more work in 1 day) to complete. I can't figure out why it would have taken that long and it meant I was without my car for work on Monday morning. Finally, I noticed that between the car failing it's MOT and passing, it had been driven 64 miles (no, that's not a typo, 64 miles). There can surely be no justification for that, everyone I've spoken to says 10 miles would have been more than enough. Read more

Dave arrived a little late due to over-run on previous job but had called me to let me know. Worked on to darkness to get job completed. Top man, good job.

Dougie found a failure in the gear lever. He said it was not a major problem, a centring issue and my brain just had to get used to drive it. But actually the problem was big, the gear lever worked too hard. Finally there was a problem with the gear selector. It had to be changed.
