Started out friendly enough and took my car away.. didn't get my car MOTed on the day promised he actually MOTed it the day later, this is when I found out this was unfortunately the guy who damaged my Mini Cooper last year and told me it was a non-runner when I was instead told it was fine. It took me 2 weeks to get my car back and he continuously ignored any message I had and would delay, apparently putting it through about 5 different MOT's and showing me no proof to any of this. I eventually got my car back and he made me pay some cash in person after continuously mixing up his prices and then adding £100's more on to the final quote bill than what we had agreed in text.

I got my car back and it would make a really loud noise upon start up, as well as having an unusual continuous rattle and the window wiper literally falling off, I planned to have a Mechanic come and view it for me as I was worried and the next day the car wouldn't even start after a few drives the car was completely dead, this went in with barely any issues other than a mild rattle and came out so bad.. scratches on my car, rattling worse than ever, the inside of the car pulled apart. Also can I add a funny part is that he told me some of the extra money I owed was because of the fuel and this came back literally empty, it almost came to a halt going to fill it up with fuel down the road he had emptied it that bad. But the main issue is the fact that my car with seemingly mild issues ended up just like the last car he took from me, completely unresponsive and no longer working, it's now sitting as a non-runner and will need to be sold as such. Also don't expect him to tell you anything about what's being fixed, by who or where its being fixed.

I made a mistake not reviewing my mechanic, I ended up with the same guy that damaged my last car and he done it twice in a row, a mistake I won't make again, always research your mechanic, if you do end up with this guy, please be very careful.

Dougie promptly accepted the job within 2 hours of me requesting a mechanic through this site. I found it super useful that the car was picked up and dropped off with me as it meant I didn't need to mess around my work hours at all. Also saved a lot of money compared with what I was previously quoted at Halfords!

All work done, and was a good service.
The only thing I could fault was, is washed and cleaned my car prior to it’s MOT, but came back dirty, apart from that it was a great service.

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
