James B
I have involved with motor cars from the age of 14.Been a mechanic and been a salesman,in fact owned a car repair.restoration bodyshop and car sales business.In fact some of my companies work was often published in magazines that occupied news agents .I was involved in classic cars and sports cars. So a wealth of experiance from all aspects.
I sold my garage and looked for really sometime where I can use my skills and experiance without the stress of owning a busniess.
I am.now employed via a contractor to click mechanic.Been with them for a number of years.
4 days a week I operate 6am to 9pm so before and after work bookings available.


I arrive clean and tidy.work at your home/workplace in a clean and tidy manner.
I'm pleasant and polite and will explain things without jargon.

My wife often attends inspections with me as she was a second hand car buyer for my busniess and she knows a bad car from 100 yards.
We cover a lot of miles in a day,and operate a response car fully signwritten up in click mechanic,so you know who we are
Sometimes traffic holds us up but we do text to give you notice.

waste of £50 didnt tell me anything I didnt already know, tol d me it was fuel fault but listed several different things it could be-instead of telling me what it was- waste of money

Reply from James:

I'm afraid this happens.The job was a non starting car,and I managed to get it started and you was able to drive it .The plug in explained a number of problems and we both agreed these add up to more then the car is worth.
These inspections are not a magic cure,its an inspection to find the issue.A few people do believe a diagnostic fee means the car gets fixed regardless of the problem or the costs there and then.And this would be impossible.

Vauxhall Insignia Plug-in Diagnostic Inspection

Despite what I‘ve done to my car, James as a mechanic didn’t do anything to do the plug-in diagnostic.
Pretty much I’ve paid £30 for nothing, because at the end there was no diagnostic.
Poor service, poor management,

Reply from James:

To be honest words fail me.
I arrive to find you looking after a young child,who you are allowing to run around near traffic with a screwdriver in his hand.
You are so preoccupied with your car this childs welfare you ignore.
Your car had no battery vital to plug a car in.And with a child being allowed to run around unchecked I cancelled the booking.
You simply received a call out fee.i simply had to leave.i could witness your lack of childcare any more.
The camara video i have given to my manager to be past on.
I have over 800 good reviews
