Russell B
I did my apprenticeship at a garage in Swindon as I studied with Northstar College. After graduating I left and went to Charlie Browns auto services for 2-3 years. Following my time at Charlie Browns I went to work for Mr. Clutch for 3 years where I progressed from mechanic, to assistant manager, to store manager. After learning all I could from Mr. Clutch I decided to go self employed and also do mobile mechanic work, and I have been doing that for about 7-8 years now.

Russell and the team were fantastic from the off. I had taken the car to my local garage who couldn’t find where the noise was coming from, Russell found it within 5minutes of turning up, ordered the parts and fixed it. One happy Honda again. Great communication throughout, especially after the initial auxiliary part sent to him was the incorrect one. Couldn’t recommend highly enough

Russell and partner were very friendly and very punctual. Unfortunately I ordered the wrong battery so they had to go and swap for right one, my fault but they said no problem. All done and very happy with service. Glad I looked on search engine because I've never heard of your company before but very pleased with the service. Thank you

My clutch was slipping so booked the mechanic. They cancelled the first appointment due to illness and re-arranged for the next day. They replaced the clutch the next day but it was still slipping afterwards. They then arranged to come and replace it again under warranty and cancelled due to a breakdown of their vehicle and re-arranged. They did replace the clutch later in the week and discovered further problems one of which they fixed but advised I would need a gear box replacement and promised to get in touch. I have heard nothing despite chasing so have given up.

Russell and his team were very nice individuals and if this had been a simple repair I think you would be in good hands, however my experience was it probably got to complicated so they just stopped responding.

Reply from Russell:

We are ever so sorry we did not meet your expectations this time around mark!

Regarding this booking, after we fitted the initial clutch to your vehicle your rear main seal saturated the new clutch causing it to slip. We replaced the clutch under warranty as a good will gesture even though it breached warranty guildlines. We informed you about your input shaft on your gearbox and showed you the internal damage to it. We suggested to have a new gearbox fitted as otherwise it would destroy the new clutch again. In regards to communication, Russell has explained that he was sourcing a second hand box for you and due to them only being exported abroad this was found to be harder than expected while keeping it cost effective.
This caused a delay trying to get the part for you.

We are still more than happy to carry on with this job and hopefully change your mind about us 😁

Russell has had over 17years as a professional mechanic and no job is too complicated for us to do. We are sorry you feel this way.

In respect to your situation we are more than happy to offer a 15% discount on a major service if you book with us in the future as a good will.

Russell was nice enough, unfortunately wasn’t able to make the repair as he was supplied with the wrong part and the required part was unobtainable. Hence cancelled further work until I can get the part.

Russell was great - diagnosed a secondary issue on my car that he booked in. The parts hadn't arrived on the day so he went out of his way to locate the parts to ensure the job was completed. Really happy with the service and would recommend Russell as a mechanic.
