Trev J
I started up with a youth training team and learned there for a couple years until I moved on and went to work for a local independent garage. Stayed there for about 4 years and then went on to a better opportunity with another independent garage but didn't stay long because I was offered a management position at a 4x4 repair centre. I managed there for the better part of 7 years and decided that I could do the whole process myself, so, for the last 8 years I have been self-employed. I am just started to expand into the mobile mechanic field and am truly enjoying it.

Very happy with the work and being able to do at such short notice. Advised me about a couple of filters that needed replacing before doing so and advised on potential future jobs that may need doing soon. Would definitely use them again.

Unfortunately it was not good news as after Trev used the diagnostic tablet and mechanics stethoscope, it would seem that injectors 2 and 4 had blown. After clearing the faults, after restarting they would not reappear, leading to the conclusion that there was something more sinister afoot and the engine would need stripping to further diagnose. Now a decision is to be made. Thanks to Trev for following up to advise of potential parts, prices and work required.

From the first contact to collecting and returning the car after a service and m.o.t. all was as it should be. I could actually see that the car had been serviced properly and the difference when driving it.
I requested that the spark plugs be replaced ,but after inspection I was told at this stage it was not required saving me money as the cost was removed from the original estimate.

Honest excellent service and fair pricing - what more can you ask?? Having had several bad experiences with other garages on the IOW including quoting for work that did NOT need doing, Trevor from Vectis garage is a very wellcome breath of fresh air. There is an honest mechanic out there - and he is it!! I completely and totally reccommend his services.
