Gary R
I've been working on cars for 40 years in some shape or form. I started off with my father in his garage fixing cars and worked with him when I was 14 years old until i left school. I studied engineering at college and from there I worked in a motorbike shop/garage and eventually I worked at Central Tyres in Essex for a few years and then moved to a few other garages in order to gain a broader spectrum of skills and when I had that in my armoury I began my own business in 1996 and been working in it since. I am able to service all makes/models and tackle all types of repairs.

Gary was definitely very friendly, helpful and knowledgable. He put my mind at rest over a couple of issues and I will most certainly recommend him and ClickMechanic. Thank you very much.

Gary was great, identifed the problem straight away and explained root cause and what needs to be done.
He has 40 years experience and obviously knows his stuff, unlike me that spent 2 days trying to figure it out and eventually called the expert.

Hi,
Gary was one of the best Mechanics I have had the pleasure to meet and have do a repair for us.
Considering the difficult access to the alternator Gary was very quick and we had our car back on the road.
A job well done.

First of all, Gary was very knowledgeable on cars. He helped me on a premium pre-purchase inspection on a 2002 Honda S2000. The car looked and sounded amazing but actually there was some major issue in the Engine and Gary was able to spot it out straight away. It was the problem regarding the head gasket causing the engine overheating at high rpm and he was able to spot that out by just looking into the over pressured coolant leakage through the radiator cap and the unusual coolant level in the header tank. Afterwards, Gary gave me the recommendation of not buying the car or unless cut the price down for £1500-2000 for repairing.

I would highly recommend Gary if you are not extremely knowledgeable on cars especially of a certain age of registration because Gary is very experience in a wide range (year and brand) of cars. He is also very patience and he will talk you through the problem thoroughly and the risk of buying a defected car. He also does not hold back in giving negative comments on car if needed, which is what we are looking for on Clickmechanics to find someone independent with no conflict of interest to inspect. A big thank you to Gary again.

All I can say is everyone needs a Gary!

After seeing the car I wanted online, I was reluctant to travel 3 hours only to have a wasted journey so booked Gary through ‘Click Mechanic’ to do the top level pre-purchase inspection. Within a couple of hours, I had an inspection booked for the following day.

I had never used this service before so was a bit apprehensive but Gary was friendly, knowledgable and easy to get along with, he put me at ease and I immediately knew that he was the man for the job.

Gary did a very detailed inspection on the car, pointed out a couple of minor issues and had the garage agree that they would resolve these issues before I went through with the purchase.
He even got the garage to agree to put 2 new tyres on which were legal, but barely. What a superstar! He doesn’t miss a thing.

I would not hesitate in highly recommending Gary to anyone. Thanks again Gary, you are amazing!
