"Easy to book in, good correspondence"
"Pleased with how easy it was to book online. Reasonably priced and I’ve booked car in for an MOT. Both Tony and Mick were friendly and professional. Will definitely be recommending them and use them again for any future repairs."
"I was very happy with the service. Normally I can be very intimidated by machanics at garages as they see a woman coming and take advantage that women are non the wiser when it comes to cars however I felt very comfortable and at ease the lads were very helpful and I will be going back there"
"Very happy with the service received from the garage, all work carried out very professionally, I will use again in the future."
Value for money
"Booking was simple and when I arrived at the garage everything was ready for me. The work was completed at the time advised, but a car service is a difficult thing to review as there is nothing to see. The garage itself is tucked away on a trading estate and can't be described as a 'Glass fronted Shiney Dealership' but don't let that put you off. They know what they are doing."
"I am very pleased with this garage. Nothing was a problem. They came to pick my car up and dropped it back off again, no charge."
If you’re looking for a garage in Ashington for your service, you can choose from 11 on BookMyGarage. We know how important it is to find a local garage you can trust and the star ratings from other car owners in Ashington will help you to choose the best one for you.
How do you choose the best garage for your service?
It’s usually only once a year but it has to be done - so where do you take your car for its service? To the garage round the corner because it’s the nearest, even though you don’t really understand what they tell you? To the place your friend recommends, even though it charges more than most Ashington garages? Or to a big, national chain garage - you’d rather support an independent but you feel safer with a big brand? BookMyGarage can give you the confidence to book differently. You’ll find Ashington garages near you rated by other car owners, with transparent, immediate details of their prices and services. Booking online takes just one minute, and the garage only sees what they need to know - no unnecessary sharing of your personal details. You and the garage get the full information on the booking, saving you and the garage even more time and hassle.
When should you get your car serviced?
Not everyone is organised enough to know when an MOT is due, but what about a service? The make, age, mileage and average usage of your car all play a part in this question, but in general your car should undergo a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every two years (or 24,000 miles). Some helpful garages apply a sticker to the driver’s door noting the date when the next service is due, but the best thing is to check the owner’s manual which should detail the service history of the vehicle. When you buy a new car or sell your existing one, it’s important to have that service history filled out so that a potential buyer or dealer can see at a glance that the car’s been properly looked after. High mileage drivers who regularly travel outside Ashington should consider an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles).
What are common repairs your car may need?
Have you ever returned to your usual parking place to find a suspicious dark stain where your car was parked overnight? Take action fast as engine oil leaks should not be ignored; there’s a danger of potential engine damage or failure if your engine runs low on oil. If the liquid is dark brown or yellow, and it feels slippery or greasy, it is probably motor oil. A pink or red slippery liquid could be automatic transmission fluid, while green or orange liquid with a sweet smell is most likely antifreeze (watch out for pets and young children around this one as it’s highly toxic). A clear, oily liquid could be power steering fluid. Whatever it is, get the car checked by a trusted garage. Typical costs of repairing a leak are hard to give as the reason could be something simple such as a worn seal, or it could be a sign of a major issue with your engine. Use BookMyGarage to find the most suitable garage in Ashington for your needs.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Ashington or further afield, think about road user etiquette. Showing respect for other road users makes driving more pleasant for you and safer for everyone. For example, if you have to make a last minute change of lane, make your request to change clear to the driver who will need to let you in - and signal your thanks if they do. Be ready to abandon the change of lane if they won’t play ball - your safety (and that of other drivers and pedestrians) is more important than getting to your destination in the shortest time possible. When the position is reversed and a driver asks your permission to change lanes, allow them to as long as it is safe. If you get frustrated, avoid using your horn - it won’t improve matters and might make them considerably worse.
