"I've used this garage for many years and they always provide a fast and effective service"
Great local garage
"This guys are a pleasure to work with. I've had my tyres fitted with them last year and was impressed by how I was welcomed (they also haven't charged me for a service I requested just because they didn't think there was a need to). Therefore came back for some checks as my car had a strange knocking in the back. They have looked for any issues, they even fitted a new rear brake bulb that was gone and not taken any money for the service. I already booked the MOT with them and will service my car every single time I have a chance to. It's the human interaction that makes the biggest difference and these guys are passionate about cars and about providing a great service to theri customers. HUGE RECOMMENDATION!"
"Very happy and satisfied with the service. Highly recommended"
"Been using this garage for years. Honest, reliable and all round good garage"
"This was my first visit. The drop off was easy, the price better than main dealer and the service very friendly and professional. I booked for an MOT and full service but was informed that no service was actually due despite the dash warning, so they only did and only charged for what was necessary. Also the car came back clean and valeted which was a lovely touch. I would recommend Independent and will use them again."

How do you choose a garage for your service?
What is the first thing you do when it’s time to choose a garage for your annual service? Do you just pick up the phone to the garage you’ve been using since you first drove a car - even if it’s miles out of Bala - because that’s what you’ve always done? Do you ask friends for their recommendations? Or do you compare prices, speed and quality of service, and feedback for all the garages in and around Bala? While this might seem the most systematic approach, it is also the most time-intensive. But BookMyGarage lets you do just that and book in your service with your chosen garage online at the same time.
What type of car service do you need?
Did you know that there are 3 main types of car service? The annual service is called a Full Service. It includes all the basic checks, maintenance and any essential work. It should also tell you about any signs of wear and tear. If you’re often travelling beyond Bala and clock up more than 12,000 miles in a year, consider booking your Full Service before the 12 months are up. It’s a good idea to get a Major Service every couple of years (or 24,000 miles); this is a really thorough check of your vehicle that includes all essential maintenance as well as parts that should be replaced every 24 months. The third of the 3 main services is the Interim Service. Carried out every 6 months (or 6,000 miles), it is recommended if you regularly cover long distances, or if you know your car has problems.
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 Bala for your needs.
What do you need from your garage?
This might sound like a question with an obvious answer: you need a garage that can service or repair your car quickly and at a good price. But think again and you may realise there are other factors that affect your choice of garage in Bala. If you need to bring your son or daughter with you when you take your car in, are there toys in the waiting room? If you’re dropping the car off between school and work, can you pick up a cup of coffee while you’re there? Might the garage even collect your car and drop it back at your house after the work is done? You can find answers to all these questions on BookMyGarage.
