An excellent service
"Booking system very easy via the web; fast, efficient and friendly service with sensible advice about cost-effective repairs to a good quality car well past its prime. Highly recommended."
Relisble so far.
"I've used tl motors for a few years. They are helpful, reliable and dont seem to try to do unnecessary work."
"I was put in touch with T L Motors through an independent broker and they proved to be pretty good. Having just bought the car, I wanted a full service plus a few additional extras. They did pick up a couple of extras while doing the service and sent the photos to the broker (gearbox link and clutch plate). They were sent on to me with the suggestion that they were undertaken. The £350 service turned into £1,800 of work. This is totally the fault of the 'lovely' people who sold me the car. It was good for them to have picked these items up otherwise the bill would have been greater when they would have failed on the road. I would give them five star but, the rear parking sensor was not reconnected after the gearbox was refitted and the service document was not left in the car."
"Very polite and friendly, good service."
"Did not charge me when it turned out the knocking in the rear of my car was just a loose parcel shelf (doh!) very nice of them!!"
Always helpful and fair
"They charge the maximum for an MOT but that means that they don't have to overcharge for any work that needs to be done."
MOT and Service

Great, no hidden costs
"Straight forward and friendly advice given, no pressure to spend more."
"Collie is great and polite person. He was very nice from start to finish. Greeted me politely when I reached garage conducted the service and also did some extra work for very meaningful price. No unnecessary over pricing. Highly recommended if you are first timer and looking for car garage."

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 Barnet - 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 Barnet? 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.
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 Barnet should consider an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles).
What are common repairs your car may need?
One of the most common and critical car problems is a slipping clutch. How long a clutch lasts varies depending on the age and model of your car, the conditions you drive in, and the way you drive so the most important thing is to know how to spot a clutch problem when you’re out driving in and around Barnet. You might find that the revs (RPMs) suddenly shoot up but the road speed doesn’t increase. Acceleration may not be as effective as it once was. This will be more obvious in a manual car than in an automatic as the clutch usually slips during a gear change. Expect to pay in the region of £400 to have your clutch replaced but make sure you get the best service and price for you by checking Barnet garages with BookMyGarage.
What do you need from your garage?
We all have different needs, and choosing a garage is no different. For some of us, it’s the quality of the overall service which matters most; not just the work that’s done under the bonnet, but the human interaction that comes with it. BookMyGarage allows you to compare Barnet garages on everything from their waiting room refreshments or whether having your toddler in tow is going to be a problem, to how clearly the staff can explain the work your car requires.
