"Friendly welcome,and when I picked the car up as well."
Full service & MOT
"Chosen and booked online as website showed a short notice appointment. After confirmation email; no contact, no pick up, no service, no nothing ! Not going to chase someone to give them my money, so, booked into Kwikfit for 2 days later. They did a marvellous job."
"The best part is that they come over to pick and drop the car but the only lacking bit is you don't know what is done to the car.Atleast a detailed documentation should be provided which includes for eg. Brakes checked followed by a tick.This will make you feel that at least something has been done.My Tyre pressure was way too low in the back wheels following the service .Had to fill it up myself.Include an interior and exterior cleaning as well even if you have to go up on the price.It will be much appreciated."
"Really knowledgeable, helpful and reasonable price"
"Some delays with producing paperwork but was given valid explanation as to what was happening. I understand that there was some confusion over the booking made using Book My Garage but the original date of the booking was kept with some agreement to the exact time of the MOT made nearer the date."
"Competitive price for a service and MOT and quotes for other work not too unreasonable. Being able to collect and drop car off after the work was done, was a bonus."
"I was happy with the pick up and drop of option free of charge and they kept me informed throughout the whole process which was great considering I wasn't there. They were very friendly and helpful too"
"timely and appears ok"
"The men working there were very friendly and chatty, was able to book my mot around my working hours. Definitely recommend, it was quick too, so not much waiting around :)"
"Booked an MOT in the morning and teh garage were able to accommodate me the same day. Arrived at 4pm and was seen to straight away and out again by 5pm. Excellent service and highly recommended."
Service & MOT

What do you think about when choosing a garage for your service?
It’s often the case that we stick with what we know when it comes to car servicing. Proximity to home, familiarity with the staff and simple force of habit all play a major part when we choose a garage. But what if you could instantly compare Basildon garages’ prices, speed and quality of service, and customer feedback - and book online at the same time? BookMyGarage does all this for you in a matter of moments, free of charge, leaving you to get on with the rest of your day.
Do you know when your car needs a service?
When do you need to take your car in for a service? The general recommendation is that your car has a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every couple of years (or 24,000 miles). That said, the make, model, mileage and age of your vehicle will all affect how often it needs a service. Your owner’s manual is a good place to start to make sure you’re getting your car serviced when you should. You should also think about having an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles) if you're covering long distances beyond Basildon on a regular basis, or you know your car has some issues.
What are common repairs your car may need?
The cambelt (or timing belt) is a very important component that regulates the operation of your car engine. If it breaks, it can cause expensive damage, so when it comes to the cambelt prevention is better than cure. This crucial part of your engine will have an inbuilt lifespan. Varying from make to make, some manufacturers suggest replacement at 40,000 miles, others are said to last as long as 110,000 miles. Check your owner’s manual for your specific car. Some tell-tale symptoms that your cambelt might be wearing out include erratic engine behaviour at around 2000 - 4000 RPMs, or your exhaust suddenly starting to expel more smoke than usual. This is an indicator that your engine is struggling and under duress - time to click on BookMyGarage and find a great Basildon garage at the right price.
What do you need from your garage?
You may live within walking distance of a garage which offers most of the services you need. However, by sticking with the nearest garage in Basildon you could be missing out on a better deal. What if a garage with a collection / drop off service or courtesy car could do the same job at a good price, without the inconvenience of losing your car for the duration of the repair? BookMyGarage allows you to search for local garages which offer this facility, and compare their prices, all in one session.
