"Friendly and helpful staff, quick work too!"
"Clearly explained what and why needs doing and overall delivered great service."
Great service friendly
"Couldn't be happier with the service everything explained and best course of action it no pressure to have any of it done. All old parts kept to show what was changed and why. Would highly recommend to anyone who needs work carried out."
"Helpful staff, great value for money and great workmanship."
"They picked my car up from my house, completed a service and mot (which it passed) before dropping it back off at my house a few later! Exceptionally convenient, and for £118 for a 320d service and MOT, exceptionally good value for money too!"
"I am very happy for the quality of service received. I was able to get appointment for the same day and my vehicle was back on the road in the evening of the same day. I will definitely recommend them to other drivers."
"generally OK. They were unable to contact me to discuss repairs, although of course when they tried ringing my mobile when I was there, it did work OK. They provided a quote for repairs, at my request."
"Prompt service and excellent standard of workmanship. First time that we have used Bath Road Vehicle Services and very pleased that we have a such a good independent garage local to us."

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 Beaminster - 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 Beaminster? 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 sure when your car service is due? Check your owner’s manual in the first instance, as it depends on the make, age and mileage of your car. Sometimes the last garage which serviced the car leaves a sticker on the inside of the driver’s door as a further reminder. As a rule of thumb, your car should have a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every two years (or 24,000 miles). It’s really important to take your car for regular services, for both the smooth running of your vehicle and to make matters straightforward when you sell it on. If you frequently make trips beyond Beaminster and generate a high annual mileage, consider an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles).
What are common car problems to look out for?
A common car problem which is worth taking action on fast is a faulty alternator. The alternator is a simple but key part in your car - as well as powering your headlights it gives your battery the power it needs to start the car, so it’s pretty important. There are a few signs to look out for if your alternator is starting to fail, from dimmed headlights when you’re driving around Beaminster at night or a light appearing on the dashboard, to a growling sound or unusual smell coming from the engine. If you spot any of these, find a Beaminster garage on BookMyGarage and get your car checked out. Prices for a replacement alternator can vary a lot depending on the make and model of your car, but are generally around £200-£300.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Beaminster 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.
