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 Blairgowrie - 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 Blairgowrie? 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 Blairgowrie 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 Blairgowrie 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 Blairgowrie 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 can you save money (and the environment) while you drive?
As every garage owner will tell you, there are some tried and tested ways to cut down on your petrol costs (and consumption) while you’re out and about in Blairgowrie or beyond. One is to shut your windows. If you can hear that wind noise in your car it’s costing you more to drive. This is because the car becomes less aerodynamic and has to work harder to motor along. Removing a roof rack will improve your fuel efficiency for the same reason. Another useful tip is to combine short trips into one; each time you drive after your car has been parked for a while the engine will be cold and need to use a lot more fuel for the first 5 miles or so. If you do one trip from school drop-off to supermarket to office you’ll use far less fuel than if you do all those trips individually.
