Great Customer Service
"Great Customer Service as always and always very helpful"
"Great service and helpful staff"
"Great and efficient service. Staff are always friendly and very helpful. Would definitely recommend ."
Service was good
"Shaw Street staff were very good. I was 5min late for my appointment but they managed to get me in. It’s a busy place that’s obviously popular with the locals. They care about good service and doing a good job. Make sure you get there on time."
Honest & trust worthy
"First time visit to this well known Bolton garage, I have no hesitation in using them again. I drove down 55 mins each way to use this garage and the 4 wheel alignment system. Very pleased with the whole proces including the price, which seemed very fair. Will return soon for future services."
"We are a garage based in Derby and sold a car and asked this garage to MOT and supply brakes for us as our customer lived around the corner and they were extremely helpful. Paul took control of the situation and I cannot recommend them enough. Because we are based in Derby it is always worrying when you use other garages out of town however because of reviews online I decided to use them and was not disappointed. Keep up the good work lads. Chris @ cfcars.co.uk Derby."
"Wonderful customer service. Break down of the total costs, including warranty for my new breaks! I've recently moved to Bolton from Lancaster and had no idea where was a reliable, good value for money garage. Safe to say I'll be taking my car for its MOT next month. Thanks again."
"Contacted within 24 hours and confirmed date and time. DONT DO PICK UP OR COLLECTION AS ADVERTISED. Luckily I could arrange closed by transport. Informed of recommended repair. Garage booklet left in the car. Although I booked cheapest price this did not include vat or labour so price went up. Reception bloke attentive."

When should you get your car serviced?
Do you know how often you should get your car serviced and what type of service you need? There is no hard and fast rule - it depends on the model of car you have and its age. You should find this information in your car owner’s manual. If you’re not sure, enter your mileage on BookMyGarage and we’ll help you decide. As a general recommendation, you should be taking your car for a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every couple of years (or 24,000 miles). If you’re regularly travelling far beyond Bolton for work or to visit relatives, or you have a car with known issues, it’s worth getting an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles).
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 Bolton garage at the right price.
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 Bolton 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.
