"Very happy, cheaper than main dealer and similar service. Does what it says on the tun."
Simply the hedt
"From bringing my car in to collecting my car I received 1st class service. I was most impressed with the free health check video showing the corroded discs. I am relieved knowing I have found a garage I can rely on. I will be back next year for the MOT and service."
"Steve and other colleagues very professional polite very informative thanks"
"Very pleased with the work done"
"Car collected on time. Provided short and accurate video of the inspection. Identified a damaged tyre (repaired) and commented that rear brake pads had worn. Replaced without any fuss and car returned. Only issue, they could have vacuumed the car before returning, which was a service I expected, but not offered, nor supplied. Otherwise, excellent. Would use again."
"Great price, quick, friendly"
"First time I’ve used them, thought the video link emailed to you after initial vehicle inspection to show you the work needed was a great idea, all garages should do it! Communication excellent, kept me updated at all stages, they even cleaned my car! First garage I’ve come across that have been great from start to finish, usually I come away with some gripe. Friendly staff too. Would definitely recommend & shall be back."
"Always reliable and honest-first garage I have found that I completely trust"

What do you think about when choosing a garage for your service?
What is most important for you when you’re booking in your car’s service? For many people working in or near Cheltenham, it’s about finding a time that fits around office hours, school pick-ups or nursery drop-offs; BookMyGarage can help here by telling you which garages offer car collection and/or a loan car while yours is out of action. Hanging on the phone while you try to get on with the rest of your life is not ideal so the option to book online with a service such as BookMyGarage can prove invaluable. Of course, you also want a garage you can trust which is where the star ratings from other car owners in Cheltenham come in, to help you make the right choice.
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 Cheltenham should consider 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 Cheltenham 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 Cheltenham 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.
