"Very Happy with the work carried out"
Basic A Service
"Very Good Value"
Met the requirements.
"Everything was good but they didn't do the clean of my vehicle because there was a repair needed to be done and they said I could come back and have it down once it was fixed. They said the had vacuumed inside the car regardless as part of the service, but that was not done either."
Great Garage For MOT
"Great garage - we dropped off the car for an MOT, having booked via book my garage, and were able to pick it up again after an hour. No issues at all. Felt very at ease and the mechanic that we spoke to was very polite. I also received a call from the garage the day that I made the booking just to confirm that it had been received. Will definitely use again!"
"Overall a pleasant experience somewhat spoiled by waiting for ages for the paperwork to be completed no helped beings told every few minutes just a little longer"
"Really recommended for the price. However, I went in on a Monday to have my MOT and a full service and as I turned up they said they didn’t have my booking as it doesn’t come in until Monday and they didn’t have anyone in to do a MOT. This really frustrated me but it was quickly resolved as my MOT was done next door."
"Everything was fine. They did turn up much earlier than expected to pick up the car but that is my only small gripe. Will use again."
Seems OK, nice enough ppl
"People were very nice, works seems to be of a good standard, although I suppose I wouldn't really know. I did think £40 for some wipers and fit was slightly over the top and although they were doing my discs, this was found to be advisory work, so probably would use again. But I am probably being a little unfair they may well just be very conscious mechanics."

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 Chichester, 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 Chichester come in, to help you make the right choice.
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 Chichester 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?
Have you ever returned to your usual parking place to find a suspicious dark stain where your car was parked overnight? Take action fast as engine oil leaks should not be ignored; there’s a danger of potential engine damage or failure if your engine runs low on oil. If the liquid is dark brown or yellow, and it feels slippery or greasy, it is probably motor oil. A pink or red slippery liquid could be automatic transmission fluid, while green or orange liquid with a sweet smell is most likely antifreeze (watch out for pets and young children around this one as it’s highly toxic). A clear, oily liquid could be power steering fluid. Whatever it is, get the car checked by a trusted garage. Typical costs of repairing a leak are hard to give as the reason could be something simple such as a worn seal, or it could be a sign of a major issue with your engine. Use BookMyGarage to find the most suitable garage in Chichester for your needs.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Chichester 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.
