"This is my second year using The Pitstop for my MOT and service and once again the service was brilliant, these guys really go above and beyond. The value for money is outstanding, the work completed very quickly and the staff are all really helpful and friendly! Definitely recommend, especially to any single ladies that worry about being taken advantage of by not knowing about cars, these guys are the best!"
"Very happy with the efficient service,very helpful in the way they pick up and return the car to home"
"Was very happy with the service!!!"
Lovely Man :)
"The amount of work that needed doing came to a lot of money but the guy telling me about the work needed really did his best to lower the cost and get me the best deals."
"The idea of getting your car picked up and dropped off is amazing but my main gripe is the Chap took all the air fresheners off and left the mats and doors covered is mud. I spent ages cleaning this off and I just wish they'd take more care."
"Great customer service and very helpful staff and workmanship"
"Eventhough they mention lift available that day on the website, but there was no lift available. Wrong information. The reason i booked with them was due to lift available on that day."
"I was really happy with the serve and friendly staff who informed me in advance and gave me the option weather or not i wanted the extra work done by them before they continued with the rest of the service."

What do you think about when choosing a garage for your service?
It’s often the case that we stick with what we know when it comes to car servicing. Proximity to home, familiarity with the staff and simple force of habit all play a major part when we choose a garage. But what if you could instantly compare Colchester garages’ prices, speed and quality of service, and customer feedback - and book online at the same time? BookMyGarage does all this for you in a matter of moments, free of charge, leaving you to get on with the rest of your day.
Do you know when your car needs a service?
When do you need to take your car in for a service? The general recommendation is that your car has a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every couple of years (or 24,000 miles). That said, the make, model, mileage and age of your vehicle will all affect how often it needs a service. Your owner’s manual is a good place to start to make sure you’re getting your car serviced when you should. You should also think about having an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles) if you're covering long distances beyond Colchester on a regular basis, or you know your car has some issues.
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 Colchester garage at the right price.
What do you need from your garage?
You may live within walking distance of a garage which offers most of the services you need. However, by sticking with the nearest garage in Colchester you could be missing out on a better deal. What if a garage with a collection / drop off service or courtesy car could do the same job at a good price, without the inconvenience of losing your car for the duration of the repair? BookMyGarage allows you to search for local garages which offer this facility, and compare their prices, all in one session.
