Great customer service.
"My car was picked up from my house at the time I requested. It was my first time to use A1 Autocentre for MOT and service and I am quite happy with the services I received. David at reception was very friendly and helpful. Professional team. Highly recommended."
Only garage I trust!
"This is honestly the only garage I trust, especially being a women and having so many others tell me I have so much wrong with my car. They always show me what needs doing and why. Thank you so much!!!!"
Excellent service 100%
"Excellent communication and top class workmanship, very friendly .A genuine mistake was made on my bill , I was not aware of it but I was contacted as soon as it was noticed by the garage and a refund made to my account, I would not have even known if they had not informed me really honest people . I would recommend them to everyone"
"I love this garage and highly recommended them. They are helpful, friendly and very reliable, Dave on the main desk is very helpful in particular. They are the good old fashioned type of garage that will really help you out. Great service."
"I did my interim service with A1. They kept me informed while waiting. Everything took just about an hour as promised in the beginning. Overall, happy with this garage. Would go back again. (Couldn't give any star rating because the website wouldn't let me. )"
"Car was collected and service was carried out and MOT. I was also kept informed of additional work carried out. I will definitely use again."
Always great service
"I've used A1 on several occasions. Always accommodating with an early drop, friendly service, keep you informed and have known costs to come under initial estimates. I always use for my MOTs & servicing. If repairs are needed they're my first port of call."
"Very happy will be back"
"Good , reliable and competent team of engineers. They are not too expensive however not too cheap either. Good quality of work. The initial cost i was advised was less. On the day of i had to collect my car i was called and informed of extra cost which was unexpected however it is understandable , it will be better if the cost if the job that is quoted stays the same."

When you’re trying to find the right garage in Dagenham for your car’s service, it’s good to be able to see all your options quickly and easily. BookMyGarage will show you 6 trusted garages in and around Dagenham for you to choose from based on proximity, opening hours, price, service and more.
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 Dagenham - 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 Dagenham? 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?
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 Dagenham 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 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 Dagenham 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 Dagenham 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 Dagenham 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.
