Great service !!
"I was hoping to get my car beck next day at leaset, but instead it was ready the day i droped it there ;D I was really surprise. Everything was done. All the 'problems' were explained to me, there was few thing that i thought should be fixed, but they didnt required any work, that saved me some money. Great garage, awesome people, definitaly going back whenever i will have to. Thank guys for great job ;)"
"My car was picked up and dropped off from and to my home. I think this is a brilliant service to offer especially because I have children."
"Very happy with the service - couldn't fault them"
"First time I used Top Gear & I was pleasantly surprised at the excellent service received. They communicated well, collected the car when they said they would & I'm pleased with the quality of work - what more could you ask for? Perhaps a wash & polish would be the icing on the cake!"
Best Garage around
"Good, honest mechanics."
Very Good service
"Although I had to wait a while for my car to be ready, I had a very good experience with top gear and will use them again."
"Very happy the added value of the free collection and return service. Prompt on time and a pleasure to deal with. Just what you would expect from a good company."
"Really friendly and helpful guys! I was struggling to get my car in on the day I wanted due to work commitments, but they offered to pick my car up and dropped it off when they were done, taking the payment over the phone so I didn't have to take any time off work. In the past they've been very honest about the work needed, they won't try to make money out of you and you can see they take pride in what they do! Would 100% recommend!"
Great value MOT & Servicd
"Had a service and MOT on my 2006 Honda Jazz. The work was done quickly and to a good standard. Great value and will be using Top Gear again!"
"No unnecessary repairs carried out, advisories with explanations on timescales to stay safe."
"The work carried out was to a high standard and well organised. "
"The customer service was outstanding at short notice they still were very kind and collected and returned my car for me as I have a 4 month old which I didn’t want to be out in this heat for long periods of time so I was very greatful that they managed to get me in so thank you so much!"

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 Derby 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.
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 Derby should consider an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles).
What are common repairs your car may need?
One of the most common and critical car problems is a slipping clutch. How long a clutch lasts varies depending on the age and model of your car, the conditions you drive in, and the way you drive so the most important thing is to know how to spot a clutch problem when you’re out driving in and around Derby. You might find that the revs (RPMs) suddenly shoot up but the road speed doesn’t increase. Acceleration may not be as effective as it once was. This will be more obvious in a manual car than in an automatic as the clutch usually slips during a gear change. Expect to pay in the region of £400 to have your clutch replaced but make sure you get the best service and price for you by checking Derby garages with BookMyGarage.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Derby 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.
