"I called at Downsway Garage the day before the appointment made via 'book my garage' but the owner told me he had no record of my appointment and was fully booked until the following week. I asked if he knew of 'book my garage' and he said that remembered another customer, 3 months earlier, who claimed to have booked an appointment via 'book my garage' but again he had no record of such an appointment having been made."
Very friendly and helpful
Great as usual!
"Friendly and helpful staff, quick work too!"
"Clearly explained what and why needs doing and overall delivered great service."
Great service friendly
"Couldn't be happier with the service everything explained and best course of action it no pressure to have any of it done. All old parts kept to show what was changed and why. Would highly recommend to anyone who needs work carried out."
"Helpful staff, great value for money and great workmanship."
"They picked my car up from my house, completed a service and mot (which it passed) before dropping it back off at my house a few later! Exceptionally convenient, and for £118 for a 320d service and MOT, exceptionally good value for money too!"
"I am very happy for the quality of service received. I was able to get appointment for the same day and my vehicle was back on the road in the evening of the same day. I will definitely recommend them to other drivers."
"generally OK. They were unable to contact me to discuss repairs, although of course when they tried ringing my mobile when I was there, it did work OK. They provided a quote for repairs, at my request."
"Prompt service and excellent standard of workmanship. First time that we have used Bath Road Vehicle Services and very pleased that we have a such a good independent garage local to us."

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 Dumfries - 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 Dumfries? 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?
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 Dumfries should consider an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles).
What is a common car problem to look out for?
Now and again you might find it hard to turn the steering wheel or, worse, it might lock altogether. This is clearly a problem with the steering but it can have several different causes. Start by checking the power steering fluid levels - there may be a leak. Other causes might be a slipped steering pump belt, damage to the hose that connects to the power steering pump or to the rack and pinion seals. Steering problems that aren’t related to power steering might be the result of unequal tyre pressure, worn steering gear bearings, or loose steering linkage. If you can’t easily identify the cause, or can but aren’t sure how to fix it, BookMyGarage will show you garages in Dumfries which can help with this type of problem.
What do you need from your garage?
This might sound like a question with an obvious answer: you need a garage that can service or repair your car quickly and at a good price. But think again and you may realise there are other factors that affect your choice of garage in Dumfries. If you need to bring your son or daughter with you when you take your car in, are there toys in the waiting room? If you’re dropping the car off between school and work, can you pick up a cup of coffee while you’re there? Might the garage even collect your car and drop it back at your house after the work is done? You can find answers to all these questions on BookMyGarage.
