"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."
"Helpfulness of manager Sean"
Great service as always!
"Great service from start to finish, a call to confirm the booking, confirmation of opening times and a call to say when the job was completed"
"Perfect as always, fair prices and good work, I'll definitely be returning when I next need something done, thanks!"
"I had a full service and MOT. They collected my car for me first thing then carried out the MOT and rang me to tell me the outcome then carried out the service and rang again when that was completed. They dropped my car back off again at tea time and even rang me when they was on their way. The price was very reasonable. I didnt need to have any work done so i cant really comment on quality of work. But i was really happy with the service i received. The collection and drop off of my car was a life saver because i would have been stranded waiting at the garage if not. The only tiny thing is they didnt reset my service reminder on my car so it still keeps saying my service is over due, but thats minor. Overall very happy"
"Easy to book and good communications from Patcham Garage. Kept me in the loop about the status of the MOT. Ordered a new tyre for the one that needed replacing and fitted it. Let me know when I could collect. Very good service."
"Top notch service ,kept in touch on requirements"
"Happy with service"
"Good price for MOT , unfortunately car failed but was told what needed doing and for the amount needed the price was reasonable. Would come back again for any future work."

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.
