"Helpful, friendly and was able to use a hire car whilst mine was having work done. Would use again."
Very positive experience
"Very competitive price, and I liked the fact that a lift to or from home was offered online as part of the deal, though I did not use this service. Service light reset, service book updated. Just one small point: Total bill, as per website, simply stated total amount as being labour, whereas it would have been helpful to note on invoice that oil, filter etc had been replaced, even though this was ticked on service booklet."
"Great value for money. Although the paperwork could be more professionally finished and fully list what work was done and include service stamp"
"Very impressed with their service. I had a noise issue with my car and they booked me in the next day and found out what it was. Very friendly to deal with, highly recommended!"
Great Customer Service
"Top notch and super convenient - especially the pickup/drop off service!"
"Very happy - booked online and they were unaware that I had selected the free pick up and drop off service, but otherwise had a good experience and they rectified the issue quickly"

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 Fairford 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 Fairford 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 Fairford which can help with this type of problem.
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 Fairford 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.
