"Used 123MOT on the recommendation of a friend as my usual garage became too expensive. Car was quickly back with me and It got a free wash. Very pleased."
"Very good service"
"The workmanship was perfect Was kept informed throughout of price and also given advise re make of car. Very friendly and will no longer go elsewhere ."
"The gentleman at reception was very pleasant and helpful.However the man who did the MOTwas extremely abrupt, but my understanding was that he was stressed. I had asked a simple question whether I could just have 1 windscreen wiper replaced for the car , instead of two, to pass the MOT instead of explaining why this would not be possible ,he angrily went to put old blades back on and tell me my car has failed its MOT."
"No hassle MOT service, and my car was returned clean, very happy customer "

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 Hornchurch - 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 Hornchurch? 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.
Do you know when your car needs a service?
When do you need to take your car in for a service? The general recommendation is that your car has a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every couple of years (or 24,000 miles). That said, the make, model, mileage and age of your vehicle will all affect how often it needs a service. Your owner’s manual is a good place to start to make sure you’re getting your car serviced when you should. You should also think about having an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles) if you're covering long distances beyond Hornchurch on a regular basis, or you know your car has some issues.
What are common repairs your car may need?
Have you ever returned to your usual parking place to find a suspicious dark stain where your car was parked overnight? Take action fast as engine oil leaks should not be ignored; there’s a danger of potential engine damage or failure if your engine runs low on oil. If the liquid is dark brown or yellow, and it feels slippery or greasy, it is probably motor oil. A pink or red slippery liquid could be automatic transmission fluid, while green or orange liquid with a sweet smell is most likely antifreeze (watch out for pets and young children around this one as it’s highly toxic). A clear, oily liquid could be power steering fluid. Whatever it is, get the car checked by a trusted garage. Typical costs of repairing a leak are hard to give as the reason could be something simple such as a worn seal, or it could be a sign of a major issue with your engine. Use BookMyGarage to find the most suitable garage in Hornchurch for your needs.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Hornchurch 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.
