Great peace of mind
"My car needed a service and I was honestly dreading it. Luckily I found Acton Service Centre and they really put my mind at ease. I found them very honest and reliable. My car was serviced in a timely fashion and I was kept informed throughout. I was also given some recommendations about my car without ever being pushy about replacing parts."
"It was a 2004 Focus with >130k miles on the clock so it would have been easy to come up with a silly MOT bill. The guys were very helpful and kept me informed through the whole process."
"Very happy with service"
Very good service
"What I think is missing in comparison to other places is the car valetting"
"The guys here are always polite and make you feel comfortable. Wouldn’t take my car anywhere else"
"Very happy with quality of garage. Too many reminder phone calls, emails and text messages to book the appointment, even after appointment was booked."
"Excellent communication. No messing about. Very helpful. Did a great job. Excellent customer service. I will use them again."
"The customer service there is top notch"

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 Hounslow - 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 Hounslow? 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 Hounslow 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 Hounslow. 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 Hounslow garages with BookMyGarage.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Hounslow 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.
