"Great value, I’d recommend to anyone , they even sorted my screen wash jets without asking!"
Quality service & garage
"I was very happy with the services I received. Replacing brakes can be expensive work. While I had to spend a lot to get my car fixed, it wasn't as much as some of the horror stories I heard online about other garages. Also I know they used high quality parts and my car is running much more smoothly now. They kept me informed about what work would be needed throughout the day. Only negative was that I was supposed to get my MOT half price (for £19) because I was getting it with a full service, but when I got home and looked at my bill, I had been charged full price (£39). Overall quality service, good garage, would recommend."
"very friendly and work completed in good time with no unexpected problems"

What do you think about when choosing a garage for your service?
What is most important for you when you’re booking in your car’s service? For many people working in or near Ingatestone, it’s about finding a time that fits around office hours, school pick-ups or nursery drop-offs; BookMyGarage can help here by telling you which garages offer car collection and/or a loan car while yours is out of action. Hanging on the phone while you try to get on with the rest of your life is not ideal so the option to book online with a service such as BookMyGarage can prove invaluable. Of course, you also want a garage you can trust which is where the star ratings from other car owners in Ingatestone come in, to help you make the right choice.
When should you get your car serviced?
Do you know how often you should get your car serviced and what type of service you need? There is no hard and fast rule - it depends on the model of car you have and its age. You should find this information in your car owner’s manual. If you’re not sure, enter your mileage on BookMyGarage and we’ll help you decide. As a general recommendation, you should be taking your car for a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every couple of years (or 24,000 miles). If you’re regularly travelling far beyond Ingatestone for work or to visit relatives, or you have a car with known issues, it’s worth getting an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles).
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 Ingatestone for your needs.
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 Ingatestone 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.
