Great honest staff .
"Great honest staff especially being a women who only knows how to drive a car , I've never been rip off by them as sometimes I've found happens with other garages."
"Booked 2015 Mercedes car in for first MOT. Very friendly and professional staff. Kept informed throughout MOT process. Highly recommended."
Quality service all round
"Great service and very professional with good prices"
"Won't go elsewhere! First time using this garage. Very friendly and professional staff. Took my car in around 9am and by 1pm they'd sorted my car out and it was ready to collect. Excellent value for money and excellent service. Thanks a lot everyone!"
Great derive as always
"Happy with the services but I’m not a mechanic so I wouldn’t know if they did what they say or not however, they seem trustworthy as such, I’m happy"
"Really happy with this service super quick also"
"They were kind enough to let my car stay there 2 extra days when I was unable to pick-up. would recommend."
"Service and one additional repair were completed to a satisfactory level, the car had to be kept in overnight, but I was fully informed of this by the polite staff. Also received a clean!"
"Holocene regassed my aircon but informed me that my condenser needed replacing, which made sense as it had lost gas recently. The charge would have been over £600 which I thought was a little steep so I did not have it done. I found a new condenser from europarts for 1/3 price they would have charged me so I think they are on the expensive side. They did sort out my windscreen washers free of charge, however, which I was impressed with."
Very good service
"Good engagement from the garage, kept me informed and completed all the work without drama. Would use again."
Good Customer Service
"I was very happy with the service. I had accidentally come into the garage the wrong day. However, they were able to squeeze me in. I felt like they were a well-run garage and nice staff. Cheers"

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 Islington, 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 Islington come in, to help you make the right choice.
When should you get your car serviced?
Not sure when your car service is due? Check your owner’s manual in the first instance, as it depends on the make, age and mileage of your car. Sometimes the last garage which serviced the car leaves a sticker on the inside of the driver’s door as a further reminder. As a rule of thumb, your car should have a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every two years (or 24,000 miles). It’s really important to take your car for regular services, for both the smooth running of your vehicle and to make matters straightforward when you sell it on. If you frequently make trips beyond Islington and generate a high annual mileage, 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 Islington 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 Islington 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.
