"Really good service"
Very good service!
"Booking was easy, MOT was quick, staff were friendly, they even offered to drop my car back home for me! Impressed, would use again, and would recommend to others."
"Great friendly knowledgable garage, always use them for our vehicles - very reasonable prices."
Cheaper than I had hoped!
"Friendly, helpful, understanding. I find it difficult to trust mechanics (as I don’t know the work myself, and have heard bad stories), but these guys might just have me change tack! Good work, easy communication, on time "
Great local service
"Having moved from Plymouth recently I was really happy to have found a friendly local service. Very happy. The slow puncture was quite fixed as the tyre did not sit well on the alloy, took it back this morning and was sorted no problem and very quickly."
Great service, mostly
"All fine but kept waiting overlong because the oil filter was supplied incorrectly twice before sending the right one third time. Not the fault of Bill Lomas Garage, with whom I am very happy. But they need to have a word with their supplier of spares"
"Brilliant service, my car was picked up and dropped off so I didn’t even need to change any weekend plans"
"I was very pleased with the service I received from start to finish. Professional, helpful and kept updated as to what was happening, having the car picked up and delivered back free of charge was amazing! Thanks Bill & the team!"
"From start to finish was polite professional and got my car fixed in good time"
Best In Class!
"Bill and the lads are always super helpful and welcoming, they are the team that balances the scales from dodgy mechanics to superstars! Thanks for all your work over the years!"
"Booked on my garage and had a phone call to confirm very quickly. Dropped car off and had a call quite soon explaining what work needed to be done to pass the mot. All carried out fine. Good friendly helpful staff. Would definitely recommend."
Very happy with work
"My only criticism was that I had read that an MOT was free when a service was completed? The email confirmation stated that the brake fluid change would be £20, which seemed to bear that out but the actual charge was £48. It was still cheaper than Mini Ocean and was good value so no reason to complain."

How do you choose the best garage for your service?
It’s usually only once a year but it has to be done - so where do you take your car for its service? To the garage round the corner because it’s the nearest, even though you don’t really understand what they tell you? To the place your friend recommends, even though it charges more than most Ivybridge garages? Or to a big, national chain garage - you’d rather support an independent but you feel safer with a big brand? BookMyGarage can give you the confidence to book differently. You’ll find Ivybridge garages near you rated by other car owners, with transparent, immediate details of their prices and services. Booking online takes just one minute, and the garage only sees what they need to know - no unnecessary sharing of your personal details. You and the garage get the full information on the booking, saving you and the garage even more time and hassle.
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 Ivybridge on a regular basis, or you know your car has some issues.
What are common repairs your car may need?
The cambelt (or timing belt) is a very important component that regulates the operation of your car engine. If it breaks, it can cause expensive damage, so when it comes to the cambelt prevention is better than cure. This crucial part of your engine will have an inbuilt lifespan. Varying from make to make, some manufacturers suggest replacement at 40,000 miles, others are said to last as long as 110,000 miles. Check your owner’s manual for your specific car. Some tell-tale symptoms that your cambelt might be wearing out include erratic engine behaviour at around 2000 - 4000 RPMs, or your exhaust suddenly starting to expel more smoke than usual. This is an indicator that your engine is struggling and under duress - time to click on BookMyGarage and find a great Ivybridge garage at the right price.
What do you need from your garage?
This might sound like a question with an obvious answer: you need a garage that can service or repair your car quickly and at a good price. But think again and you may realise there are other factors that affect your choice of garage in Ivybridge. If you need to bring your son or daughter with you when you take your car in, are there toys in the waiting room? If you’re dropping the car off between school and work, can you pick up a cup of coffee while you’re there? Might the garage even collect your car and drop it back at your house after the work is done? You can find answers to all these questions on BookMyGarage.
