"We used the garage for service and MOT as they had previously done work on a motorhome we had on behalf of another garage and been very efficient. We normally have mot done at the Council depot ad they don’t have a vested interest in getting work however we were impressed that the bill was cheaper than the online quote. The only issue was the online booking we did not work that well as when I arrived the guy said it was only booked in for a mot. However all the work was completed at a cheaper rate than the online quote so can’t complain."
"We are grateful for Darren’s help. We were down in Paignton for a short break when we had a problem with the car. As it happened on a bank holiday Easter Monday, I booked the service for Tuesday. I was so surprised to get a confirmation few minutes later and pleased at the same time knowing car will be repaired before we head back home. Communication was superb. Cost of service was fair. Highly recommended!"
"Sometimes going to a garage alone as a female can be intimidating but I was made to feel very welcome, & valued and Darren was very friendly and helpful! Great value for money. Will definitely return :-)"
"Very happy with work, done to a good standard"
"I took my car in for the allocated time and in half an hour, I got my car back. The staff were friendly and knew what they were doing."
"Very friendly, helpful and good price, would highly recommend"
"Friendly helpful, reasonably priced and transparent about any work they needed to do"
MOT and Repairs
"My car was first brought here by the RAC after a breakdown caused by my previous garage putting too much oil in my car. The garage is recommended by the AA and the RAC and the forecourt is always littered with Caterfood vans and South Devon College minibuses which speaks volumes about their reputation. The staff are friendly and the receptionist is always very kind and helpful to my young children and I. I find their hourly rate a little on the steep side but my previous cheaper garage nearly killed my car so I guess you get what you pay for. All in all they get the thumbs up from me."
"Great service and communication"

What do you think about when choosing a garage for your service?
It’s often the case that we stick with what we know when it comes to car servicing. Proximity to home, familiarity with the staff and simple force of habit all play a major part when we choose a garage. But what if you could instantly compare Paignton garages’ prices, speed and quality of service, and customer feedback - and book online at the same time? BookMyGarage does all this for you in a matter of moments, free of charge, leaving you to get on with the rest of your day.
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 Paignton and generate a high annual mileage, consider an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles).
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 Paignton 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 Paignton. 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.
