Dont book on here
"They are great but go to them direct dont book through book my garage as they wont actually get the booking. I called them up on the day of my MOT and they didnt have any knowlage of my booking as they arent connectes with this website but they managed to fit me in which was great."
"They were very helpful in rebooking my MOT for the next day when I forgot to show up for my original appointment. MOT was quick and the waiting area was comfortable."
"Impressed by my first experience of Rentech. The MOT in the morning found 2 broken rear suspension springs and a defective front trailing arm, and they'd fixed the whole lot by close of play."
"2 MOTs/services with this garage and it's all straight forward and they don't advise you to spend lots of money with them with minor things unless it's necessary."
Great customer service
"I put my car into John Mcinnes for an MOT. Unfortunately an issue with my bonnet lock reared it’s head and the MOT couldn’t be completed. After attempting to get in myself, I returned it to the garage where they got in and carried out the MOT, without charging for the extra time spent trying to get around this particular issue. I was kept well informed of the situation and the staff were more than helpful. Would highly recommend."
"Helpful, reliable great customer service... first time used now will go back for any motor problems.. very happy"
"Very happy with the service and kept me informed at all times."
"booked in at 9.00 , all done in 45 mins"
MOT and Service
"A reliable quick service that was smooth from booking to completion"
It’s a fact of life that cars, like all machines, need care, attention, and repairs from time to time.

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 Penrith 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 Penrith 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.
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 Penrith 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 car problems to look out for?
A common car problem which is worth taking action on fast is a faulty alternator. The alternator is a simple but key part in your car - as well as powering your headlights it gives your battery the power it needs to start the car, so it’s pretty important. There are a few signs to look out for if your alternator is starting to fail, from dimmed headlights when you’re driving around Penrith at night or a light appearing on the dashboard, to a growling sound or unusual smell coming from the engine. If you spot any of these, find a Penrith garage on BookMyGarage and get your car checked out. Prices for a replacement alternator can vary a lot depending on the make and model of your car, but are generally around £200-£300.
What do you need from your garage?
You may live within walking distance of a garage which offers most of the services you need. However, by sticking with the nearest garage in Penrith you could be missing out on a better deal. What if a garage with a collection / drop off service or courtesy car could do the same job at a good price, without the inconvenience of losing your car for the duration of the repair? BookMyGarage allows you to search for local garages which offer this facility, and compare their prices, all in one session.
