"This is not my local garage, but it is the one I to which I return time and again over the last seventeen years. They have looked after four of my cars and have always given me great service. They will always keep you informed and break down costs, offering options and then completing the work to a high standard. The staff are friendly and helpful and they are one of the few businesses which I would recommend."
"Happy with the service received."
"I need my car back by a certain time, and it was clear they wanted to help as much as possible. Car drove beautifully afterwards."
"Used for many years now but Took my cat in for a service and discovered that both my front shock absorbers had broken. This was late afternoon on the Thursday before Christmas and they were due to close at 1pm on the Friday. They managed to squeeze my car in and order the part and my car was ready by the time they closed on the Friday. I do a lot of driving so would have been very hard between christmas and new year not being able to drive and get to work. 100% brilliant customer service, knowledge and care. Wouldn't use any other garage and would recommend to everyone"

"MOT completed satisfactorily and good advice given re: new tyres!"
"Always use five square. Great service"

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 Shaftesbury 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.
What type of car service do you need?
Did you know that there are 3 main types of car service? The annual service is called a Full Service. It includes all the basic checks, maintenance and any essential work. It should also tell you about any signs of wear and tear. If you’re often travelling beyond Shaftesbury and clock up more than 12,000 miles in a year, consider booking your Full Service before the 12 months are up. It’s a good idea to get a Major Service every couple of years (or 24,000 miles); this is a really thorough check of your vehicle that includes all essential maintenance as well as parts that should be replaced every 24 months. The third of the 3 main services is the Interim Service. Carried out every 6 months (or 6,000 miles), it is recommended if you regularly cover long distances, or if you know your car has problems.
What are common repairs your car may need?
One of the most common and critical car problems is a slipping clutch. How long a clutch lasts varies depending on the age and model of your car, the conditions you drive in, and the way you drive so the most important thing is to know how to spot a clutch problem when you’re out driving in and around Shaftesbury. You might find that the revs (RPMs) suddenly shoot up but the road speed doesn’t increase. Acceleration may not be as effective as it once was. This will be more obvious in a manual car than in an automatic as the clutch usually slips during a gear change. Expect to pay in the region of £400 to have your clutch replaced but make sure you get the best service and price for you by checking Shaftesbury garages with BookMyGarage.
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 Shaftesbury. 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.
