Great Service as always!
"Friendly and welcoming staff, quick and efficient job. Fantastic service as always, have been going to this garage for 3 years and as a young female driver, I have always been treated with upmost respect. I am always apprehensive that people may take advantage as I am fairly naive when it comes to car knowledge, however the staff at this garage are fantastic and will happily explain things without taking advantage or making me feel stupid- would highly recommend and will continue to use this garage!"
"Very happy with the job done, kept me informed and even said they would pick up/drop off my car if I should ever need them to when having work done!"
Great service and MOT
"Friendly and informative staff! Have used them twice for service and MOT and will continue for the foreseeable future!"
"Great value, I’d recommend to anyone , they even sorted my screen wash jets without asking!"
Quality service & garage
"I was very happy with the services I received. Replacing brakes can be expensive work. While I had to spend a lot to get my car fixed, it wasn't as much as some of the horror stories I heard online about other garages. Also I know they used high quality parts and my car is running much more smoothly now. They kept me informed about what work would be needed throughout the day. Only negative was that I was supposed to get my MOT half price (for £19) because I was getting it with a full service, but when I got home and looked at my bill, I had been charged full price (£39). Overall quality service, good garage, would recommend."
"very friendly and work completed in good time with no unexpected problems"

You can compare labour rates too, helpful if you’re thinking of additional car repairs you might need.

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 Shipley 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 Shipley 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?
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 Shipley 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?
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 Shipley. 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 Shipley garages with BookMyGarage.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Shipley or further afield, think about road user etiquette. Showing respect for other road users makes driving more pleasant for you and safer for everyone. For example, if you have to make a last minute change of lane, make your request to change clear to the driver who will need to let you in - and signal your thanks if they do. Be ready to abandon the change of lane if they won’t play ball - your safety (and that of other drivers and pedestrians) is more important than getting to your destination in the shortest time possible. When the position is reversed and a driver asks your permission to change lanes, allow them to as long as it is safe. If you get frustrated, avoid using your horn - it won’t improve matters and might make them considerably worse.
