Great Customer Service
"Unfortunately there was an equipment failure which prevented the MOT from being carried out on the booked date. The personal customer service I received was excellent, despite the situation; which was clearly catastrophic for the garage. I was seriously impressed with with the attitude and approach, which was to do everything possible to keep me updated, informed and offer me solutions."
Good, courteous service.
"All work requested completed to a high standard, at a good price."
"Quick and very helpful service will go back again"
Fabba dabba doo!
"Super duper service!"
Friendly and Helpful
"No repairs required, very helpful to a mum who may have needed car back in time for school run. Will use again"
"Quick service. Friendly and efficient."
"Recently moved to area, so first time using Brook Road Garage, but not disappointed! Highly recommend and I won’t be going anywhere else from now on. I needed quite a bit of work doing and Pete was very good at explaining it all to me and prioritised the urgent items for me to help spread the cost. There was no pressure and all repairs were quoted fully inclusive and were very reasonable. Service was excellent, work completed quickly and when I collected the car it had also been fully valeted! Fantastic service."
"Picked up my car as promised, kept me well informed, and even cleaned the car before bringing it back to my home"
"Great service plus they cleaned outside and inside, unexpected bonus."
Good local garage
"Serviced and MOT completed quickly and good value. Complimentary vac and wash too."
"Felt totally confident in what they were doing. I did have the full service so they checked EVERYTHING. They even washed and cleaned my car - bonus! Wonderful friendly team. Won't hesitate to use again."
"Work undertaken as promised and further issues identified but pragmatic advice provided about urgency or otherwise of the highlighted work and no hard sell. Would certainly return and recommend."

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 Wimborne 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 Wimborne 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 Wimborne and generate a high annual mileage, consider 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 Wimborne 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 Wimborne 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.
How can you save money (and the environment) while you drive?
As every garage owner will tell you, there are some tried and tested ways to cut down on your petrol costs (and consumption) while you’re out and about in Wimborne or beyond. One is to shut your windows. If you can hear that wind noise in your car it’s costing you more to drive. This is because the car becomes less aerodynamic and has to work harder to motor along. Removing a roof rack will improve your fuel efficiency for the same reason. Another useful tip is to combine short trips into one; each time you drive after your car has been parked for a while the engine will be cold and need to use a lot more fuel for the first 5 miles or so. If you do one trip from school drop-off to supermarket to office you’ll use far less fuel than if you do all those trips individually.
