"collected, and returned the car, completed a full service an the MOT. Called with advisories asking if work wanted to be done and also fixed the few issues at a minimal price to pass the MOT. Will definitely use again"
Great value for money
"Free pick up and drop service, good information on the work to do on the car and very competitive cost."
"Very happy,good quality of service , well done"
"It wasn’t bad but it could have been better, they are not very friendly at the garage, The nearside dimlight was not working and one of the wiper was a bit worn off. & he classified these two as major fault in the car, anyhow I ask him how much he would charge me to change the light, & he goes to me “ I have no idea” as I have never change these kind of lights previously, I think they are not very experienced & finally when I went for my re testing, I waited and when he got back, I asked him, has the car passed the MOT? He goes to me I think so, & then he gave me this funny look and said the car “ the car has a bit of mileage on it “ i felt uncomfortable with those people, they are not very good with customer service and all! But the price £35 is excellent, book my garage was very good & very helpful! I will use book my garage again but may be not the same MOT centre."
"I was very happy, in addition to keeping me informed at all times they adapted the undertray as it was not original equipment so didn't fit exactly. I came back here for the interim service because I was so impressed with the MOT and the fact that Bryan was the first person, out of four garages, that was able to find a noise that had been bothering me for several months."
Great efficient service

Coolant is a specially-formulated chemical liquid, commonly known as antifreeze, that circulates through a car’s engine. It removes excess heat from a car’s engine by passing it through the car’s radiator. Furthermore, the solution contains inhibitors that protect the metal, plastic and rubber in the cooling system from corrosion. And, as the name antifreeze suggests, it also doesn’t freeze up in bitterly cold conditions, so it plays an important role in a car all year long.
Coolant levels should be checked frequently, at least every 3-6 months. Low coolant can cause overheating, which would have serious implications for other components on the car. Even though coolant can leak and evaporate over time, in many cars it often looks as though the coolant never needs changing because its level seems to stay the same. However, draining and flushing the coolant system, including the radiator, at least once a year is important. Flushing pushes out all the old coolant, debris from corrosion and scale. If left in the engine, it may become clogged up, potentially causing extensive damage.
Before a mechanic drains the cooling system, he might add coolant cleaner to the coolant and then start the engine, depending on what the manufacturer specifies. After the car has run for a while, he would turn it off and drain it. He would then add water to flush it and drain it again, twice, before finally putting in the fresh coolant.
Located in the Thames Valley to the west of London, Reading in Berkshire is not too well-known as one of Britain’s must-visit towns. However, once you get there, you’ll discover a surprising amount of things to see and do. It is sometimes described as being on London’s commuter belt but the influx of daily traffic outweighs the outflow due to the large number of tech companies and international businesses which have made Reading their home.
