“I’m always on the go, so booking my MOT on my phone was really useful.
I compared garages, picked the best one for me and even saved money, all whilst waiting for my morning coffee!”
“I brought my car for full service. However in the bill only could see the oil and filters changed. The air con doesn't work but they didn't realise that, so not sure what they checked. The car was dirty inside.”
“Booked my full service with MIG. I had to go there 3 times to finally get my service book stamped. I don't even know if they done all checks as I still did not get my service report, although I requested it multiple times. Very poor communication as I said that I am interested in additional services, but no one bothered to call me with info what will be the price for them, they just done them and charged it at the end.”
