“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!”
“Forgot my appointment to begin with. Communication was good when I needed a part for mot, good at communicating when finished. Would have preferred if they put how much the labour was and the part was as i know the part isn't pricey but the cost seemed to be a tad steep, but maybe labour is a bit more expensive than what I used to pay at other garages”
