" very good"
Very good customer service
"Very happy with service. Was kept informed through out the day. No excessive charges or none essential work carried out. Even washed & vac'd the car. Will use again A++++++++++++++++++++"
"Extremely happy with the service given by the guys at Chapmans, very reasonably priced, quick and informative. It was the first time I'd been there and it was a very good experience and I will be going there for future repairs, services and MOT's."
knowledgeable & honest
"Didn’t even charge me as car issue was unresolveable but did a full breakdown- good lads, owe them a drink"
"Great value, friendly helpful staff. Will use again."
Tried and trusted
"I have used this garage for many years and have always found them helpful and friendly. The work has always been first class and good value for money. I always trust their advice."
Superb service as usual
"Although I only had an MOT on this occasion the staff kindly pumped up all my tyres that were somewhat low. This may be only a small thing but they didn’t need to do it. They always go the extra mile to please. This is my favourite garage by far."
"Well done D&G. Great service on collect and delivery. MOT check is really fast and reasonable!!"
Friendly and honest
"Put my '96 Volvo 850 in for its MOT and while I knew there would be some repairs to get it roadworthy the final bill was not something I could justify for an old banger. I wasn't pressured to take the work (which has been my experience in other places) and they were really friendly and approachable. Would take my next car there!"
Great value for money
"No repairs required so cannot comment on that but service and MOT performed efficiently."
Power Assisted Steering, or ‘PAS’ as it is also known, is a mechanism that helps you to steer your car. In most vehicles, the PAS relies on a hydraulic system to aid turning the vehicle's wheels. If you have ever driven a car with no Power Steering you will have most certainly noticed the difference between having PAS and not. Power Steering used to be a luxury in certain vehicles, but nowadays it is almost standard in every type of vehicle.
There are two types of power steering: rack-and-pinion and the recirculating ball. Rack-and-pinion is the most common system. Although not as widespread, the recirculating ball system is still in use, mainly on vans and trucks.
In both systems, two high-pressure hoses connect the steering rack to both sides of the centre seal. One hose directs high pressure hydraulic fluid from the power steering pump to the steering mechanism, while the other allows fluid to flow back to the pump. When the steering wheel is turned left or right, the steering mechanism allows the hydraulic fluid to pass to that side of the rack. That pressure assists the vehicle's steering power by pushing the seal and rack in one direction or the other.
What do you need from your garage?
We all have different needs, and choosing a garage is no different. For some of us, it’s the quality of the overall service which matters most; not just the work that’s done under the bonnet, but the human interaction that comes with it. BookMyGarage allows you to compare Bodmin garages on everything from their waiting room refreshments or whether having your toddler in tow is going to be a problem, to how clearly the staff can explain the work your car requires.
