"Completely happy from start to finish"
No confirm. of booking
"First time use of this website. Booked MOT and service on a Thursday via the website to take place on the following Tuesday morning. Didn't get any phone call from the garage until 12pm on the Tuesday (i.e. after the booked appointment). Because this garage hadn't called me on Friday or Saturday I arranged with an another garage instead (but not via the website) and had the work done on the Monday. The website implies that the garage will ring you to confirm the appointment and not to rely just on the website booking system but this garage seemed to be relying on the website as communication to customers. All very confusing. Will just book garage direct next time."
"I was advised that the service was complete and there was extra work that was needed. No work was carried out till an full explanation and pricing of work before anything was done. There was no bullying into the work being done like at some other garages you find. Very friendly manager who QC'ed the extra work before being rung to be told it was completed."
"Staff very helpful, work clearly done in a timely and competent manner"
"I booked at short notice after another provider falling through and was contacted almost immediately to organise a time first thing the next day. Left my car with the guys and was all sorted swiftly and with no fuss. Came highly recommended, evidently for good reason. No issues and will definitely use again."
"From reception to collecting the car a pain free experience of real quality, no repairs necessary hence 1 score"
"When I arrived, the garage didn’t have a record of my booking but instead of turning me away the colleague made some calls and managed to fit me in. Very professional."
"Great customer service and very friendly staff. They informed me of a puncture in one of my tyres and offered to repair it for me. Would definitely return !! :)"
"They fit me in at late notice and were very friendly and professional. He was done in the time he said he would be and it was all round a really great experience. A little hard to find so maybe the addition of a sign in the car park would be a good idea."
A car radiator disperses heat away from the main engine block. A car engine works by burning fuel (whether petrol or diesel), and this generates a considerable amount of heat. In addition, a car engine has many moving parts; this movement creates friction, which in turn adds to the heat.
Because a car engine must remain not too hot in order to avoid overheating and seizure, when it reaches a certain temperature the thermostat opens to allow the flow of coolant and water around the engine and back to the radiator, where it loses heat to the cooler surrounding air. The front grill of the car allows outside air to blow over the radiator. If the radiator gets too hot, for example on a very hot day, or when the car is stationary, a fan behind the radiator starts, helping to blow air over it.
The most common reason for needing a car radiator repair is a leak. There are many seals, gaskets and hoses in the cooling system that can deteriorate or get a hole in them. Furthermore, every radiator needs to be properly maintained and the coolant must be kept topped up. Your garage should provide coolant changes at the same time as your annual service.
It’s also a good idea to check your car’s coolant level regularly. If it seems to be dropping a lot, then you may have a leak in the cooling system.
Located around the shores of the River Avon and the Severn Estuary, Bristol is a culturally diverse, socially abuzz, alternative and independent city. Small wonder that in 2014 The Times named it the best city in the UK to live. It’s also one of the sunniest.
Bristol is famous for Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge, which is well worth a visit if you don’t happen to drive across it on your way into the city. There is a small toll on this Grade I listed structure which forms part of the B3129. But if you suffer from vertigo don’t look down, the deep drop to the River Avon and Gorge is spectacular and changes with the tide.
