Lady minute service
"Needed to get the car in quick before a big road trip and they were able to get me in the next day. This is the second time I've used the garage and I've been very happy with the service both times."

"Great value and great service"

"happy with the service and quality"
"Friendly, honest, helpful. First time I have serviced my car outside of main dealer and I was nervous! MTS were great, will definitely be back for my MOT and future services for my Nissan 370Z"
Very good service
"Used this garage as very conveniently on the same industrial estate as my job but I would happily use them again anyway even if I moved jobs."
"I have used many garages over the years for servicing and MOT - I spotted this garage online and received a quotation and confirmation of my booking. The price quoted was amazing I admit I was a little dubious. However on arrival I was met by Manda who talked me through the schedule and all the work that would be carried out. I was not disappointed with the outcome and the final bill was less than the original quote. I will be booking again next year for the MOT and service thank you Michael Doherty"
"Really great service, very helpful and friendly throughout."
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.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Poole or further afield, think about road user etiquette. Showing respect for other road users makes driving more pleasant for you and safer for everyone. For example, if you have to make a last minute change of lane, make your request to change clear to the driver who will need to let you in - and signal your thanks if they do. Be ready to abandon the change of lane if they won’t play ball - your safety (and that of other drivers and pedestrians) is more important than getting to your destination in the shortest time possible. When the position is reversed and a driver asks your permission to change lanes, allow them to as long as it is safe. If you get frustrated, avoid using your horn - it won’t improve matters and might make them considerably worse.
