"collected, and returned the car, completed a full service an the MOT. Called with advisories asking if work wanted to be done and also fixed the few issues at a minimal price to pass the MOT. Will definitely use again"
Great value for money
"Free pick up and drop service, good information on the work to do on the car and very competitive cost."
"Very happy,good quality of service , well done"
"It wasn’t bad but it could have been better, they are not very friendly at the garage, The nearside dimlight was not working and one of the wiper was a bit worn off. & he classified these two as major fault in the car, anyhow I ask him how much he would charge me to change the light, & he goes to me “ I have no idea” as I have never change these kind of lights previously, I think they are not very experienced & finally when I went for my re testing, I waited and when he got back, I asked him, has the car passed the MOT? He goes to me I think so, & then he gave me this funny look and said the car “ the car has a bit of mileage on it “ i felt uncomfortable with those people, they are not very good with customer service and all! But the price £35 is excellent, book my garage was very good & very helpful! I will use book my garage again but may be not the same MOT centre."
"I was very happy, in addition to keeping me informed at all times they adapted the undertray as it was not original equipment so didn't fit exactly. I came back here for the interim service because I was so impressed with the MOT and the fact that Bryan was the first person, out of four garages, that was able to find a noise that had been bothering me for several months."
Great efficient service

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 in the Thames Valley to the west of London, Reading in Berkshire is not too well-known as one of Britain’s must-visit towns. However, once you get there, you’ll discover a surprising amount of things to see and do. It is sometimes described as being on London’s commuter belt but the influx of daily traffic outweighs the outflow due to the large number of tech companies and international businesses which have made Reading their home.
