Just would like to thank The Garden Village Garage for a quick and speedy response to the problem I had with my car, Service was exceptional,and car came back cleaner than it has ever been, I have never seen my husband that excited about the clean car since he’d had a hole in one on the golf course ????

First class service and highly recommended. I am a bit of a car fanatic and very particular about who i trust to work on my vehicles. It was only after looking through the countless positive reviews that i made the decision to book my Jaguar in for a radiator replacement at the Garden Village Garage. From the initial telephone conversation with 'Mathew' the owner up to the point of collection, the service provided was by far the best i have experienced and far superior to any Main Dealer i have dealt with in the past. Through the course of the work i was updated regularly by both phone and video updates and when collected my vehicle was all cleaned and ready to go. Very reassuring to have now found a garage i can trust with any future work. The Garden Village Garage

Very happy with the MOT, they were able to fit me in for an MOT at short notice after stratstone cancelled my appointment. The MOT was carried out properly and great email updates letting me know the progress. Car was washed in time for me to collect the car at the end of the day."

I recently had an engine light on and had been having the tracking done on the car every couple of months. I found the garden village garage online and was amazed how efficient they were within an hour they picked up my car and kept me updated through the whole process. The car was brought back earlier than expected and it was also fantastically clean- even better then when it goes to get a valet. I would recommend this garage to anyone the customer service was fantastic especially Matthew. Thankyou garden village garden

After my car battery died last week, The Garden Village Garage collected it, fixed the problem and cleaned it inside and out, then delivered it back to me. Very impressed with their service, I highly recommend them ????????

I hadn't driven my car (beetle cabriolet) for 6 months, it was subsequently stuck on my drive. Matthew and his team not only made the car mobile and gave it an MOT but they returned it to me in the loved condition it had originally been. Through a transparent process of being sent videos for each stage of the MOT and repairs, I felt confident about the high quality and cost effective work that was being completed. Thanks.

The Garden Village Garage in Caerphilly has just removed the existing 13-Pin electrical socket from my BMW X3 and installed a 13-Pin Socket with a dedicated wiring kit. I had a full tow bar kit installed by another company in June and had experienced continual problems with the cars electrical systems and the quality of the wiring was atrocious. The installation carried out by Mathew and his team was excellent and everything on the car is working satisfactorily. The level of service provided was exceptional from the initial call to Mathew when I explained my problem, the follow up call from the Technician Mark, the video showing the progress of the installation to finally collecting a very clean car. A huge thanks to Mathew for taking on the job in the first place and a huge thanks to Mark for a very neat and high quality installation. I would have no problem recommending this garage to anybody.

Fantastic service today on a Sunday too. Had a flat tyre and even though this garage was open but only for admin they kindly managed to get their recovery truck out to me to collect my car and drop it off to a competitor to have my tyre replaced.extremely friendly and caring and proving that it costs nothing to be kind! Life savers. Can’t recommend enough!

After being recommended to matthew and his garage by a mechanic from ford for over 40 years as they could not fit me in with my transit at such short notice, had promised me that matthew would "take good care of me and my vehicle, as he was a good bloke", was nothing short of the truth, after the 1st phonecall on monday afternoon collected my transit first thing the following morning, only then to be delivered AND cleaned the wednesday afternoon with all work completed as i need the van for my job, being a self employed tradesman is the only way i can make a living, after the prevoius 2 mechanic's i've dealt with was feeling a bit doubtful to say the least from the very poor work that had been carried out, after explaining my doubts to matthew he couldn't reassure me enough that i was in capable hand's, not only did he send a video of his finding's and explained what work was needed to repair my vehicle, he then called me the following morning as a courtesy call to see if i was happy and if i was not to only let him know and he would be more than happy to put right, i can honestly say that there are no problems with what matthew and his mechanics have done and that i cannot recommend the quality service i received from matthew and his very capable mechanics highly enough. I will be returning with my car as soon as it's due for a service as well as my transit. Thankyou Steven edwards

Never thought that having your car serviced and having an MOT done could be classified as a fun activity, but with the Garden Village Garage it was! Outstanding service from start to finish -Heather and Matthew are real characters, a great team, who made the whole process so easy. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to get a boring job out of the way with no hassle and cheerful service.

This garage saved my life today! (Ok, but dramatic but sooooo helpful) spoke to a lovely and friendly chap called Matthew. He is really kind and got one of his chaps to recover my vehicle due to a flat tyre. Sunday too! Was super speedy and cause it’s Sunday their garage isn’t open for work so even dropped me and my car off to a competitors to get my tyre replaced. V caring and kind and helpful. Would defo use again and can’t recommend enough. Thank you Matthew and co. ? life savers!

I have dealt with The Garden Village Garage for many years. At each visit my car is collected and returned washed, cleaned and hoovered. The levels of communication via video, text and telephone let me understand what, when and why any essential parts need to be replaced. A totally transparent, easy to use service that makes me feel assured that my car is in the right hands. Well done!

Took my car here on big sisters recommendation to sort out inverted parking sensors and rear near side window. Very happy with service received, especially with car cleaned and valeted which I didn't ask for but all part of the service that you receive. Family atmosphere and owner a complete and utter Laurel and Hardy fan which goes a long way with me. Matthew stay as you are and you'll go far.

A big thank you to The Garden Village Garage. They give such great service and they even opened on a Saturday to fix my car so I could drive back to London. The before and after videos of the work needing done are a great touch!

Many thanks to Matthew & the team for coming to my rescue yesterday & sorting a serious break problem effectively. Good communication - from the initial call to the the prompt collection of the car to the details of the issue & my options, they kept me informed & gave me an idea of cost - always important when faced with an unexpected expense.

I had a tow bar fitted this week and couldn't quite believe the customer service I received. Nothing was too much trouble, they actually seemed quite put out when I drove down and didn't take them up on their pick up and drop off service which is really nice. I for one will be using them from now on and also pointing family and friends in their direction. Modern, technical service with old fashioned values and curtesy. Just try it, you wont be disappointed. A cut above the rest!! The Garden Village Garage

The service was brilliant. Went in for an MOT and the price was very reasonable plus the staff were very friendly. Mary the receptionist was lovely to talk to and Matthew was very honest and good with communication. To top it all the car was cleaned both inside and out! Lovely job.

Thanks Matthew for sorting out my MOT at short notice. Being marooned in Pantmawr it was fantastic to have my car collected, MOT'd, valeted and returned. I'd have had no end of hassle getting it to the Mazda garage and would have had to arrange lifts each way through all the traffic; plus they wouldn't have cleaned it. Great job - I would definitely recommend !!! The Garden Village Garage

Visited the garage to seek advice on a problem we had with a detachable tow bar. The bar was supplied by Witter and not the garage and the help offered by Mathew and staff was first class and helped us resolve the problem and even offered to lend us a bar if our holiday was threatened. Well done.
