Woke up to a VERY flat tyre on my little fiat panda. Chris at AJK Thompson was immediately on the case. He advised me that despite a very large “foreign object” embedded in the tyre, they could safely repair it. He took the time to show me how the repair device would safely fix the problem. However I actually opted for a new tyre on this occasion - reasonably priced and in stock. All done and dusted in lightning speed. Many Thanks!

I use AJK Thompson for all my car needs - mot’s, servicing, tyres and general maintenance. They are always helpful, efficient and professional. I would 100% recommend them. When my truck battery recently “died” they quickly got me going again and provided me with a very reasonably priced, good quality new one - with a 3 year warranty! Feel very lucky to have such a trustworthy garage locally. I would never hesitate to contact them with any mechanical problem. They are a great team with excellent skills and genuine customer care - rare to find these days. Sincere Thanks as always.
