I have received excellent help and service from AJK Thompson over the years, both in breakdown recovery and in servicing my two vehicles. I have a VW campervan as well as my VW Tiguan automatic. I am very happy with their competence and efficiency and reasonable rates for work done.

Was away on holiday when I was struck by car troubles. First garage I went to did not have mechanics but recommended Thompsons of Seahouses. Dropped the car off and despite having a full book the squeezed me in and I was back on the road a few hours later. They went above and beyond and I thank them so much for being helpful in my hour of need.

We were on holiday & I noticed a rear tyre well had damage. Took IV in - a lovely bloke called chris assessed IV , ordered a tyre and arranged for IV sorting the following day. Everything went smoothly. At first he thought we might get away without a new tyre but a closer look revealed the chords were visible - Great service reasonable cost.
