Great customer service. I need some follow up work to be carried out this week too but it has all been explained to me fully and I know what cost to incur.

After an mot in march, i booked the car in for a full service.on the day i decided to include some additional work based upon " watch or repair adviseraries" on the mot. bob coates motors took the request in their stride, considering there were a lot of cars waiting on the forecourt. they called back to confirm the work(discs and pads) could be included if they kept the car overnight. pleased with the outcome and feel prepared for whatever covid restrictions arise in the coming year..
