Excellent service from my local garage .Kept me up to date when MOT due and asked when I wanted it carried out. Great service.

5 star rating

Really pleased with the garage. I've travelled almost 50 miles to Castle Douglas as garages in my area either couldn't accommodate me or didn't have a software to update a digital service history. No gimmicks service, friendly staff, all questions answered and half a price for what the main dealer has quoted.

Really good service, took the car in at short notice and fixed a few items on time and kept me informed of the costs. Really appreciate getting the car back on time as I live miles away and getting a lift is hard. Thanks, i'll keep using them.
