Staff very knowledgeable in the older car. Very accommodating after removing the rear springs. They stored the car in the garage whilst the springs were sent to be refurbished. Collected the springs when they were ready. ( I was on holiday). Refitted the springs and kept the vehicle safe until I returned and was able to collect it. Great service and good job done.
