Keith and his colleagues have serviced my cars for some 40 years and have kept me on the road through thick and thin. The care they have shown has always been exemplary and I'm very grateful that they will always come to my rescue when I have a problem as well as remind me when routine work is due. Douglas Compton has become a very busy business over the past few years yet still Jo and Alan on the front line find time to welcome me and my elderly vehicle with kindness, courtesy and efficiency.
