I received the very best customer care at Eltham Test Centre with a complicated issue regarding a claim with my warranty company and a diagnosis that was not straightforward. Steve went above and beyond to help resolve the issue. He was incredibly patient, taking phone calls and emails from me, while I was very stressed. I would not hesitate to recommend the centre. Good job, good prices and honest diagnosis and repair
