I visited MacRaes garage after experiencing difficulty putting air into one of my tyres at another near bye petrol station. This was a minor problem but as my wife and I were on holiday it was necessary to rectify for us to continue our journey in safety. I explained the problem to a gentleman at the service desk who asked one of the mechanics called John to attend. John rectified the problem quickly and we were able to continue our journey. All attempts to pay for the service was politely declined. This was a first class display of old fashioned service, rarely found nowadays, a simple problem yes, but the main point is that the garage was able to respond to the needs of the everyday motorist in a courteous and efficient manner and leaving myself to feel a valued customer....even though they wouldn't let me pay for their services....Thank you John and your team at MacRaes for fixing a minor problem but allowing us to continue our holiday with peace of mind.
