This is how all garages should be... Awesome service from start to finish, collected the car from work, text me upon arrival in the garage and sent 2 video clips showing me the work they were doing. Delivered the car back immaculately clean and Matthew was a pleasure to deal with. I will no longer put up with slow performance and high costs from the dealerships - Garden Village is quick, efficient and trustworthy.

Very pleased with the service I received from Matthew and his team, who went above and beyond to help me. I was dreading having to wait ages to be fitted in with an appointment but they had my car in, sorted and back to me the following day! I was kept well informed throughout the entire process, and I found the videos I was sent of the problem particularly helpful - also, they were easy to get in touch with when needed! I will definitely be coming back here for any car related issues I have in the future, and would highly recommend them to friends and family as well. Very happy and grateful, thanks again!

This is the way to get your MOT sorted- which always a pain in the backside- .Get someone to pick up your vehicle and then they deliver it back with a "PASS" certificate already uploaded on your computer. And you pay after the job is completed. ... and very professional and friendly service -oh and they cleaned my car inside and out - thanks guys!

Fast, efficient and friendly service. I only called to arrange a service last night; my car was collected within an hour from my home, serviced this morning and delivered back home (cleaned inside and out) less than 24 hours later. A video emailed of the work was also helpful. Reasonable pricing and transparent service. I’ll be back. Thanks

The garage was recommended to me by my mum who also used them recently for the first time. She too was recommended and I can see why! They collected my car for Mot test (which made getting to work really easy on the day). It passed with a new windscreen wiper (which I knew was rubbish) and a minor adjustment to the headlights. It was returned, washed and cleaned inside and out. Being a younger driver and not knowing too much about cars I felt they were easy to use and very efficient.

My first time using this company, being relatively new to the area. From start to finish the team were friendly,professional and courteous. Everything was explained and discussed with prices given before any work was carried out, and the team ensured I was satisfied. The car was returned in a fabulous condition too, this team take pride in their work

I found and decided to instruct this garage using an online google search. I was a little sceptical about the review level, most of which were at a 5 star level. Sadly, I've just received my car back following an issue with the AC system and too must score them 5 stars. The fault was identified and explained to me in an easy to understand video which they sent to my phone. The car was cleaned inside and out and returned to my office where it was collected from with 5 hours. The total was £72 and I must have saved at least two hours of my time. A very modern way to trade..well done.

Having used the garage from a girlfriends recommendation I was delighted with the service. Such professionalism, detailed explanation and courtesy afforded to me. The car was picked up on time and was returned looking as good as new. I was able to transfer funds easily on line. A modern, easy to use service with no fuss….great!

A call-out here for Matthew and his team at Garden Village Garage, Rhiwbina & Caerphilly. Thank you for the weekend out-of-hours support, tracing and fixing the fuel leak on my Passat. Matthew sent a video of the fault to ensure I was satisfied before commencing the work, and then delivered the car to my door once resolved. I was certainly in a pickle late on the Saturday when the leak 1st occurred. My expectations were hugely exceeded – credit where credit is due, this is simply a wonderful company.

Just to say a very big thank you to Matthew and staff today for the A* service received. I have to add that the entire process, (from the initial online booking, collection of vehicle from home, carrying out of both service & Mot ( which also involved some new parts and extra work), communication throughout the day, including exceptional video footage showing defect, to delivery back home at the end of the day) was flawless. In all honesty, this process has never been so 'effortless' and convenient. ( said in best Terminator voice)... " I'll be back" !

Communication was first class from the moment service was booked right up to after the job was done, my car was picked up and returned even though I lived 30 miles away from the garage. I was kept informed through the process and was also sent a video of the work being carried out. Will definitely use again and wouldn't hesitate to reccomend

We just bought a lovely little car from here, service was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Matt sent us a brilliant video of the car as we live far away and we found it exactly as described. We are really happy with the purchase and would recommend The Garden Village to anyone

To Mathew and technicians of rhiwbina garage. Just to say thank you for your service. You gave my Ford focus a interim service this morning and text me a video report. As it was I only needed a new extra item in the service it was a air filter. I know it's only a small thing that Ford should have replaced in a annual service but they overlooked it. Anyway thanks for your immediate and professional attention you have given me and I expect I will be booking in my car next in December for its annual service. I'm hoping to receive as discussed a years worth of breakdown cover. After all that's the only reason I chose FORDTHORNE in the first place. Obviously you have proved you can surpass their service. Also thank you for giving my car a clean. It all adds up to customer satisfaction I think. And another plus is the collection and pick up service too. Till December have a great rest of the summer. Regards. Nicholas Kendrick.

Would highly recommend The Garden Village Garage to everyone. Brought a really lovely first car from Matthew. Extremely happy with the car itself and the exceptional level of service I received. Helpful in every way. Allowed us to fully test drive the car, whilst giving us a delightful tour of the beautiful area. Was completely transparent, providing a full service history of the car, with all MOT certificates and manuals. Provided a comprehensive service and MOT prior to collection of the car. Went above and beyond, giving regular updates and offering ongoing care. Thank you so much, can't wait to start driving!

Exceptional customer service and a job very well done. They collected and returned my car for its service, and they provided a free car wash and valet. Additionally, they kept me up to date with a video message and through email. Will definitely go back and recommend to everyone. Harriet

Just would like to thank The Garden Village Garage for a quick and speedy response to the problem I had with my car, Service was exceptional,and car came back cleaner than it has ever been, I have never seen my husband that excited about the clean car since he’d had a hole in one on the golf course ????

First class service and highly recommended. I am a bit of a car fanatic and very particular about who i trust to work on my vehicles. It was only after looking through the countless positive reviews that i made the decision to book my Jaguar in for a radiator replacement at the Garden Village Garage. From the initial telephone conversation with 'Mathew' the owner up to the point of collection, the service provided was by far the best i have experienced and far superior to any Main Dealer i have dealt with in the past. Through the course of the work i was updated regularly by both phone and video updates and when collected my vehicle was all cleaned and ready to go. Very reassuring to have now found a garage i can trust with any future work.

Very happy with the MOT, they were able to fit me in for an MOT at short notice after stratstone cancelled my appointment. The MOT was carried out properly and great email updates letting me know the progress. Car was washed in time for me to collect the car at the end of the day."

I recently had an engine light on and had been having the tracking done on the car every couple of months. I found the garden village garage online and was amazed how efficient they were within an hour they picked up my car and kept me updated through the whole process. The car was brought back earlier than expected and it was also fantastically clean- even better then when it goes to get a valet. I would recommend this garage to anyone the customer service was fantastic especially Matthew. Thankyou garden village garden

I hadn't driven my car (beetle cabriolet) for 6 months, it was subsequently stuck on my drive. Matthew and his team not only made the car mobile and gave it an MOT but they returned it to me in the loved condition it had originally been. Through a transparent process of being sent videos for each stage of the MOT and repairs, I felt confident about the high quality and cost effective work that was being completed. Thanks.

The Garden Village Garage in Caerphilly has just removed the existing 13-Pin electrical socket from my BMW X3 and installed a 13-Pin Socket with a dedicated wiring kit. I had a full tow bar kit installed by another company in June and had experienced continual problems with the cars electrical systems and the quality of the wiring was atrocious. The installation carried out by Mathew and his team was excellent and everything on the car is working satisfactorily. The level of service provided was exceptional from the initial call to Mathew when I explained my problem, the follow up call from the Technician Mark, the video showing the progress of the installation to finally collecting a very clean car. A huge thanks to Mathew for taking on the job in the first place and a huge thanks to Mark for a very neat and high quality installation. I would have no problem recommending this garage to anybody.

Had a flat tyre and even though this garage was open but only for admin they kindly managed to get their recovery truck out to me to collect my car and drop it off to a competitor to have my tyre replaced.extremely friendly and caring and proving that it costs nothing to be kind! Life savers. Can’t recommend enough!
