I've used the Central Motor Company twice now for a repair and MOT. The young lady who booked me in and carried out the repair was super friendly, knowledgeable and went the extra mile to ensure a quality repair was made. In fact everyone I met at the garage was kind and genuine, and very competent at what they do. They explain the work they intend to do very clearly and, unusually (in my experience), they charge fairly. I can't praise them enough! Give them a try and support local businesses 🙂

Very Kind Garage, took me car for inspection which was carried out by Josh & he’s been very helpful in determining the issue that my car is having. Would highly recommend this garage, especially if you’ve got a BMW.

Our car lost power and RAC diagnosed a throttle body fault. Central took the car from RAC and diagnosed the same issue and gave us a quote the next day even though they were very busy and the hot weather was causing issues for them. They kept us up to date and fixed our car in a couple of days for a very reasonable price. We always use this garage and trust them completely. Would definitely recommend.
