Alpha Automobiles Ltd provide Class IV MOT testing and advanced vehicle diagnostics for car and light commercial vehicle owners in Storrington, Ashington, Pulborough, West Chiltington and the surrounding West Sussex area. Alongside car repairs and car servicing, we are able to offer high standards of workmanship on every job we undertake.
By investing heavily into key equipment and facilities, our company meets the needs of local motorists who prefer to have their automotive work completed under a single roof. While we are based in Storrington, we extend a warm welcome to customers from all parts of West Sussex who are looking for genuine specialists in MOT testing and vehicle diagnostics.
Our Storrington workshop is an approved VOSA/DVSA MOT testing centre and every inspection is carried out by fully trained personnel. MOT testing must be undertaken annually on all cars over 3 years old. The test checks important safety, emission and roadworthiness standards, and the 45-minute test can be performed while you wait.
If, for any reason, your vehicle fails the MOT test, we can re-test without charge once the faults have been fixed. We also highlight any potential car repairs that may need addressing at a later date, such as worn brakes or tyres near minimum tread, as advisories. Pre-MOT testing inspections are also available to give your car the best possible chance of passing.
Once your details are registered with us, we are able to give you notice of when MOT testing is next due. As a modern facility, we provide motorists in Storrington, Ashington, Pulborough, West Chiltington and all surrounding areas with MOT testing up to one month before the old certificate expires. Old and new certificates can run concurrently, giving you up to 13 full months of MOT testing coverage for your vehicle.
Customers in Storrington and West Sussex can visit our garage for a complete range of engine management services including vehicle diagnostics. We are genuine local specialists for leading vehicle marques such as Renault, Ford, BMW, Audi and Mercedes, and we are able to provide code reading and sub-system fault-finding through your vehicle’s ECU (Electronic Control Unit). An ECU is fitted to most modern factory-produced cars.
Your vehicle’s on-board computer transmits stored fault codes to our equipment, and these codes are translated by our technicians to show exactly what’s wrong with a car. Vehicle diagnostics enable our team to deal with problems quickly and efficiently, saving our customers many hours in labour when compared to traditional mechanical work.
We encourage motorists in Storrington, Ashington, Pulborough, West Chiltington and the surrounding areas to visit us as soon as an engine management warning light appears. Vehicle diagnostics help to eliminate further component damage. As engine management and auto electrical specialists, we can keep your DPF (Diesel Particle Filter) clean and check your ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) or the ESP (Electronic Stability Program).
Vehicle Diagnostics can also be carried out as part of our usual car servicing and car repair work. We charge a fixed fee for car servicing and, if we do find faults in your ECU, we’ll inform you first before going ahead with the work. Unlike other garages in Storrington and the surrounding areas, we never apply hidden charges on any of our services.
