Do you carry out repairs if my car fails MOT testing?


With your permission we will rectify any issues that caused your car to fail the MOT and then provide a free re-test. Once the car has passed the MOT testing, a pass certificate will be issued. We try and do this the same day if possible.


At what point do you recommend car servicing?


All vehicles should have car servicing annually or every 12000 miles. If you’re on the road a lot, we recommend an interim service. All car servicing sees a change of oil and air filter, top ups on brake and radiator fluids as well as multi-point check on all integral parts.


A warning light has appeared on the dashboard of my van. What do I do?


Bring your van to our garage in Storrington and we will attach our vehicle diagnostics machine to the ECU on your engine. This will tell us immediately if there’s a fault and where it’s located. All vehicle diagnostics equipment is constantly updated and will read all makes and models electronics.
