What people are saying about us...

  • I was dubious about using a national garage as my experience has been very bad in the past. I normally use an independent garage. I was short on time to get my mot done and was unable to get into mine.. However I was so happy with the service I recieved, I was booked in very quickly. The staff were super friendly. Very kind and listened to my wishes. Wasnt over charged or charged for jobs that didnt need doing. I will deffinatly be returning to formula one hastings! Thankyou
