Formula One Autocentres reviews

What people are saying about us...

Nov 18, 2016

I have previously used Enfields branch of F1 autocentres. I have always been happy with the level of service provided. I would also like to say how great the 4 months interest free payment idea is. This helps us with spreading the costs of any work completed on our vehicle. This is a game changer and we will defiantly use Rayleigh's centre to service and MOT both our vehicles in the future. Thank you Rayleigh

Once again the staff were extremely helpful and carried out the tyre changes quickly. As I had used the spare for the first time I was delighted to find that the spare tyre and tools were all neatly in place. I have used F1 for many years and they have never let me down yet. Chelmsford
