What people are saying about us...

  • On arrival at Formula 1 Crawley I found a smart reception area with a smartly dressed helpful member of staff. This staff member was referring to customers with a sir or a madam both to customers in person and also I noticed on the phone as well. He also explained roughly how long it would be before work commenced on my car and how long roughly it may take which is helpful if you are going off to do something else whilst waiting for your car. All this created a very good first impression of formula 1 Crawley and indeed Formula 1 as a company. I said to the member of staff on reception that I would wait for my car and I was directed to a large very airy waiting room with tea and coffee facilities comfortable chairs and an excellent all round view of the workshop area. There were two mechanics working as a team on my car and when it was necessary they came into the waiting area to keep me informed of anything that needed doing asking if they could go ahead with what they needed to do in my case this was to inform that the tracking needed to be adjusted and that a brake light was not working. I was told on arrival that my car would be into the workshop in about forty five minutes my car was in the workshop before this estimation. My car was at Formula 1 for four new tyres a free ten point spring check and check of the tracking. This work was carried out thoroughly and in a much quicker time than I thought it would be. All your staff on the day were polite and respectful. Taking into account that at the end of the day Formula 1 is a garage or workshop I found the smartness of the staff and the overall tidiness of your branch at Crawley to be very good. Formula 1 Crawley was recommended to me by a friend who said his son had been very happy with a recent service on his car at your Crawley branch I am glad I listened to his recommendation and will not hesitate using your services again and indeed recommending other people myself. Thank you for your service. Mr C Gooding.
