What people are saying about us...

  • Staff were exceptional. I have never been a customer before, but I have called and enquired by phone about a number of things and the advise has always been surprising and the return calls as well sometimes unexpected and informative with good recommendations. I decided to use F1 Autocentres this time as my car was new and this was the first opportunity I had for needing new tyres.

  • The manager ensured that the car was booked in earlier than expected as I had urgent business to attend to and it was ready again after a few hours. Excellent service.
