What people are saying about us...

  • Friendly staff and COVID secure environment. Thanks for your advice regarding MOT advisories.

    - Ian, Northampton (Gambrel Road) - Oct 26, 2020
  • I was exceptionally pleased with how my MOT was carried out, it failed and the staff did everything they could to get the work done very quickly for me, so I could wait for it to be done. I think I was lucky they were not fully booked, but a big shout out to the team at Camberley for getting the work done quickly and the retest done for me within a couple of hours, definitely deserve the 5 star rating.

    - Craig, Camberley - Sep 30, 2020
  • Very courteous service. Problem(s) found were explained clearly and did not take too long to get them rectified.
