What people are saying about us...

  • Staff were very helpful and service overall excellent. Price was also the lowest around hence our business coming your way. Finally, the staff insisted on Covid measures being implemented with other customers not wearing masks which was good to see. They would not serve them intil they wore masks - excellent!

  • F1 autocentre also had stock when others did not. Pleased with the service and will recommend to others.

  • 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.
