Are you afraid of being blinded by science when you take your car to the garage? Are you concerned about the cost, and if all that work is really necessary?

COVID – 19 UPDATE – April 2020

We are OPEN AS USUAL for SERVICING, MOT’s & REPAIRS – and have put into place the necessary safety measures to protect our staff and customers from Covid-19 whilst visiting the workshop (please also adhere to the 2 metre distancing rule).

As we are operating on a reduced work Team, if the phone is not answered, please contact us via email – or via Facebook Messenger for a quicker response.  We will also be regularly updating our  Facebook page with info, please pop over and give our page a ‘like’.

Many thanks & stay safe everyone, Martin & the Team

Following Government advice, which allows all garages to run a normal service, we gather that if you’ve pre-booked an appointment with us, dropping your vehicle to be repaired/MOT/serviced is an essential trip.

From 30th March MOT’s due will be given a 6 month extension, but vehicles must be kept in a roadworthy condition if they are used during this time.  However, we encourage you, whenever safe to do so, to get your MOT carried out when it becomes due.  (There is now some small print to say that the automatic extension is not guaranteed).  Please click here for further Government info on MOT testsing.


Sadly, we hear this so often. Since we started in Basingstoke, way back in 1991 as independent Volvo specialists, we’ve built an enviable reputation for good quality service at the right price. Now we service all makes and models of cars and have added Nissan to our specialities – but our commitment to delivering a great result hasn’t changed.

Why not find out for yourself?  Call the Volvo & Nissan Garage in Basingstoke on 01256 364 753 to book your car in.

"Great service with a ‘we can do it’ attitude, along with a great eye to keeping costs as low as possible. A delay in sending the bill, then what a surprise – the bill is less than I dared expect. We have no hesitation in having our family of cars looked after by these guys, and recommend them to anyone who will listen."
"Great Service at a reasonable price. Always provided excellent service. Specialist knowledge of my vehicle type ensures accurate assessment of problems and resolution. Cheaper than a main dealer by far, and equally competent."
"Continued excellent service. As usual, excellent service from Martin Matthewson. They can be relied upon to only fix what needs fixing and are a garage that I trust 100%."
"A garage that really does give 5 star service! Communication is always first rate and this quality of information matches the level of technical quality in their service. A trusted garage with a customer service that really does tick all the boxes for excellence."
