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 – 26 March

Following Government advice we are still OPEN AS USUAL – however, the following advice has now been given regarding MOT testing:

IF YOUR MOT TEST IS DUE BEFORE 30TH MARCH PLEASE GET IN TOUCH URGENTLY, as it should be carried out as normal.  From 30th March MOT’s will be given an automatic 6 month extension, but vehicles must be kept in a roadworthy condition if they are used during this time.

Please click here for Government update on MOT testing.

If you have any questions at all please email us, rather than call the workshop (or have someone email on your behalf) – at 

Many thanks & stay safe everyone, Martin & the Team

"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."
"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."
"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%."
