Excellent service - polite, friendly, efficient, honest and professional. Very trustworthy and I don't feel like they would ever rip you off.
Friendly efficient service
The garage is really communicative and informative. I always trust their advice.
The staff always explain issues properly and keep you updated.
Very reliable staff who always keep me informed about the jobs that need doing before going ahead with the repairs. Fair prices, friendly staff and high quality jobs.
My experience with this garage is as usual very positive. I come here as I always get good service and an honest opinion about the car, with a fair price for the jobs. The location to the tram is also great.
Local and reliable garage. Always happy with the service.
I visited the garage after good reports from friends. They are very friendly and approachable. Always quick to get back to you with quotes.
I've hated being patronised by mechanics who think that they can rip me off or not explain things because I'm a woman. Steve and Mike always take time to explain what work is needed and do so in a way that I can understand. Lots of my girlfriends have had the same experience after I've recommended Bridge Motor Company to them.
