Dealt with Ben, Charlie and the team really friendly and professional service. Trustworthy and honest garage 100% will use again. Had some major work carried out timing chain replacement, spark plugs and oil service. Transparency through the entire process they also kept me updated by email on the progress which was great
Thank you QCS
Excellent service every time, professional friendly staff and service
Great service - these guys found an electrical fault on our van that two other garages failed to identify. As their name states, it definitely is a Quality Car (Van in our case) Service!
I have my cars serviced and MOTd at this centre. During the 4 years I have known this company, I have found the staff to be extremely helpful and welcoming every time I visited, special mention here for Charlie who has been excellent! Their service standards and turnaround times are impeccable and speaking as a person who loves his cars, I would not go anywhere else. Highly recommended, keep... Read More
Professional garage that provides professional service that’s moneys worth. Pleased with the customer service. Car was repaired in time without any delays and was offered a complimentary car wash 🧼 🚗 before collection. This is now my go to garage. Keep up the excellent standard 👏👏
Very helpful and very quick doing repair. Recommended
Booked my car in for its MOT and the service from start to finish was amazing! Nothing was too much trouble and was kept updated during the process. Also had my husbands flat tyre in the boot and they fixed it there and then without any drama. Quick and easy to use the online booking system. Will be recommending to friends and family.
Got my focus remapped here and can not recommend them enough, after a number of company's couldn't get my car mapped, I booked it in here for a full ecu bench map and the improvement in my car is unreal, accerlation has improved significantly aswell as my mpg, thankyou for everything, highly recommend?
Excellent, top class service! Called at 8.00am Monday after Platinum Jubilee weekend and was booked in for the same morning to be diagnosed. Once dropped off, was called a couple of hours later with a report and then promptly fixed same afternoon with collection at 4.30. Would recommend them 100%
My BMW was now out of warranty Ann’s the first MOT was due. As I had previously been to Qcs with previous cars it was a no brainer to use them again.
Once again excellent service will use them for all further work 100%. Well done guys
