I (and some insurance providers too) highly recommend robin hood motors, have been there twice and each time I have received high quality service and professional advice. Their service costs are fairly reasonable too and the job was completed before time.

Brought my Mercedes for a couple of repairs. Diagnostics were always right, repairs very reasonably priced. Car usually repaired and ready the same day, even half day. Definitely a trustworthy shop!

After failing my NCT I had to seek help in getting my wheels aligned and some brake pipe hosey thingys fixed that was apparently corroded. Thomas was quite the knight in shining armour as after my clear lack of mechanical knowledge that my father would be ashamed of me for, or so I’d think if I knew him, who knows, anyway off topic… Thomas sorted all the stated issues out for me and would appear to have not fleeced me monetarily which I am potentially easy prey for for the classic alpha male, macho mechanic type people. Great service and now I can legally drive my car! Happy days

I have used Robin Hood Motors a couple of times now. I have always found the work carried out by the mechanics to be of a high standard, and the repairs a lot cheaper than other garages.
