    D&D Autos were very accommodating with an urgent MOT issue. I had previously been to Halfords for an MOT which failed and they were unhelpful in trying to resolve the issue. D&D was recommended by a friend and they kindly agreed to investigate on an urgent basis. They reset the lambda sensor, MOTd the vehicle - job done. The staff were courteous and kept me informed of progress. Would... Read More

    Just to reinforce all the positives on here. I find them always professional, personable, interested and as a bonus, always able to fix at a fair cost any issue my old car throws up. Please do not use them as some day, we will struggle to get booked in. Thanks as always.

    Great garage, with knowledgeable staff.
    So popular that it can take four weeks to get a repair slot, but worth the wait (if the fault is not serious)
    Will definately use again.

    Originally had service and MOT at the end of April this year. Today I noticed there was a problem with my air filter box and rang to raise my concern. Invited over same day for someone to have a look at the problem. Full inspection carried out, problem identified, options discussed and work carried out.

  • Lynne Heath

    15th June 2022

    Very impressed. New engine after timing chain failed, had other bits done at same time. It took quite a long time but was a huge job and I was kept up to date with progress calls. No issues at all after collection, absolutely perfect. Not cheap but you get what you pay for and I wanted a top job. Would recommend.

  • Linda Ellen (Pickle)

    16th May 2022

    From the booking of the MOT to the final bill, the service, not just for my car, but for me as a customer, was excellent. I felt valued as a customer. The facilities for waiting were very comfortable. The polite and amicable nature of the staff, so refreshing. Thanks guys.

    Having moved into the area recently I was recommended to D & D by a neighbour. I have used them twice now and am hugely impressed by their excellent customer service and helpful staff. Their free local drop off/pick up service is also a great touch especially for one-car families like ours and I have no hesitation in recommending them.
