ABOUT US

COVID-19 Update

We remain open and fully staffed to continue to MOT, service and repair your vehicles, and of course see to any breakdowns that arrive. We want to keep you on the road for your essential journeys. #inittogether

If you have your vehicle booked in at Queens Park Garage, it is important that prior to your booking, you MUST let us know if you have experienced ANY symptoms of feeling unwell, or if you are waiting for test results or have tested positive for Covid-19 so that we can rebook. This is to maintain the safety of ALL our customers and staff, so no matter how mild your symptoms, please call us prior to dropping off your car and speak to our team to find you an appointment after your isolation period has ended.

Whilst the government gave a 6-month holiday on all MOTs after the 31st March 2020 it has now been updated and no further MOT holidays have been planned. If your vehicle is due an MOT on or after the 1st August 2020 you are required to have an MOT before using your vehicle on public roads. Book early to avoid disappointment as bookings are filling up fast. Please check our visitors page for our social distancing rules upon visiting Queens Park Garage.

The 6 month extension is still valid and still applies if your vehicle was due an MOT between these dates, For example if your MOT was due on 10th June 2020, the new renewal date is 10th December 2020 not 1st August, however it is still a legal requirement that you ensure that your car is roadworthy, and safe. The Government states that you, as a car owner are expected to keep your car in a roadworthy condition and they have issued a list of relevant checks that SHOULD be carried out by car owner’s to ensure their vehicles are roadworthy. If they are not you could face a £2,500 fine, and or lose your licence. If you are taking advantage of this extension, please check the Government website to familiarise yourself with the requirements.

seat and steering wheel covers

We use seat covers, floor mats, steering wheel covers, gear knob and hand brake lever covers on every car whether there’s a virus or not. We also wear gloves as standard and masks when working inside your vehicle.

We are also using antibacterial wipes to wipe down the door handles, keys, and any areas of contact within your vehicle. We also run an antibacterial aerosol through your ventilation system as part of our full service, or this can be done at request for any other booking. Due to social distancing please be aware when visiting the garage that:

  • We are only permitting one customer in the reception area at any time.

Great service in difficult times. Had three cars in the family for MOT in the same week. Always happy to talk through any issues on the car.

Sophie 18/01/2021

First time using the garage as only in Bournemouth for university. A friendly welcome and excellent customer service throughout, the team rung to give a quote prior to doing any work and explained all that needed to be done in an understandable way. Extra precautions to keep everyone safe too! Thank you!

Katrina Webber 09/01/2021

We had our first mot done at the Queens Park Garage. What can I say, they are a 100% trust worthy garage that go above and beyond to help with any problems. Very knowledgeable. Very competitive. And friendly. Will not be going to any other garage from now on. Also they saved us alot of money from a wrong diagnosis from a very untrustworthy garage!!! Keep up the good work guys. 100% recommend 👌

Facts About Drinking & Driving You Need to Know

The pandemic is not the only reason we need to be asking people to stay safe this year. Drinking and driving is most common at Christmas time and it continues to be an issue in the UK even in 2020. Many fear that this year, some people may use the holiday season to have a ‘blow out’ and drink irresponsibly. Whilst there is no harm in having a few drinks and enjoying yourself, you must NOT drink and drive as it will put you and others at risk.
