ABOUT US

COVID-19 Update

From Thursday, 5th November 2020, we are remaining 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

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 for the November lock down. 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.

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 the social distancing please be aware when visiting the garage that:

  • We are only permitting one customer in the reception area at any time.
  • The waiting area is now closed.
  • A distance line has been placed on the floor in order to adhere to safe distancing.
  • Please wear a mask when picking up/dropping off your vehicle.

Megan and Zack 02/12/2020

First time My boyfriend and I went to this garage, friendly service and very professional. Good prices as well. My boyfriends car needed a fair amount doing and they did it for the next day. I only needed my centre brake light cover replaced and they ordered it and fitted it for the same time my boyfriends car was finished so we could both leave together. Had a lovely chat with the manager and will definitely go back again. Will recommend this garage to anyone

Car Repair Horror Stories from Queens Park Garage

It’s that time of year again where everyone is getting ready for the spookiest night of the year. It’s also that time of year where we are reminding people to get their cars serviced ready for the colder months.

Regular servicing is important for many reasons, the main one being your safety as we often come across issues under the bonnet that drivers may not have realised were there until it is sometimes too late. These issues can end up being dangerous and costly to repair and often could have been prevented if a regular servicing plan were in place.
