Avoid at all costs! My car went in for a free winter check and to have a comprehensive break check; it was booked in for 9.30AM on a Saturday. I was told the checks would take 1 - 2 hours. They broke 2 parts on my car and could not replace them!! My car was therefore unable to be driven and was not able to be collected until 6pm on the following Monday! The mechanics told me they would call me when the car was ready to collect. The garage shuts at 6pm on Mondays... I called them at 5:50PM and they told me I could collect it (a little bit more notice before closing time wouldn't have gone a miss)! The mechanics also told me that the store was shut on Sundays - I suspect that this was a ploy to keep me from hassling them about my broken car as I called them on Sunday anyway and guess what...?! The phone lines were manned! Original quote for work was £275 but the final quote was £450... For parts that I then got off of EuroCarParts for £145 (I even asked the mechanic where they source their parts and he said EuroCarParts!!! The site had a 35% discount on all parts that weekend and they tried to charge me full price regardless). I will never use this company again... I'd been advised against them in the past but tried to give them the benefit of the doubt. Quite frankly, Kwik-Fit are cowboys!! GENERAL INFO: Car park available, garage is a short walk from town and there is a free drinks machine in the reception.
