What our clients say...

Brett Patchett
Talented mechanic recently started his own business. Serviced / repaired Range Rover, VW Golf, Peugeot Speedfight, Aprilia SR50 R & Audi S6 for me in the last 5 months - always an excellent job @ very reasonable rates. Works late & weekends when urgent repairs are needed. Transporter pick up comes to you, wherever you've broken down.
Rob Davey
Took my mags into Aaron to get them glass beaded to remove the etching in the alloy finish..... Finished job exceeded expectations and the Matt appearance has brought new life back to the rims.... He even went beyond and removed curbing on the lathe for a top notch finish. Highly recommended for any big or small jobs.
Rick Ashley
A difficult job undertaken and finished in very good time on my car. Very pleasing to see such interest with my old Mercedes and surprised with the excellent price. I would thoroughly recommend this Mechanic any time, well done Aaron.
First Laydee
This guy is straight up on point at!!, sticks to the plan and delivers on the goods at a very reasonable price. Hes honest professional and approachable always greets you with a 😊smile. Aarons done an awesome job on my vehicle definitely be using his services again.
Ricky Llewell
I brought a skylight r33 and it needed a lot of work done to it to get a wof. Not only did Aaron fix what need done, he keeps the price low and was very helpful with the hole experience.
