I called in for a last minute MOT and Sanna and the team were very kind enough to slot me in. They were very efficient and quick with doing the repairs that were needed. Would definitely be recommending them and coming back if ever I need to!

Steve Barry
Friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Took car in for engine fault and they booked in and sorted same day with replacement of failed parts. Also charged a fair price. To be honest I didn't know that this garage was there, but now I know, I will certainly be using them in the future and I would highly recommend to friends and family. Thanks for sorting so quickly.

I can't praise the team at FD Mechanics enough!! Took our car in yesterday and we're so impressed by their friendly, helpful and upfront manner. They really know their stuff including Sanna on the front desk who does an amazing job. All so well organised and welcoming, so pleased we've found this place, won't hesitate to use again.

So I had months of stress with a coolant leak which another garage failed to diagnose and fix. I was looking for a place to finally fix it, so I was told about FD Mechanics, I have decided to try. They responded quickly and booked me in. I took my car and they found the problem within few hours! I couldn't believe it! They have done very professional work on the car and the customer service was amazing from the beginning to the end! I will be back! If you need anything fixed you can rely on them! Great prices also! So take your car to them! Thank you FD Mechanics!

Cannot recommend FD highly enough. Super friendly, family-run business. They’re great communicators; they don’t try and upsell and they’re honest as the day is long with regards to issues they find and possible solutions. I’ve never felt like they are trying it on - they’re just very decent people who care about their customers. They’ve helped me out of a hole a few times now with last minute MOT’s and other things. Takes a lot for me to put myself out and review a business but FD Mechanics deserve it.

Had our car Service and MOT done with FD Mechanics.Great service and I am very happy.Was getting close to when our MOT was due, they were able to fit us in pretty quickly. Even though I dropped the car off late that day, the MOT and service were done that day.I was informed the whole way through using WhatsApp which was very convenient. Reasonable pricing for additional items such as brake fluid change and new rear wiper.And great advice given on a few issues with our car.Would not hesitate to use again and will take our other car to them which is very dear to us and usually goes to a specialist.

Was let down by another garage who struggled to find the problem and were a nightmare to get hold of. Took it to FD and it was a totally different experience, really friendly and helpful. Diagnosed the problem and fixed within a day. Would recommend to anyone.

I used to live in the area and took an old car here as there was an issue another mechanic couldn’t fix. Fraiser arranged for it to be fixed on the day.I now live 20/30 minutes away, but I will always come back here.This is the only car mechanic you need to know. Lovely people, helpful, trustworthy and incredibly reasonable.

Michael&Jenny Tomlin
We have used FD Mechanics for our last 3 cars and they have been absolutely fantastic every time we have used them.Having had our recent car for nearly a year, we booked it in for a full service and MOT. Our car was collected on time in the morning from our house which removed the need for us to drop it off and pick it up which was really helpful.We were contacted very shortly after they had collected the vehicle as it turned out there was an engine part that was very close to failing which would cause a lot more issues if it wasn’t fixed. This was before the full service and MOT had even been done.The part was expensive to replace so they suggested different options for us to make it more affordable if needed (change from full service to part service, defer the service and just do the repair and the MOT etc).We decided to go ahead with everything all at once and appreciated the heads up before they went ahead with any work that was required.The vehicle was then dropped back to us at the end of the day, repaired, fully serviced and had passed its MOT.I highly recommend using FD Mechanics for all vehicle needs and will always refer people to them when someone asks “Do you know a good Mechanic?”

Would thoroughly recommend FD Mechanics for any car repair or service. We've been using them for about 5 years now. They provide an excellent service, are honest in their assessments, efficient and value for money. They can arrange vehicle recovery, collection and delivery. 5 stars.

Fantastic, honest and reliable garage. I recently moved into the area and have visited the garage twice in the last few weeks, once to get a dead battery replaced and more recently for a full service and MOT on the same vehicle. The service from Frazer and the team was always impeccable and the communication absolutely spot on. I was called during the day with an update, and asked prior to any additional work taking place with a rough quote given over the phone. Sanna also advised there was a slight brake fluid leak that they were further investigating and what the consequences of that may be, however I received another call later in the day to advise it was simply a case of tightening a few things up rather than having to replace any parts, and this was done at no cost.Glad to have found such a great local garage, highly recommended and will be using them going forward for MOTs and servicing of both our family cars.
