Car & Van Servicing


Our business has been built on a strong foundation of vehicle service work and we have a strong customer list of both private and commercial customers. Continuous investment in diagnostic fault code reading equipment puts us ahead of the field in identifying and eliminating faults in a huge range of vehicles.

Under the Block Exemption EU rules, we carry out servicing to vehicles which does not invalidate the manufacturers’ warranty. This means your vehicle gets an excellent service - at a price considerably lower than a main dealer franchise will charge. See Car & Van Servicing for more information.

Tyres & Exhaust Fitting

Tyre FittingWe have a very high throughput of tyres and exhausts and we use our buying volume to leverage excellent buying prices from our suppliers. This enables us to offer prices on tyre and exhaust fitting which are very competitive, even against the fast fit operations.

We do regular pricing comparisons and find that we are usually the best price in Wigan for exhausts and both branded and quality budget tyres.

In our garage we have specialist equipment for fitting low profile tyres onto aluminium wheels. For more information see Tyres & Exhaust fitting.
