Repairs

We operate from a small workshop in the heart of the Dorset countryside near Puddletown, and have full workshop and diagnostic facilities there. It is a quaint old place and is around 100 years old. Its been everything from a cattle shed to a grain barn and now is home for most of the week to myself and my employee Jay. We now have two ramps and there isn’t much we cant handle.Between us we now have around fifty years experience in the motor trade. There’s been a lot of changes in that time, and we try to keep up! We can do most things and have had more modern Land Rovers in of late, from turbos on TDV8 and body off jobs for various other common problems. Our skill set lies mainly in classic and vintage Land Rovers, and we have undertaken many restorations and rebuilds of late. We can often repair things that other garages have failed in doing .We have full welding,cutting and light fabrication facilities which we have used for everything from making or repairing obsolete or expensive parts to repairing Doris from the villages AGA.

For MOTs we can collect the vehicle, take it for testing, repair as necessary and then return it to you so it need not become the hassle of your day to get the car to the MOT station and wait for the testing to be carried out, there is a charge for this service,but you are most welcome, by arrangement; to drop the vehicle at the workshop. We will never carry out work that you have not agreed to, so no unexpected bills.

Something else that annoys me about modern practice is the price that is charged. Main dealerships often charge extortionate amounts per hour and it isn’t paid to the mechanics who do the job. Our labour rate is £60 per hour plus VAT, . Of course we can be beaten as far too many large chain garages have benefits of scale that I am not rewarded as yet as a small business. But overall for the service we provide I don’t believe you can find better value for money.
