Vehicle services.
Simon has carried out service and repairs to both our cars and commercial vans. I have found him very helpful, prompt, and courteous on all occasions and provides good breakdowns of materials used and labour hours for each job.

Vehicle repairs and services.
I was in the motor trade myself as a mechanic in the 1960s.  Simon Rigden has done repairs and inspections to my satisfaction. I would use him again any time one of the best workers.

Replace battery.
Dead electrics meant battery in boot was inaccessible. He didn't give up til he found a way in - very grateful!

New battery fitted on fiesta.
We called Simon when my fiesta wouldn't start and we suspected a dead battery. Simon visited very promptly. He had a new battery with him, but did try first to get the old one sparked up again. Simon was very helpful, friendly and efficient. The price was fair and as quoted on 'phone. I will certainly use Simon again and would recommend him to anyone.

Fix broken heater fan in Renault Clio.
I was dealing with Simon on behalf of my sister and her car. After an initial misunderstanding (not his fault), the car was fixed in good time and the cost was considerably less than I was anticipating! Excellent, friendly service. Highly recommended.

Check possible problem with starting motor
I have been having trouble with my car starting intermittently, thought it was starting motor but after the Simon came out he thought it was the ignition. It started every time when Simon started it, of course. He gave me some advice, there was no pressure to have anything fixed and he only charged me a pittance for coming out. I am recommending Simon, very courteous and came out on time.

Check battery, replace faulty battery.
I was very impressed with the swift response to my call. I phoned in the morning and he arrived before the arranged time of 1pm. Kept me informed of what needed to be done and how much it would cost, and checked several times that the cost was ok with me.

Replaced perished Fan/Aux belt on Panda 1.3 Diesel.
Very welcome 'Old School' Service. Came out (amazingly) within hour and half of being called - very quick fix, hardly had the kettle boiled, see this isn't unusual - appeared very genuine and friendly guy. Would gladly recommend for any motoring related jobs. Would happily use Simon again - another name for the 'Handy Local Blokes' fridge door list.
