Company Profile
STEVE SHAW MOBILE MECHANIC

Please note, there are now over 50 instances whereby someone is imposing as Steve shaw, with a white van! I operate from a Ford Focus Estate Car, NOT a van with my name on! Please email me for authentication prior to booking/ talking to me! Classicandretroservices@gmail.com, sorry for the inconvenience, checkatrade are being made aware of this!

My company was founded 1st of April 2012. I have been in the trade since leaving school in 1976 and served a fully indentured 4 year (old school) apprenticeship. 

In my 35 years in the trade I have worked within many main dealers and worked on many different makes of car. 12 years of my working life were spent working for the MOD (Army) and during that time I worked on everything from chain saws to armoured fighting vehicles, an amazing experience!

My last job before starting working for myself was with the South East Coast Ambulance Service as a mobile vehicle technician carrying out work/repairs on Ambulance service vehicles at the roadside at hospitals or at ambulance stations, again a very interesting job.

I am a one man band with no expensive overheads so can keep my prices down. I am mobile and can carry out work wherever suits my customers, at home or at work.

The service I offer is general servicing and repairs, MOT`s and MOT repairs, including welding, minor body repairs and specialise in classic and retro cars, competition and kit cars, project cars, competition and track day preparation, restoration and refurbishment and am always interested in getting involved with anything unusual.

Please note, I am not always available to take telephone calls on my mobile during the day as I work completely on my own.  I know this can be frustrating when trying to get hold of me! Please feel free to call me in the evenings (up to 7pm) on 01903 610076

Locked handbrake on one rear wheel.
I had the handbrake locked on the offside rear wheel and could not get it moving at all. After 2/3 days of being messed around by my local garage, I was stranded on this Saturday morning in desperate need to get it fixed for that afternoon. I found Steve on here and gave him a quick call and he was out a couple of hours later and managed to fix it there and then within the hour. Steve is a great mechanic, has lots of knowledge and experience, very approachable and generally a very nice guy to chat to and reasonably price! Highly recommend!!!

Window regulator on my S type Jaguar.
I wont beat around the bush, all I can say is Steve is a breath of fresh air. Steve had a bit of a nightmare with my job but he kept on trying without charging me more! Get a quote from Steve and stop wasting your money at over priced garages! He's very honest and overall a very good mechanic and above all a damn good man. Booked my next service with him and Mot. Highly recommended.

New brakes.
After I had my MOT done, I was told that I would need new front and rear brakes soon. Steve quoted for all to be done. Upon arrival and inspection, he said the rear brakes were fine and only the front needed doing. After doing the front brakes he checked a couple of other things on the car, gave what appears to be good price and charged me less than the original price. Well happy.

Extensive rebuild of Classic Mini.
This was an extensive refurbishment program for a K reg Mini. The quotation was very detailed and very clear. During the two week program Steve Shaw issued regular written progress reports. The work was completed within the time frame and exceeded all expectations both in delivery of a finished vehicle and at a cost under the original estimate. Our confidence in Mr Shaw was well rewarded and we can only have the highest opinion of this skilled professional.

Replace discs and pads all round
The work was carried out on time and at the price quoted. Steve was very courteous and I was happy with everything he did. A few weeks after the replacement of the brakes, it developed a very worrying noise upon braking. Despite a number of polite / patient messages left on his answer phone / a couple of texts asking him to call me, I have had to now book the car to another garage tomorrow to get it looked at. The noise may or may not be connected to the work Steve Carried out, but it is terrible service that he hasn't contacted me, particularly given the work was on a safety item!

MOT and Interim service.
After being messed around by my last garage, I decided to look for a new mechanic. I found Steve had excellent reviews on Checkatrade! He collected the car from my house and took it for it's MOT, on getting back he started the service. The work was done quickly and thoroughly. All for an excellent price, which was a pleasant change from my previous mechanics. I would definately recommend Steve to anyone, and will use him for my car in the future. Really nice honest guy, and you don't have to leave your front room!

Handbrake was slack and breaks were not very good.
When I called the house number Steve's wife answered, she made me feel very comfortable (as I am female myself and at times have felt very intimidated when talking to garages about what is wrong). She assured me that she would give all info to Steve and he would call back. He did call back, took the time to talk to me, arranged a time to come to look at car. He is very courteous to his customers, his quality of work is excellent. I did not need a new handbrake cable as I was told at the garage, he did my breaks by cleaning them all up and the handbrake was adjusted. Steve has given me advise on another occasion and took the time to listen (once again). Thank God I have found someone I can trust! Thank you Steve.

New thermostat, new water pump and two new belts.
Steve was fantastic. Work carried out was exceptional and very professional. Steve came with all parts needed, fitted and tested to the highest standard. The cost of all works carried out was amazing value and I will most certainly recommend to friends and family. I myself will definitely use his services if needed again.
