    I went to Dave Cole’s Garage on a recommendation from a friend, and I was so impressed with the level of service I received. Fast, friendly, efficient and value for money. I will definitely be going back for anything I need in the future. A big thank you to Emma for being so kind and patient too.

    On this occasion, the work involved was only small-scale but was carried out immediately by the excellent staff at this service station to the usual high standard. My panel van is of 2003 vintage and I've made a deliberate choice to maintain it/meet all of its ongoing servicing requirements because it continues to play an important part in my life - over the years, the people at Dave Coles Garage (both in the yard and the office) have met every challenge a vehicle of that age presents, promptly, efficiently, with technical expertise (and sometimes, even with enthusiasm). Thank you, as ever.

    Amazing service. Paul was very detailed In the problems that needed fixing and pragmatic about sorting some problems as a matter of priority while advising that some not so urgent and could be sorted at a later date or not at a point that need addressing yet. Kept me up to date on many occasions throughout the day and provided many options. Some garages would just replace stuff just to make extra money but Not Dave Cole’s they are very honest and very helpful. Emma on the front desk was very helpful. The job even ended up be cheeper then quoted due to taking less hours then expect.
