In Feb last year, took my Fiat 500x to Vulcan and from start to finish it was awful. They were supposed to have replaced the head gasket but they hadn't. They kept it for 2 months and all they did is pour in a sealant to stop the leak. They claimed they replaced the head gasket and sent it off and that's why it took so long however, the issue had returned only 9 months later and a RELIABLE technician has looked and said there is Zero evidence the head gasket has been removed.Location: GU14
Charged a pensioner £30 to supply and fit headlight bulb.1Verified Review
This company charged a pensioner nearly £30 to supply and fit an H7 headlight bulb to a MK4 Golf. It takes literally minutes to fit. Beware.Location: GU17
Helpful, courteous and slick operation. Been using this business for decades. Can't recommend them highly enough for MOT, repairs or servicing. Thanks all.Location: GU47
I had booked a courtesy car via my lease company but when I arrived they had not done so. Paul arranged a driver to take me to work and collect me again later. Excellent service from the teamLocation: RG27
I booked my car in for a service with Vulcan Motors. I arrived and the car park was busy but Paul kindly took my keys and parked the car for me. I received a phone call from Paul to say that the brake pads were low and it was recommended that I change them, he quoted me a price which was less than I expected. Upon collection of the vehicle Paul ran through the work carried out and the itemised bill and ensured I had no queries before I left. I can't praise them enough and the service provided by Paul was exceptional and he's a huge credit to the business. I highly recommend Vulcan Motors.Location: GU47

Vulcan Motors Ltd was founded in 1990 and was then taken over in 2000 by a local couple. The business was then revitalised to offer a full range of high-quality servicing, repairs, and maintenance for all makes of cars, vans & Long wheelbase vehicles such as motor homes. This includes all types of mechanical work, engine diagnostics, tuning, and the servicing and re-gassing of air-conditioning systems. Vulcan Motors has since been purchased by Torque Monkeys Automotive LTD in the early part of 2022.
Vulcan Motors is the name everyone in the area knows and trusts, Torque Monkeys Automotive is being utilised as a bolt-on brand to cover the more bespoke automotive work, such as tuning & modifications. When Torque Monkeys Automotive was founded, we concluded that there was a lack of “one-stop-shop” automotive repair centres. We found most garages offered a specialist focus, whether that be: general service, remapping/tuning, exhaust work or tyres and wheel replacements. By merging Vulcan Motors & Torque Monkeys Automotive, we can now offer the ability to cover all your automotive needs, meaning we can provide an all-around package service. Thus, we can save you time and money by using our broad knowledge and abilities, rather than you, as the customer, having to vigorously search around for different places to get various specialist work carried out. Our goal is to stay at the forefront of the latest technology within the automotive industry, for example, Electric Vehicles (EVs) & Hybrids, while retaining our knowledge of older vehicles. Whether your vehicle is old or new, we have the finest mechanics standing by to fix any problem you may have or any modification work you may want to be carried out.
The company, whose standards are approved by the Retail Motor Industry Federation, also operates an Accreditation MOT test station.
We provide servicing and maintenance support to private motorists and several local businesses. As a member of the Bosch Car Service network, our customers enjoy the added confidence that they can bring their cars and vans to a firm whose standards are monitored by a world-leading company. They can be confident that the work will be carried out correctly, efficiently and at costs that are considerably more competitive than the franchised dealers.
“Recently introduced EU rules make it easier for drivers to choose where to get their van or car serviced. This allows us to carry out work on any make of vehicle without compromising the manufacturer’s warranty terms and to do so at a more affordable price.”
The Bosch Car Service network is also the first independent garage group to achieve approval for its Consumer Code of Practice from the Office of Fair Trading. Displaying the BCS/OFT logo makes a statement that customers can expect the highest standard of service and that a clearly defined system is in place for the open, fast and fair resolution of complaints. Bosch Car Service now has over 500 garages in its network throughout the UK. Being a member of the network also ensures that staff at Vulcan Motors have access to the best Bosch training courses and the latest diagnostic equipment and quality parts for servicing and repair.
