Servicing is a big part of our business, so we like to do it right – fitting only quality parts from top manufacturers.
We look after many new cars still under manufacturers warranty, so we ensure to use either dealer parts or parts of equivalent quality to maintain your warranty. Although we specialise in French cars we also service and maintain virtually every other make and model (Mazda Bongo, Porsche Boxter, Mercedes A class and even a VW Caravette) are just a few of the more unusual ones – however a normal day is more likely to consist of the usual French cars with a Ford, Vauxhall and maybe even a Nissan thrown in for good measure.
So if you drive an old or new car and need a service at a fair price, please contact us to arrange an appointment.
We offer a range of diagnostic testing, covering all popular makes and models.
All modern cars have ECU’s making them ‘computer controlled’ and when problems occur our electronic diagnostic equipment comes into play. ABS, Airbag, Engine Management, Key Programming and re-setting Service Indicators etc is what this is all about. Also incorporating functions for component testing and watching ‘live’ data.
All this is backed up and assisted by our complex AUTODATA computer program, with in-depth wiring diagrams and testing procedures allowing us to investigate fault codes even further.
At Express Garage we offer a local breakdown and recovery service at a very affordable rate.
For the majority of recoveries we use our fully equipped and hydraulically braked ‘spec lift’ towing dolly. Our state of the art towing dolly works the same way as the ‘spec lift’ on larger recovery vehicles – raising the front wheels (or in some cases the rear wheels) of the vehicle being towed, ideal for vehicles that won’t start or have brake problems etc We offer very competitive rates for vehicle recovery, contact us with your requirements or for a quote
At Express Garage we take brakes very seriously – one area of your car where you can’t afford to cut corners!
We only use parts from the top manufacturers (Bosch, Delphi, Valeo, Bendix etc).
We fabricate our own brake and suspension pipes ‘in house’ – for both conventional braking systems and also Citroen 3.5mm / 4.5mm brake and suspension pipes.
So what ever your braking requirements you can rest assured that Express Garage can offer you the best possible service – using only the highest quality parts and furthermore, at the best possible price.
Suspension is an area we have a lot of experience in. Whether it be shock absorbers, coil springs, torsion bars or hydraulic (on many Citroen models).
We carry many special tools for suspension repairs, from handheld tools for replacing various bushes, to pressure testing equipment/gauges etc and also a floor mounted coil spring compressing machine.
Broken coil springs and leaking shocker absorbers are common occurrence on modern cars, can be dangerous and can seriously affect your cars handling, so why not get in touch to make arrangements for a free suspension safety check and competitive quote if any work is needed.
At Express Garage we can cater for all of your exhaust requirements at very competitive prices.
As with anything ‘you get what you pay for’, So we recommend fitting exhausts from the top manufacturers like Walker, Bosal and Timax – they last longer, generally fit better and sound the same as the original, however for older vehicles we can offer a budget exhaust range.
Catalytic converters are another area where we can offer extremely competitive prices, thankfully in recent years ‘cats’ have come down dramatically in price to very affordable levels (many now less than half price compared to a couple of years ago)
So for anything exhaust related please get in touch to arrange an appointment.
In recent years clutches have become more complicated, with the introduction of semi automatics and dual mass fly wheels etc. We only supply and fit clutches from leading manufacturers, ensuring a perfect job every time and with full parts and labour guarantee.
We only use leading manufacturers for our timing belts and timing belt kits and we are constantly investing in all the specialist timing and setting tools required to set timing correctly on the modern engines. All timing belt jobs come with a full warranty.
