I took my camper van conversion in to get an MOT and Kev and the guys were brilliant. Was sweating a bit that it was going to be a write off but they made me feel much better about it all when they told me what needed done. Welded chassis beautifully, changed fuel filter and adjusted the brakes in no time at all and even let me hang around and learn a few things!

The age of my vehicle means that it will definitely require more work in the future, but I am now happy I have contact with a team of pros to keep me on the road. Highly recommended.

After a bad dealership experience (years ago) I tried Carnies as it was close to my workplace. I no longer work near by but the 25 mile drive is worth it. Routine servicing and larger repairs have been done and I have had no issues with any of it. Emergency repairs have been done as quickly as possible. The location is convenient to bus and tram services too. Prices are fair and appropriate. True it doesn't look like an upmarket marque dealership but then YOU end up paying for the expensive tiles on the floor and so on.

It is a shame I can only give five stars as they deserve six!

Highly recommend the Carnies Autocentre. The staff are friendly and trustworthy and really reasonably priced, especially compared to other garages.

The staff are really knowledgable and will give you an honest account of work that needs done.They kept me up to date on the progress of work being carried out and jobs was completed in reasonable time.

I have used them for bigger jobs such as getting cluch replaced as well as servicing and MOT's and would not take my car elsewhere.

Probably the best experience i have had at a garage lately as main dealer wanted far too much money to repair a small item and other garages just wouldn't entertain me but the guys at carnies were great almost felt like family

We were recommended by a neighbour and on two occasions the service provided by Kevin and his Staff has been exemplary. On both of our cars high repair costs were quoted by two nationwide dealers. Carnies carried out the required repairs and provided MOT's at considerably less cost, in one case a third of the price quoted previously. This is one garage that will have our custom for many years to come. Thank you for a job well done,

Words fall short in expressing my appreciation to Carnies, the knowledge, professionalism and first class customer care I received was second to none. Furthermore going above and beyond in ordering parts from ebay as it is so difficult to get parts in the UK for a Chrysler not to mention fixing my very heavy cumbersome rear view mirror that would not stay up for love nor money (free of charge I may add) just proves my point on the exceptional customer service and value for money I received at Carnies I cannot thank you enough and HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU TO ANYONE that is looking for an honest reliable garage.

Been using this garage for over 15 years and have never had a single complaint. The one time they forgot to do something (a brake switch) they fixed it for free and never charged for the part either. It is a well run and friendly business who won't tell you want you hear just the truth. If you want an honest and good value service then look no further. Kevan and his team are excellent.

Have used these guys a good few times now and honestly can't say enough good things about them - great workmanship, they always call to let you know what needs done before doing it, source the best value-for-money parts rather than going with cheap rubbish or wildly overpriced gimmickry, and on top of that - the car always comes back FIXED. None of this coming back later because the problem persists!

I've used Carnies for a couple of years now, I wished I'd used them instead of the main dealers before that.
Great customer service trying to fit into my schedule rather than me fit in with them. The mechanic also takes time to explain what and why they're doing.
It's also very handy for dropping the car off and getting into town.
I'll be back :-)
