    garage/specialist sussex/surrey

    I'm looking for a garage or specialist in the Sussex/Surrey area. Nothing too complicated just usual MOT/servicing stuff.

    There area couple of places that I usually use for my other cars but if possible I would like to go somewhere that;

    1 - knows CWs and is familiar working on them
    2 - appreciates the car and takes care/pride in their work
    3 - will not rip me off and is a bit cheaper than a Renault main dealer

    Any recommendations appreciated

    Thanks Vandella, I do know of this place but someone I know had a bad experience there. Have you used them? If no where do you go/who do you use??

    i use a kitcar builder just down the road from me, mainly marcos and mini marcos's. he's no Renault expert but has learnt alot from having mine over the last 5/6 years and now knows his way around it pretty well.. its called 'Sussex Kitcars' and his name is John.

    he is a smart guy and very competant.. where abouts are you? what work is it you want doing? he's not able to tackle every mechanical job as he has no lifts, but does have hoists etc for engines and does mot prep work, unfortunatley not MOT's.. for that i use a company in Heathfield that ive been too for a couple years on the trot: 'Heathfield Mot Centre'

    i havent used the company in Blackboys.. i asked for a quote to fit a fourth mount a few years back and it was abit on the expensive side so i didnt bother with them.. what did you hear.. do i want to know? lol

    Well Vandella I'm currently in Burgess Hill but funnily enough I used to live in Blackboys and its currently where my clio is stored!! I'm just looking for a general service and MOT. I've actually got a couple of leads from other forums I use so think I'll be ok.

    As for BSS I don't want to paint too bad a picture as I'm sure there is more to the story than I know about, but it involved them charging an extortionate amount of money and not resolving the problem. In the end the guy I know paid and just went elsewhere. This is just one person, but I would not risk my pride and joy there!
