Default Non franchise garages list

We have a list of these non franchise garages and mechanics and it is made up from recommendations from others who have used them. If you want to add a garage to the list then send it in.

Please note this is not for a garage or mechanic to advertise their services, it is only for owners to pass on a recommendation.

The list is HERE

Bob, I have supporting literature and business cards for "Old and Fast" and a "raison d'etre". Terry Houghton is an excellent engineer as is his business partner, Simon Shackell. Their website is up and running at www.oldandfast.co.uk and they can be e-mailed on office@oldandfast.co.uk. If you would like a copy of flyer and business card I can send them to you.

All the best, Peter.

Default Non franchise Newcastle

Hi,
I checked the link which lists the non franchised Volvo mechanics.
Went to one of the garages for Tyne and Wear (both in Sunderland) and the garage was flattened for a new housing estate so guessing this list is a bit old!
Does anyone no of any good non franchised Volvo mechanics in the Newcastle area?
Cheers

I notice a good garage not on the list
We always take our cars to C.A.R.S in Drighlington on the A58 Whitehall road Leeds/Bradford border.
Top lads, full computerised, we've had our cars looked after at cars for a long time always an good job and a member of the good garage scheme, it seems a good idea
