I have used these guys for years – always provide an excellent, honest and well-priced service and very convenient location, ie leave the car there and hop on the train to work.

Both my husband and I have been provided with supremo advice and service and will definitely be using Lake Motors for servicing our vehicles. Genuine, professional and on to it mechanics. Thanks Barry and Chris!

I am doing big mileages at the moment so needed to get the tyres checked. I choose Lake Auto Services because their workshop is very neat and tidy and I thought they would take as much care in their work as they do in their workshop. They gave me a quote for two new tyres and a wheel balance and did the job quickly and professionally. They also brought to my attention the fact that the car was overdue for a service, not pushing for the job, just concerned if I was doing lots of miles I should get it done. I checked and they were correct so they then did the car service. All done cheerfully, at a reasonable price and in a professional manner. I feel this garage can be trusted to do a good job, they take pride in their work and I have since been back for a car warrant. Thank you, Lake Auto Services.
