Needed a new glow plug. Ricky decided it would be too time consuming to discover which glow plug needed replacing so he replaced all four, and in my opinion overcharging me for each one. He didn't complete the job, leaving the engine management light illuminated on dash. My wife paid him in cash, and he didn't leave a receipt - despite numerous calls from myself requesting him to come round, finish the job and provide a receipt for the work carried out he never did, and stopped answering his phone. AVOID!Read More

So pleased he came out on a weeknight at 7.30pm, was leaving early the next morning on a long journey so needed help fast. Temporarily fixed the fault and showed me how to fix it until I could get it to my dad (a mechanic - that's where we were going). Not expensive.

I called him out having got the number from a friend who had dealt with him and recommended him. After looking at the problem he went away to get the part but I never heard from him again. I tried calling but there was no answer until I withheld the number then hey presto he answered stating he had lost my number and my address(i dont see why it mattered as I called him) he again promised to be back with the part but I didn't hear from him for a couple of days again I tried calling and again no answer so I tried of another number and hey presto he answered. To be honest about this service I would never use it again I think the job was just a little bit to much for. He probably would be ok doing minor repairs wre he can make money quickly but anything that is difficult or time consuming he isn't interested. I would never use again unreliable, dishonest.Read More

Phoned up asking for a price of a crank sensor, seemed to kmow what he was on about, I advised been honest saying it was in a awkward position but still quoated me a fair price. Having spent 2 hours on my car he advised me it was all repaired, my car still had the problem when starting up. He said I would need to clear the fault codes. 1 hour late I cleared them and guess wha..! problem still there, Took the car to a garage who advised "the sensor was not even screwed in and was loose" so the garage are having to replace the sensor as it has become damaged. No reply from call's or texts. I will be trying again to contact in 2 days when I know the outcome because leaving the car like this may have caused more damage to further parts.!Read More

I called Ricky on a Sunday afternoon as I had a problem with wrong wheel nuts used for a spare. His colleague was out within 45 mins and managed to complete the job quickly and without any further damage occuring. As a result the spare was correctly fitted and I was able to get home safely(which is 200 miles away). Naturally I was delighted I could get home and even more pleased when he charged me a lot less than I had been quoted by a mobile trye company. Ricky and his colleague were courteous and friendly and can be completely trusted to give an honest opinion of work needed. I would recommend their company to all.Read More

I called Ricky because my headlight would not work - I knew it wasn't the bulb and it had already been in to a garage who failed to find the fault. He came out that evening to suit my work arrangements, and returned the same evening after he had got the part he needed to sort it, all for a very reasonable charge. Now works fine. Would definitely use again and recommend to others.

I called Ricky out today as my car wouldn't start. Within 20 minutes like the other reviews mentions he turns up. He suggests it's the battery and within 1hr he is back with a new one and fits it. Excellent service and price.

I called Ricky after making a fatal mistake in putting diesel in my girlfriends car. Distressed and distraught I called Ricky. I put me at ease and called the same day even though it was past 10pm! Fixed it and my life could begin again! A small problem emerged and Ricky came back and rectified it. What can I say but BRILLIANT! Peter F
