Booked and paid for my Mini to have its aircon serviced online. Dropped the car off first thing and it was done an hour and a half later, no dramas. Air-con working a treat now.

Mr Shaw

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Service was excellent, staff were friendly and polite. Tyre change was done quickly. Would happily use again

Ms Botterill

★ ★ ★ ★

The staff at Halfords Autocentre were very helpful and efficient as always. However the tyre change didn't happen as scheduled as the ordered tyres didn't arrive on time. Halfords made alternative arrangements and did the job the same day.


★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Satisfactory, I was kept informed at all times.

Mr Boyle

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Booked through Asda tyres and got a cheaper price. Service at Halfords Bedford was very good. All done in 30minutes or so. No issues. Would use again.

Very smooth process from purchasing the tyres online to booking an appointment at my local autocentre. On arrival very professional and friendly service. Excellent communication notifying me when the car was ready for collection. Would use again.

Slick operation. Drove in, indicated which tyres needed to be changed. Got a call an hour later to say work was complete. Staff worked around my schedule so didn't need to spend any time in the waiting room. Will use again.

Mr Haseman

Mr Buoso

I used the online system to book a fitting slot to have a tyre replaced on my car. when I arrived at the Midland Rd, Bedford branch I was asked for my phone number and they would ring me when the work was complete sometime during the afternoon. It clearly says on the online site and on my booking receipt that I was booking a fitting time slot (1 hour), the manager disagreed with me and said he would get the work done as soon as possible. The online website needs to make it very clear to customers that even though you have booked a time slot for work to be carried out on your car, the work may not be done during that period of time. Does defeat the object of booking in advance or a particular time you need the work doing. In future I will not bother booking and just turn up at the dept. I did wait at the dept for the work to be completed and did not have to wait long and the work was excellent. Thank You

Mr Taylor

Mr Lay

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Staff excellent, car fine and OK for another year. The main gripe is getting to and from the location, in the centre of a busy town dealing with rush hour traffic.

J Jones

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Arranged for fitting of 4 new tyres. Great service and communications. Thanks

Mr Davis

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

What can I say? It is nice to have gone somewhere were not only do you feel that you are not being ripped off but also that the people there actually care for the customers. Really couldn't fault anything about the service provided and would like to thank Emma for sorting out all the problems caused by Evans Halshaw on my behalf. 5 Star service, will be returning

Mr Beaton

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The staff were extremely professional whilst being relaxed and welcoming even for 08:30 Monday, rainy morning. MOT for 04 Focus, realised on route a headlight bulb had gone, but they replaced for me within MOT time slot and only charge parts ... fantastic customer service. I would recommend and will also be returning in a few months with my wife's car.

Mr Burke

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Halfords Autocentre in Bedford made my MOT experience drama less. Great welcome from reception, efficient friendly service and a great price.

Kim Sergeant

★ ★ ★

Web site took payment for tyres that weren't available. Was told that a refund would take five days and so was forced to buy more expensive tyres.

Mr Hunt

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Done and dusted in a quick time, staff very friendly.

Ms Santis

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I had an m.o.t carried out on my car, it was done in a professional manner and completed in the time given. The staff were polite,friendly and very helpful, I would go to Halfords again.

Mr Wilson

★ ★ ★ ★

i brought my car in for an mot.i was served very efficiently by a very friendly lady. however the car failed and needed work doing. Halfords quoted me about 312. I declined this and got the work done elsewhere for 120. it may be tempting to say.."go ahead" when they quote you for extra work due to the inconvenience of taking your car elsewhere, but in my opinion it is worth the hassle. when I returned a week later, they were their usual efficient selves. car passed no problems and service with a smile. 5 stars for mot. 2 stars for price of extra work

Mr McGuinness

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I was so impressed with the MOT servie that was supplied by the Midland Road Bedford garage. I would recommend to a friend and will use them again in a heartbeat . The manager and his assistant were really friendly and helpful Top class service!!

Nikki Hughes

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Speedy and attentive service with possibly the greatest customer service assistant. Emma is a credit to your company.

Mr Jonah Jones

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Booked and paid online, dropped off car at allotted time and had a phone call about 90 mins later to collect. Really quick and staff were friendly and polite. Cannot fault service- will be bringing my car back here again.

Timothy D

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I was able to drop off my car take quick walk into town for a costa then back to pick up my car all in less than an hour. Oh and even had time to buy something special..

Yvonne Penfold

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

All went like a clock-work. Professional! Will always use and recommend their services.


★ ★ ★ ★

Efficient and professional

Mr Sim

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

after realising i went to the wrong site i arrived parking looked a bit of a headache as the sire is surrounded by double yellow lines but i found a parking bay. Quick service from staff informed they would call if there were any issues or when car was done. true to their word they called, again quick service for payment. very satisfied all round, hope you send me a discounted MOT again next year. Only thing i would say it may be of help if when you pay staff log any other persons in household with vehicles so you can send them promotional MOT's too. no one wants to pay full price as everyone is looking for DISCOUNTED MOT

Mrs Glen

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

You should definitely give halfords autocentres try. I got a great deal on my MOT by booking online, they were very accommodating when i had to make a last minute change to my booking and they were really quick to get back to me when they had finished.

Mr Oates

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I was greeted by a very friendly lady who took my details and later after the mot called me to say the job was done. Thoroughly recommend


★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Speedy service at a cost that is affordable

Mr Woodbyrne

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

My reason for visiting was to have an mot done on my car. I booked the test only the night before and got a slot at a very convenient time. When I went in the man working was very friendly, referred to me by my last name- which is always nice- and informed me on what to do next. My only issue was that I didn't get a call to let me know when it was ready and had to ring them up myself to find out after waiting over an hour and a half. When I went to pick my car up the blonde girl who returned my keys to me was a delight. Overall I was very happy with the service, but just a shame about the lack of phone call.

Miss Fairclough

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Well, as you know my knowledge on cars is somewhat limited but when I arrived at the workshop I was greeted by a very friendly lady (Emma Dawson) who was curtious for an early morning appointment and gave assurance she would call within the hour and let me know how the MOT went, which is exactly what she did! You know garages can be a daunting place for us females but my experience past and present has only been a stress free, efficient and not to costly. Oh and don't forget I'm talking about the Midland Road gargage!

Mrs Bubbins

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

This didn't feel like a national company, It felt like a family run garage that you know and trust. I've found my mot centre!
