This is our second review of Halfords autocentre. Our second car required an M.O.T. yet again Halfords were just superb! We knew there were problems with the car but Halfords had the whole lot fixed at a very reasonable price and ready by the end of the day. We are more than happy on both occasions of the quality of work and especially the customer service. WELL DONE HALFORDS!!!

Entrance wasn't clearly marked so entered through the garage. I called the reception phone number and left it ringing for nearly 6 minutes until i got some attention. Staff told me i used the wrong door which does't set off the buzzer. They also pointed out a sign that says 'no entry' on the door I used...unfortunately you can't read the sign until you're in the reception as it's on the wrong side of the door!!!! Rant over - the rest of the experience was as expected; so tires fitted in good time and the staff were friendly. Booked via ASDA.

Managed to get the car my booked in when I wanted. Received calls and quotation for work to be done - paid exactly what I had been quoted. No waiting to be seen when I was in the office.

Two rear tyres fitted , good price and they checked my brakes at the same time . Will use halfords again.

I made my booking online on the 9/2/15 for MOT & Interim Service for the 14/2/15 for 1pm and received a booking confirmation by email, luckily!. When I arrived at Halfords half an hour before as it suggests online, I was told that my booking was not on their computer diary and someone else was registered in my booking slot. Thankfully I had taken a printout of my booking confirmation with me to prove I had made it. The Manager therefore made sure they would fit my car in that day and booked it manually onto the system, so basically a job that should only have been an hour of my time ended up being longer as my original booking had disappeared. Not overly impressed with the online booking service.

Mrs Harris

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

the staff very friendly and helpful. Fitted two tyres in no time. Ordered tyres on line and was ready when they said it would be. Prices not bad. Will use them again. Great job

Mr Scott-Laws

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I booked online the night before and got the last available booking for the following day. When I arrived they were all ready and got straight on with the MOT. It failed on a faulty bulb main beam setting that was remedied in 10 minutes. In the end they did not charge a retest fee although there was a bit of confusion over this and I came back later to pay but did not need to do a return journey. On the whole a very good service. If you book it first thing get there early to help out the mechanics.

My recent visit to Halfords at Braintree was for the annual servicing of my Honda. My car is known at this garage now and I rely on their honest appraisal and co-operative service. June Wharton

Mrs Wharton

Booked in for an air con re-gas. Took closer to 2 hours rather than the initially-quoted 1 hour and not much information on the receipt - it would've been nice to know pre- and post-gassing pressures, for example - but the service was smooth and did exactly as asked.

Mr Leyland

★ ★ ★ ★

I have recently started taking my car to this garage and have not been disappointed. The staff are very helpful and they tell you in layman terms exactly what is the situation. They do not carry out work unless they have your permission and unless it is needed.

Mr Dickens

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I booked into Halfords because of competitively priced tyres and also because I used to run a Halfords garage years ago and trusted the "brand" The service was friendly and professional, as I was waiting for 4 tyres I was offered a cup of coffee, my wheel rims turned out to be a bit corroded, they were sanded and resealed as part of the job, no additional charges despite taking longer. Very good experience

Mr Richards

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

easy to deal with, helpful and did what needed doing in the time agreed with no problems.

Mr Fookes

★ ★ ★

Had to keep calling to get updates on my vehicle. A new fuel pump was fitted to my car, the next day after driving half a mile my car broke down so over all, not a great experience!!

Mrs Thomas-Arnold

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend any one nervous about going to tyre/garage places on their own to go to Halfords.

Ms Giera

★ ★ ★

Spent 105 minutes there rather than the expected 60. Although the team were quite customer focussed they were short of staff so, obviously being short of time to spend on individual customers, had to be fairly brief in their customer interaction. The quality of work seemed good but I was a bit critical of their working practices - for the whole period whilst they worked on my DEISEL polluting care (105 minutes) they had my engine running. Not good for them or my fuel tank. So overall I'd score them 5 out of 10......

A++++ Service ! Thank you

Mrs Bones

Booked my car in for winter check and it took hours from the booking time to start it and then a few more hours to change the battery. I wouldnt have minded if i didnt book a time. Although they did check everything and advised on other things that might need doing in future.

Mr Hulme

I am satisfied with the work carried out by Halfords Autocentre Braintree and impressed with the attitude and and attention provided by their staff.

Easy experience, booked online, took the car in, they were running late only by 15 minutes. To be honest the mot was finished before the time alloted? Now thinking of using the full service option.

Mr Cole

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Found servie to be very very efficient economical and staff very polite.

Mr Argent

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

They identified the problem, told me what it was and fixed it that day. The kept me informed and cost was OK.

Tristan Hanlon

I used Halfords In Braintree for my MOT . I felt that they took an interest in me even though I had never been there before and as predicted , my car reappeared with all the checks and paperwork completed one hour later . The only complaint I had was that I did not take a coat from the car as it was colder than I realised in the waiting area.

First time using Halfords but will be using them again Very friendly, kept me informed at all times, Really pleased!!!!

Ms Hill

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Nice people to deal with plus very good price and service will def use again Many Thanks

Mr Browne

After the trauma of my car breaking down and being towed to Halfords for repair it was a pleasure to have them complete the repairs in a fast and professional manner. I honestly can't fault Halfords and can only praise them for the work undertaken and their friendly approach.

Ms McCann

Booked my car for an MOT at Halfords as I received an half price offer from my insurer. Would not usually get an MOT in what a call "franchise MOT centres" but though that it would pass with no problem so was not expecting any extra costs. Well turned out that the car was in dangerous condition, needed tyres and bunch of advisories.... when I questioned the tester and asked to have a look for myself, he was very rude and annoyed. They failed it and said that I would need to pay for a re-test!! Never heard that one before. Had the work done elsewhere , took it back, tester still really annoyed and rude driving the car at speed in the work shop and up the ramp. Anyway, carried out a full retest and didn't charge me again after all. Very stressful experience, regret not going to an independent MOT centre.

Mrs Elson

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The guys at Halfords Autocenter were great they did everything to make my mot as easy as possible from the criteria for the mot to getting me prices for bit that needed doing. They were all realy friendly and very helpful woul definatley recommend taking your car there

Mr Smith

★ ★ ★

Was impressed with the ease of choosing and ordering tyres online. Prices were really competitive. Booking a fitting slot was easy and straightforward. I was really disappointed to turn up and the day to find the tyres weren't in. They knew I was coming in but did not contact me beforehand to inform me - this was a huge inconvenience for us on this occasion.

Mr Schroder

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Halfords in Braintree provided me with a service I could trust with a warm friendly environment . I came to them with doubts from getting a quote from a different popular company who quoted me well over the odds. I voiced my concerns, they gave me a choice of affordable options with reasonable prices. I would be happy to use their services again in the future.

Miss Roberts

We broke down on the motorway and after calling halfords to check it was ok we had the car towed to them. They diagnosed and fixed the problem very quickly and for a reasonable price. Very happy with the service and will always use halfords from now on.
