Brilliant service, friendly staff, drop off for mot, pick up half an hour later, job done. What else can I ask for?

Mr Jac

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Customer service was excellent. Easy to book up MOT and repairs. Polite and honest staff. Repairs and MOT done in a timely manner - very happy!!!

Mrs Evans

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Booked an mot online a couple of days before I wanted to have it done. The booking indicated I could leave my car any time before my appointment. I came 5 min late but it wasn't a problem. I left my car and went to nearby Morrisons for a coffee and cake. An hour later I returnet to find my car failed on emmissions and a faulty bulb. I was offerred to bring the car the day after for checks, but I took it to a local garage I had been before. They fixed my exhaust and replaced the faulty bulb. I phoned up Halfords AC the day after to book a retest. They told me just to come in. An hour later I brought my car for a retest and went to the Morrisons for lunch. Came back and was issued a brand new Mot. Recommended!

I couldn't expect better - Friendly, knowledgeable & quick! Would definitely use again :)

Miss Breakspear

★ ★ ★

Ordering and fitting process very smooth. Unfortunately, when I got home, I discovered that the tyres that had been fitted were NOT the ones that I had ordered. Arranged to get the correct tyres fitted the next day. Although this was quick and easy also, I didn't receive any apology for the inconvenience of having to drive into Reading once again - just a "supplier sent wrong tyres". Maybe naive of me to think that Halfords would have checked what they fitted against what was ordered....

Friendy service, carried out promptly. Would recommend this garage.

Bruce Field

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Excellent service, great price and got put on the brakes for life service - which is one of the best deals I've ever seen at a garage.

Mr Darby

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I had a major service for my car booked through the internet. I left my car to them and received a phone call that the car was ready to go by the afternoon. Good thorough job.

Mr Kalogiannis

★ ★ ★

I was booked through Asda for a tyre replacement, when i arrived I requested a headlamp re-alignment to which the receptionist said he would do his best to fit it in. (takes about 10 minutes) when called to counter i asked if alignment had been done to which the reply was "oh we couldn't do it cause the bay was being used. Why didn't they keep me informed instead of just presenting me with the bill for the tyre and no mention or apology for not being able to carry out the re-alignment. Not the fact they couldn't do it but the fact that they couldn't inform me. not the first time I have had problems with halfords. Disgruntled

Mr Marcham

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I have been coming to Halfords for a few years now for my MOT and they are always friendly and helpful. In previous places where I have had my MOT I have felt like they were trying to pull a fast one over me as I am a woman! Have never felt like that with Halfords and they were recommended to me by my mother. I have also recommended them to my partner and friends and know that they have experienced the same service.

Bought a new tyre through Asdatyres and had it fitted at Halfords, great price and excellent service, will use them again and recommend the service highly.

Mr Short

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Friendly, polite and welcoming

Ms Page

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Only booked in,(online, very simple), for a discounted MoT, which was carried out efficiently and on time. Good staff. Read a book in the waiting room while it was being done. Toilet was available, coffee machine would have been good, but could have got something nearby if I'd been desperate. Highly recommended. If the Halfords shop had been on site, I would probably have spent more money in there while I waited. Maybe future sites could combine the two?

Mr Jackson

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I first went to the halfords autocentre not realising I would have to order the tyres online, but the staff were very kind and assessed my tyres so that I knew exactly what to order. On the day of the fitting my car was seen to straight away and I had an amusing 45 minute wait in the waiting area (which is clean and comfortable) with the staff, I think the person in charge's name was Adam, keeping me entertained. It was really great to see people with such great personalities and it made the experience of waiting much quicker. I would definitely recommend this autocentre to friends and will be going again.

Miss Demarchi

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Professional staff and good customer service. MOT was done well in advertised time and there was no need to wait more than agreed time. Inspection notices were given for things to look out in the near future.

Ollie H

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Great service, great value for money if you need new tyres would highly recommend

Ms Keane

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Excellent service

Mr Pandey

★ ★ ★ ★

This is the first time I have used Halfords. With any garage, I always get a bit concerned that I am going to get 'ripped-off'. My visit and service I received at this garage was different. Thanks to all the mechanics.

Mr Brown

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I nearly cocked up my MoT by going to the wrong place. My fault, I got two different branches of Halfords mixed up! But no problem - they kindly phoned ahead for me and warned the other branch I'd be a little late. When I got there, the guy knew who I was before I'd had a chance to explain. So I went off for a coffee while my MoT was carried out rapidly and efficiently, and at a very good price. I couldn't really ask for more - the experience was completely painless and all I can say is: the more branches, the better!

Mr Terry

★ ★ ★ ★

Good customer service. Let me know price early before they start the job. Sometime they give me good deal very happy customer.

Mr Ale

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The best services I have ever received. Fast, reliable and of the highest standard. well done Halfords Autocentres and please keep delivering your good work to us. Thank you indeed

Mrs Garside

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The gentlemen at Halfords went above and beyond their call of duty. They were polite and welcoming from the moment I arrived. Service was provided to me with a smile and in such a way that I felt that I was their immediate concern. I cannot commend the two shining examples of gentlemen at reception and I can only imagine how brilliant the team they represent are. Their service to me was impecable and in me they have made a customer for life.

Mr Ahmed

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

great service, very efficient

Ms Collier

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Impressive service. Online booking was easy to use and gave a wide range of time slots to choose from. Arrived for the MOT went straight in no wait, no hassle. Took my keys! Within the hour I received a call from the lad serving me and told me to pop in and pick the car up. Paperwork all ready for my arrival. All in all took just over an hour from start to finish. Not to mention it is cheaper than other places for MOT. I certainly wont be going anywhere else next year.

Benjani

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

No problem at all, would recommend to anyone wanting a service and MOT. None of that 'Car need that and fixing' for unnecessary work, completed a full service and MOT within three hours. Saved 70% of what I would have been charged at the dealer where brought my car from. Very friendly and helpful. Will be using again next year for sure.

Kim

Mr Chen

On-line booking confirmation gave time 'before 1:00pm. I turned up at 12:50 to be told the booking was 16:00. I should have received a call but I didn't. I never got a confirmation email either. The reservation process seems to be broken. On returning to the auto centre at 16:00 the reception process was simple, courteous and cheerful - full marks. The MOT was carried out efficiently and within the estimated time - full marks again.

They are a really great bunch of guys down at Long Barn Lane. Theyve looked after my car/s for a few years now, and on this occasion as on each before, they were candid with me about issues, without incurring unecessary expenses. Its amazing how quickly they will take the car in when i ring, and i usually know the extent of any issues/costs same day. I trust them to look after me, and happily recommend them to my friends Thanks!

Mr Hogg

Got an appointment for tyre change (rear ones only) , and I opted in for wheel alignment. Only the guy who drove the car told me that they can do the alignment only on the front wheel, at the counter they were happy to do it... It took more than 40 minutes to swap the front ones with the rears, and put the new tires up in the front. I saw the car left alone for 15mins, they were not in a rush at all. After all i got the service and the result is good, but there is room for improvement.
