I had to call to find out if my car had or hadn't passed the MOT. I find this unacceptable and Dan the assistant manager wasn't helpful at all when I called. He said, we're finding out prices before we call you. How about calling me to let me know before finding the prices. I found his whole attitude quite rude.

I'm a retired engineer, who's done a fair share of auto mechanics myself havng been involved with road rally racing in my younger days. So I know a thing or two about the subject. As expected I've always done my own servicing and repairs, but age has taken it's toll and now I must rely on younger mechanics to do what I use to. Needless to say I've had my run ins with shoddy people doing shoddy work on my car, but so far the people at my Basingstoke branch have not given me reason to doubt their abilites and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good place to get their car serviced,repaired, and MOT-ed.

Anne Miles

Very pleased with the job carried out by the technicians and very good customer service.

Mr Chavagnan

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Staff were very friendly and ultimately realistic about timings. Due to my wife's working hours in usually under time constraints to get the car in and out, but the guys in the garage give a good margin for work so you can plan it into your day. They are all respectable gentlemen and I wouldn't take my car anywhere else. Very good vale for money, and trust in te engineers. Itpays a lot when it's your kids in the car too x

Mr Kenning

Had two front tyres replaced, though they had not been delivered when I dropped the car off it was not an issue. Having left my car I received a call once the work had been completed and collected when convenient for myself. Fast, efficient & hassle free.

Ms E

Hassle free service - booked and paid online at good price and tyres were fitted without issues few days later at local autocentre - would recommend.

Garage did not even make an attempt to correct a very minor adjustment to the hand brake and failed the car even though I had agreed that any minor works required should be carried out. The garageAlso informed me That they had adjusted my headlights but when I took the car to another test centre following the 10 minutes it took to adjust the hand brake I was advised my head lights were out of alinement. Decided there and then that I done the right thing in paying for a new MOT and not going back to Halfords for the retest. Customer Service rating- not acceptable

The work was done effectively and I was rung as soon as my car had finished it's MOT. They also gave me a quote on my advisory items which was extremely helpful. It was very cheap and efficient and I would definitely use them again.

Ms Holland

I was impressed with halfords really great value MOT service. I booked and pre paid online. However I took time off work and drove 30 minutes to the halfords autocentre in Acton. However, when I got there the door to the garage was stuck and they were waiting for the emergency services to come and fix it. I wasn't happy that no one had called me to explain the situation otherwise I would have happy changed my appointment. The manager did end up finding another autocentre for me to use and did apologise and resolve the problem. I ended up taking it to baskingstoke and they did a great job. Overall I was happy with the service

Ms Balfour-Evans

Had mot done great service as per usual flew through as normal

Mr Crisp

★ ★ ★ ★

I needed an urgent MOT and the local Halfords Auto Centre was the only place that could do the MOT that day. I booked the slot on-line at 9am for 10.30. In fact they were running late by 20 mins due to a previous customer turning up late so it took a bit longer to get sorted but it shows they don't turn people away who get delayed.

Mr Simpson

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Had already taken my car to be MOT'd at another garage and it had failed.Once I'd had the repairs done I booked my car in with Halfords as, to be honest, I didn't trust the previous garage, (my son is a mechanic and we knew what was needed to get the car through the test but they'd listed stuff which would have cost a fortune but wasn't necessary). Halfords passed the car with no mention of the work garage #1 had mentioned! The only thing that was needed was one headlamp realeignment which they did for me there and then. I will definitely take my car back. The only grumble was that they didn't contact me to make sure I had the funds on me for the job but it wasn't a huge problem as it only cost £14. Excellent service and friendly staff.

Very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable team. Really do seem to go the extra mile. Car repairs are extremely expensive and often at an very I convenient time! So its great to be treated so well and to be able to trust and to get a very fair deal.

Mr Roper

Booked a brake check, very easy, arrived, needed new brakes, fitted in two hrs, best thing, they are now FREE for life, brilliant.

Mrs Taylor

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

This was very good service for an MOT. Booking was easy and the appointment was met on time. A minor problem was sorted and the retest done quickly. The cost of the whole exercise was extremely reasonable.

Tony Barden

30th December, I had a problem with frozen brakes. With a long trip ahead of me on New Years Eve I need to make sure they where sorted so I booked online for brakes test at 10:30am on the 31st December. I arrived promptly at 10:30am only to be told the car wouldn't get on the ramp for at least another 2hours, which was a bit worrying. Thankfully I was able to get home and about 2.5hours later got a call to say that the disc and pads would need replaced ASAP. Cost of £197 and could be done straight away. I was able to pick up the car at 4pm and was able to drive to my destination in time for New Year Eve. All in all not a bad service.

Mr Hughes

Staff was friendly and very helpful. Will definitely call again!

Ms Marsburg

★ ★ ★ ★

Like most garage experiences, a lot is down to the person you deal with and I have a lot of time for one of the two Brians who works here. He explains everything without sounding patronising and helps you assess whether work needs doing. Their prices seem reasonable and they manage to keep to whatever time they have allowed, so there are no unnecessary delays. Some seating available but a coffee machine would make all the difference (although their is a Morrisons quite close by with a restaurant). If you need to pay by Amex you need to book and pay online.

Ms Dalton

★ ★ ★ ★

Cramped shabby waiting area but staff all customer focussed and efficient. A good experience.

Mr Stemp

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Drove in - signed in- went for a coffee - came back done and dusted

Mr Underwood

Mrs Craig

From initial booking through to collecting my vehicle, all members of the team were helpful and polite. No hidden costs and the times were as agreed.

Mr Blackmore

Dionne Redmond

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I booked my mot the night before, got a time I wanted at a fantastic price! The car failed on silly things that were quickly and easily rectified and I had a legal car within 2 hrs!

Mrs Eastman

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I have no issues with this garage. I booked in for a service and MOT online at very short notice and even though I turned up late they still got the job done with no fuss. Very impressed.

Mr Fry

★ ★ ★ ★

Car received MOT satisfactorily. Unable to wait for car while being serviced as no seating area or other facilities as with practically all other suppliers.

Mr Dunne

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I was so pleased with my MOT and subsequent repairs needed. I was kept fully informed and have finally found a garage that I would go back to as the price I paid was exactly what was quoted.

Ms Goldson

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I had an .M.O.T, and although the car passed I was advised that the rear tyres were getting very worn, and should be replaced soon, a fact I was already aware of, but then they quoted an outstanding price to replace them, and I ordered them there and then, and had them fitted a couple of days later, they could have done it same day, but I had work commitments, so came back 2 days later. Absolutely delighted, car is now all ready for our trip to Cornwall next month. Thanks, Halfords Autocentre Basingstoke, you never let me down.
