Excellent service from Halfords as always. As a young woman I was concerned about being ripped off for all I was worth with my car. However I have been back three times now and Keith at Halfords in Canterbury has always been very honest, helpful and friendly and I felt he genuinely had my best interests at heart. The paperwork is always at the ready when I drop the keys off and I am kept fully informed on any work that needs doing and costs. Work has always been carried out the same day and I've been able to pick the car up after three hours for an MOT and service (all works included!) I have taken two different cars to Halfords now and have received great advice on both. Keep up the good work chaps!

I have an old Kia sorento 53 plate, it's petrol and still works hard for a living.....this the third time it's been to halfords , once for a headlight bulb that blew, they changed it for a small fee and took their guys moments to change despite it requiring the air filter and light unit having to be removed.....them they also checked the oil.....and filled my window screen washer up with premixed screen wash.....how good was that.....now the second was for a mid range service and MOT all for a very reasonable charge , I could not have purchased the oil and filters much less .....all in a fantastic deal and service....then last weekend an air con re gas and new drive belt.....yet again a fixed price that was less than half I had been quoted at a garage.....I guess the long and short of my experience is that the customer service, price and overal experience of Andy and his team at Canterbury is beyond what I expected every time....oh and the guys that change the bulb at Herne Bay were spot on.....all of you are fantastic....thank....oh and noticed that halfords are said to be a top rated company to work for so I asked the guys what it is really like....they without hesitation relied it's as said , just a good company to work for....how good is that in this day and age that their are still companies out there that manage to get it so right on every level.....cheers guys and halfords....a trusted and trustworthy company....

Having taken my car to many places for work to be carried out I would highly recommend Halford auto centre. The staff are friendly, helpful and make me feel that I can trust them fully to do a good job. They were efficient, kept in touch at every stage with information and costs with no hard sell. Highly recommend.

The whole experience of getting my car's MoT done was excellent. I received a letter offering me an MoT for 30 so I rang up and booked - the person on the phone was very polite and friendly. I took my car in before work and dropped it off - the process was very speedy. I received a phone call to let me know that the work had been carried out and that it could be picked up. I picked it up after work and was not kept waiting. The car was clean, there were no dirty hand prints or oily smells in the car which has happened to me in the past with other MoT centres! The employee called me Madam which I thought was very polite and courteous. I would recommend Halfords and will definitely be going back there for repairs and future MoTs. In fact, I have already recommended them to my mum.

I have a 9 year old Mercedes and the standard of customer service I receive at the Canterbury Halfords Auto-centre is up there with Mercedes on a good day. For the past 3 years I have had my cars MOT done here and I wouldn't go anywhere else, even if they beat Halfords highly competitive prices. My compliments to the manager of the Canterbury centre for doing a brilliant job.

Mr Fawcett

Car booked in for MOT easily and all according to plan and timing. Friendly and helpful staff at centre and comfortable place to wait. Complimentary tea/coffee machine. Just to add, this was at Canterbury autocentre. This is my seventh MOT there and they have been fair in the past, at one time remedying a little fault cheaply so the MOT pass could be issued without the need for me to return. Thanks folks there.

Mr Moor

Always get really good service from the team at my local Halfords autocentre. Been using them for years. This service etc was good value and done without issue

Mr Scott

I booked in for an interim service knowing that my brakes were not happy (son having driven 5 miles with the handbrake on). Halford were helpful, rang at the time that asked, and pointed out 4 other faults as well as the brakes. The extra work was 200. The car was ready when I asked and they explained exactly what they had done very patiently.

Mrs Goudie

I had my car serviced and MOT'd locally and was very impressed with the speed and professionalism shown. Price was excellent with no hidden costs. Will be booking my second car in for a service shortly.

Third year I have used AutoCentre for my service. This time I booked a major service, fixed price, for my Grand Scenic. Dropped off and headed into town for a day with the kids. Centre called by courtesy when the service was complete - and again when ready to pick up. Very efficient, and useful advisories - no feeling that they were looking for things to get extra work, which I have seen at other places. Car has raised its fuel economy by 15mpg since the service - an amazing difference - I swear this diesel car is quieter than it was when it was first purchased!

My car needed an MOT and service, Keith called me to say that I needed an additional piece of work carried out, he told me how much it would cost and how much time it would take. When I collected my car it was all serviced, MOT'd and the additional work was completed. Keith was friendly and efficient and a good member of staff. Thanks.

Booked car in for a service/MOT/ and new brake discs and pads. Very efficient booking in arrangements. Welcome was excellent when taking in the car. Phone call to me when work done....(.sometimes people say they'll call back but never do !) Car all ready to drive away after paying. Paperwork completed efficiently. I have had work done by Halfords before and will continue to use them.

Pleasant and polite customer service at the autocentre. Easy to book online. Up-front with costs and what needed to be done in order to pass the MOT, very helpful and found the most reasonable prices for parts. Managed to fit me in the next day for MOT repairs. Will definitely use again next year!

Mr Heath

I go to Halfords as the staff there are polite and helpful. Keith gives me clear, sound advice but doesn't try to pull the wool over my eyes or get me to have work done that isn't necessary. They are flexible about timings to fit around my requirements.

Halfords Autocentre Canterbury were very helpful in dealing with a clutch which had started to fail. They managed to fit it in at short notice and replace the faulty master cylinder.
