Communication was poor. Had been promised a phone call after 45 minutes. One and a half hours later we phoned them and were told it had only just gone on the ramp. However, he apologised for inconvenience and he then gave us discount off the final bill.

I've been taking my car to Halfords Autocentre at Abbey Wood, Filton, Bristol for the last couple of years for servicing, repairs & MOTs, as always Jay & the team always make me feel welcome & always informative regarding my cars progress & I highly recommend this autocentre.

Mr Burling

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Excellent same day service with a free gas refill if a subsequent leak is discovered. Merc agents wanted three times the price for the same service plus I had to book an appointment with a two week waiting list.

Mr Dunlop

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

My experience was a positive one. The customer service was friendly and helpful and the service itself was fast and efficient. I was very pleased!

Ms Hedges

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Brilliant service, would reccomend and I will be using them again.

Miss Barker

Why pay branded garage prices when these guys do the same job for less money. Have had front and rear brakes, MOT, 1 new tyre and a full service here rather than at BMW, saved myself £475. Customer service has always been good so now issues there either. You may not get a shiny showroom, free cup of coffee and a biscuit but you can go to Costa on the way back, and still have saved yourself £465!

Mr James

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I booked my MOT in advance online, which was very convenient for me. I waited in comfort, enjoying the complimentary coffee, and was able to leave promptly as I had prepaid.

Mrs Fairs

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The customer service I received was exemplary. From the very first reception, through the phone calls, their recommendations and the prompt service, my experience was excellent. They even put the spacesaver tyre back properly and put the jack kit back together (which I had been unable to do). I have been recommending this branch to colleagues ever since, without hesitation. Really superb service.

So this is my 2nd visit to Halfords for an MOT. Coming straight from the school run I brought along my 8 year old son. Worried he'd be bored as we were waiting I asked if we could go to the viewing area. The staff promptly turned on the tv showing the guys at work on our car. The female assistant offered both my son and I a drink then went to get some arts and craft items to keep him occupied.My son is a very inquisitive child and the assistant was happy to answer any of his questions. As for the MOT..the car passed with flying colours. Staff were pleasant and professional at all times needless to say...I'll be back next year :-)


★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Simply outstanding! I have used this service several times previously and cannot fault the service received, attitude and approach of your staff. In my opinion, all personnel at your N Bristol (Emmachris way) branch should be recognised for levels of service that are simply exemplary. I have no hesitation what so ever with recommending your service when and where ever I can. Nice job- thank you!

Mr Coote

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Looked at car at short notice, Did what they said with minimum fuss and quicker than expected. Thanks

Mr Stafford

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Looked at a rattle underneath my car and fixed a small bracket free of charge. I know nothing about cars and they could have quite easily told me I needed work doing. I am a regular customer and always find them helpful, courteous and efficient.

Diane Craig

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Brilliant, easy, very friendly staff! Also kept to their times which I was impressed by. However as title suggests I wouldn't pay the £60 normal price as many other garages are much cheaper. I'll be Definitely come next year if sale remains on


★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The garage was obviously busy but the staff dealt with my car in a quick, friendly and efficient way. Was a bit concerned as I had reacently moved to the area and wasn't sure where to go for my MOT. I chose Halfords as they seem the go to people for repairs and they had a good price. I was definately not disappointed. There was no fuss, I left my car, made sure it was okay to come back in an hour and when I did return it was all done and ready to go. Lots of smiles and a friendly customer service. I expect to see them at the same time next year.

Ms Highton

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

An excellent service which was flexible and kept me informed of the progress of the work on my car

Mr McCallion

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We have used this autocentre for a few years and they always make us feel important even though they are incredibly busy. The staff take the time to make you feel welcome and that you fully understand any work that needs to be done. The staff also know that people are living on budgets at the moment and if they can, they discuss maintenance to your car in an order of priority, whether things need fixing immediately or if they can be fixed over a couple of months. Excellent service and expertise.

Called in the morning for a quote, dropped off at 1pm and had all 4 brake discs and pads replaced, with lifetime supply of pads and the car back by 4pm. Very happy with service.

Mr Edwards

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I needed two new tyres to be fitted to my car at very late notice and approached Halfords in the hope that they could accommodate me. I spoke to Jay who was extremely helpful and pleased to order the tyres for that afternoon. I returned later that afternoon to find the work completed, and to the pre-agreed price. I would definitely recommend Halfords, Abbey Wood, Bristol, for your motoring needs, particularly Jay, who is very efficient, professional and courteous - a pleasure to do business with!

Mrs Warfield

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Very helpful! Booked only for brake check but they manage to check other issues of my car, already recommended Halfords service to my friend.

Mr Guesa

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Professional quick service, very satisfied customer

Richard Walker

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Bought my tyres from Asda, who confirmed a different date to halfords compared to me - very unhelpful. Fortunately, the halfords people were still able to carry out the work on 'my ' day so no problem.

Mr Bisby

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Visited depot in north Bristol to have two new rear tyres fitted to my Carrera 4S. Was looked after extremely well, very courteous staff and follow up query was dealt with in a professional and quick manner. I will definitely be coming back.

Mr Sturley

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Very considerate and helpful team. Jake at the reception is exemplary.

Mr Nama

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Excellent and prompt service. Best prices also.


★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Very easy to book online with half hour time slots, arrived at reception very friendly and efficient checked details and promised to ring back within the hour. On time and collected car EXCELLENT SERVICE ALL ROUND.

Mr Williams

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The booking process online is easy and you know the price before you arrive. Staff are friendly and helpful and keep you updated of progress during the work.

Mr Goodwin

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Just had MOT on 12 year old low mileage Nissan Micra. I paid exactly what I was quoted. Good Customer Service and Car ready on time. Would recommend !

Mr O'Donovan

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I would feel confident to go to this garage again for any problems with my car.

Ms Lipscombe

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

A last minute request for a new tyre before I travelled to Cornwall for New Year. As always everyone was so helpful and efficient and got me on the road in plenty of time.

Miss Wedlock

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Booked car in for full service, very happy, staff were friendly, will use them again.

Ms Starkey

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I took my car here for an mot and was really pleased with the service I received. While I was waiting for the necessary work to be done with my partner and two year old, the reception staff were very friendly and offered us tea and coffee and kept us informed of when the parts arrived and the progress. I would highly recommend to friends and family and will be back here in the future.

Miss Box

★ ★ ★ ★

Have had two call outs to AA with flat battery and their patrolmen had recommended a new battery. Knew there was a Halfords close at Filton so just turned up - didn't have battery in stock but Eurocarparts is opposite so they could get one quickly. Came back by appointment @ 13:45 and by 13:55 job was complete. I did ask them to look at my CD autochanger which is jammed but they couldn't fix it quickly which was a pity. My only other disappointment was the 5% discount for an AA member-I would have expected it to be higher than that.

Mr Edwards

★ ★ ★

I recently booked my car in for a service at the Filton centre in Bristol. I asked them specifically to check my rear tyre on the driver side since I have to fill this with air every 2-3 days. When I came to collect my car, the gentleman at the reception said that they had checked it but couldn?t find anything but to bring the car back if it persists. I went to my local kwik fit garage in Reading (as I live in Reading) and they spotted the problem immediately. There was a large nail in the tyre which was glaringly obvious (I have pictures to prove this) and so I am amazed that no one spotted this! I suspect that either they didn?t check properly or simply couldn?t be bothered and just wanted to rush my service through so that they can meet their targets. I suspect that they didn?t have time to check it. If this is the case I would?ve appreciated if they had told me this rather than lying to me.

Mr Panwar

Thanks to Jason who was friendly and helpful.

Mr richard Harrop

★ ★ ★ ★

Good comprehensive report...only slight hesitation in that they could have shown me the faults on the car, but polite good service and on time.

Mr Rosen

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Very impressed with the fast efficient service. Ready and waiting with keys handed to me when i arrived back an hour after dropping the car off. No pressure to have extra work done. Excellent online booking service and payment in advance saves time. Definitely recommend Halford and use them again

Ms Munro

Problem occurred and could not book online. Rang centrecand the honoured online price and fix car same day.

Mr C..

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Excellent service as always. Full confidence in the staff and always polite and helpful. I always have my car service and MOT there

Mr Twyford

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Quick efficient and started the work at the time I had booked

Mr Wood

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I have used Halfords Autocentres twice now and both times, they staff have been extremely helpful and friendly. The first time, I thought my tyre had a leak. It turned out that the tyre was fine but the team still cleaned it and put a sealant around the inner edge to help maintain type pressure, FOR FREE!!! I then took my car in for it's MOT, the first time I've done it myself and the guys there were just so helpful and spent a long time talking me through issues my car might be having. Could not recommend them more.


★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Excellent service from the moment they received my order. They phoned to check I had ordered the rights tyres rather than just ordering, My appointment was 8.30am and work started promptly at said time and I was out by 9. An all round excellent service,

Mr Knighton

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Halfords were the closest MOT centre to my work, they were happy for me to leave my car with them all day while I was at work. The on line booking system was easy to use and effective. The booking in process was swift and painless. My car passed its MOT, and I was a happy customer. I will definitely use Halfords for my MOT again.

Mrs Smyth

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I have just bought a second hand car which came with 2 flat tyres, I took it to the garage in anticipation of paying about £90, however the very friendly team advised me they could repair the tyres for a lot cheaper! The team the offered me a free safety check (no pressure/no hard sell), in which I took and was overall extremely happy with the service and price. I didn't feel 'ripped off' like I do with other garages I had been to in the past and felt that they done a fantastic job.


★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The whole process was very easy and efficient and at a very good price.

Mr Pratt

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Booking in was prompt and fuss-free. Time estimates were good. I was not left hanging about longer than expected. Prices were reasonable and staff were courteous and helpful. I would definitely go back.


★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I decided recently to put my car in for an MOT at Halfords Autocentre (Filton, Bristol). I could not have been happier with the service I received. I will definitely go back and have no hesitation in recommending them. A good experience from start to finish. Well done Halfords!

Mr Bourke

We have been taking our family cars to Halfords for several years and have always had very good service. This visit the customer service was no where near as good, from the initial dropping off of the car, phone call regarding other work and confusion re collection.

Mrs Finn

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

They completed the MOT exactly as scheduled and contacted me to let me know it was complete, I had no waiting around, it was a very professional service. I would use again.

Mr Bean

★ ★ ★

A cheap mot but the office staff were a bit clueless and not that bothered. If your feeling patient and have time to spare then use them otherwise avoid. The mechanics seemed confident and was helpful, shame he was let down by the support staff.

Mr Taylor

★ ★ ★ ★

Had some issues while booking online (credit card payment). overally ok, took about 1 hour to complet it, very nice service man.


★ ★ ★ ★

Excellent, quick, friendly service. Only thing missing was the lack of a confirmation email when booking online.
