Booked my car in for an MOT and service but told them I was looking to sell the car. They were very honest and told me some items I could leave doing as the car still passed the MOT. So didn't make me spend extra money when I'm selling the car. As always very friendly and chatty.

Despite me being exceedingly fussy about my new Mercedes, I had no concerns in it being serviced at the Kingswood in Bristol branch. The manager Martyn ensured that a few spacific instructions were followed and the customer service I received was outstanding. All of my cars go there for anything now.

Very pleasant staff, even made me a cup of coffee whilst I waited in anticipation of my car having a MOT. My car passed, and when they gave me the advisories, they gave me prices of what it would be should I have them do the work, which I thought was handed, as I then knew how much It would cost me. They were not pushy at all. I would defineately recommend them , and booking the test on line was a bonus.

I booked for regular service. Everything went as it should. Staff were helpful and explained the options to me. Then later I got a call to again to tell me how things were, like depth of brake pads and discs,state of tyres etc. They discussed what was needed and there was no pressure to get things done which did not need it. I will certainly book my car in there again for whatever it needs

Recieved great service from the centre. I got my MOT and Serivice done earlier that year and went back to get the rest completed. Offered great times, and kept me up to date with the car and prices

Got a great deal - 29 for MoT. Booked it online easily. Found Halfords centre 5 minute walk from my office so took car in on a work day. An hour later I was called to say it had been seen and there were no problems. Very efficient. Good customer service and great value.

From my initial phone call to the completion of the job, I have nothing but praise for the team at Kingswood.


★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Good, quick, friendly service.

Easily booked on the website which is fairly straight forward to use. They were bang on time with the MOT even though they were very busy. I will be getting my MOT done here from now on. Only slight issue was trying to find a parking space when I first got there but It really was no problem.

Service good but failed to have required oil available leading to two hour delay. Cost for disc and pads not good saved 70 pounds going elsewhere

Halfords Autocentre in Kingswood did my service and MoT to a good standard. They explained everything over the phone once the service had been done and provided a price list of the work recommended. The only downside was that my car was left dirty. Greasy hand prints all over the bonnet and doors and inside on the steering wheel and gear stick.

Ford Mondeo (2012) 2.0l TDCi (163bhp) Auto Estate. Booked in for 0830 on Monday 30th March 2015 at the Bristol Kingswood Centre for MOT and full service. Car was received on time and was all complete and finished by 1300. Excellent communication on arrival and the work carried out was first rate. There is a noticeable improvement in the performance of the car and all the work requested was carried out. They were honest enough to inform me that they could not carry out the auto transmission fluid and filter change due to the specialist nature of the job. Overall I was completely satisfied with the customer service and the efficient and thorough way the work was done.

Mr Thompson

Great service as always, would reccomend halfords to my friends

Mrs Nolan

As a lone female with and old banger that hadn't been driven for 3 months, I was nervous of being ripped off. The guys were really helpful, had the MOT done within the hour and only needed 2 new bulbs to pass. They called to check first and went ahead so they could pass the car. Very friendly and offered advice about a separate problem. Booked me in for a free check to diagnose what is wrong. Can't say fairer than that! Every confidence in using them in future.

We had two cars booked in for a free winter check, when we got there we were told that they were still looking at the cars from the day before, they could have called & we would have rearranged or gone there later. They said it would be at least an hour so we walked up to Kingswood, 2 hours later we still hadnt heard anything so walked back down & they were just finishing them off. Apart from that they gave us a good service & informed us of the problems with the winter checks, I was pleased I had them done.

I enjoyed the online booking. Flexible and easy to pay. Good price too. The counter staff were friendly and helpful. The MOT paperwork came with a set of priced repairs (brakes etc). I suppose you should expect this from a national company. I just threw them away which seems like a waste of much printed material.

I always use the garage in Kingswood as its close to my work. I like how I can drop the car off in the morning and they call me throughout the day to keep me informed of what is being done and what needs doing. They aren't pushy and just advise me on what is needed

Mr Jackson

My car battery was starting to cause me some concern when starting my car first thing in the morning. I went to Halfords and they booked my car in with one days notice. The battery was checked and found to be only 51% efficient so needed to be changed. The job was completed to my satisfaction and on time. I now have confidence in the car starting on cold mornings.

Halfords Longwell green i'd give 4 stars to as they seemed OK staff seemed friendly and helpful (MOT). Halfords Downend road kingswood 2/3 stars (Major Service). They serviced the car but pointed out a lot of faults some of which were not accurate - but may have been in their opinion. Manager took time to explain things to me, and I accepted his explanation but definately not 10 stars and I was told it will be difficult for me to go back because I rejected the repairs or I think the manager was referring to the repairs on my car but I am getting my car repaired elsewhere and also repairs were not really required.

The team at halfords were very polite and helpful dealing with all my needs

Mr Clark

No problems ordering me a new tyre for same day fitting. Good communication and reasonable competitive price.

Mr K Walsh

Mr Collier

Being very nervous when I take my Scooby in to a garage for an MOT the staff were understanding and friendly making me feel very secure knowing that my pride and joy would be getting the best treatment and care. This made the experience much better for me and my car. The service was excellent. Very professional. Will always recommend them to friends family and strangers. The Kingswood Branch is a great place to go. Amazing. Thank you.

Mrs Poole

Having a near meltdown due to my own fault, the Halfords Kingswood centre helped me greatly, getting me booked in extremely quickly for an mot and service. They were knowledgeable not only about all things mot, but helping me with tax and insurance questions. I also purchased 'brakes for life', which I was informed about but not pushed in any way into buying. I wouldn't go anywhere else for any car issues!

Ms Bracey

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Yes! MoT for 29.95 but would I be landed with a list of repairs - No! Plus the very kind gentlemen at Downend Road, Bristol branch changed an indicator bulb which was working, but the wrong colour. Now that's service.

The garage were replacing bearings on my car. Unfortunately, when trying to remove the bearings, the housing broke. The garage took full responsibility for the breakage and not only repaired the product free of charge (as any reputable garage should) I was also compensated for the inconvenience of being without my car.

Mrs Bond

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I received the telephone call with the report on the car and after helpful and full explanations the work required on the service went ahead. The car was ready for me at the time specified.

Mrs Perry

All contact was very helpful and polite. Kept me informed of progress throughout MOT and service so no shocks when it came to the bill

Ms Moller

Mr Lockhart

Mr Wilmott

I have used Halfords in the past both at Downed Rd Kingswood and Long well Green and found both very good hence the reason for using them again recently. I am disabled and car categorised as disabled by the dvla and registered as car derived van.. Therefore I am vat excempt I had no problems previous until this recent visit when I was told I couldn't claim the vat. After having to contact Halfords head office I was told that I wouldn't have to pay vat and apologised for any inconvenience etc. The repairs were carried out efficiently and I didn't pay vat. Not having a problem in the past I was, to say the least, surprised by the manager saying I couldn't claim vat. Hopefully it has now been resolved.
