Friendly And Trustworthy

I have used this garage twice now and wished I had used them a lot earlier. First time was for a service and the second time was to carry out an investigation on the front steering/driveshaft. When I took the car in I also mentioned that I had purchased two new headlight units as the current ones had yellowed. I asked John if they could be fitted at the same time and he said he would try and get both jobs done that day. True to his word he examined/tested the steering/suspension and replaced the light units all on the same day. Great service and not overcharged for unnecessary work either. Very trustworthy. Thanks

All my cars i have had having service here. Johns business is second to none! He gives you a detailed bill, telling you what was bought, calls you if its going to be expensive. suggests places if you need the part second hand… Sadly these days i don’t use my car very often… if you reading this give him a call, his daughter will organise things no worries John doesn’t use a computer to see if your brakes are worn down.. he take the wheel off, clean the brakes and measure it probably..other garages i use have computer, told me that are worn need replacing, therefore cutting costs i gone have them replace being told that there is still lots of pads… Should of gone to John’s place.

I am very happy to comment on the service received at Windmill Garage. My family and I have used the garage over the past 10 years or so and have always received the highest level of service. John and his staff are always friendly, polite and helpful. If I have needed help or advise over a car issue, John and his staff have always helped me out – nothing is too much trouble. The standard of workmanship is excellent and I have always been kept informed of any extras needed when servicing. I highly recommend them!

I always take my car to Windmill garage. The staff are always friendly and prices are fair. Always try to fit you in as soon as possible and at your convenience. Always inform you of progress of work. Do not have to drive miles if you live in Clanfield or Horndean but would be worth making the journey from further afield. Happy to recommend

When we moved to the area we asked around for a trustworthy Mechanic and John Simmance was recommended to us. We have certainly not been disappointed by this recommendation.
