I have a rather brilliant local car mechanic, who is setting up a new business. If you are interested in someone to manage your car, MOT, service, work at home, etc. I highly recommend you have your own local mechanic.
He mostly works in East London and the Essex borders - e.g. Upminster and surrounds. He is also better value than using the larger garages, but with as much knowledge. Interested?
