    In a pickle after my suspension failed while on holiday in Kippford. They sorted out the issue, kept me in the loop and informed - was ready for collection when they said it would be. Great service and didn’t break the bank. Mark Beever 28th July 2021.

However Bryan Swales Auto Repairs were brilliant - understood the issue right and fixed the car in less than 20 minutes. Very professional and the price was reasonable too. We are very grateful and have no hesitation in recommending... Read More
