I have booked my car in for an MOT and there are no pre existing problems that I am aware of. However, if they find something that needs doing, but I would rather get it done elsewhere, please confirm that if I find a cheaper quote and they will return the car, then that they will carry out the MOT once its done?

I have never been in that position but I would inagine that if it needs work done then that's a fail, and they would expect, if you didn't want to have the work done to get a pass then they would charge you for the MOT. If you present it again after the work they would need to test it again at your cost. I think that is only fair. If they are testing twice they should be paid twice

If the problem would cause an MOT fail they will not pass the car - nevertheless the mot will be charged. If you then had it done elsewhere the MOT would then have to be repeated so that the car can pass

hi, I had my van serviced and with extras that cost too much!! I just got them to do it thinking will save me hassle. I was definately over priced by the garage that took my van. I would put in for mot and check that you can get it back with no problems!! if you decide to go else where. If the quote seems fair go with them,use your insight!! In hindsight i should have got it done at a local garage as i will next time for me 30% more expensive!! good luck. ps--use a trusted garage over this supposed convenience,

You only pay for the MOT test.The MOT test centre is independent of garage it is situated at.If it is a fail you have a time period of 10 days I believe (will say on the fail sheet how long).To get the work done wherever you wish and then return the vehicle to the same test centre for a retest at no extra charge as long as it's within the stated time on the fail sheet. MOT centres are essentially government regulated as are the testers.

I don't know their base in the Telford area, but they come to collect your car from your home and return it afterwards.

I'm sorry but I have no idea and can only suggest you give Servicing Stop a call or email and ask them. My car was done in Lossiemouth, Moray,and they were happy to tell me where the car was going. Can't fault the service but that is obviously down to the individual garage and as we all know there are good and bad.

They use all local garages maybe it's a garage down the road from you give them a call ,they pick your car up and return it to you leaving you free to relax in your own home. 100% great service.

Unsure where they are based but I would avoid at all cost. Prices will rise when your car is already in, they attempted to charge me 5 times main dealer price for low ash oil (over and above the oil price already paid), they do not follow manufacturer service guideline as advertised and to top it off car returned late. Look over the Internet for many poor reviews
