“Solus Luton”

Written on: 19/12/2013 by Wolverton (1 review written)

Having had a recent 'argument' with my garage wall I had to get it repaired through the insurers who only use Solus. Having read the reviews on here I was very pleasantly surprised at the service I received from the Solus Luton branch. They were efficient, friendly and courteous. My car was collected and a hire car dropped off with no hassle. I was kept well informed about how the repair was going and the car was returned to me in a timely way, looking a lot better than it left. Cannot fault… Read Full Review

“Incompetent”

Written on: 10/11/2013

I wouldn't go back to them again given the choice, but I wasn't offered an alternative as they are run by my insurers, Aviva. Overall the bodywork repairs and paint were actually okay, but the numerous electrical faults and a blatant lack of attention to detail ruin the overall job. So far 5 attempts at getting the details right but instead of actually diagnosing, locating and fixing the faults it seems like it's just bodge after bodge to try and patch it up to the absolute bare minimum… Read Full Review

I can tell u why its because the system in place to final check the cars over after repair is awful and lacking a decent checkoff system against the work carried out

“Extremely poor workmanship, best avoided”

Written on: 08/09/2013 by pitchan (1 review written)

Got my car repaired at Solus Erith through Aviva. Two lightly dented doors took them 4 weeks to finish. Got their call on a Friday that car is ready for delivery back. I had a funny feeling they would mess something up so decided to drop their courtesy car (a 1.2 Vauxhall Corsa which I could hardly fit my little one's pram) back at their garage the next day. What I witnessed then was truly traumatic. My car (new with 4k on the clock) sitting in their parking lot with a flat battery. Took them… Read Full Review

“Sneeky Buggers”

Written on: 31/08/2013

My car went in to be repaired and came back covered in swirls where they had used a buffer on it. The wheel balancing was also not corrected as it shook when I got to 60mph. I phoned them up and they told me they had used a buffer machine and the swirls would polish out when I washed it and with regards to the balancing they suggested that I had probably knocked it since!! They were extremely patronising on the phone so I got my partner to call up.... They eventually agreed to correct the… Read Full Review

“Very pleased a professional job ”

Written on: 31/08/2013

I've got to say after reading all the negative reviews I was a bit dubious about my car going in for repairs at Solus branch in Birmingham, but I have to say how satisfied I was . My vehicle was picked up within 1 day of having my crash & within hours an engineer called me to explain all the repairs that was going to be undertaken to my vehicle & filled me full of confidence that it would be repaired back to its original condition , engineer even offered me reduced rates for an old scratch on… Read Full Review

“Warrington”

Written on: 30/08/2013 by Tyker (1 review written)

Solus Warrington carried out an extensive repair on my car and I am pleased with the end result. Not quite 5 stars because there were a couple of 'snagging' issues, but these were rectified with no fuss, so an extra 0.5 stars for that to give a 4.5 star rating… Read Full Review

“Poor Workmanship”

Written on: 05/07/2013 by Eclass (1 review written)

It took them over a month to replace one bumper and a door. The result appeared as the whole job took no more than an hour to do as on my thorough inspection the fittings were not in place. When they installed the door panel, they simply forced pushed the clips without clipping them. Also original rivets were missing and replaced with aftermarket which i got my child to pull out by hand that almost fell out having no resistance and no purpose. So much for the new door. I have now also… Read Full Review

management at solus are not professionals, they believe in looking after themselves and ringfencing issues at everysite ie, use intimidation tactics on all levels treat workers like idiots because they know H.R is on there side whatever they do.theyre stuck in prehistoric ways of thinking and working

“Pathetic workmanship.”

Written on: 14/05/2013 by m80geo (1 review written)

My vehicle went in for a rear bumper at their Cumbernauld branch, I refused to give them the car until the parts were in stock to reduce the time off the road however it still took them over a week to return it to me. When returned, the bumper looked as if it had been fitted by a todler, misaligned was not the word. After giving them a bad report they insisted on having another bash at it... Somehow its even worse. I'm not sure what wories me most, what the fitters are smoking or the health of… Read Full Review

“Better than we expected!”

Written on: 10/05/2013

After reading the reviews on this site for Solus in Cumbernauld, we were worried about the repairs to our damaged car. I should say though we are happy with the work done. The car was returned repaired, polished and valeted. The delivery guy was courteous and the people were helpful in keeping us up to date with the progress. In short, they did a fine job… Read Full Review

“Tax Disc”

Solus lost my car tax disc when they returned my car to me. They couldn't explain why it was removed in the first instance and offered no apology. With constant phone call to them they agreed to reimburse me for the amount I have to pay for a duplicate but lets wait and see if they do… Read Full Review
