What are the differences between a garage and an MOT centre?
At first glance, a garage and an MOT centre looks to be the same thing and, in many ways, they are. A garage, like our own workshop in Morden, provides automotive services relating to the servicing and repair sides of our industry. An MOT garage also performs annual inspections and needs approval from the DVSA to do this type of work to the right standard.
Garth Road MOT Centre undertakes Class IV MOTs, a category that primarily covers passenger cars, light commercial vehicles and some public services vehicles.
Can your MOT centre still perform traditional car repairs?
Yes. Everything else about us is typical of what you might find in an ordinary garage. Car repairs account for much of the work we do so, if you’re a motorist in the Morden area looking for a brake or clutch replacement, or maybe some work on the steering or suspension components of your vehicle, we provide the garage services you need.
And, because we have modern outlook on car repairs, Garth Road MOT Centre also carries advanced engine management equipment to assist with diagnostic work.
Does this mean I can book in for car servicing too?
Absolutely, and we promise to service your car to the same standards as main dealerships in Morden and the surrounding Surrey area. We offer a complete range of full and interim car servicing options to keep your vehicle running smoothly and efficiently. The technicians at our garage use top quality replacement parts and lubricants on each and every service.
If you can’t make it to our garage personally, arrange to have it collected from anywhere in the local area and, once we’ve fulfilled your car servicing needs, we’ll deliver it back to you.
Do you perform tyre repairs?
Yes. If you have suffered a puncture, we’ll perform a full inspection of the tyre and, as long as it is safe to do so, we’ll undertake the subsequent repair work. We complete tyre repairs to BS159 standards. Our workshop in Morden also offers tyre replacement services so, if tyre repairs aren’t appropriate for your situation, we’ll still get you back on the road quickly.
Garth Road MOT Centre charges inclusive prices for tyre repairs and tyre replacements. We never bump up the bill by charging extra for weighting, balancing and fitting.
