Our Services

under a 4x4At Brian Martin we offer a full range of Garage services. We also carry out full servicing and mechanical repairs such as brakes, clutches, timing belts, exhausts etc to all makes of vehicles petrol or diesel. After completion of each job you will get a fully itemised VAT invoice showing all parts used and work carried out.

We keep computerised records of all work done so we can look at the service history and advise on work that may need to be carried out when you book your vehicle in for its next service.

While servicing your vehicle we use fuel additives from Forte products, these are designed to break down harmful deposits left in your engine by modern fuels and therefore making your engine run smoother and do more mpg. We have been monitoring the effects of these additives for some time now and are convinced from what we have seen and the feedback we have received from our customers that they really do work and are value for money.

MOT’s
view of car liftsWe are an MOT Testing station for petrol and diesel vehicles classes I, II and IV e.g. Motorcycles, Motorcycles with sidecar, cars (up to 8 passenger seats) and light commercial vehicles up 3000 kg DGW . You can have your mot carried out up to one calendar month in advance and have it post dated so as to not loose any unexpired time.

In the event that your vehicle fails the MOT test. If the vehicle is left at our garage for repair no re-test fee will be charged. If the vehicle fails on minor items such as bulbs, wiper blades, tyres, etc your vehicle can be returned by the end of the next working day for a free re-test. However if your vehicle fails on more serious items and is taken off the premises for repair and returned for a re-test by the end of the tenth working day after the MOT was carried out a partial re-test can be done and half test fee charged.

If the vehicle is returned after the ten day period a full re-test will have to be carried out and a full fee will be charged. After your vehicle has passed its MOT test it will be logged onto our database and you will be sent a MOT reminder note the following year.

It is worth noting that most MOT fail items would have been corrected during a routine service, so it is worthwhile having your annual service and MOT done at the same time.

Please note we do not repair motorcycles we just MOT them.

Courtesy Carsa curtesy car

At present we have six courtesy cars which we loan out free of charge while your car is being repaired; these are quite popular so they need to be booked out when you book your vehicle in for repair. Unfortunately we can not provide insurance for you when driving the courtesy cars therefore you must arrange your own cover before you take a vehicle. The only other request we make is that you replace the fuel that you use.
