Groupon service and mot voucher

This was my third visit and the first not be regarded as a 5* experience. When I came to pay the oil surcharge had increased from the previous £15 to £35 for the same vehicle. This was my fault as I hadn’t revisited the small print. To improve the customer experience it would help if the additional costs were more prominent in the offer, and even better if highlighted at the time of booking. The order of work could also help reduce surprises, ie complete the service before the mot. In my case this would have highlighted a simple adjustment issue with the handbrake. Rectified after the mot costs a minimum of one service manhour circa £60 irrespective of the action. In my case it was a simple handbrake adjustment, which I completed in minutes at home, based on the guidance of the test engineer, unfortunately could not retest on the day, and attracted a further £10 charge. Overall groupon is no better than using the garage direct, as costs would be more transparent, with less surprises

Wonderful Service

I was recommended by a family member after having trouble with my car that two garages could not fix , to make an appointment at Clifmere as they have worked magic with one of there cars. The initial lady representative was very friendly and was booked in at a time to suit my work schedule. They called within the morning after leaving it to say they have found the issue, it was a relatively cheap and easy fix and what problems it had caused me and the fact two other garages did not sort it after wasting money. All staff treated me with courtesy and explained the problem very well. We be in know doubt to return to this garage should my car required further servicing and MOT work.
