Trustworthy small business and a comprehensive service

I was in need of a reliable and trustworthy mechanic when I moved to Birmingham three years ago and Ratchet and Spanner have lived up to their reputation.
I have had all manner of work completed including all of my servicing and MOT's alongside a timing belt change.
Competent and friendly lads, I will continue to use their service for as long as I'm in Brum.

Skilled, faultless work. Trustworthy, courteous service.

R & S is the best garage I have used in 50 years of driving. They have serviced my 10-year-old Renault since it was 2, for 100,000 miles, and it has never given me any trouble. They are knowledgable, skilled, courteous and trustworthy. The quality of the work is faultless and I would recommend them to anybody.

Body repair - great service

Excellent service and a great job. They did the job, replacing a rusted section of body work and repainting, more quickly than expected even though they were busy. Communications were really great. Highly recommended.

Ratchet and Spanner have always been reliable and trustworthy with my vehicle. Especially as a female in a male’s world, they all have been very helpful with any problems that I have had. My car is very important to me given my profession as a nurse, so I always need my car to be 100% reliable, which they always make sure it is. I wouldn’t go anywhere else, and would recommend them to anyone needing quality repairs or advice.
