Excellent Customer Service

Slades Motors Ltd attended my callout to Green Flag, following a problem with my car whilst recently on holiday in Devon. The technician was with us within 30 minutes of my initial call. Igor carried out various roadside checks, and made sure that we could continue our journey. However as the problem was 'electrical' he advised that we should get a full diagnostics test to confirm the actual issue. Having been impressed with their service, we rang early the following morning to book an appointment. They fitted us in the same morning, and a full diagnostics test was duly carried out whilst we waited. The technician provided us with all the detail of the report findings, and advised us accordingly.
Their customer service was excellent (friendly, professional and helpful) on both occasions. Thanks to which, we had peace of mind to enjoy the rest of our holiday.

Vehicle breakdown

Called to my VW Caddy during morning rush hour when front n/s wheel had come off. Ben attended very quickly and soon had the vehicle back on four wheels and limping back to his depot nearby.

Vehicle later checked over in workshops. Outstanding service throughout.

Patrick saved my lorry from scrap. Failed Emmision and main iveco had no solution to resolve it.

Brilliant Service Patrick saved my lorry from being scrap..
my 2002 horse lorry failed on emissions with no advisories due to the new law which came in last year, it needed to be 1.02 emissions as stated on the plate which is very low. The main iveco garage couldn't find anything mechanically wrong causing this or give a solution to the problem after having it for a couple months. Patrick had the lorry with him for less than 2 weeks the lorry has now passed with 0.06 emissions. thanks to Patrick coming up with solution to the problem my lorry Is back on the road. if I had listen to iveco and given up i would of lost a perfectly good lorry. Patrick made my day when I had the phone call to say my lorry has past. he fitted this new system to it and saved me losing my lorry. I'm now off to horse shows again. thank you so much and recommend Patrick and his team to everyone.
