Juliana McGowan

Recently popped in for my WOF and was very lucky to be taken last minute. The whole process was easy and I found the customer service from everyone to be extremely friendly and accommodating. I remembered having great service here when living in NZ several years ago & so happy to see it is still the same.

I will definitely trust the Motor Works team for all my mechanical needs for the future.

Just got my car serviced with MotorWorks, great service, knew my name on arrival & were very efficient in getting my car looked over & assessed. They came back to me very quickly with what needed to be repaired and the price was very reasonable. Professional, efficient and friendly.

Great job!

I couldn’t open my drivers door, so drove straight to Motor Works. The guys looked at it for me, was going to be an two day fix, so they organised a spare car for me on the spot until it was fixed… Phew!

Kept me updated with the progress and cost. Thanks team.

I booked my car in at Motor Works for a service and WOF and dropped it in this morning. It was like checking into a 5 star hotel! Reception were expecting me with the necessary paperwork and asked when I’d like to collect it, not just when they will have it ready – impressive! Then on time, I received a phone call to pick up my serviced and warranted Subaru.

Keith and The Team are excellent at what they do, offering a quality and personable service. Thanks!

Recently had a blown headlight in my Hyundai so called in for a quick fix, they noticed I was well overdue for a service so got me booked in the following week. Had a loan car ready for me when I got there to use for the day.

Fantastic service, quick and easy! The fudge is a nice wee bonus when paying too. Can highly recommend the team here.
