A Bit About Us

Motor Works

Our workshop at 340 Tuam Street, in between Fitzgerald Ave and Barbadoes Street covers 9000 square feet with parking directly in front of the buildings entrance. Workshop areas are open and flowing with 3 large doorways allowing vehicle movement without disturbing existing work. 

Motor Works concentrates solely on vehicle repairs and servicing.

Whilst other operations of similar size to us have diversified into vehicle sales and the like, we continue to concentrate on what we do best.

We ensure our operations are at the highest industry standard by employing an independant audit company to provide an overview.

Customers can feel confident of repairs and servicing that carry a written MTA promise of quality delivery.

These guys are super professional. All costs are discussed, courtesy car (phew!) and chocolate fudge at the end. Of course I go back!

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 has 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 loancar 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.
