CUSTOMERS TESTIMONIALS FOR BRAKE STATION

Read below the feedback that our customers have left us since we first opened in September 2012 (Motor Codes, Google & Facebook)

Stephanie (Jul 2017) - I had a problem with an intermittent abs light which another garage said they'd sorted out but 2 weeks later & another trip to original garage (which couldn't find a fault) I decided to take it to Brake Station. Great service & they sorted the problem out & I discovered the other garage looked like it never touched the sensor. Great work guys


Paul (Jul 2017) - Excellent service. Looked after me superbly for my recent MOT and retest. Sorted out issue with brakes very promptly. Will recommend wholeheartedly to friends and family


Belham Wood (Jul 2017) - We have used Brake Station for 2 Years now for our MOT and servicing etc. Can't fault them. Thanks guys for keeping our Works van and personal cars on the road 5*


Dooley920 (Jun 2017) - I always use this place for their experience, pleasant nature and fair pricing... Give them a go, you won't regret it. Top notch service.


Tony (Jun 2017) - Had my car mot'd and serviced recently - Good advice - good service - fair and honest pricing - can thoroughly recommend


Toby (Jun 2017) - Had my MOT with these guys and they were so helpful and friendly! Were very honest with everything to do with the car and came in at a reasonable price. Will deffo use these chaps again. Been through many garages in Peterborough and these are by far the one of the best.


Benjamin (Jun 2017) - Had a cambelt change and new tyres , for a good price. Easy and polite interaction. Thanks again!


Adam (May 2017) - First things first, I've read the reviews below, and quite frankly the negative ones must be bogus.
I took my Fiesta in for MOT, failed on a couple of points, but the parts and labour were both very reasonable (lower that other local garages) and because they did the work they didn't charge for a retest.
I cannot award more respect to these guys, they are all professionals who do quality work, for very reasonable prices.
I'll be booking my car in here in the future, and considering I live 60 miles away, that should speak volumes.


Thomas (May 2017) - Had an MOT done, was a good price and done within a quick amount of time. Friendly staff at reception.


Paulin (Apr 2017) - Had MOT and other work done last week, fair cost and excellent friendly service. Took car back today for replacement part, once again quick professional. service and only charged for time job took, not full hour. Would recommend to anyone.

Richard (Feb 2017) - Good diagnosis on the phone (sticking calliper is overheating) and confirmed when they looked at the car. It was fixed quickly and the car runs nicely again. Well done, thank you.


Steve (Dec 2016) - I recommend Brake Station to anyone who ever asks me for car issues in Peterborough. Honest, quick and reliable. I wouldn't take my car anywhere else.


William (Nov, 2016) - these guys are great, fast, friendly and honest. I highly recommend them


Elisia (May, 2016) - Love these guys. Always honest about what needs doing, great fix times and great prices. 

Andrew (Mar, 2016) - Found this company online after my previous garage had let me down multiple times. I am very happy I did! The people are very polite and helpful. After my MOT and service (very good price i might add) they explained every advisory, fail and service note in good detail so that a non-mechanic like me could understand. Although they couldn't get my repairs done on one day which was annoying but they managed to book me in for a few days later and got the rest done then. Would recommend anyone to give them a go.


Connor (Nov, 2015) - Always an excellent service and fast turnaround. Friendly, honest and knowledgable guys. Good pricing. This is coming from someone who's very particular about their car also.

A (Jan 23, 2015) - Brake Station took my car in without appointment and did an excellent job of identifying the damaged parts and giving me options on replacement parts. All in all great service and excellent job done. A friendly & informative service. Would thoroughly recommend them.


Edward (Jul 25, 2014) - I have been using Brake Station for over a year now and they have worked on 3 of my vehicles. The team there are not only very professional, they are friendly, honest and experts in what they do. If you do not understand mechanics, these guys have a good way of explaining the work they have carried out. As for their MOT's, they are cheap, but I do not believe that it is to lure people in to gain extra work. When my Rover failed its test, Brake Station did the best they could to fix it and re MOT it at a competitive price. They even collected and dropped off my car for free! My Mercedes went in today for new tyres and an MOT and again, the level of service was way above expected! Nothing is too much trouble! Not only are Brake Station the best indie garage in Peterborough, the also beat the main dealers and national chains! I would recommend them without hesitation.

Paul (Jul 24, 2014) - I was extremely impressed with the professionalism shown at this garage. Everything was explained to me in detail and if I didn't understand something, they paraphrased it beautifully. The two guys that run this venture, were also up for a bit of banter which kind of restores faith in people. Without a doubt I will be using them again. PS. The service/repair has took 10 years off this car :-)Desmond (Jun 22, 2014) - Communication with customer very good. All my questions were answered fully and was kept informed as work progressed. Very good value for money, and I refer the garage to my friends.


Desmond (Jun 22, 2014) - Communication with customer very good. All my questions were answered fully and was kept informed as work progressed. Very good value for money, and I refer the garage to my friends.


Keith (Jun 22, 2014) - Very good customer care and exceptional service. My car broke down last year a day before I was due to go on a driving holiday. The fault was diagnosed quickly and the parts obtained quickly, bearing in mind the car was not with the garage until late afternoon. The parts were fitted the following morning and I was able to leave by lunchtime as originally planned. Superb service.


Damian (Jun 20, 2014) - Fantastic, kept me informed and showed me the old parts to view the wear. Great job!!!


Dean (Jun 20, 2014) - Fantastic service, very friendly and informative staff and well priced too


Chris (Jun 20, 2014) - The above mentioned vehicle belongs to my partner Mrs Jo Davey of Peterborough. I have taken my Mercedes SLK C15 CJR, my son's two cars (he live in Cambridge)to the above mentioned garage and their service has always been first class. I have promoted their services to my colleagues in my work place in Peterborough and know that my colleagues who have used them have been more than satisfied with the service given.

Zane (Jun 20, 2014) - Can't rate highly enough. Everything very well explained, including talk through replaced parts after service to show condition and reason for replacement. Very reasonable labour rate and minimised where possible. Just an excellent service all round.


Colin (Jun 18, 2014) - The staff were courteous and efficient. The price was good. They booked it in earlier than scheduled so that I could collect at a convenient time for me and they dropped me at work in the morning as I was on a tight timescale. Overall a pleasant experience.

Alastair (Jun 18, 2014) - EXTREMELY GOOD PEOPLE WHO PROVIDE AN EVEN BETTER SERVICE, ALL AT AN UNBEATABLE PRICE!


Carl (Jun 15, 2014) - Half the price of the main dealer. Things explained very well to.


Jackie (Jun 13, 2014) - Everyone at Brake Station were friendly, helpful, very quick and efficient.


Matt (Jun 13, 2014) - Excellent service. Car was booked in at very late notice (day before). Fault was found quickly and I received a call to explain what the fault was and quoted for fixing it. All the work was complete before I finished work.


Darren (Jun 12, 2014) - They managed to fit my car into their schedule at extremely short notice. Carried out repairs at very reasonable rates, keeping the defective parts as evidence of need. Will not use anyone else in the future.


Trevor (Jun 11, 2014) - Very professional ,polite and efficient service, and especially as I had not booked and turned up unexpectedly. Service provided was Aircon re-gas.


Marc (Jun 10, 2014) - Fast friendly and efficient, with good customer care. Took the time to explain and show me the defect parts. Price as quoted. A great overall service.


Mark (Jun 10, 2014) - Very friendly counter staff and mechanics happy to provide advice and solutions.


Mark (Jun 10, 2014) - An excellent service would bend over backwards to help. I have 3 vehicles and all of them go there without hesitation. Highly recommended.


DJ (Apr 04, 2014) - I have been using Brake Station for various work on cars since Chris and Miguel opened the business. Their service and professionalism is top notch and I go there confident that they and their Team will do a great job of whatever work is required.

On two separate occasions now the guys at Brake Station have diagnosed, found and rectified an issue that has proved too hard to fathom for the main dealers. There are two key reasons for this:

Firstly, communication. They actually listen to the customer and seek to understand the problem (without all the usual head scratching, teeth sucking and bewildered blank looks you get at other places).

Secondly, they apply sound logic and engineering judgement to solving problems. And the reason for that is that they are experienced Professional Engineers; Proper ones, not the usual "motor engineers" that you'll be dealing with at most places you could take your car.

It always takes a while to find people that can be trusted to take care of cars in a manner in which you're completely happy and comfortable with. I have repeatedly referred other friends and colleagues to Brake Station, safe in the knowledge that the guys will look after them and I will continue to trust them to look after my cars in the future.

Thanks


Sharan (26 Apr, 2014) - Thank you and your team so much for fitting my car in, at very short notice, and repairing it in a day. I really appreciate it.  She’s now driving noise free!!


Matt (Mar 19, 2014) - Chris and Miguel are highly competent professional engineers who have gained substantial experience in the design and development of engines. They provide a very professional and competent service with the added value you would expect from qualified engineers.


David (Feb 27, 2014) - The only place to have confidence in a great service, give them a try and you'll go nowhere else...

Louise (Jan 08, 2014) - Thank you so much for my MOT today, welcoming, friendly people, clean environment, professional, and good price - a very refreshing change! See you at 60,000 :)


Loz (Jan 02, 2014) - Thanks for the great service today guys, great place to get your motor mot'd. Friendly staff and great customer service. Will recommend Brake Station to all my friends


Nick (Dec 19, 2013) - My local and trusted machanics. Genuinely nice guys who take the time to talk to you and explain everything. They show you all old parts they've replaced and go the extra mile to make sure the customer is happy. Only wish they covered all aspects of electrical diagnostics and not just some.


Julia (Dec 03, 2013) - Thanks for the service today gents. Great customer care and good value. Quality parts too - especially the wipers!


Scott (Nov 29, 2013) - Great help, great guys and great work.


Amanda (Nov 28, 2013) - Look after my daughter very well when her car broke down!


Kamal (Nov 15, 2013) - I was recommended this garage by a trusted friend and they have not disappointed!.. The service is fantastic, the car runs beautifully and I'm never stung with any surprise costs like I have been in the past by other garages. I highly recommend this garage and it's also the only garage where I have been taken out to actually look at the problem with my car before they do any work on it and they only take payment once the work is complete! Thank you very much Chris and Miguel.. I'll be back to get my air conditioning real soon!


Brian (Nov 13, 2013) - Fantastic service always with a smile, honest pricing and realistic timescales, thanks again guys for keeping us moving.


Diane (Nov 1, 2013) - Would just like to say a big thank you for your help with my very poorly peugeot the other day. Nice to know there are some very helpful people in this world not just trying to make an a few quid. I will def be back.


Nick (Oct 17, 2013) - A personal and professional service from a commited and hard working team. Unlike most garages who will treat you as an object on a converyor belt, Break Station will take time out to tell you all you need to know and explain any problems and faults in detail and in a way thats easy to understand.


Laura (Oct 14, 2013) - They were absolutely fantastic, particularly Chris and Miguel. They gave me full confidence that the work was completed to a high standard. I was impressed by the level of customer service, and the detailed explanation of all the parts. They took on board how little my knowledge of cars were and explained everything in a way I could understand. I walked away happy and would definitely go back.


Simon (Oct 08, 2013) - Thanks guys for doing my brakes yesterday, I've had no problems with them. Keep it up!


Debbie (Oct 03. 2013) - A great big thank you to the team at Brake Station ....great friendly service as always .. Would recommend them ...


Lynn (Sep 30, 2013) - Recommend these guys, excellent service


Stephen (Sep 20, 2013) - Another very easy MOT thank you and I'm sure the same for the full service next month....good work!!


Andrew (Sep 14, 2013) - This garage was a breath of fresh air compared to it's competitors. From the first phone call the quote was made based on the manufacturers timescale for the work involved, they didn't just pick a price out of thin air and double it. They were happy to install parts provided by the customer, and their hourly rate was very reasonable.
Time was spent most importantly explaining other work that they found to be required but without any hard sell. Unlike other garages that I have been to including the main dealers they were honest with their findings and when I checked myself they had found issues that I was unaware of with the tyres that could have caused premature failure and an accident.
All in all I was very satisfied with my visit and will go back when my M.O.T is due.


Charlene (Sep 12, 2013) - I couldn't be happier advised me really well offered to show me the old parts that needed replacing even though i believed them i really appreciated that as have had garages in the past rip me off but thought my money was very well spent and being a female its nice to fond a garage i can trust to give me an honest quotation without them thinking because being female they can pull the wool over my eyes finally found my garage for life now no matter what car i have very very pleased.


Debbie (Sep 11, 2013) - Sent my dad there on Monday, thanks for looking after him.


Richard (Aug 24, 2013) - fair, friendly and honest business - difficult to find in the motor trade.


Irene (Aug 23, 2013) - Excellent Service Today


Richard (Aug 21, 2013) - Full service and MOT completed within a day. Time taken to look through components removed from engine and explain why changed. Time taken to go through advisories in detail (what / how important) and clear good quotes provided for the work. I expect to be going back to the garage to get this work completed.


Richard (Aug 20, 2013) - Both Chris and Miguel are very friendly efficient and helpful, nothing seems to be to much trouble and both appear to be very knowledgeable in all aspects of there business. A 40 mile round trip to get a service is a bit of a bind but well worth the time.


Alan (Aug 20, 2013) - I was very pleased to be treated as a valued customer and would not hesitate to recommend this garage to other people.The garage itself was Spotless and staff extremely helpful and polite.


College Arms (Aug 14, 2013) - We are proud to support Brake Station Peterborough, they offer a great service and offer value for money.... We will recommend to all of our customers.... keep up the good work!


Lynne (Aug 12, 2013) - The managers/mechanics advised what they were doing and how much it would cost right from the start and when it was found we actually needed a new condenser, the advised how much this was and asked if I still wanted this done. They got the part and finished the job all in a day which was really good.


Anne (Aug 09, 2013) - So pleased with the customer service, knowledge and attention to detail that the lovely guys at Brake Station provide. I will definitely be recommending them to all my family and friends. Thank you :-)


Johnney (Aug 08, 2013) - As always exceptional service from the guys at Brake Station. For anyone looking for a good garage I can Recommend this one.


Rebecca (Aug 06, 2013) - Again, I am completely satisfied with the garage's professionalism, willingness to help, they listened to me and called me before any works were carried out. I couldn't have asked for a better place to take my car to. You guys are one in a million - thanks again! I will definitely be returning to you in future.


Phil (01 Aug, 2013) - Excellent service and customer friendly attitude, car was left tidy and with all trims and adjustments returned to as delivered state, service book correctly stamped and service indicator zero'd. No smell of oil {or cigarettes!} in car, unlike previous services from the local garage I transferred to Brake Station from. Overall, a good job well done and to a fair price.


Alix (31 Jul, 2013) - Going to a new garage can always be a bit of a worry however i never experienced that with the brake station. I has quotes at double the price, so brilliant value for money, swift service too.


Ewan (30 Jul, 2013) - Excellent service and a very friendly approach. Would recommend to others.


Michael (24 Jul, 2013) - Top garage no need to go anywhere else.


Richard (22 Jul, 2013) - Would highly recommend this garage. It feels like customer service is top of the list, I had a problem which needed sorting quickly, these guys managed to do the job the same day. Subsequent problem was found and explained clearly, standard of work is very good and there is a high level of knowledge.


Jane (Jul 18, 2013) - What a fantastic garage. They got my air con sorted very quickly after another garage in Peterborough let me down. For customer service they would be hard to beat. All other garages who think they offer good customer service could learn a lot from these guys). In summary - efficient, proficient and very friendly! I would highly recommend and will be back when it's MOT time.


Helen (Jul 01, 2013) - Submitted a request for an MOT online at 9am and had call back that morning for a confirmed MOT the same afternoon. Fast, friendly, efficient service, will be recommending to friends and family. Thanks very much to the team! :-)


Tanya (Jun 10, 2013) - Lovely service once again, thank you guys :) recommended most definitely!!


James (Jun 08, 2013) - Can't rate this place high enough. If honesty, reliability, mechanical knowledge and great value is what your after then give these guys a call.


Michelle (Jun 05, 2013) - My brakes failed the night before my holiday and these guys fixed it on Saturday morning and even stayed after closing to get it done for me - highly recommended and competitive on price! 


David (May 29, 2013) - Would highly recommend these guys, they fixed my problem which had been overlooked by a well known garage, they are very friendly, very helpful, and I think reasonably priced...SO WHY NOT GIVE 'EM A GO.


Philippa (May 16, 2013) - We had a service and MOT at Brake Station and would highly recommend them. Great value for money and we felt confident that our car was being well looked after, thank you.


Kelley (May 10, 2013) - I took my car in at the last minute to replace my exhaust, perform a 60K service and MOT. The service I received was fab. They were were really professional and prompt and more importantly very reasonable. They went out of their way to keep me informed of any extra costs and I would highly recommend them to anybody! Great service!!!


Sohail (May 09, 2013) - Excellent job done on my BMW. Thanks


Jamie (May 07, 2013) - Excellent service! Highly recommend. MOT passed eventually after the brake flex hoses were replaced. Critical safety issue so very pleased this was picked up. Very good price, friendly and well informed service. Keep up the good work guys!


Mikey (May 04, 2013) - Thank you very much, brilliant set up you've got, I'll spread the word.


Sav (Apr 29, 2013) - After twenty years of using Longueville Autos I thought I'd find it difficult to find another honest and transparent garage. Well, here it is, Chris and Miguel are truly genuine guys. The service I received was great, they took the time to explain everything they'd done and were fully engaging. I wish them well with their new venture and hope that their enthusiasm continues and Brake Station is a success. Well done, just what Peterborough needs!


Anthony (Apr 24, 2013) - Been in today and can highly recommend. Great service which was transparent and fair. Will be going back


Antonis (Apr 21, 2013) - Thank you Brake Station. Excellent service. Quick, reliable and very reasonably priced. I will definitely be back - its an Alfa, so see you soon ;)


Penelope (Apr 15, 2013) - Dear Miguel and Chris. The service has made a big difference to the car and is driving beautifully. Thank you.


Owen (Apr 11, 2013) - Thanks guys. Parts in on time, work done on time - ahead of time actually, meaning I could pick my car up early! One thing that irritates me is picking my car up and finding it's picked up a grubby finger print while being worked on - none of that at Brake Station. Thanks again guys.


Rebecca (Apr 07, 2013) - Very cheap and reliable...definitely recommend


Rachel (Mar 15, 2013) - Honest, sincere, friendly and being a lady who knows nothing about cars they put me at ease and took the time to show and explain what was wrong with my car and how they fixed it:) I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anybody. They also pass any savings on parts on to their customers. Thank you so much:) Will definitely be back!


Cathryn (Mar 14, 2013) - Just been to Brake Station for my MOT, very impressed with the warm welcome and quality service given! Will be back again soon, and will be recommending! Thanks again :)


Steve (Mar 08, 2013) - They squeezed my MOT in at last minute and was the cheapest in Peterborough. Cheers lads!!


Debi (Mar 07, 2013) - what a great set of lads - they not only give you good advise but also they are willing to get your car up on the ramps and have a look free of charge!!! this is exceptional as most garages want £20 before you even pull into the place... they looked over our car and saw the problem straight away and explained it in easy terms for us to understand,,, we were given a price for the job and to be honest it was cheaper than we paid for the same job done about 2 years ago!!! whoop whoop whoop what a brilliant place with brilliant people,,, everybody should use this place - its great AND i found it on facebook!!!!!!!!!


Tanya (Feb 28, 2013) - Thank you guys for getting my car through MOT, fab service!!
