While You Wait


Things To Do Locally While You Wait

If the work on your car is expected to take a while you may choose to leave it and come back. However if it is more suitable for you to stay around, we have  a range of things you can do locally or you can choose to use our waiting room. It has a few magazines, TV, DVD, brochures and Wifi. You can make it your own for the duration of your visit as a reading room, office or just somewhere comfortable to sit. We of course make sure that you have a cup of tea or coffee to keep you company.
