This was my second time visiting the Dewsbury HiQ centre as I was impressed on my first occasion after it was recommended by a family member. On this visit I took my wife's car for the team to look at as my exhaust was blowing. No sooner had I pulled into the garage I was greeted by the friendly team who listened to what I was telling them and then immediately put my car up on the ramps and investigated the problem. They found what was wrong and showed me the issue and gave their recommendation and followed up with a very prompt quote. They told me they'd have the part within the hour and it would be fixed within 30mins which I was amazed at the level of service they were giving me. I was very happy with the price quoted and felt it a very reasonable charge for the parts and fitting. As promised, they had the part within the hour and fitted it in less than 30mins. This level of service in this industry is near on impossible to find nowadays and I don't usually write reviews about my experiences as the are usually forced on you to fill in which I strongly disagree. However I feel it only right to leave this feedback about this service garage and the positive experience I have received on both my visits here. If like me you struggle to find a garage you can trust then look no further as they are a very friendly team of mechanics who you quickly realise have the required knowledge for you to put your trust in them. The manager who's name I've sadly forgot 'due to been rubbish with names', is a credit to the Dewsbury branch and I cant stress highly enough how refreshing it is to be able to trust people in this industry without feeling your been ripped off. I could go on and on but will end my rambling by saying a big thank you to the team at the Dewsbury HiQ branch and will definitely return in the future and will highly recommend to friends and family. As for a certain Kwikfit branch that lost my trust but light at the end of the tunnel I have found a much better replacement.
Excellent service, all very friendly and don't rip you off. They fit you in wherever possible and I know I can always rely on them. I wouldn't go anywhere else now.
The staff, especially Les were extremely polite and helpful. I was told what needed doing for my MOT to pass and informed of costs and time at all stages. Even though they don't do welding, Les organised a welder to do the work needed for the MOT. (Most would send you away to arrange it yourself) The prices were very reasonable and certainly a lot cheaper than elsewhere. They gained a new and faithful customer from now on. Can't recommend them highly enough.
Excellent service every step of the way. The process was effortless and expertly handled by HiQ staff from the initial enquiry over the phone to arriving at the garage. They didn't have the tyre in stock but managed to procure it same day, within a few hours. When I arrived I received a friendly welcome and had the tyre fitted speedily. Thank you.
I required and MOT doing on my vehicle asap I contacted the garage and spoke to Chris who is a real credit to the garage he is always polite and friendly and willing to help where he can. The told me that if I brought my car down that morning they would fit it in for me at some point during the day.
Within a couple of hours Chris contacted me to say my car was ready he explained what had been done and advised me that my wiper blades are the incorrect type without making me feel pressured in to buying new ones, its a good local friendly garage and i will certainly use them again and recommend them to others.
New exhaust supplied and fitted, while I waited. Not a very common vehicle, but still managed to locate quickly, and the price was vey reasonable.
