The Staff, Debbie, Gary, Bob and all the other team members I don't know the names of, are so welcoming whenever I call in with a problem. The staff remember my name and treat my 13 &16 year old cars like they were their own. The respect they show me and my vehicles can only be reciprocated by my support of their services. They are so helpful and nothing is to much trouble. They offer alternative options when I am uncertain and their knowledge is beyond bounds. Without sounding like I'm crawling, I want to say, these guys you can totally trust. Thank you for a great service.
My daughter hit a raised drain cover while on her way to work, in her Ford Fiesta, badly damaging the front drivers steel wheel rim, preventing the tyre from sealing. Made my mind up that we needed a new rim and contacted HiQ Ilkeston and spoke to Debbie. She was very helpful, and offered advice where I could get one and that HiQ could sort it all out for me, by ordering a new rim and refitting the tyre. She did also say that there was a possibibity the rim could be repaired by their staff. The car was needed daily by my daughter who commutes to Matlock daily and was driving on her spacesaver spare. I tried to get a rim from various sources but couldn't get one anywhere without ordering and waiting days for it to come. I called at HiQ, and showed the wheel to one of the young mechanics there who said straight away the rim could be repaired. I left it with them and collected the following day, the tyre had been removed, the rim straightened out, tyre replaced and rebalanced. They had even put a bit of black paint on the repair to prevent corrosion. Great job and excellent service - and the cost? £10. Now I appreciate this was not HiQ's biggest job of the year, but I know that several places would not have gone to this trouble and replaced the rim and probably tried to sell me a tyre as well. Thank you Debbie, and Gary who did the job - will not hesitate to use you again in the future and recommend to friends and family.
Just had a new start stop battery fitted at HI Q Ilkeston, having tried various local companies and major auto stores and being quoted higher costs and days until they could order in!! HI Q quoted at least £40 less than others next day AM and that included fitting, drove the car in and the mechanic was on it straight away, within 15 minutes I was driving away and saved myself a few quid. although I didn't catch the young chaps name who fitted the battery he was absolutely first class, pleasant, helpful, and efficient even explaining in detail about the warranty etc. highly recommend this garage to anyone Paul H
I had a blow out on Monday 23rd May 2016. I have an unusual tyre size and visited two tyre garages prior to HiQ in Taunton, Somerset, where I got the usual poor service and shrug of the shoulders. I crawled into HiQ with my tyre hanging on and the staff on the desk could not have been more helpful. They found two tyres for me and organised them for delivery the next morning at 9am, then changed my wheel to the spare as a courtesy (free of charge). Everything was done with a smile and let's get this problem sorted out for you sir attitude. I cannot praise these guys enough and thoroughly recommend their service. Calvin Stacey
The branch has friendly efficient operatives that work well together.
I was delighted to get a realistic quote which was then adjusted (downwards) to the actual work that was required. Not only that, as I had difficulty getting there and back, I was offered a lift. I will definitely be bringing my car here in future.
