BUSINESS AS USUAL + EXTENDED MOTS + PICK UP AND DROP OFF SERVICE

We are very happy to tell you that it’s business as usual here.  Opening hours the same and service availability the same.

We can arrange a Hands Free Handover Pick Up and Drop Off service for your vehicle if you are unable to leave home.

We are still able to do MOTs and you can still have your MOT done during the covid19 period.

If however you are choosing to extend your MOT after 30th March we can still help make sure your vehicle is safe and ‘roadworthy’ as directed in the government guidelines today.

This basically means that even though you may extend your MOT date you have a legal responsibility to make sure your car is roadworthy – for example bald or over worn tyres will still be unsafe and attract fines and penalties as normal. Call us for advice if you are concerned – we want to help.

Visit the latest guidelines here to learn what is required to remain legal on the road during the MOT extension period.

If your vehicle age is 3 years or older you are required by law to have an annual safety check, the ministry of transport test, commonly known as the MOT Test.

The purpose of an MOT test is to ensure the vehicle meets the minimum safety level required by law.

At Gainsford Hall Workshop we use the latest specification fully automated test lane, meaning your MOT test is carried out to the highest possible standard.

Whether you would like to tie your MOT test in with your regular service, or require just an MOT, please contact us and we’ll be happy to arrange an appointment to suit your needs.

  • review rating 5  Had an emergency problem with my brakes away from home so contacted Darren at Gainsford HW. One of the team collected my car from my workplace and Darren kept me updated throughout. When it was apparent that the part needed ordering a car was left for me to use and the work was carried out promptly the next day. I will definitely use this garage again and highly recommend.
