Top Choice for Everything from Repairs to Car Servicing in Biggin Hill
Over the years, Lockyer Motors has established a dedicated customer base who travel from Biggin Hill to our Orpington garage / accident repair centre. This is largely down to word of mouth recommendations, for which we’re very grateful. On this page, for the benefit of motorists who haven’t yet used us for MOT testing, car servicing, mechanical repairs or bodywork repairs, we’ve answered a handful of questions we regularly receive.
If you have a question that isn’t answered below, we urge you to give our garage a call directly on01689 824 567. Our friendly mechanics will be happy to be of assistance, and to book you in for MOT testing, car servicing or bodywork repairs should you decide to pay us a visit (we enjoy strong local transport links and are just a short drive from Biggin Hill).
Common Queries Answered
Does car servicing at an independent garage invalidate my warranty?
No. We provide car servicing to the same standard as any dealership in or around the Biggin Hill area, and as a result are DVSA-authorised to stamp your service book within warranty.
Are the parts you use for repairs guaranteed?
Yes. We use OEM-compliant parts that come with 12 month/12,000 mile warranties, whichever comes first.
What’s the earliest date my vehicle can undergo MOT testing?
Our Biggin Hill customers can come in for MOT testing up to one month (take away one day) ahead of their current certificate’s expiry date.
How long does MOT testing typically take?
Usually around an hour. However, allow for more time in case car servicing or essential repairs are required to secure you a passing grade. Please note, unlike many a garage around Biggin Hill, we offer free retests in these situations.
What’s the difference between an accident repair centre and the average garage?
Many a garage lacks the specialist equipment and know how to rescue badly damaged vehicles that have been involved in an accident. As the Biggin Hill area’s trusted accident repair centre, not only can we fix or replace components that no longer work, but we can carry out bodywork repairs to get your pride and joy looking like it did before the accident.
Why use your independent garage over a main dealership?
The main reasons Biggin Hill motorists choose our garage and accident repair centre over main dealers, is that we offer a far more personal level of customer service, at prices that are often much more affordable. This is because we march to the beat of our own drum, and aren’t slave to a corporate HQ. We treat each individual client as exactly that, an individual. We’ll never take a “one size fits all” approach to automotive care, whether we’re providing car servicing, MOT testing or bodywork repairs.
