So long time dealing with Nick/Customer of - was sad to hear what happened with the bankruptcy and know how many people get impacted when a business goes. Got a slip earlier in the year to say they'd reopened of Millennium Garages. Car spring broke so took the leap.
So if you're an old customer you'd remember John - one of the younger mechanics - I realised he's been working on my car for most of the last 10 years- he's now running the place. As far as I can tell it's a whole new enterprise (no Nick involved - checked with companies house).
John's doing a great job - by the looks working uphill on sorting the pile of messes left by Nick. Extra things like taking a video of the problem with my spring and pictures of the issues so he can talk me through what he had to fix.
Nice clean invoice, clear (and much more understandable than in the past) - and I could pay super quick by bank transfer.
Would suggest giving John a go - he's got a Sisyphean task building a business in this climate.
We've started using John as well - he was always the mechanic you'd want working on your car when Nick owned the place. He knows his stuff and is much more up-front, clear, organised and trustworthy, in my opinion. We had a lot of problems with the old Millennium Garages, so I'm pleased we can bring our custom back to a local place. He's more or less having to start from the ground up in order to rebuild the client list. Good luck to him. They still don't do MOTs unfortunately (Nick never did either - he sent them out to another garage, although we never realised that at the time).
