Free Car Repairs

We don’t charge labour for minor car repairs that only take a minute or two. Examples include changing bulbs, fuses and wiper blades.

Assessments & Road Tests

Before all repairs (excluding minor repairs), we take every vehicle on a road test with the customer to ensure that we are able to correctly identify the problem(s). We will then give you an estimate before starting work on the repairs. We can photograph the repair at your request and send the pictures via text or email. Please inform us if you would like this service prior to the repairs being carried out. Where appropriate we also keep the old parts to show you once the work is completed. Regardless of your level of automotive knowledge, we will always take the time to explain everything to you so that you fully understand what needs to be done and why. We will also explain the difference between what is vital and what is optional at any given point in time.


At Cory’s Car Repairs, you have a choice; we can either fit manufacturer’s original parts or “original equipment quality” parts (OE parts). As a rule, we fit OE parts because they are made to the same or better specifications as the manufacturer’s original parts, but if you prefer we will fit original parts – just tell us which you prefer when you book. Either way, your warranty will not be affected, because the law as it stands currently, says so.

Parts Availability

We can source most parts for a huge range of vehicles the same day, which means that if you bring your vehicle to us in the morning, we can usually have the repairs completed by the end of the day. If we need to order something that we cannot get the same day we will let you know as soon as we know.

Makes and Models

We repair all makes and models of cars and light commercial vehicles. Regardless of whether your pride and joy is a 15 year-old Fiesta or a 2 month-old Bentley, it will be in safe and capable hands.

Qualifications and Experience

Our technicians are all fully qualified and highly experienced on a huge range of vehicles.

Free Reminder Service

When you have a routine task that needs carrying out on your car, we can send you a reminder by email or SMS text message. This service is free to all customers. It can be for anything you like and can be set by date or mileage. Our system is automated so you need never forget things like replacing a cam belt on time again. Just ask at reception or give us a call for more details.
