During the time running the business our client has built up excellent relationships with customers, resulting in a lot of repeat trade and excellent reviews on Google. Customers stating ‘The best garage I have ever used by far. Recommended to many friends, and everyone has been very impressed. Honest and trustworthy. The main dealers could learn a thing or two from Autopoint.’ And ‘Excellent customer service! Happy to help, kept the work on my car relevant and didn't go looking for "money making" work.
