Horrible experience. Will never return. Totally unprofessional. Absolutely no regard for times that have been booked... for tyres via black circles or at the very least to the instructions and promised on the black circles email. The email from blackcircles confirming tyre booking states “Please arrive 5 minutes before your appointment time or your fitting may be delayed or need to be rearranged. On arrival the garage will provide an estimated time for waiting or collection of the vehicle after the tyres have been fitted” I arrived 5 minutes early as requested at 10:25. I was not furnished with any specifics of how long I would be waiting. I was simply given a vague non committal statement that the person who would be doing my tyres was finishing up another job. I then waited with an ever increasing lack of patience from my allocated time of 10:30 (thank god for free wifi and my phone) for 35 minutes until I was finally approached to be seen at 11:05. The gentlemen did apologise re the delay attributing it to the weather which I will accept (its Dec 29 and not the best weather in the north west at the moment) but within the 35 minute wait there was no discussion and management of my waiting time expectations. I handed over my keys at 11:05 and confirmed it was 2 front tyres that need replacing. The gentleman who saw to me also did not furnish me with an expected time to completion of the work. So again I waited. At 11:21, 16 minutes after the keys had been taken and I confirmed the 2 front tyres were to be replaced a man came in and asked if it was the two fronts! 16 MINUTES after I had said it was the two fronts.... wow! At 12:02 (92 minutes after my appointment time, 97 minutes after I arrived) 1 of the staff in the reception tried to up-sell me on wheel tracking while I was here. Is this part of the delay tactics to allow themselves an up-sell opportunity? £30 + VAT for tracking or £30 cash, I assume they were still going to put that £30 cash through the books for VAT purposes... The wait then continued. Finally at 12:15 the work was complete (90 minutes after my scheduled slot). Terrible from a customer service experience. I get my keys and headed back to my car to find that the front seat had a plastic sheet over it and my footwell had a sheet of paper/card full of oil from foot prints. Surely they should be removed as the last part of the job. As I removed these myself a member of staff came over and took the items from me and apologised for them not being removed. When a customer is specifically requested to be 5 minutes early and is and then specifically instructed they would be informed of how long the wait is to go through this experience is frustrating to say the least. I suggest that anyone who values their time and sanity think twice before using this place and anyone from this company reading perhaps use this feedback to improve customers experience. Also when in 2017 is it appropriate to hear the staff of a company say the FUCK word in front of customers multiple times? If this is some legacy throwback to the boys club that is the garage world then hopefully as new generations come up they will act more professionally. You never hear this sort of language at a main dealer type place. I have worked in retail for 25 years and would never get away with providing this kind of shoddy customer experience. There are multiple opportunities for this place to improve if my experience is anything to go on and I hope they do to make future customers return as I will not. This has been my most horrific customer experience of 2017. I will not return here ever and again suggest you think twice before using this place.read more

Never used arches before but they were recommended to me for a new clutch on my golf gti. I'm always wary of trusting... companies I've never had dealings with as I love my car but was put at ease when I left my keys with the nice young gentleman in the garage. I had a few calls from Phil updating me along the way and from my car going in at 8.30am i collected it at 1pm the same day. I can honestly say my car feels like a new car againread more

We brought our Audi in for some new tyres & also a full service. Everyone at the Arches garage are so polite &... helpful. What's more this garage is run professionally on every level with the staff genuinely caring about the standard of their work etc. We can't recommend this garage enough, we've always found that finding a garage where you could actually trust everything that they say & do is very hard but here at, "The Arches" you can relaxing knowing that they pride themselves on not only their workmanship but also their reputation. Thanks again everyone for all your help. We'll be back again 🙂read more

Went in with my wipers not working and in a panic as it's illegal to drive without considering I have to get home after... work 25 miles away. From calling on the phone to actually driving out the gate everything was professional/ easy going and relaxing. Problem fixed what cost nothing. Just a bolt loose. Due it's mot and other work in next few months will happily drop it off again! It's hard to find guys you can trust and you've just won my business in future!read more
