At the Atherley Garage, we offer our customers a complete range of professional garage services. Based in Shirley, a western suburb of Southampton in Hampshire, we undertake car servicing, MOT testing and engine diagnostics for our highly valued private and trade customers. We have been providing garage services from our fully equipped workshop since 1978 and much of our business comes from repeat customers who continually place their trust in the hands of our highly skilled mechanics and technicians.
All of the car mechanics at the Atherley Garage are extensively trained and fully qualified to work on all passenger cars, light commercial vehicles and 4X4 models. Most of our employees have worked for main dealerships at some stage in their careers and the experience that they bring to our business sets us apart from many other garages in Shirley. Our adaptability and our commitment to completing all work to exact manufacturer specifications ensure that we always deliver dealership-standard services at fair, transparent and competitive rates – and that’s a promise!
Our mechanics take road safety seriously and nothing is more important than the welfare of our customers. If you have noticed a significant deterioration in braking performance, slowing speeds or the noise that your brakes make when stopping, visit the Atherley Garage in Shirley today. We’ll inspect your brakes without charge, taking care to check for signs of wear in the pads, discs, shoes or drums. If your vehicle requires attention, we will only quote you for the work it needs and we’ll never push up the price of the final bill by recommending unneeded replacement parts.
The same levels of attention go into clutches and transmission systems. Customers in Shirley who experience slipping when changing gear should always have their vehicle inspected immediately. Slipping is usually indicative of worn clutches and continuous driving could cause vital engine components to shear. This allows small metal particles to spread throughout the transmission system and gearbox, causing premature wear to important vehicle parts that will eventually need replacing.
Our business has enjoyed continued growth over the past 36 years thanks to our progressive approach to changing technology. Customers in Shirley choose us for engine management and diagnostics because we’re always prepared to invest into the latest equipment at the earliest possible stage. Much of the technology at our garage is manufacturer and dealership approved. Once again, this means that customers can use us as an alternative to dealership garages and still enjoy high-end engine diagnostics without the hefty price tag.
