Car Servicing, MOT Testing & Car Repairs in Henley-on-Thames

Your Questions Answered


Is it true modern independent garages are cheaper than larger workshops?

This is a question that doesn’t have a specific answer and we can only speak for ourselves. What we can tell you is that dealership garages tend to have higher overheads to absorb and must factor in unpaid warranty work. This means their garage services, that may include garage repairs, are often higher. At our own workshop near Henley-on-Thames, we always try to beat main dealerships and other independent garages in the local areas on price.


Are your mechanics as good as those working at dealerships?

Yes. In fact, many mechanics working at independent garages will have served apprenticeships at a main dealership or will have received equivalent training at an independent outlet. Some of the best mechanics in the industry work at independent garages and our team is no exception. Each mechanic working for us has initial and ongoing training in car repairs, car servicing, MOT testing, replacing tyres and a whole range of other garages services. Our workmanship is completed to a standard that inspires confidence.


Are your garage repairs likely to better those of your competitors?

We’re confident enough to guarantee our car repairs and our car servicing work with full parts and labour warranties. This owes much to the talent in our team but we’re also happy to provide reassurance with our garage repairs because, like all good garages in the Henley-on-Thames area, we only use manufacturer-specified or OEM equivalent parts. Whether you need replacement tyres, brakes or clutches, we never use low-cost patterned parts on any of our repairs unless asked to do so by the customer.


Does all of this make you the best local choice for garage services?

We like to think so, of course, but we prefer to let our customers do the talking and they inevitably do. This is reflected not just in repeat business, but also in the volume of car repairs, car servicing, MOT testing, replacement tyres, garage repairs and other garages services our mechanics undertake for new customers. If you would like to join our growing portfolio of customers in Henley-on-Thames, contact us for a prompt appointment.


Which type of car servicing package will I need?

Choosing between scheduled and interim car servicing is easy. You have the option to follow manufacturer recommendations for your vehicle or you can come to our garage annually or on a six-monthly basis, based on the number of miles you cover. If you drive less than 6,000 miles every six months, an annual service will suffice. Drive more in this period and we recommend interim car servicing to support your full annual service. Frequent servicing helps in preserving important engine parts.


Is MOT testing cheaper if I combine it with a service?

We offer excellent rates on combined garage services but even if you prefer to book in for MOT testing as an independent service, you’ll still be charged much less than the recommended DVSA price. Hennell Vehicle Services near Henley-on-Thames, provide MOT testing in the Class IV category and welcome you to wait in a comfortable viewing area should you prefer to stay with your car. Our mechanics perform MOT tests for all passenger vehicles and most light commercial models.


I need new tyres. Is this a service you provide?

Yes. We stock a large stock range of branded and budget tyres including many from manufacturers you’ll already know and trust. Having such a large range readily available ensures a faster fitting and even the possibility for Henley-on-Thames motorists to visit us without an appointment if we have somebody available to help you. Quotations for tyres include the cost of weighting and balancing.
