I like living in Barnsley
« on: 08 November 2017, 20:38:27 »

The brakes on my car have squealed since I got it. Not enough to annoy the neighbours, but enough to annoy me. Took it to a local indie garage for them to strip/clean/adjust, whatever. Dropped it off at half ten this morning and waited at home for the phone call. He rang me about one o’clock to say it was ready.
When I got there he said he could find nothing wrong. He cleaned them off and put some copper grease between pads and calipers and, after a quick drive they seemed ok. I asked him how much that would be and he said.....nowt, lad, it didn’t need any parts. I gave him £20 for his trouble and came away amazed. The brakes now seem fine.  :)

But does Barnsley like you living there ?  :D

My local garage is the same tbh. Very helpful, knowledgeable, only makes any money out of me when I pay him for MOT, but doesn't minding helping in any way if I ask.

It is good when you find a garage like that,my Merc goes to my local Vauxhall dealership for its MOT test they always looked after my Omega when I had it , and don't look for unnecessary work , great waiting area with drinks (free) and mags + viewing area , also probably helps that the manager used to be a neighbour until recently.
