All I can say as a female who knows nothing about cars and has been stung before by garages, and is highly suspicious of them, I would HIGHLY recommend Mike Dean. His friendly manner, professionalism and personality cannot be beaten. He took time to explain exactly what was wrong with my car with no nonsense or big fancy words.
I found Mike Dean through Yell.com and he had a very good reviews, so I phoned Mike on Tuesday morning around 9ish, and he came out later that morning and diagnosed that the clutch had gone on my Citroen Picasso Xsara, (my heart sank thinking about the cost). He came back 10 minutes later with a quote, which could have knocked me over with a feather. I accepted the price and arrangements were made for him to collect it on Thursday afternoon. He arrived at around 5.30 and lo and behold I had my car back around 9.30pm complete with a new clutch fitted. As already stated I would HIGHLY recommend Mike and will certainly be using him for all my car needs. A massive, big thank you.

Fast, friendly and convenient service. Mike had me back on the road in no time! The mobile aspect of Mike's service is very convenient if you are busy or only have access to one car. After meeting for the initial diagnosis and consultation I handed my keys over and Mike fixed my car while I was at work. I came back from work with my car on my drive and I was ready to go. No need to arrange to pick it up from a garage - Perfect! As a woman, who is clueless about cars, I often feel intimidated taking my car into the garage alone and usually wait until someone else can come with me. But with Mike's friendly nature, clear explanations and mobile service I didn't feel intimidated at all! Price was great too. I would definitely use this service again and would recommend him to everyone.

Found Mike's details on Yell online and called him up. I have a very old Toro sit on tractor mower which is too large to take to a garage and none of my local garages would even consider coming out to do a home service. So on discussing my requirements with Mike, he asked me for the make and model number of the tractor. To my amazement, he called me up a few days later and said that he had went online and using the details I gave him, he had managed to work out which air, fuel and oil filters my tractor needed, to be replaced during the service. So he came out the following day, fully armed with the new parts and within an hour had fully serviced my machine. He was very efficient, courteous and not at all expensive considering he put all the extra effort in to find the parts before coming to service my machine at home. I can thoroughly recommend Mike and feel confident he will find the right parts for your vehicle, no matter what!

Finally got round to this review...I would recommend this mechanic he is reliable, friendly and has a good manner about him. He had the job sorted before he even had a spanner...Im sure he had sonar dish hearing!! He has a lot of experience. Really happy with the cost and the service, and found it all hassle free. Well recommended.

We had Mike come and look at a Megane it wouldnt start and the sensors were tripping all over the place. We had spend hours and hours on it replacing parts and stripping it down. We were at our wits end. Turned out that we were part of the problem with our interfering. We were tripping the sensors. In less than an hour Mike cleared the sensors and located the problem. A FAULTY BATTERY. I am happy to report we replaced the battery ourselves and the car is up and running much to the delight of the nephew. Mike took £30 for his time. Now this is one hell of a guy he could have ripped us of by coming up with all kinds of problems which we would have happily paid out for as nephew driving us crazy. Would defintely use this guy again.

Such a good service! As the title says, I've created an account just so I could leave a review! Unfortunately my car just wouldn't start yesterday, called Mike today at 12pm, he was there at 4pm, diagnosed the issue and fixed my car right up! Gave good advice on what I should in future to prevent my problem from happening again. The service was quick, Mike was lovely and the charge was a decent price! I couldn't rate him high enough!

I found Mike through Yell.com. I phoned him and we scheduled a time. He phoned to let me know that he could come earlier, which was great as I was stuck.
He arrived promptly and got my car started quickly. The charge was very reasonable. I would highly recommend Mike.
