Latest Check-Ins

not so much a land Rover shop anymore and more of a Toyota. Also, this is a vocational technical school. Be prepared to have 3+ people working on your car and a few more watching.

For us, had the u joints replaced; had to stay with the car to make sure it was done properly. they were only going to fix one (best to replace both at the same time). they initially installed the prop shaft backwards. had to push to get the parts, even then it took 3 hours. which by the way are highly overpriced. then had to argue their labor, they wanted to charge me for 6 hours, claiming that fetching parts is billable labor... got it down to a reasonable 2.

in short, watch everything being done to your car.

had insufficient work on Friday. stuff was reduced and they made all but not the main things. stay with your car until you spoke with the supervisor! !!!!

Still good, big garage, reliable. All kinds of off roads under repair. Not visible from main street. Opposite church on main road.

We went with a Landrover and Toyota Prado and the service was great. They even cleaned our car!

The Garage is professional and reliable.
They are fixing all kind of cars and trucks, but are specialised in Toyota and Landrover

This place is highly recommendable for any issues with your car. We made a general checkup on our Landrover and engine oil change including oil-filter and other small repairs for 230'000 TSH.

Seemed reliable and have good service. Can get a safari check for 35,000 - glad we did BC mec noticed that the brake cylinder was on its way out, and replaced some bushes. A bit pricey though, tried to charge us for 6 hours labour on the car between 12 and 5 (not only impossible, but no lunch break in Africa? please...) but at least the service was quick and we were back in the road.

Great garage. They are specialised in Land Rover but fix all makes of 4x4. It's mission run and reliable.
