Servicing and body repairs

We are often asked why we don't have our own service facility.

By using the main dealers and a network of experienced specialists we can match each car to the best garage. The people who service a 25 year old 3.2 Carrera aren`t necessarily the best people to use for a 4 year old 911 or Cayenne and visa versa. We also pool information from the different experts allowing us to build up an extensive knowledge bank of issues which can affect the Porsches, not just problems which have affected our our own vehicles. By servicing in house we would be isolated and have limited exposure. This is particularly relevant as new models are introduced.

Working as we do also ensures a qualified third party casts their eye over our cars prior to their delivery. If you do your own in house servicing the temptation to turn a blind eye every now and again is often too strong to ignore. We can also police service work, ultimately if there was a problem we could go elsewhere, with your own service facility you are stuck.

We pride ourselves on our technical knowledge and for a car dealer our noble leader wouldn`t make a bad techie!   We have our own full diagnostic facilities in house which allow us to interrogate all models up to and including the current 991 model 911 and current Cayman, Boxster and Cayenne.

If you want to know where to get your Porsche fixed then these non franchised people may be of some use. We haven`t used them all but where we have we`ve included a few comments. If you have had experience of any other chaps then let us know and we will let the rest of the world know. As with all things make your own minds up with them, for every one who sings praises there will be someone else who moans, we don`t judge, we just pass on the info !!

Having known Mike and the team for a number of years I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and the service they provide. We have a number of mutual customers who understandably feel the same. A respected company with a great depth of knowledge.
