A local gem

I honestly didn't think garages like this still existed. We used this guide to find a recommended local garage to do a just-in-time MOT last year. Hearn Bros booked us in the following day and were brilliant.
I've been prompted to write a review as this year, I received a text from Hearn Bros reminding me that the car needed an MOT and we booked it in with time to spare!!
They know their stuff and are pleasant and reliable with it. What more could you want???

Simply brilliant a garage you can rely on.

I have been using Hearn Bros garage for over 6 years. Every year they service, mot and lovingly do what every else is necessary to keep my elderly, but essential Vauxhall on the road.

They are always respectful of my limited budget and talk through what has been done without being patronising and in language that you can understand.

It is always a pleasure to do business with them.

Personal, quality service - 100% reliable.

I love Hearn Bros! Matt and Phil are always friendly and knew my name after just one visit. They can always fit you in, get the job done efficiently and quickly and have even dropped the car back for me when I've been at home with small children and can't fetch it. Can't recommend them enough.

Excellent

I have been using this garage for the best part of 7 years and through this time have brought many cars through!

Matt is always reliable, good value - never does work that doesn't need doing and I feel entirely confident in bringing my car to him.

I used to be up the road and even though I have moved to South East London, I still go back as I know I'll get decent, honest and fantastic service.

Very reliable, professional and good value for money

I've been going to Hearn Bros for several years now and am very happy with the service that they provide.
They are always really pleasant to deal with (no tooth-sucking or patronising behaviour that female drivers often experience when having their car fixed). Hearn Bros feels like a good old-fashioned family business.
I know next to nothing about car maintenance but compared to garages that I've used in the past they are cheaper, quicker & always get the job done effectively
I've recommended them to my friends who are also very happy with the service that they provide.
Absolutely no complaints and would definitely recommend

Brilliant: reliable, friendly, efficient, knowledgeable, honest

Like other reviewers, we've been using this garage for about fifteen years and wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. Their work is excellent; they don't pretend you need repairs that are unnecessary; they explain things clearly and are totally unpatronising; they are friendly and helpful and go out of their way to give excellent service; their charges are reasonable. If only all businesses - let alone garages - were like this . . . .

A joy. Life-enhancing. Brilliant. I would never go anywhere else.

I have been going to Hearn Bros for at least 10 years. They are honest, reliable, highly skilled and very fairly priced. They work to a very high standard. All work is done with the right parts, the right equipment, and properly done and properly finished. They are efficient - they do what they say they'll do exactly when they say they'll do it. They communicate well - if they say they'll ring you, then they'll ring you. I am always amazed at how much they do in so few hours. My bills are entirely reasonable. There is no jargon, no bamboozling, nobody tries to make you feel stupid for not understanding cars. There is straightforward explanation and clear transparent billing.
As if that wasn't enough, they are also lovely people. As far as I can see they know all their customers by name, and always have time to say hello and ask after the children. I actually enjoy taking the car to the garage. I don't know what more you could want in a garage. And as the headline says, I would never go anywhere else. Brilliant.

Will not let you down, don't cut corners and you get good value for money.

A trustworthy Company that I have used for many years, never let me down, very fair with pricing, never use questionable parts and things that need replacing for a service ARE replaced. Never leave one feeling tucked up!

I travel 20 miles to use this garage because a decent job is done and am never ripped off.

Used to work across the road from this garage and have 45 plus years of reliable servicing, MOTing and repairs they never let me down (nor the car). They service my everyday car and They have looked after my 'E type' for the last 37 years, it's still going strong thanks to Matt & his men. Altogether an honest and friendly Company.

Very reliable, can deal with modern & classic cars without problem in a friendly & professional manner.

I have used this Company since 1966 through three generations of honest and decent owners. I started with a 1956 zephyr convertible which they managed very well at keeping on the road, it was almost dead when I purchased it. They are now servicing my Renault Scenic & a 2012 SAAB convertible. They always do their very best with all demand at a seriously good price

Fantastic and courteous service

I first used this garage back in the 1980's and was so impressed I persuaded family members and friends to use them. They have never let me or anyone I know down and they are always honest and upfront with their diagnosis and prices. Never any nasty shocks when it comes to the Bill.

I live about 12 miles from the garage and there are many local ones but I wont use anyone else. I simply don't trust anyone else. I know nothing about cars but am never treated as an idiot and always with courtesy and honesty.

When my dad was too ill to drive, they even collected and delivered his car back home to him as it needed some work - true dedication and service

Good luck guys!

Completely reliable, thorough and polite

I have used Hearn Brothers for 25 years, and they have never let me down.

They've kept a succession of cars (Beetle, Escort, Montego, Galaxy) in good shape and always been prompt and efficient.

The staff are polite and thorough, and I've always been specially impressed with their communication. They tell you what's wrong, what needs fixing, what it will cost and how long it will take. There's no fuss, and no surprises.

They are everything I would want in a garage.

Excellent service with a courteous honest approach and really fair pricing.

I've been going to Hearne Bros for the last ten years and in all that time have never found Matt and the guys at the garage to be anything less than terrific.

They've never let me down in getting a job finished on time, have delivered the car back to my door on occasion, have always been able to give good sound advice (without being either condescending or blinding me with mechanics - not something every garage offers to a woman driver) and most importantly, everything they've ever done has been really well executed. No problems afterwards, no mysterious price hikes in the middle of a job.

I've always recommended Hearne Bros to friends and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone on this site.

Great garage, fab staff won't use anyone else.

I have used Hearn Bros for over 30 years & my family has for considerably longer. I have given them a few challenges recently but they have sorted out the problem & got me back on the road. Great staff & very knowledgeable. I have moved away from the area but continue to use them. Will be back for my MOT next month.

Best of a bunch.

Over the years we have used Independant garages who specialise in Marques. Firela motors in stock well were great for fiat. T&T in Fulham were great for Audi. However, now we have found a garage that we can stick with no matter what car we choose.

Friendly and trustworthy - highly recommended!

We have been using Hearn Bros for more years than I care to remember and have always found them to be highly professional, efficient, friendly and trustworthy. Always willing to go the extra mile for their customers and always ready to give helpful advice. Highly recommended!

can't imagine taking my car anywhere else

I am the very attached owner of a 25 year old BMW. The guys at Hearn Brothers have looked after us for quite possibly 10 years, maybe even longer. I have only praise for their work - efficient, decent, honest and fair. Can't recommend them enough. My car continues to drive like a dream. Although I have recently moved from the immediate neighbourhood I will continue to go back.

Not capable of improvement

We have used Hearn Bros for years. Their service is personal, friendly and utterly trustworthy. They go the extra mile to be helpful, even coming out to our house when we've had problems in the past. We wouldn't dream of going to another garage.

Professional service by great staff

I have used Hearn Bros for over 30yrs. All my families cars have been either serviced or repaired, normally the same day, by competent and helpful staff. No hidden extras. As long as you do not want a vending machine in reception,I will continue to use this garage and recommend to anyone who asks.

Best run and friendly family firm

I've been frequenting Hearn Bros Ltd since 1988 and have entrusted the health and wellbeing of every car I've owned since then to them. They are a great bunch of lads, who have even welded my metal bed frame back together for me recently! I have recommended them to several people who now take their cars there.

First class service at tourist class prices

Having read about Hearn Brothers on the Honest John website we booked our Mini Cooper in for them to investigate a water leak and overheating problem. When I got there we had an intelligent diagnostic discussion, followed soon after by a telephone call and estimate. We ended up paying £323 for a new radiator, thermostat & housing and new antifreeze. The car was ready the same day. Hearn Brothers is reassuringly old fashioned and as long as you don't mind not having a coffee machine in the reception and a valet service then there is no better garage in London.

Honest, friendly and efficient: based on over 10 years' use

I'm lucky enough to live round the corner from this place, which occupies what were once the stables for the White Horse pub on Brixton Hill.

I've been using them to service and MOT my ageing little car for a long long time. They do what they say they will do, and the car is always ready when they say it will be. If the price is looking high for something, they'll come up with advice to make it cheaper.

When my car blew a fuse that melted the fuseblock, they took one look at it and said if they repaired it they'd replace the block with a new part, which would cost over £100. On the other hand, they said, there's a vehicle electrician down the road who can safely rewire it for £30.

They always call if something crops up during a service or MOT to consult about prices and bills are fully itemised and not horrific by London standards.

As noted elsewhere, it's cash or cheque only, though they are now geared up for the 21st century, accepting online bank transfers too.

Oh, and if you need your keys back in a hurry they'll park your car on an unrestricted parking street and leave your keys behind the bar of the pub, allowing you to settle up later.

It's what a garage should be.

Good old fashion honest service

This garage was recommended on honest John, my daughter has had her car serviced and mot'd here for the last few years, and the service is first class. Where could you trust that your 25 year old daughter would not get ripped off in London, servicing a 2007 318d BMW. Recommended to all her friends, believe it or not, there are still some honest tradesmen still put there.

Still going strong after all those years

I was so delighted to see a positive review for Hearn Brothers. I first took my car there way back in 1982 when I was 20-years-old. I remember it well - value for money, decent people to deal with, an all round pleasant experience. In fact, my car is in need of some body work and a service so although I now live about 50 miles from this garage, I am going to get the work done there for old times sake if nothing else.

Excellent reasonable service

My son took in his old Ford Focus for repair to rear wheel bearing. They carried out the repair at short notice and at a reasonable quoted price. Note that they only take cash (no card) but this may have been for a 23 year old boy on his first visit. Thank you, as choosing a garage in London is a 'minefield'.
