Great garage
Click to read review
I've used Hearn Bros for about 3 years now for repairs, MOT's and services. I will never go anywhere else; they're honest, complete work quickly and to a high standard and charge fairly. They're also genuinely nice blokes who are very easy to deal with. Highly recommended.

Learnt about Hearn Bros 25 years ago after I fell out with the main dealer doing my servicing (why would ANYONE pay those prices?). My wife & I are fans of Japanese cars, and Matt & his team have looked after our Suzuki & Hondas to our complete satisfaction & beyond ever since. Car servicing is now just one of those items in life which we have filed away in the "sorted" box. Might not be your cup of tea if you want a garage with spotless, flashy premises (which your bill would doubtless reflect), but otherwise five stars all round.

They are honest and reliable and there are no hidden charges.

When my car broke down last year they went above and beyond to get it repaid in super quick time after it was towed in from Essex

This garage was such an Amazing find.
I had a problem with my car I had been led to believe via internet forums etc would cost at the very least £100 to get sorted. When I asked the garage for a ball park figure they said until they had a chance to investigate they could not give me one but from my description of the problem it would not be less than £60. Imagine my pleasant surprise when I received a txt later that day saying the job had been completed and invoiced for £24. On collecting my car the very nice mechanic even took the time to show me how if the problem happened again I could with the right tools do the job myself.
Highly Recommend.

I'm lucky that I live so close to a great garage; the service they supply cannot be faulted as they have gone beyond being greatly skilled mechanics to even delivering my car back to my home when I've been unable to get back to London in time to collect it from them. Thanks guys.

I have been meaning to write a review for Hearn Bros for a while simply because I have never visited a garage that I feel embodies everything you could ask for in one place - really good value, professional work done quickly and to a high standard and fantastic personal service.

I have been a customer for many years and as a young woman who knows nothing about cars - I never feel that I am being ripped off or condescended too. Whenever I phone up they are friendly and know exactly who I am and the car I own without me having to tell them.

On the 28 Dec last year I was meant to be driving my nieces and nephews back home and the battery was dead. I phoned them in a bit of a state and ten mins later they were outside my house and had the battery going - and at no charge to me because I was a customer of theirs.

I cannot recommend their services highly enough. Thank you Hearn Bros for being so fantastic.

We've been using Hearn Bros for years now and are so lucky to have them as our local garage. They really know what they're doing and are absolutely trustworthy, helpful, and reliable. They go the extra mile, and we fully understand why people who move far away still return to them to have their cars serviced.

We just had a battery that needed to be replaced. They were very busy and warned us it might take a couple of days, but managed to do it the same day we rang - not only that, they came to our road to jump-start it and returned it to the same place.

They're one in a million.

Matt, who heads up the team, clearly understands that his customers value his personal and close attention. I've recommend Hearn Bros to family and friends and they've never been disappointed. Keep it up Matt and Co. you're doing a great job!

I have used this garage for 2 MOT's now and work inbetween for an older car. They treat my car as special as my attachment to it. Car garages are not usually a comfort zone for most women but Matt and his crew are always so professional and courteous that I never hesitate to ask him the most basic of car questions or concerns over my vehicle. His prices are always fair and competitive. The only reason the overall rating is not the full five stars is because it would be good to get a Loyalty card for us dedicated customers offering say an annual discount of a small percentage on servicing !!

They are a fantastic team, courteous and polite (and no talking down to women drivers) and I have every confidence in them and their advice. There is no hard sell, just the facts, and the work is carried out speedily and to a high standard. I would wholeheartedly recommend this garage (and have done so).

They've always been quick to sort things out. They've always given me an honest opinion about what is or isn't worth repairing. I've always known how much something is going to cost me and the final bill was then what I'd been quoted.
They're flexible and try and accommodate dropping off or picking up at funny times. They're friendly and helpful!

Garage services in brixton? Hearn Bros Ltd (garage services) rock! even if your not living in brixton but within london, i recommend you drive to Hearn Bros Ltd for their honest & stellar garage services.

i have been holding on soooooo hard to my mother's car which i drove sadly down to brixton from edinburgh. though i rarely drive it (forecourt parking wars :( , it reminds me of memorable cruising times with her. finding a honest garage service was daunting.

For the past 4 years, Hearn Bros (garage services in brixton) have looked after my mother's car so honestly, caringly and with such sweet friendliness. i wished my mother could have used Hearn Bros (and met the charming gentleman), as i think now, her past garages took her for rides!

i rarely write reviews but the Hearn Bros gentlemen who have looked after her car and been so sweet with me, hugely deserve my heart felt warm review (and oops a hug :) i so have, and do recommend everyone to this ace & honest brixton garage service

I first went to Hearn Bros. several years ago, as they were recommended by WHICH; since then, they have repaired both my husbands' Peugeot (17 years old!) and my MAZDA MX5 (half the age ...) and kept both cars running smoothly. The service is second to none, with Matt and his team being prepared to go out of their way to look after the smallest of problems which means that both cars (touch wood!) do not break down...
I cannot recommend Hearn Bros. enough: they are not only thoroughly reliable and impeccably honest, but there exists a rare team spirit with each and every one contributing to a great friendly atmosphere. Long may such a traditional family-run garage continue to survive in London ...

My car was serviced and MOT'd that day. The keys were left secure at the pub next door, so I could collect after work hours. Very efficient and thorough turnaround.

I was updated on the vehicles status as soon as it was available and told exactly where my car could be collected from.

I would ALWAYS come back to Hern Bros, they are a fantastic garage.

The air conditioning on my Honda failed. ATS re-charged it but that didn't work so took it to a Honda dealership who charged me £60 and took three hours to tell me that I needed to spend £1700 on a new compressor and fitting!!! I went back to ATS to ask if they would fit a compressor if I bought one on line and they recommended me to Matt @ Hearn Bros. I booked the car in and, as their supplier didn't have one in stock, they were happy to accept the one I could buy from AutoAirConParts. All now sorted and I have a cool car again at a fraction of the dealership quotation! Will definitely use them in the future.

Last November 2014 I was parking my car on the way to work and suddenly it jerked and went dead. Matt came up (8:15AM) to have a look and gave me advice on it for nothing and it was sorted. More recently, I went to a carwash and the guys lost a spring in the gas cap - I was at a gas station almost on empty and couldnt get the door open. I called Matt - he said drive it in and he would fix it and he did for No Charge. I've been going to this garage for about 10 years or so and the guys are fantastic - they will only do the necessaries AND they've been driving my car home and parking it for me. They are fair, reasonable and will give you honest advice and work. These guys deserve all the accolades I can give. (thanks Matt!)

I have finally found a garage I can trust. I never write reviews but this place has inspired me to write one. The service is outstanding, fairly priced and they are super fast and so productive. I'm normally chasing other garages I have used in the past for my car back, with Herne Bros Ltd they send you a prompt text with the cost and let you know it's ready for collection ASAP. I have two vehicles and they won't be going anywhere else from now on. A big thank you to the whole team. Well done on a great business!!

Took in my 1998 jag xj8 for a service after getting a load of quotes of which this was easily the cheapest. Rang to confirm it included new plugs (eight of them!) and he said it shouldn't but he would stand by his quote and include them in the price. Left the car with him for about four hours and when I picked it up the service was done, book stamped, and they'd even replaced a perished breather pipe under the bonnet without even mentioning it. Will definitely keep going back here for servicing as long as I have the motor.

I lived in Brixton in the 90s and had been driving for five years with poor experiences at London garages when I discovered Hearn Bros, and for the first time looking after my car suddenly became straightforward. Now that I am in SE27 and have a different car, I have returned to Hearn Bros, and have discovered the same good manners and straightforward approach. My car has been serviced within two days of calling, with a long standing problem solved and an itemised invoice supplied. Job done!

When I moved to Brixton in 1972 I decided to 'try' the nearest garage - Hearn Bros - for MOT, service and repairs.
Apart from a couple of years when I was out of London, I have been happy
to use it ever since. It has always been a family-run business, and although,
during that time it has passed from Richard to Matthew the standard of
service hasn't changed one bit.
Also during that time I have trusted them to service and arrange bodywork
repairs on several different makes and models: always with the same good
quality workmanship at very fair prices.
Highly recommended!

Being female and not knowing much about cars, I have been taken for a ride by other garages in the past. Glad to say this is no more after a colleague who does know about cars recommended Hearn Bros to me nearly 15yrs ago. I have used them ever since (except when I have bought a brand new car that has a Dealer's service included for a period of time).

They do an honest job at an honest price. I wouldn't go anywhere else - always very pleased with the work and service I receive.

After reading all the good reviews I took my car in for an MOT and a replacement wing mirror. The guys were friendly, the service was really efficient and at a very reasonable cost. I asked for some advice on some other things, definitely got the impression that they are just honest, no-nonsense and know exactly what they are doing. As they haven't done any major repair work for me yet, I can't really comment on their level of expertise, but they left a great impression. I would definitely go back and would recommend the garage to others.

It's been a big year for my battered old car and Hearn Bros. On a country road I hit a deer and demolished the front end. Having sourced the parts from a scrap yard, I passed them on to Matt and the boys to fit, which they did in less than a day, including fitting new headlights, radiator and hand-crafting new radiator mounts! Total cost around £400 all in - close to what the car's worth, but a fraction of what replacing it with something equally reliable would be.

Today I'm fresh back from the triumph of another's year MOT. Failed on shock absorbers which were fitted without any fuss and the car left outside the house for me to smile at when I came home from work.

I will never use another place in London. If Carlsberg made garages....

I have been coming to Hearn Bros for just over 25 years. I would never consider going anywhere else, they just do exactly what they say they'll do, in very good time, always with a friendly and polite manner, and for a great price. I was lucky to find them as a novice in London all those years ago - they just happened to be near where I lived. Now that I have moved further away I still bring my car to them for all its needs. If you know nothing about engines, as I don't, it would be easy for a garage to pull the wool over my eyes and do unneccesary work but with Hearn Bros - Matt Walking and the rest of the team - I know this is never something i have to worry about. I know that they inspire great loyalty in their customers (as you can see from all the emails and letters printed out in their office) and if you try them you will see why that is. Thanks guys!

I have been using Hearn Brothers for over ten years, having been recommended by a friend. Although I've now moved house, I still go there. The service is excellent, the prices are excellent, the quality of the work is excellent. It even looks, smells and feels like a garage should.

One of the cars I have had serviced there is an unusual sports car. On one occasion it went to a specialist garage for a specialist job and their comment was "this car has been well looked after". Only once was there any kind of problem - a very simple thing - which was fixed immediately without any fuss.

I recommend Hearn Brothers unreservedly. If you are looking for a garage, you just found it.

I have been using Hearn Bros for a couple of years, for MOT, service and on this final visit, for repairs.

Each time I've had to visit them, I've been impressed with their friendliness, their knowledge of the problems I've had and their recommendations. I have found them to be honest and trustworthy each time. My latest visit was to repair suspension arm problems, and they carried this out quickly and to my satisfaction. They are always polite, and happy to discuss the issue at hand and offer solutions to any problems.

I'm also impressed with the fact that they speak to me as they would a male customer, there's no "little woman" condescension here!

Their pricing is fair and the work is always completed as per their estimate. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

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.

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.

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.

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.
