"Superb treatment from guys that care about their customers as well as the cars. Trustworthy and honest."

These guys saved my car and my sanity. With several faults on my Volvo V70 2005 including SRS a control unit codes which fail an MOT I was apprehensive to let the main VOlvo dealership loose on it. They had told me it could be several faults including a replacement SRS a control unit and new seat felt tensioners. Their policy? To change each part for a new one one at a time! The faults wouldn't clear so this was the solution! Martin at Shipham motor group swapped parts in and out from other cars using his common sense and initiative! Eventually he found that the second hand SRS a control unit I managed to find with a matching code and a second hand pretensioner fixed the problem. It would have cost over £1200 for new parts and software, but shiphams work cost a fraction. I can't thank them enough they have restored my faith in mechanics and I will now keep the car knowing I can take it to someone I trust if anything else goes wrong. He even fixed some wires on the headlight and gassed the air con then did the MOT in short I got my car back and on the road without being ripped off and I felt so grateful I felt I should try to find a review site to let others know. Ive had to open an account to do this so you know it must have been worth it! You can't go wrong with this garage if you have a Volvo then these are the guys to take it to.

"Better than excellent"

By Simon Smedley of Radstock: Shipham Volvo are better than excellent. Proof. I took my lovely old 1995 850 T5 to them a few years back thinking it needed a change. The car was fine. 200,000 miles and still going strong thanks to good maintenance by me, and mostly them, over the years. But the front seats were lacking support and giving me a bad back. Solution. 'We have a crashed car in the back sir. The seats match yours exactly. The donor car is only a few years old'. The seats were swapped and look & work a treat thanks to them. Saved me a fortune and a load of trouble swapping a known car for an unknown one and a small bucket of cash. The car passed 240,000 miles recently - the distance to the moon - and is still going strong. I can't recommend them highly enough to you and your readers. If only all garages were this good. Their website attached. I have signed up to your website and added this to the recommended garage reviews already. www.shipham.co.uk
