"Consistently pofessional and honest"

By A Rowe, 4 December 2018

I have been using Wheelbase on and off for several years. The service is always fuss free and super helpful and I have every confidence in their servicing and repair work. It's great to be automatically provided with a replacement vehicle whilst they are working on yours. Other VW service centres charge for the insurance on this and run checks on driving licence endorsements but Wheelbase are far more trusting and it makes the whole process super slick. All round great experience.

Wheelbase specialise in Audi's VWs etc so they know the cars inside out therefore I chose them to undertake my scheduled Oil change. The customer service I received from Andy from Check-in to Check-out was efficient and effortless and I would definitely use and recommend their services again in the future.

I have now used Wheelbase for all servicing and repairs on my cars for around 15 years. Colin, Andy and the rest of the crew really have an extensive knowledge of VW Group cars and always go the extra mile to ensure that you are well looked after. Outstanding, friendly service at a significantly lower price than a franchised dealer.......I wouldn't go anywhere else!

"A very friendly and accommodating garage providing excellent service and customer care. "

I have dealt with a number of garages over a period of almost 50 years and in my view Wheelbase stands out from the crowd as being right at the top for reliability, friendliness and customer care. I have no hesitation in recommending them and indeed on one occasion they were able to accommodate a friend of mine by repairing his car without delay whereas his main dealer from whom he had purchased the vehicle could not assist him for about 10 days. Big is not always beautiful. In this case small is great !

My VW Golf broke down and was towed to another garage, however, on recommendation I had it collected by Wheelbase for the repair. They were helpful and efficient and even lent me a lovely little VW Up while my car was off the road. They kept me updated with details and cost at all times. So lovely in this age of large corporate companies to be able to get personal service from knowledgable and friendly people. I just wish we had found them before.

I purchased my Audi from this excellent garage back in 2015 and have since then received excellent service on incidental running repairs.. The team have always been exceptionally quick to respond and reach a satisfory resolution that reflects the resident expertise. Customer engagement is second to none and the quality of work is excellent. Staff are friendly and helpful. A calm professionalism pervades every aspect of the operation. Highly recommended.

"Simply the best"

By Barry Jell, 3 May 2017

I was fortunate to have discovered Wheelbase 6 years ago on buying an Audi Allroad with main dealer history. Since then I cannot recommend them highly enough they are always willing at a moments notice (within reason) to fix a minor or major problem (putting petrol in a diesel) or losing the keys to my kayak locked on the roof! Wheelbase are my main reason for staying with the Audi and many friends have joined this rather elite club! No reservations simply the best. Barry Jell

My Audi A3 developed a coolant leak and the local Audi franchised garage couldn't look at it for 3 weeks. I phoned Wheelbase and was delighted to be informed that they could see my car promptly and keep me mobile with a courtesy car. The car was quickly sorted out , everything explained and a fair price charged for the repair. What more can you ask?

We have used Wheelbase on three occasions since buying our Eos earlier this year from an independent garage. On every occasion Andy, Colin and the team have offered a very friendly, helpful service with all work quoted and completed as stated. They also managed to fit us in with little notice when we needed to assess a separate fault. We have really appreciated their help, and their willingness to go the extra mile.Thank you guys.

"Wheelbase are excellent and friendly, true engineers"

By nickm689, 8 July 2016

I have used Wheelbase to service and repair Audis and VS Golfs since 1995. I was immediately struck by their honesty, expert knowledge and suggestion of best value advice. Run by 2 ex workshop managers for VW main dealers, they know everything there is to know about VAG cars. Whether it be routine servicing, a repair or vehicle purchase, they are a fount of sound advice and re-assurance. Often I have been told "Your car has A fault but don't worry we will monitor it and repair it when you have to have it done which isn't right now". Across the last 21 years, through the life of: an Audi A80, AUDI 100, 4 x A6 estates and now a Q3, a Golf for the wife and polo for the kids; they have kept us on the road, saved me £ and kept me sane. Thank you: COLIN, ANDY, JAMIE, SUE, SIMON and everyone in the workshop.

Our family have used this garage for VW servicing for as long as we can remember. Colin, Andy and co provide superb customer service, have extensive knowledge of all things VW and go out of their way to fix problems quickly, charge fairly and provide free loan cars. Best of all is dealing with someone who knows much more about our cars than we do at the point of access - no anonymous "service advisors" here. They're not the cheapest independent, but the work is done thoroughly first time around, so you get what you pay for. Recommended without hesitation

I have used Wheelbase for a decade now, usually for things that I can't do without a lift and sometimes to finish off what I started (read: messed up). Always a pleasure to come here, it's small, friendly, clean/tidy and efficient. Colin and his team are very knowledgeable, everything is explained clearly and they can talk VWs all day long!

"Superb Garage with Excellent Customer Service | Honest and Reliable | 10/10"

By badga, 12 February 2016

Coincidently Honest John is one of my neighbours and I mentioned to him that I’d taken my Mk1 Audi TT to Wheelbase in Hersham for a some repairs. I was so pleased when he turned round and explained that he had recommended them on his site. I was in the trade with my father who was a top mechanic years back. Since his passing I’ve found it hard to find a garage I trust and would happily recommend. I’ve had a few jobs done now and I can’t recommend Wheelbase enough. Customer service is great and if you want an honest garage that will save you money by telling you the truth then look no further.

"Excellent Service, price and overall experience."

By peterowland, 12 February 2016

I have a high-mileage Audi A8 that I have owned from new - it is used as a Chauffeur vehicle and always been serviced and maintained by the Main Dealer I purchased the car from. At the end of January I had issues with major vibrations with the engine and then the car died. The car was relayed to the main dealer - checked over and the quote offered to me was a new engine £14,000 and fitting £4,000. Was recommended Wheelbase by a mechanic (car is too large to fit in his shop). They organised for the car to be collected from the dealer - checked the car over, replaced one of the injectors, recommended an oil service and filter change - total bill came to just over £1,000. They checked the suspension and gave the car a clean bill of health - car drives superbly and saved myself £17,000. If you want an honest, reliable and helpful garage I cannot recommend them highly enough. Getting the car serviced with them next week - even took their invoice to the main dealer and told them to take a copy! Will be using them form now on for all work with this car! Excellent in every aspect!!

Have used this garage for over 15 years...and cannot praise it highly enough. Take the car in for servicing..and always ready on time. If anything over and above what was expected during the servicing, there is always a phone call to discuss the matter...so no shocks when collecting the car and getting the bill. A small and friendly place, where they make you feel they want your custom...rare these days. Keeps me wanting to buy VW's when I know what after-care I can get...so much better for me than a big soulless outlet

"Great service at a reasonable price. "

By TimW2012, 24 October 2012

I have used Wheelbase for servicing and repairs for the past 9 years. Unlike the franchised dealership which I used previously, they offer a great service with reasonable labour rates. All work is dealt with promptly and efficiently, costs are properly explained, and the car is always ready for collection when they say it will be. Friendly and practical advice is always available, and I never feel that work is being done or parts replaced unnecessarily. Most importantly, I always feel that my car will come back from Wheelbase better than when it went in. Having moved house, I now travel 55 miles each way to have my car serviced and repaired by them, and I can't imagine going anywhere else!
