In this week of all weeks, I have seen so many places increase charges, reduce variety and much more to gain as much as possible out of the influx of tourists.
I was therefore absolutely delighted to have my faith in my local traders renewed by a visit to my local garage.
My friend had driven up from London and was due to return this weekend. Unfortunately there appeared to be a problem with the car during his stay. Keen to get it sorted out before starting his drive home I called John from Auto and Plant Garage Services in Hunter Street.
John was very understanding of the phone call which gave him very little information apart from my desire to get this car fixed, it had to drive to London and it was making a noise. He offered to have a look that day and if it was possible he would fix it the next day.
As good as his word, it is now the next day, the car is fixed and will happily make it’s way back to London tomorrow.
I cannot tell you how much I appreciate the efforts John made to ensure things worked out and his professionalism in still being my local garage when he could have taken advantage of our need for this car to be fixed.
I take my hat of to him and his desire to be a good local garage who treats the customer right.
