Comments: I have been using 1st Stop Cars for over 15 years for all my car repairs, servicing & MOT's, following a recommendation from a friend. Best decision I ever made. Kevin and his staff are so friendly and above all trustworthy. They call me to explain what's needs doing before they carry out the work. Their prices are very reasonable and they are super quick. When they say they will have it done by a certain time they always do. I would never change garages and can whole heartedly recommend 1st Stop Cars to anyone.

Comments: I have been visiting Kevin's Garage for the past 3 years, as It is ideal as I work in Rochford. I find the whole team that work at the garage very friendly and approachable. As a women i do not feel intimidate as some men can do that within that sort of environment. I find that once the car has been looked at Kevin will call and advise me on what needs doing and the cost, which i have always found affordable. I would defiantly recommend the 1st Stop Cars as 1st class service.

Comments: Absolutely blown away be the honesty and professionalism of the staff, was really happy that'my original quote was lowered and I was informed as some garages try to take advantage of female drivers, I won't be using anyone in future and I highly recommend.
