Very kind and nice workers. They helped me a lot with my car situation. The appointments are easy to make and they are open on Saturdays which is awesome for people who have to work during weekdays.
All in all a great experience with these guys and I recommend them.

While on a road trip, our car had became overdue on service after all the milage.
On a spontaneous notice, these guys fitted our car in the same day and refreshed it with a service (oil & filter change) and standard checks.
After about an hour we were back on the road again.
Amazing service and friendly mechanic also giving advice about the general shape of the car!


Excellent customer service friendly and polite people willing to help you the best they can and as quick as they can can repair anything from performance to general maintenance awesome company to deal with

We needed our car looked at ASAP as we presumed one of our bearings had stuffed itself and driving long distances to work was worried about the saftey of the car,

K & K General Motor Repairs was excellent, squeezed us in at very short notice and had the problem and a few other minor issues we new the car had sorted in no time,

Reasonable prices for their work and excellent customer service, highly recommend and will be sure to be back
