I have used Forlong Auto’s since they started. I run two cars and have had them do all the servicing and repairs.
Their workmanship, presentation, clean workshop, and enthusiasm make it a joy to deal with them.
I encourage everyone to try their services for themselves.

I cannot recommend Forlong’s Autos enough. They have been looking after all of our family’s vehicles for over 15 years. We have found the staff to be courteous and we have appreciated their honesty. Their work has consistently been to a high standard, whether it be a WOF inspection or major engine work. My family would not go anywhere else.

Jonathan Silby

For over 4 years, Lincoln & the team have looked after me and do a fantastic job everytime. Attention to detail, clear communication and great value. Integrity and excellence in servicing, warrants & performance upgrades. Gotta be best in the Bay. Always friendly & welcoming…I highly recommend ‘Forlong’s Automotive’ to all!

How much will it cost to fix my car?

Most commonly this question is NOT accompanied by any information about the car or the specific problem that it has. First, we need to know what your car is: the year, make, and model (Colour is irrelevant), and how many kilometres it’s travelled. Second, we need to have the symptoms explained to us along with the history of this problem. Third, has anyone else attempted to repair this fault before?
Now, we may be able to give some idea of what a diagnosis would cost and the repair options. Very occasionally, we may be able to make a stab-in-the-dark guess at the repair cost, but this is NOT a quote

Do you provide Client Courtesy Cars?

Yes, for most service and repair work, a Courtesy Vehicle can be provided. Due to the demand, and to prevent disappointment, Courtesy Vehicles must be booked ahead of time, at the same time the client’s vehicle is booked in.
Courtesy Vehicles are not provided during a Warrant of Fitness Inspection. The client borrowing the Courtesy Vehicle is responsible for replacing the fuel used in Courtesy Vehicles

Do you do Warrant of Fitness Inspection?

Yes, We do Warrant of Fitness Inspections on Cars, Light Commercials, Trailers and Caravans.
Due to the busy nature of Forlong’s Automotive, a booking is required for Warrant of Fitness Inspections.
We also send out Warrant of Fitness reminders by Email.

What is the price of a Service?

Yes, Forlong’s Automotive carry out all routine servicing of all Petrol and Diesel cars and light commercials.
Yes, a price can be provided when booking the vehicle in, provided the client is able to tell us what the vehicle is, and which service is required.
Prices vary dramatically depending on the Client’s requirements and expectations. However, estimates are freely offered upon request.
