Been here twice for parts recently, good friendly service although the computer system clearly needs updating as it takes ages waiting for it. There are a couple of very attractive ladies working here to help distract you from the wait though :)

Looking to buy a new car or a very good second hand car look no further very helpful sales staff who don't turn there back on you as soon as you buy s car. Excellent after sales will fix a problem how ever big or small. Always check anything you sign for . I have had 3 cars from brand new not had one problem or one bill that I thought was wrong. A delight to call in happy smile lovely coffee free WI FI newspapers a comfy chair very please to atmosphere.

Evans Halshaw Vauxhall Blaydon

Bridge St, Blaydon NE21 4JJ, UK – 0191 499 2200

I arrived at the showroom without a prior appointment, I was greeted with a nice friendly smile and a warm welcome. I was asked to wait until the salesman had finished off some paper work, I was then offered a coffee or tea whilst I waited. Then I was taking through which car I wanted and the specification I preferred. Once I had chosen the car and specifications it was a matter of ten minutes and all the necessary paper work was done and dusted. I was given the date my car would be ready and was thanked for my custom. It was a disability car that I ordered and was treated with total respect which they give to all customers. I'd recommend Evans Halshaw to anyone who is looking for a car, either new or second hand.

Fantastic experience from start to finish. Alex Wordsworth dealt with me and made purchasing a new Astra a really enjoyable and easy process. He kept me informed re delivery dates and was very knowledgable about the new Astra, taking me out for a test drive and giving me a great run through of the features available. I wouldn't hesitate to go back again and will do for my next new car. Thanks Alex and team at Blaydon. Great service and very friendly.

I got my car from there and I would recommend that place. The man has a good knowledge of cars and is a fair seller.

Bought a 2006 Subaru Outback from John for a fair price and was happy with the car. I had inspected the car and test driven it before purchase, all was well. On the way home, I got the check engine light on! It did not seem serious so I pulled over and called John right away. I was worried something fishy was going on, but John offered to pay for whatever the car needed, within reason. I took it to Subaru who advised me it was a misfire likely caused by the spark plugs. All fixed and all paid for by John. A happy ending and a great car from a genuine, professional, honest dealer. Just one of those highly unlucky situations, in which he stood by and helped me get it sorted. You can't say fairer than that! Happy Customer.

My vehicle has been in to north east truck and van at Blaydon several times over a period of time and I can't thank the staff enough for the workmanship and the friendliest of welcomes. I would certainly recommend this dealership to anyone that wants a good reliable job doing on any vehicle as they are reliable and very competitive.

Went for some new leather trousers today to the Newcastle store with the wife. Staff couldn’t be more helpful. Knowledgeable and happy to chat about bikes and gear. Whilst I was trying on my new gear one of the lads cleaned our visors ready for ride home. Will definitely go back. Great bunch of lads who know what they are talking about with great banter!

Great selection of motorcycle clothing and gear great staff helpful and good discount.

Evans Cycles

Unit 2 Allison Court, Metrocentre, Gateshead NE11 9YS, UK – 0191 488 3264

I had the pleasure to work with Evansa Cycling support at Evans Prudential RideLondon. They are really very helpful employees. Advises you in the purchase of the appropriate equipment. Explains and advises what and how it works. I am very pleasantly surprised how hard they work for others

I’ve visited Evans at Gateshead many times over the last few years. I continue to visit the store depending on what it is I need. I’ve purchased bikes for myself and my girlfriend as well as accessories and clothing numerous times. All with no hassle orders have always arrived on time with no mixups. They price match with the big on line competitors which is very handy when you just need to grab a bottle of chain lube quickly for example. I’ve always received email notifications to tell me when my orders are in stock and they phone you up when you’ve ordered a bike to make arrangements for collection so the bike is definitely ready for when you arrive. I’d say the majority of the staff there are knowledgeable and quite passionate about bikes/cycling themselves. I think in particular Gavin M the mechanic in the workshop is particularly good! He has went out of his way to help me out with price matching on components and carrying out repairs for me. His quality of workmanship is spot on I’d trust him personally to carry out any job on my bike. The rest of the staff are largely friendly and helpful. I like that the guys there don’t pounce on you as soon as you walk in the door. You’re free to browse at your leisure without getting hassled from salesmen. On the downside though, there are times when it’s difficult to attract a staff members attention. You can on occasion be left standing waiting before you get served or even noticed. This is usually when the guys are busy though. On the whole once you have someone’s attention they look after you and do seem to have a genuine interest themselves. I like the workshop when I get to speak directly to Gavin M, I do find the other guys in the workshop are a bit hit and miss. Gavin gives you all of the correct info on what has been needed or what is needed. The other guys seem to blunder their way through a bit and sometimes charge incorrectly on labour. I’ve always had any issues with this in the past resolved though. I can see why some people give Evans a low rating, but having used the shop many times I can say I’ve experienced a lot more positive experiences than negative ones. If you know what you want to buy and ask to price match, it’s a very good shop. If you want a mechanic try and get Gavin M to carry out the work or at least discuss the work with him. I think 4 stars is a fair rating for Evans, not 100% outstanding, but on the whole very good.

Expensive, always the first to put up their prices and last to lower them.

Everytime I buy petrol from here I find it hard to stop it on 20.00 dead! even when I do by the time I pay for it it will have jumped up 1p. Frustrating!!! I want to see these machines checked by the trading standards. Would have gave them 2 stars but the staff are really great and it is also 24 hours. Oh 1 more thing their car wash has a great offer on Tuesdays 0001hrs through till Thursdays 2359hrs where their top car wash (Drive through) is half price.

TMC Garage Ltd

3, Gradys Yd, Ponteland Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne NE15 9EP, UK – 0191 267 8322

TMC is not my local garage but I used them for a number of years now. I want a garage where they will identify only the work that needs doing to the car, explain in easy to understand terms what is required, fix it promptly and charge a reasonable price. I trust them to find faults and point them out to me, ensuring my car is safe but also not to recommend any work that is unnecessary. Highly recommended. Today was an MOT test, car was in for just over 2 hours, staff were very pleasant and it only cost £30.

Great service from TMC, had my van in for an air con repair. Absolutely great communication from the initial phone call to the work itself. Tom went into great detail to discribe the potential repair work to a non car expert like myself. Can not recommend this garage more highly! Thank you, I will definitely be back!

Swift Motor Engineering

Hadrian House, Redburn Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne NE5 1NB, UK – 0191 214 0056

On holiday, 300 miles from my usual garage. Needed the brakes looking at in my A6. Looked for good reviews in this area and found Swifts. Rang James, who called back with a price. Booked in, arrived to good waiting room, polite and helpful staff. The technician showed me the problem. Work completed and car is now perfect again. Fantastic service at a good price. Very professional company, cannot recommend enough. Would use again if in this area.

A great team of technicians that do excellent work. They are good about explaining the issues they have found and potential solutions before doing any work. Quotes have always been spot on, no extra charges. I took my car to them in a pretty sorry state when i had first bought it and they were very patient and helpful while i was getting the issue sorted out. Since then i have been back a few times for other work as i was very impressed. They may charge a little more than other garages but the extra money you are paying is for quality of service, and even then they are still a lot cheaper than a main dealer.

Regent Autos

23 Riversdale Ct, Newcastle upon Tyne NE15 8SG, UK – 0191 447 2700

Excellent service with this garage. Staff friendly and very helpful.

Having used this garage for a number of years, I have nothing but praise for Mike, Andy and the team. With fair pricing, and an exceptional customer focus, I am always confident that I'll get a honest appraisal of any car problems I have. From major work, to routine service and MOT, the guys are great!

West Automotive LTD

Unit 4 Crispin Court, Newbiggin Lane, Westerhope, Newcastle upon Tyne NE5 1BF, UK – 0191 271 1605

I called the garage following a front windscreen wiper failure. I had a suspicion it was the fuse, but I asked if they could check. Immediate someone came out to my car and replaced the fuse. It was fixed within minutes of arrival. Excellent service. I went to find out the cost and they said a few coins or if I didn't have it then it would be free. I had £4 in change and that was enough for them. They made a joke saying it would cover the tea bags. Really good people. I will go back.

Fantastic service from a guy thats honest, and does a good job for a fair price, definately not a rip off merchant like some
