Hands down the best garage in Colchester. Always reliable, great customer service, would highly recommend Shaikly Motor Company to everyone.
Brilliant brilliant brilliant. I messaged them on a bank holiday, they responded straight away. They got me in the next day to get my MOT done. Also sorted my husbands flat tyre out ASAP. Very impressed. Great staff. Great service. Will definitely recommend them and will be back!
I called in after a warning light appeared on my dashboard. I was away from home and in the area on business. The staff were very friendly and professional and the mechanic managed to resolve the problem for me there and then. I am very grateful for the excellent service I received and would definitely recommend them to anyone local.
Being a young girl who knows very little about cars I was apprehensive about choosing which garages I could trust, this one however is the most trustworthy garage I’ve come across so far!
Having used them for an MOT for my car previously, when I needed some repairs doing I thought I’d try this garage again and they did not disappoint! I was given a no obligation quote free of charge before any work was done, along with free and honest advice from a mechanic. Whilst they can be slightly more expensive than other garages, the customer service here is impeccable. I cannot fault how well informed I felt throughout the whole process, with calls throughout keeping me up to date with the work.
Despite a few very minor unforeseen setbacks (which I was informed about in a very timely manner, and which were not the fault of this garage) the work cost me exactly what I was originally quoted.
Very happy and reassured customer! Will be using this garage again!
Wow! 5 stars is completely deserved. I had the house move from hell on Friday, everything that could have gone wrong, did go wrong... apart from the incredible service provided by Shaikly. Every staff member I spoke with was so lovely and understanding. The vans themselves are wicked but customer service was what really stood out for me. I will recommended to anyone I know in need of a van! Thank you all so much for everything, your kindness meant the world to me on a day where I needed it most! X
Absolutely superb service again today. I needed some work doing and received and agreed to a quote but upon picking up the car the final price was just under £30 less because one part hadn't needed replacing after all. I'm really pleased once again with the service and professionalism that I have received from Shaikly Motor Company.
I always receive an excellent and professional service!! Would highly recommend. I also hired a van recently too, excellent rates and smooth and straight forward service.
I'd just like to thank all at Shaikly Motor Co for their continued and consistent assistance with my vehicles. Mark has worked on both of my Audis and has always resolved any issues with the uttermost care and attention. Thanks to Sian too for always being so polite and getting me booked quickly. Thank you all.
Thank You again to Shaiklys Motor Company for going above and beyond to help us out. Our vehicle broke down with lots to do and an important load on board, our vehicle is now safely in their hands and we now have one of their hire vans to complete our deliveries. Shaikly's saved the day!! THANK YOU xx
5 stars * Wow, what you guys did to my BMW E61 530d is incredible. It is like a brand new car. Friendly and knowledgeable service, highly recommend using Shakily.
5 star* Thankyou to an excellent team down at Shaikly Motors. Top service from start to finish. Will be back when i need some more work doing.
Thank you! I'd just like to thank you. You have thoroughly restored my faith in car fixing specialists, and your diagram drawing skills are superb! Rating: 5*
Exemplary Service! Just wanted to say thanks to your staff for the exemplary service this evening. I had a troublesome racing kit car in for an MOT and the guys could not have been better (even lending me a fuel can when it ran out of gas!). This is the sort of personal touch and customer service which all businesses aspire to. Many thanks. Rating: 5*
You'd be pushed to find a better garage! I was despairing because my DPF had gone on my car, and I was looking at over a grand for a new one, which in time would only block again. Shaikly saved me time and money, and even valeted my car afterwards! I would definitely be back, even for a service despite being 40 miles down the road in North London. I have pointed my fellow BMW owners in Shaikly's direction
Great Service! Had my car serviced here, great customer service, clear pricing, prompt service. Got a free valet and delivered back to my work so I didn't have to arrange lifts! Definitely be using them again.
