I bought lots of spares from these guys, they are quite a friendly lot, but unfortunately my experience when it came to repairs has been negative. I found them overpriced and they overcharged me substantially on the last bus they did major repairs on, leading to a falling out. Quality of work is hit and miss... Berg Motors had to redo some of the work on my Devon at additional cost. It's a pity as I had a good working relationship with them, but even so they tried to screw me. So buy spares from them by all means, but if you need mechanical work done check your invoice carefully, and check the parts used...

Thanks for that Derek. To me its all or nothing. If somebody screwed me over on one deal I wouldn't go back, even if their prices on parts are good. The trust would be gone.
