Garage reccommendation

Hi I have just joined. I have had auto Modus for one year (diesel). Very satisfied with it. Am now wanting to find a garage for service and aircon repair in North Yorks/Teesside. Not impressed by the usual big outfit with a smiley woman in reception. Would like to speak to a mechanic. any ideas gratefully received.
Currently in mrsimnock's garage:
renault modus grand dynamique

Re: Garage reccommendation

Ask friends, family etc for recommendations.
Word of mouth does work, both ways

General rule of thumb, Dealers, priciest and though they are the "experts" on their make, often seem to forget that.
Large national Franchises, quick fit places.
Often good for run of the mill work, often poor with anything that means a little thought.
Small independent's, usually cheapest and often most knowledgeable but may not have specific type knowledge or diagnostics.

If service and aircon is all that is needed, get some quotes, shop around.
If nothing else, pick the one you feel most comfortable with.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
