What's special about us?

Here's why you should give us a try when you next need repairs and servicing

We care

We always take the time to properly understand your problem and then make sure we identify its root cause so that it doesn't reoccur.

We listen

We write down exactly what you tell us you are experiencing. If it’s a ‘Weird one” then we will take to ride with you to make sure we get to the source of the problem.

We test drive

We test drive your vehicle first to determine if we can see, hear or feel what you described. Then we test drive again afterwards to ensure that we got it right.

We give a free vehicle audit

We conduct a “FREE” vehicle maintenance audits. A safety inspection to make sure everything is OK with your vehicle.

We don't want any of our clients to leave without knowing what condition their car is in.

We explain our estimates

We will not perform any repairs without your approval. We will not begin the repairs until we have talked to you about the problem, the cost and the time it will take to repair.

We are female-friendly

We are a garage that doesn't take advantage of a customer without 'car smarts' . . . man or woman!     read more →

We double check everything

After all services or repairs, we will run our diagnostic check and then test drive to make doubly sure that we have corrected the problem.

We communicate!

We keep you informed about the status of your vehicle, so there are no surprises.

When your vehicle is totally finished and ready for you to pick up, we will contact you and make arrangements for you to pick it up.


I am a fully qualified mechanic. I learned my trade and honed my skills and experience by working for a family run garage in my home town of Hexham. It has always been my life long ambition to open my own garage. Then, in 2012, that opportunity came along and Dart's Motor Services was born.

Maintaining outstanding quality standards is my highest priority. With over 20 year's experience in vehicle repair, you can expect reliable repairs and thorough servicing.

My reputation really matters to me. I realise the value of repeat business and want my customers always to come back to me whenever they need help and assistance.

I have highly competitive pricing and undertake all types of car servicing and repairs.

This is a female-friendly garage too!     Learn more →
