    Hi, can any of you Aberdeen Locals recommend a suitable 'trustworthy' garage in the area to MOT my Swift 6 berth (7m long). I could call round the garages but I'm really looking for a recommendation.
    Thanks

    My God your asking a lot, "Trustworthy". Thats like asking a politician to be honest, but I wish you luck.

    Well I'm at the other end of the country but I would try and be present when the dreaded event takes place and tell them before they start not to over rev the engine on the exhaust test, I had one young man floor the peddle and blow the seals on the turbo charger £850.00!!! I kid you not.

    Great! This kind of story is exactly why I'm asking for a recommendation, especially for a garage with a bit of MH experience. If it's gonna happen, it'll happen to me! Ha ha.
    Cheers

    Gregg,
    I live in Fraserburgh just 40 miles north of you; I have used Ruxtons and found them to be great, reliable, and inexpensive. Hope this helps.

    Your local council MOT centre is the answer.. they did the MOTs on my 8.5ton, 36ft RV.

    By law these test centres (though not taxi or Crown stations) must be open to the general public, and as they generally only carry out tests and don't do repairs, there's no incentive for mechanics to find faults that don't exist.

    see map and locations....

    Thanks for the help guys! It'll be Ruxtons in Fraserburgh or the Local Council - Assuming they haven't shut the Council MOT station because of cutbacks! :Rofl1:

    Norman, thanks for this recommendation, I really have been stung with some garages in the past but as I'm a newbie MH owner with her first MOT looming I really appreciate the help. I may very well travel up to 'the Brough' for MOT day.
    Thanks again
