What we are bringing to the plate in Swansea and Bridgend

We have recently announced we are opening up garages in Bridgend and Swansea. But what does this mean? Here we want to let motorists know what we will be bringing with us from high tech technology, mechanics with years of experience and importantly affordable vehicle services.


We are one of the most high tech garages (pictured below) in Cardiff soon to be the most high tech in the Swansea and Bridgend area, why? Because we invest heavily in the latest vehicle technology, this ensures we get to the heart of the problems with your vehicle.


Take a look at the technology we have at our Cardiff branch outlined below.

We invested £25,000 in a new state of the art electrical bay containing all of the latest technical vehicle diagnosis technology. Photos of our brand new electrical bay are shown below.

The advantage of having our own electrical bay is we can diagnose electrical faults with your vehicle more quickly and reliably. We can also diagnose electrical engine faults quickly and reliably. Here are photos of our specialist mechanics diagnosing an engine electrical fault from our electrical bay.

In our electrical bay we also have invested £5,000 in a brand new ADAS system. The ADAS system stands for Advanced Driver Assist Systems, these are things like camera sensors on the car that help you park, or systems that help you stay in cruise control when out on the motor way. When ADAS systems fail overtime we can help put them right for you, we can reconfigure ADAS systems and have all the technology to do so unlike a lot of main dealers.

The ADAS technology we have in our electrical bay is shown below.

We know just how important it is to invest in technology, we want to get to the very heart of a problem with your vehicle. That is why last year we invested £25,000 in a new autologic computer which can diagnose problems with your vehicle in an instant. The autologic computer we have invested in is shown below.

We can plug the autologic computer system into your car or vehicle and it will diagnose the problem and give us a complete description of the fault. The Autologic computer is specialist and state of the art, the system is updated with the latest information and the latest error codes. Having the latest updated information on vehicle faults only helps us service your car more reliably, this makes us one of the most reliable service garages in South Wales.

Lastly we look at a new MOT test bay and service ramp. This investment cost us £50,000. What is special about this new ramp and MOT test lane is it is specialist for German manufactured cars. We can service other continental cars on this ramp however it is especially geared up to service Audi, BMW, Skoda, Volkswagen, Seat and Mercedes vehicles. Because we have this ramp means once again we can service your cars and vehicles more reliably. The ramp is pictured below.

The other specialist thing about this ramp is we can also reconfigure the tracking and wheel alignment on your vehicle. When the tracking and wheel alignment go out of sync over time we can put this right on your vehicle. Here are photos of us servicing a Volkswagen vehicle realigning the wheels and tracking on the car.

We care about the quality of our service, we care about our customers needs and always go above and beyond putting our customers at the heart of our operation. This is why we invest in £100,000 worth of high tech vehicle equipment as it ensures we deliver the very best for our customers.

This policy has helped us gain many 5 star reviews and testimonials, these are outlined below.


“Been going to A1 for about 6 years now – can’t recommend them highly enough – staff are always friendly and helpful – brilliant job!”


“Just wanted to say thank you for such great service this week – MOT and annual service undertaken, really quick and professional, with a car clean and air freshener supplied too! Excellent. I’ll be recommending A1 to all my friends and family. Thanks again.”


“Took my Vauxhall insignia in yesterday lol.

Very good service by all of the team. They solved the problem straight away. It was not even the same problem that I was told by another garage which would have cost me cost me £££.

Thanks to all the team.”


“I had my air conditioning on my Yaris serviced today, with a full diagnostic check and re-gas, excellent service, good honest help and advice throughout, at last my A.C. doesn’t smell like mouldy bread. Thank you so much A1 Diagnostics some honest people, who don’t rip you off because you are female. Definitely worth the drive from Bridgend.”

A1 Diagnostics work in a culture where all of our mechanics work together as a team helping one another diagnose problems with vehicles and fixing them. This culture which we have developed over our 10 year existence works well as it helps us service cars and vehicle quickly. We are known for delivering a speedy service as we know just how important it is for vehicle owners to have their vehicles because of every day life things like work and family.

Photos of our team working together as a team on a range of jobs from engine rebuilds, gearbox reconditioning and general vehicle servicing work are shown below.


So watch this space! Watch out for announcements in the future on our social media platforms letting you know about our roll out of branches in the Bridgend and Swansea areas as if you live in these areas you will want to know how we are saving motorists money offering a first class service.
