Our managing director included in the top young business and professional men in Wales 2016

We are pleased to see that our managing director Rishi Patel has been included in the Wales Online 35 top young business and professional men in Wales in 2016. Rishi finished his A-Levels when he was 18 and has never looked back servicing vehicles of all brand types especially German manufactured vehicles from Mercedes, Skoda, BMW, Volkswagen, AUDI and more.

Here’s Rishi pictured below at A1 Diagnostics situated on Sloper Road opposite the Cardiff City Stadium.

Here are photos of our garage workshop where we carry out vehicle service work of all types from MOT’s, engine rebuilds, brake servicing, air conditioning servicing, clutch repairs, gearbox reconditioning and a lot more.

It’s another great achievement for us as we were also recently recognised by BOSCH Service giving us a certificate (shown below) for achieving excellence from our garage workshop in a recent audit.

Here at A1 Diagnostics we are completely driven by our customers and also committed in providing the very best vehicle service technology for our mechanics to use in the garage giving them the best facilities to service our customers.

Here are two blog posts for you to read that highlight our commitment to invest in the best technology.

Having the best vehicle service technology allows us to offer more reliable vehicle servicing to our customer’s. We pride ourselves on being able to pin point exact vehicle faults and fixing them on the first attempt rather than having customers coming back and for to the garage with more problems having to spend more money.

Because we offer reliable vehicle servicing at the right prices we have been able to gain some great 5 star reviews from our customers. These are outlined below.

“Repaired my turbo, I’m very happy with the service and team”

Our next 5-star review is a bit more in-depth but worth the read. Gery Adley was quoted thousands of pounds to repair his BMW vehicle which was misfiring but we saved him thousands of pounds and avoided him high costs from other garages and main dealers.

“Wonderful service and helpful people, I had been to 3 garages to repair my BMW petrol which had a misfire, everyone told me I would need to spend £2000-3000 for the repair. Being honest I told A1 Diagnostics that I had been quoted this kind of money from 3 other garages. Clive told me to book in for a diagnostic which cost me £65.00 + VAT and what a diagnostic I had.

The car was repaired by A1 Diagnostics and has been working the best it has ever worked every day since I have had it for over 2 months. Best of all the total bill was £140.00inc VAT for my diagnostic!!!!!!! what a saving, I would safely say the car garage is not a rip off, as knowing I was prepared to pay up to £3000.00 they didn’t con me in anyway shape or form, thank you for the work and honesty.

Thank you to the team…..will highly recommend them and be back!!”

Not only do we have written reviews and testimonials but you can also view a video testimonial we received from Dave Bennett complimenting us on the work we carried out on his Jaguar XKR.

We all work as a team at our vehicle service garage. We have mechanics with years of experience in the vehicle service trade and combined with their knowledge and the advanced vehicle technology we provide we ensure our customers get the most reliable vehicle servicing in Cardiff that does not cost the earth.
