So that is roughly £400... prices in the south are more like £550+
I would but the cost of travel negates any savings in the cost of labour.Get it done by the best ( IMO) at home or your place of work, and cheaper.
The service may well be ok, but the web site looks a bit naff.
I only try to go to specialists for the big jobs. I got burned during the last MOT where the guy on the phone told me the car failed due to one of the shock absorbers being noisy, one of the calipers having seized plus some other minor stuff. I paid £800 (!!) to get everything done and then the MOT certificate had only the absorber as an advisory, nothing about the caliper, and just a couple of nuts and bolts as core items i.e a £100 job was inflated to £800 instead. I am happy to pay for real things but not very happy otherwise. Not to mention that in this case I was planning on changing to Bilsteins anyway however I still ended up paying £200 for the absorber, not knowing any better. Live and learn.I seem to recall my last one was 400-450ish inc the VAT.
I agree with the above, for me above the cost the important thing is to know that the job has been done right and is carried out by people familiar with the cars 'foibles' be it one of the MG specialists about the country or one of the mobiles
Not to say that a non specialist couldn't do the job but for me I get more peace of mind that way.
Are these guys any good?
When I ask "how much will it cost to change the absorbers" and I am told £300 then I expect to pay £300 to have them changed. I don't care if you can't remove a bolt and it takes 1 hour to drill through it but I am not happy when I have to pick up the car and the quoted final cost is suddenly £500 instead.
A quote should be the price you pay. If the garage hits snags, tough. Snags should be built into the quoted price. An estimate however is only ever that.

Your location says London? Travel costs would be minimalI would but the cost of travel negates any savings in the cost of labour.
