About Us

‘We're here to help get the most out of your vehicles by identifying issues, saving money on fuel and future repair bills.’

Established in 2015 we are IMI Certified and the UK’s only Award Winning Which? Trusted Trader, being awarded the Which? Certificate of Distinction annually since its inception in 2019 and winning the prestigious Which? Trusted Trader of the Month award in 2018 and again in August 2022.

Our HQ is in Bourne, but we provide a MOBILE service and come to you anywhere across the East Midlands counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire and Rutland, plus we also cover Cambridgeshire.

We get called to perform diagnostics and cleans for many reasons – regular preventative maintenance, running issues, poor fuel economy, MOT failures, limp mode issues, DPF issues, smoke issues, vehicle purchase inspection, Engine Management lights, etc.

Why choose us?

We tell it like it is – what it will and especially what it won’t clean.

We do things properly – slow and gently does it with the right method and right equipment. We don’t try to upsell additives or sell you a DPF Clean if it isn’t needed.

We focus on symptoms and their identification and rectification rather than just sell cleans, hence the extensive use of diagnostics. If you have a drop in fuel economy for example the diagnostics may well identify an injector issue, boost leak or a thermostat problem.

We won’t set unrealistic expectations – you can only ever restore/recover what you have lost through carbon build-up.  There is no guaranteed extra or improvement as with a remap – this is all about restoration and recovery.

We walk you through the diagnostics and you see it as we do – we act as your interpreter and as we don’t sell parts or labour we offer independent analysis.

We look after your vehicle – if it isn’t safe to proceed or make sense to proceed then we won’t.
