    •  Service was excellent, right from the initial phone call to someone in your Tyre department, to the lady (Tina?) who organised the visit, and the tyre fitter himself. All were polite, very patient with a rather frazzled customer, helpful, and provided the service that they said they were going to. Website feedback 
    •  We would like to thank you for the kindness & consideration you showed us at a time of distress, not the best of starts to our holiday but you put yourselve out and made the repairs to our vehicle after recovering us in thank you.  The Barlows 
    •  Brilliant Recovery of our horsebox and very quick repair within 24hrs at Manchetts Commercials! Highly recomended, thanks.  Ms S. Fish 
    •   I was recently taken into Manchetts by my breakdown people when my van broke down. Everyone was helpful and polite. The lady on the desk called me back everytime she said she would. I was asked for permission before work was done and the parts and the work costs were told to me. I was called when my van was finished and they fixed it overnite. I was also given a loan van to get me home. A+ for Manchetts Ms S Booth 
    •  I would just like to place on record my sincere appreciation of the service that we received from Lewis at Manchetts recovery last evening when, having stupidly having left my headlights on I was "stuck" in Cambridge Station Car Park.
      Manchetts operator Lewis was both efficient and polite and had me going again within 10 minutes as well as bringing a little humour to the situation.  He is a credit to the organisation and deserves a pat on the back!
