  • Very good service. Can handle tyre repairs almost immediately Good friendly staff
  • Great personalised service that used to be the norm. Happily the tradition continues with Kevin and his team of merry men. It is a pleasure doing business with them.
  • I needed to urgently replace my damaged tyre. I called Goodfellows first thing in the morning. They ordered in the tyre I wanted and fitted it by 2pm the same day. Outstanding service and it was lower cost than other places too.
