    MOT Station – Benfleet, Essex Area.

    MOT Station – Benfleet, Essex Area.


    Its that time again and I need to get my Vette MOT’d, so can anyone recommend a good garage that understands older vehicles and all of their idiosyncrasies, and uniqueness, in or around the Benfleet area.

    Last year was not a problem as it was the first time back on the road for about 10 years, so after having some work done at Claremont Corvette they arranged the MOT, but it’s bit of a long trip just for an MOT, especially in this hot weather negotiation the Dartford Crossing with a BBC.

    Would appreciate some advice


    Thanks

    Gary

    Gary,

    I use Charfleets Tyre Service 01268 699691.

    Done all my cars for the past 5+ years, cant fault them and they love something that isnt a Mondeo!

    Andy is the guy I usually deal with but anybody is good.

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for the tip, and I cant agree with you more, will definitely use these guys again, and I would recommend them to anyone with a Yank or a Rod who’s MOT is due, chatted a lot to the guy this morning, and he is really into the Classic Car scene.

    Had the MOT on my Vette 8.15 this morning and she passed, I knew she should but I hate the waiting to find out, just in case. So straight after went to the Post Office to get my free tax disc, and will treat myself to a nice little cruise maybe up to Southend later today.

    Form the list of MOT stations I was looking at, the one that could fit me in at a time I could make was Charfleet Tyres MOT Centre - 01268 699 600.

    I was really pleasantly surprised, as they are very much into the classic car scene, they even did a leaflet drop at the Dick Turpin last week to get some interesting business, as the guy that did my test would love to see more Vettes, other Yanks and Rods.

    If your looking for a test centre in Essex I would highly recommend this one.

    Rgds

    Gary.
