"I've been to many places to have various bits done to my car/cars in the past but Concorde leave the rest standing. The service, the help, the price and the speed in which they get things one are absolutely top drawer. On top of this, the Centre (Peterborough) had a small section for kids to play with toys whilst you are waiting, drinks/snacks machines, a clean waiting area and very clean and spacious toilets. Honest and trustworthy, great customer services and friendly. Simply put, I will never go anywhere else ever again. "
