Book in for car repairs at Hearts MOT Ltd by calling 01322 446561. We’re the affordable alternative to dealership garages in the Erith area, and a popular choice for services with motorists in South London and Northern Kent. We have a skilled team of trained technicians with experience in all manufacturer makes and models, and the ability to combine traditional mechanical skills with today’s most innovative engine management equipment.
For customers who need car repairs after a roadside breakdown or an accident, we can offer a breakdown recovery service that extends into Bexley, Bexleyheath and a similarly wide radius of our premises on Sandcliff Road in Erith.
Hearts MOT Ltd uses genuine OEM replacement parts to provide your car or LCV with a repair of superior quality. We guarantee our workmanship and all components used by our personnel have their own manufacturer warranty. Typically, independent garages guarantee car repairs for 12 months or for 12,000 miles, whichever falls the sooner of the two.
Brakes and Clutches
The braking and transmission systems are the two busiest on your car and this causes individual parts to wear down or fail quickly. Drivers usually notice one or a combination of unusual characteristics when brakes or clutches need replacing, such as burning smells, screeching or squealing noises, a change in the feel of the pedals, difficulty when slowing or stopping and difficulty when changing gear.
Brake and clutch replacements are two of the most common car repairs undertaken at our workshop for motorists in Erith and the surrounding Bexley and Bexleyheath areas.
Tyres and Exhausts
Fast-fit centres run by nationally operated companies charge comparatively high prices to replace worn tyres and exhausts. Most independent garages qualify for the same discounts on replacement parts as the big-name service providers but don’t have to increase their mark-up to meet sales targets set by a head office. This subsequently lowers the cost of car repairs and makes them more affordable for motorists.
We deliver fast turnarounds on tyre and exhaust replacements by holding a stock range of fast-moving products on our shelves, but we can source non-stock items for immediate delivery from trusted suppliers in and around the Erith area.
The timing belt is a vital part of your car’s engine because it synchronises rotation to open and close the valves at the correct times. If the timing belt breaks and damages the valves, the cost of car repairs can run into thousands of pounds. It is critical for motorists in Bexley, Bexleyheath and the surrounding areas to book in for timing belt replacement at the service interval recommended by the manufacturer.
Today’s more innovative engines run for much longer without a timing belt change and, whereas older cars needed a new belt after 60,000 miles, newer models won’t need a replacement until they reach the 100,000-mile mark.
Car Air Conditioning
Some garages in the Erith area lack the equipment needed to recharge your car’s air conditioning system but Hearts MOT Ltd can help motorists to keep their cool even when the weather is at its highest temperature. Over time, refrigerant runs low and stops the air conditioning system from working properly. The system can also become a hotspot for harmful allergens and pathogens, which can cause sickness and even asthma.
We include air conditioning servicing in our comprehensive range of car repairs and can manage anything from a fast refrigerant top up to the replacement of damaged pipework.
Our services also include engine diagnostics and you can find out more about engine management on the appropriate page.
