" I recently brought a car from the tender center. I needed to find a mechanic that would appreciate the vehicle I purchased. It did not take me long to find M1 Safety Certificates as the reviews speak for themselves. Well Done Mark & Lisa Your service is exceptional. I turned up unexpectedly at their premises and both Lisa and Mark made me feel welcomed and invited. I can see they are always happy, friendly and helpful and they will always go that extra mile to help in any way they can. Mark is open, honest and reliable. He explains what needs to be done to my car in simple terms so I understand and is always happy to answer any questions I might have had. Best mechanics I have ever come across. Mark has also explained what I might require for my next service and what I should need attending to before anything else. I will not hesitate to inform everyone I come across about using their business to fix and service their vehicles. Regards "
