Liked, Local & We Pickup

Covering Yate Bristol but we cover all surrounding areas.

We founded GR Auto Services in 1990. As you can imagine we have built up a fair amount of experience over the years, but there are two things that stand out in that time - use only quality parts and build a team of experienced, trustworthy mechanics.

If you get those two things right, then the final ingredient to a successful garage is customer service. As a family-run business we are able to exel at this and we have a thick book of testimonials in our reception to demonstrate it.

That is why I, Glyn Rushent am proud to put my name to the company. So if you need your car serviced, repaired or MOTed you can rest assured you are in safe hands with GR Autos.

Brilliant reliable garage
Customer Service 
In my opinion GR Auto services Ltd is the best garage in Bristol. I would not use any other garage. Service is honest and reliable. Staff are welcoming and friendly and the mechanics are highly skilled and on inspection they find additional works to be necessary. They phone me to discuss and authorise before proceeding. By using this garage I have complete peace of mind my car is road worthy at all times.

First job
Customer Service 
I went to GR Autos for an MOT today and found their service to be exceptional: considered, thorough and always aware of costs so if you're looking for an auto servicing company you can trust I would highly recommend them. Thanks to the team for fitting in changing of my tyres that was not expected at all but very much needed!
Going the extra mile
Customer Service 
We have been using GR Autos for a number of years now and find it to be an exceptional garage. In particular, the way Glyn and his team work with you to find the best solution for your needs. Our most recent trip was a case in point. Needing to deal with a damaged wing mirror, rather than just replacing the whole lot, a job which runs into hundreds of pounds, GR Autos took the time to carefully investigate the damaged parts. They ascertained that two components could be replaced to leave me a fully functional mirror .

Professional & convenient
Customer Service 
The garage picked up and dropped off my car from home which was very convenient. They replaced the brake pads and water fluid sensor warming light which was defective on my Jaguar at a competitive cost.

Customer Service 
I have never experience better service. If you think you know what to expect from a garage these guys will exceed every expectation.

  • G R Autos are professional and their customer service is great.

    I have used this garage for over 30 years and have always been pleased with the quality of the staff and work carried out.

    First class service, had parts ready just in case, but only used what was needed. Kept me informed throughout and the bill at the end was very reasonable.

    Been with the garage for several years now. Can be trusted; good service and reliable. Provide free collect and return service to senior citizens which I find very helpful.

    Excellent service from experienced mechanics.

    Excellent service from everyone. Saved myself a lot of money.

Mike Keig - Consultant For The leading Cost Management Company "Auditel"

I used GR Auto Services earlier this month to undertake an MOT on my car.

I found the staff very friendly ,helpful and exceedingly informative, even allowing me to have a discussion in the workshop around the car - Something I found most garages avoid.

There is a deep routed long term intermittent fault with the car which the Ford dealer cannot identify. Glyn and his team undertook a scan of the vehicle, provided me with a print out of the results and highlighted where the problem was ,all with out further charge over the MOT.

I was delighted by the service I received and would not hesitate to recommend GR Auto Services to others

  • Mike Keig   - Auditel - 22/08/2014

Really impressed with level of service, appreciated phone call to let me know where en route to collect my car. Glyn was friendly and efficient, would definitely recommend to others. A+. Well done.

  • 25/06/2014

Car was dropped off without being booked on as it was leaking petrol. The garage repaired it same day at minimal cost. Excellent quick service.

  • 24/06/2014

A very good, honest service, with the personal touch.

The senior engineer Mr Chris Heyes is clearly worth his weight in gold, in the care and quality of his engineering to my BMW 530 SE Tourer.

Not only have you gone out of your way to ensure the safety and reliability of my own car and that of my wife you keep my business going looking after the 19 strong transit van fleet. 

Your proactive approach has not only saved money but more importantly saved time and ensured that we remain on the road, visiting our site after business hours to suit us.

Your team is a credit to you  and i very much appreciate your efforts.I would have no hesitation to recommend your services to private car owners or indeed fleet operators.

Mr L Ward  ( Frampton Cotterell  Bristol ) 

I booked my car into GR Auto Services for repairs having received poor customer service from the garage that carried out the M.O.T.

On arrival to GR Auto's Reception, I was welcomed and advised my was booked in and a courtesy vehicle was available to me.

The courtesy vehicle was clean and fuelled ready for my usage - both of which along with the welcome, is something I've never experienced before hand whilst leaving my car with a garage.

I highly rate the service, repairs and overall experience of my dealings with GR Auto's and will certainly use their services again and would recommend them to my friends.

Mark Evans (Bath & Bristol Science Park - Emersons Green Bristol )

I would like to thank GR Auto's and Glyn in particular for the excellence service provided recently, on my M.O.T.  

Glyn firstly contacted me to arrange a convenient day and time to pick my car up, then he turned up on time and took my car away for the M.O.T. I requested that if possible my car could be returned by 2 pm as I needed it. As you would expect from who takes pride in his workmanship the car was returned on time with a new M.O.T.

There were a few minor issues that were rectified and the service was outstanding. I feel the pick-up and drop off service  GR Auto's  offer is second to none and a real differentiator and something we should all shout about. I have no hesitation in recommending GR Auto's to anyone, in fact  some of my staff at kbase have used them already.

Roly's Home and Garden Services - ( Downend Bristol ) 

I'd like to say a big thank you for the recent works done on my Vauxhall Movano Van .

I have now used your services twice and on both occasions you have put your self out to help me. On the first occasion my van was in need of an M.O.T but was unable to get the van to you, you and your team put yourself out by collecting it and returning it after it had passed it's M.O.T.

On the second occasion the van needed a service and again I was limited to how long you could have it for, again you helped out by getting a quick turn around whilst I waited for it in  your reception. you were also quick on finding and sorting out a problem I had with the handbrake, a seized brake caliper which was also supplied and promptly fitted and saved me a lot of money compared to main dealer prices .

I would have no hesitation in recommending you to my friends and customers in the future

Thanks again Glyn and your team.

What a wonderful service, collected my car and returned it the same day, the staff were very helpful on reception when booking in , will recommend to all my family and friends. 

Richard Martin ( South Gloucestershire  Football Development )

I wanted to thank you for the recent work GR Auto Services carried out on my car

My car needed corrections in order to pass the m.o.t , this was done quickly getting my car back on the road before the m.o.t ran out.

I was amazed that you were able to collect and drop my car back to me making my day run smoothly with out transport.

you were very thorough , quick and helpful in suggesting the best way to resolve the problem.

I would recommend them to anyone as I was extremely impressed with the experience from start to finish.
