Testing, servicing, reconditioning, repairing (and new), alternators and starter motors
I have been repairing and servicing alternators and starter motors for 20 years. It's my own business and I have always done the work myself. I have always been in the motor trade, and you could say I have finished my apprenticeship.
What I offer: The chance to have your faulty alternator or starter motor repaired at a big saving over buying a new one. My repairing your faulty device is also often quicker than buying new, either in-garage or online. You also get the chance to have your original unit back; very often a better quality unit than the cheap copy from China you would replace it with.
In todays market your alternator can cost a great deal of money. Alternators often fail at a low mileage because just one minor component is at fault; the rest of the alternator could go on for 100,000 miles or more, so why replace it?
I know that the pricing and standard of work is important when repairing your alternator or starter motor, which is why I only use parts from reputable companies of the highest standard. By the time I'm finished, your alternator will be much better than a second hand alternative, and often better than it was new!
All repairs come with a 6 month guarantee (unless vehicle is used for off-roading, or a boat where corrosion is likely).
Price guide (all total, no VAT to pay):
- Small engine starter motor: £45
- Large/diesel engine starter motor: £65 - sometimes more, sometimes less
- Alternator repair: £45-65 (the newest alternators may require more expensive parts)
- More precise quotes will be given on contact
Repair time is one day, possibly half a day. If parts are not in stock an extra day may be necessary for them to be delivered. If this is the case I will contact you.
If you require a more specific quote, please give me a call, likewise if on inspection the job isn't as first quoted, I'll call you first before undertaking any work.
Imported vehicles, old tractors, boats and plant machinery all have the possibility of a repair too, subject to inspection. Bring your starter motor/alternator along, and I'll let you know what the job entails and give you a price.
All alternators/starter motors must be delivered and collected from the repair shop as we offer no pickup or delivery service.
If I can't repair then a new or reconditioned unit may be the best option, prices available on request.
The business, with ample off-road parking, is approximately 0.8 miles down Brook Lane, in Botley, located in the Mistral Farm workshop (painted green).
