Sandy Lane Garage is located in Boughton, Chester on the banks of the River Dee. We offer exceptional levels of service using competent, fully trained technicians and by investing in the most up-to-date diagnostic equipment to pinpoint any faults in your car as quickly and as accurately as possible.
Sandy Lane Garage is owned and run by David and Jaqui Morris with the help of their fully experienced team. Established for over 35 years, we pride ourselves on our honest and approachable attitude. We appreciate our customers' trust in our business and do all that we can to ensure their experience with us is a good one.
Visiting a motor repair shop can be a daunting experience for some women car owners. At Sandy Lane garage we make sure that is never the case. Our charging is clear and transparent and you will always know how much a repair is going to cost you before the work starts. We will never patronise you and we will never try to sell you anything you don't need.
The MOT test is compulsory for all vehicles registered in the UK that are over three years old and is a
separate requirement to your vehicle tax and insurance.
We are approved by the Government's Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and all MOT tests are completed by qualified MOT technicians nominated by DVSA.
You can have an MOT up to one month before the expiry of your current MOT and still keep the original date. This will then allow some time before the current MOT expires to get any remedial work completed if necessary and to obtain a pass.
Whether it’s a major service or a simple oil change, we can cater for all your requirements.
Modern cars use computer control or an Electronic Control Unit (ECU) for their engine management
systems. Due to the increased level of sophistication of the fuel injected car, the days of DIY 'tuning'
are no longer with us. If your engine management warning light comes on or your car experiences running
issues, it's essential that you get your car checked out straight away.
We will always keep you informed while your car is with us and will never carry out work without checking with you first.
An air conditioning system cools the passenger cabin during warm weather and assists the demister in winter by removing excess moisture in damp conditions.
We have the very latest in 4-wheel alignment equipment as we realised that over the years, many tyres had to be changed due to uneven wear. If this had been corrected from the outset, our customers would have got much more usage out or their tyres and importantly, saved themselves money.
We can offer a selection of tyres in all makes and sizes at very competitive prices and also repair your existing tyres should you find yourself with a puncture.
We can replace the brakes on any make or model of vehicle.
Cambelts are an essential part of your vehicle and not replacing it as recommended by the manufacturer’s guidelines, can result in serious damage to your car’s engine.
Your exhaust is made up from a number of parts and it is likely that only one or two parts of the system will require replacement at any one time. We can replace individual parts or the full system depending on the level of requirement.
All of our batteries come with a full manufacturer’s warranty and can be fitted whilst you wait. We also have the latest battery testing and service equipment so we can test to check if there is a battery fault or if there is an alternative electrical problem with your vehicle.
We can repair or replace all your clutch requirements with high quality parts and expert fitting. If you think that your clutch is not working effectively please call in and speak to one of our experts who will be able to carry out a thorough diagnosis on your vehicle.
A car's suspension is designed to provide a smooth, comfortable ride even when you're on rough or bumpy road surfaces.
We can carry out a vehicle safety check on any make or model whilst you wait. This check will include brakes, tyres, suspension, lights, all levels, wipers, and seat belts. Please contact us today to arrange a convenient date and time for your check to be carried out.

We have been clients of Sandy Lane Garage for probably over 30 years with our two cars and have been very satisfied with the service we receive. Dave Morris and his men are very pleasant and careful in their work, the quality of their work is good, and they are always willing to give advice. A plus point in our opinion is that they will never undertake more work than is necessary, unless with our agreement, and we feel this sets them above many other and larger commercial garages. You will always get a cheery smile and helpful service from Jaqui in the office.

I’ve been a customer of Sandy Lane Garage for 25 years and that itself must say so much about the trust, loyalty and commitment that exists between Dave and his customers and vice versa. During that time I’ve seen a lot of changes, all for the better, and I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve recommended people to use him.
I’ve benefited over those years from a garage that has always strived to provide a fast, efficient and effective service at a reasonable cost and have always kept me informed if they’ve found a requirement for additional parts. And as an added bonus they manage my MOT and service reminders and my car always seems to have been cleaned and hoovered before it’s returned to me.
All of this coupled with their open and friendly approach takes the stress and hassle out of the pains of owning and maintaining a car!
We live in Wrexham and earlier this year, recently changed garages from our previous garage in Wrexham to Sandy Lane Garage. Since then, we've had a few jobs done, including MoT, routine servicing and a rather bigger job on our Golf. On every occasion, the work has been done on time, on price and without complication. Sandy Lane Garage is a very well-run operation, Dave and Jacqui are a delight to deal with and extremely professional. We would highly recommend this garage.

When it comes to servicing your car it isn’t always ‘biggest is best’. A friend recommended Sandy Lane Garage to me some years ago and I’ve never looked back. Whenever I take my car in I can be confident that with their integrity and skill I will receive service that’s second to none and excellent value for money, I would like to recommend them to you.
There is a bus stop immediately outside the door with regular services to and from the City centre.
