Let us know where you've had good service for your T wagen. Try to keep it to first hand experience, where you've handed over your own cash and been happy with the results. This can include products you've added to your van that you're chuffed with

There's always people asking for recommendations but the threads usually disappear over time, so I'll make this a sticky so it becomes a resource for everybody

I use the Gorbals MOT Station for repair work and have always been happy with the work and price. Had a EGR valve, engine mounts and a rear spring replaced. Top service every time

I'd like to recommend Auto Doctor in Bonnybridge. I hate letting other people work on my vehicles but I trust these guys. Brian has also helped me out a few times when I've had problems with the ABS light on the dashboard of my taxi

I use Deutschtek in Glasgow, great service great price. Does anybody know a good body shop who do fabricating? I'll need some welding work done in the near future (long story) cant do it myself as I'd need a ramp for starters.

I had my T5 converted at Blue Juice in Cumbernauld back in late 2011. We looked around for what seemed like ages until we met Jon. It was an ex-joiners van so it was pretty much a blank canvas. He did a full conversion (barring a pop-top roof).

Can't say enough about him, a top guy who was always coming up with ideas and delivering when he said he would. We've kept in touch, and he's always been handy for advice and tips. He also did a Pendle remap on the van, which was one of the best things we ever did.

Cheers
Steve

Calendonian Campers in Clydebank made me a mattress for a bench bed that I built for the T5. They made a really good job of it and turned it around pretty quickly. Good service all round and not a bad price for the quality of the work.

I have used Mills Garage and Coachworks in Duns a fair bit.

They are a motorhome conversion company that tend to specialise in VW Conversions, but are also a normal garage and MOT station (which is the bit that I have used)
To date, they have done the Clutch on the Suzuki Swift; Timing Belt and Water Pump on the T4; DMF & Clutch on the T5; plus various MOTs.
Old Skool family run garage with time-served mechanics who when you ask how much a job will cost will say depends how long it takes, and when you ask how long, you will be told it takes however long it takes! But once you get past that bit, you'll get a good service at a very competitive price with a reasonable hourly rate
