Based in Croydon, we’re a small and friendly garage that’s been assisting local motorists since first setting up shop back in 1981. Fiercely independent, we provide an alternative to national fast-fits and chain garages, handling everything from car repairs and car servicing, to MOTs and all aspects of engine management. We place a heavy focus on professionalism and transparency at all times, to ensure clients’ peace of mind.
We take great pride in our local reputation around Croydon, and always look to meet the high bar we’ve set for ourselves, whether carrying out clutch or brake replacement, car air conditioning servicing or 4X4 wheel alignment. PD Motors also supplies and replaces tyres, so if you’ve suffered a puncture or need a set replacing due to low tread depth – we’ve got you covered.
PD Motors is a Which? Trusted Trader, and employs a small team of skilled mechanics who are constantly undergoing training to ensure they are up to speed with the latest aspects of car servicing, car repairs and MOTs, as vehicles continue to evolve and become increasingly technologically sophisticated.
The size of our team also ensures that our business owner can deal directly with clients, who receive a personalised service from first contact till rolling away, happy with the service we’ve provided when all is said and done; not many garages can make this claim.
This is the case whether you’re in for car repairs, car servicing, MOTs or engine management services.
If there’s one word that is at the core of everything we do, it’s honesty. Only work that needs doing will be recommended. We don’t want to up-sell or create work that isn’t there. This fairness and transparency is the secret to our longevity, and why we’ve stuck around since 1981 while competing garages have come and gone.
We provide the following services at our Croydon location:
Engine Management & Diagnostics
Brakes & Clutches
Steering & Suspension
Wheels & Tyres
Car Air Conditioning
4X4 Wheel Alignment
Car Body Repairs & Resprays
Below, we’ve provided brief overviews of some of our core services, which you can learn more about on their dedicated pages.
Car Servicing – Full annual car servicing is a vital maintenance service that manufacturers recommended motorists invest in every 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first. Croydon customers who get heavy use out of their vehicles should consider also investing in interim car servicing on top of this, every 6 months or 6,000 miles. Car servicing involves a thorough inspection of components by a trained mechanic, ensuring your vehicle runs smoothly, reliably and efficiently.
Car Repairs – Suffering an automotive problem? Visit the experts at PD Motors in Croydon. Our garage is fully equipped with the latest diagnostics equipment, and we’ll quickly get to the bottom of the issue you’re experiencing, explaining it in clear and understandable terms for transparency’s sake. All car repairs are carried out using OEM parts or equivalent, which come with up to 5 year supplier guarantees. We also carry out car body repairs, as a fully equipped body shop.
MOTs – As an approved DVSA testing facility, we are able to meet all Class IV MOT requirements on behalf of Croydon motorists. We look to take the stress out of MOTs by providing a fast and accurate service at a time convenient for you. Should you fail, we’ll recommend the best course of action, and should you have repairs or adjustments carried out at PD Motors, provide a free re-test.
Engine Management – Modern vehicles are typically manufactured with ECUs, or engine control units. These store fault codes to allow for accurate diagnostics following a drop off in performance or similar issue. As engine management specialists, we assist Croydon motorists by identifying the issues behind poor performance and faults, ensuring the right car repairs can be carried out, getting you back safely on the road ASAP.
