I must say initially I had hesitations after taking my Range Rover Sport to Westlake Garage. They collected my car from house which was very handy. They took their time to explain me in layman’s terms what the issues where with my car and I really appreciated this in the midst of them attending to other customers as well. Well done to Paul and his team! Great job indeed and I highly recommend them.

I found Westlake Garages last year based on internet reviews for independent Landrover dealerships that were Landrover approved. Took my Landy to them for an annual service + MOT, they were roughly half the price of Hunters. Took it back today for another service + MOT; they phoned me to let me know the turbo is on the way out. Warranty issue, and the car will be there over the weekend, but Westlake are dropping off anything we need from the car this evening before they close for the Easter Weekend. This is a professional garage that delivers quality service at a really good price. I will continue to use them so long as I live in Richmond area.
