I was extremely satisfied with the service provided by Mototech... my car was collected from and delivered back to my place of work thus causing no disruption to my working day. I was also very pleased with the price and found it extremely reasonable and far less than i had anticipated. All in all the service provided was extremely professional and of a very high standard. I would not hesitate in recommending Mototech to friends and family

I would definitely recommend Mototech to all my friends and family. I have recently had a cambelt change, suspension repair and replaced thermostat for an excellent price but its the quality service included that is the best.I would now say that I do not want any other mechanic to touch my Alfa as Mototech clearly have the expertise in this field. My car now feels and drives brand new again and i would like to thank Mototech (Mark)for this.If you would like a quality Alfa specialist then Mototech has my thumbs up!

Mark carried out a 72 000 mile service on my Alfa and I'm extremely happy with the work carried out and the lack of pain caused to my bank balance too.Cam belt, water pump, new brake pads and a few other bits and pieces have all seen my car purring with satisfaction. I highly recommend anyone looking for an Alfa specialist to do themselves and their car a favour and get in touch with Mark

Mark recently did a full service and cambelt on my alfa gt, I am very pleased with the quality of work carried out and I found the cost great value for money, as he explained to me he has low overheads so this allows him to offer a great value for money service, he clearly loves alfas and his attention to detail is A1, I would recommend anyone with an alfa give mark a call he will look after your car and save you money.

Ronald Pickering

Mark has just done a major service on my mondeo est. It now runs like a dream first class service. Picked car up and delivered back no problem in recommending to friends and family.

Stewart Lancaster

Mototech provides the best value of service as well as very affordable rate. You can see they care about the level of work they do. You just dont get that with so many garages.A little gem of a place.

Alan Jones

Mark did some work for me on my Alfa 156 at the weekend, he goes the extra mile for you and takes his time to explain things to you, also giving you good sound advice. I will definitely be returning for anything my 156 needs.

Sean Mcllrow

I had a full service completed on my 147 as well as a timing belt change. I was very happy with the quality of work and care taken in explaining what had been done. Mark provided an excellent service and I will return to him for any future work on the car.

Neil Nuckley

After my nightmare of having my engine seize, i contacted Mark and he collected the car, replaced the old unit and the car is now running like a dream. Very reasonable price too, exceptional service.

Nick Minnery

I would not hesitate in recommending Mark's services to anyone. He arranged collection of my sister's immobile car from Chester, carried out the work while constantly updating on the progress. The car is now running better than ever! Mark's technical knowledge was evident right from the start, HIGHLY recommended!!

Mark Fox

I've been taking my alfa to Mark for sometime now and am always completely satisfied with the work carried out. 5*

Ian

After the cam belt failed on my 147 Mjet on the M6, I was faced with having to find a decent garage and estimates over £1200. I found Mark (MotoTech) on the alfaowner forum and was pleased to see he was very local. I emailed him for a quote and shortly after I got a reply that was exceptionally good (£400 cheaper than my regular garage). Mark recovered my vehicle (I live about 10 miles away) on a Wednesday and my car was ready to pick up 3 days later. Fantastic service! I have driven about 300 miles over the last 10 days and am happy to report she runs like new and was a little cheaper than his original quote as my engine was not as badly damaged as first thought.I would highly recommend MotoTech, and would definitely use them again in the future. If only I'd found them 7 years ago!Cheers Mark

Andrew Burke

Superb service and value for money, first time I have dealt with Mark but what a superb guy, any issues I have in the future he will be the guy I contact.

Adam Russell

Mark is as good as they come. Arrived promptly to collect my car, and turned it around quickly, all for exceptional value (he even gave me the left over oil!) He knows his stuff, will be the first person I contact about my car in future, and the first I recommend.

Peter Robinson

5 star service, great people skills, vast experience within his profession and customer focused are the reasons why I would recommend Mark. Plus, no one can beat his prices and still provide the latter.

Les Rees

Just had my alfa 147 cam belt, water pump change and a service done ,found all the work carried out to a high standard ,will be returning again when work is required, would recommend any one with a alfa to come and have your jobs done here, mark explains all works done or required well, thanks mark regards les 147.

Brendan Southern

Second trip to Mark of MotoTech to repair my 147's failing gear stick and a service. Turned around in a day. Another top notch job both fast and friendly. Highly recommended!

Nick Peterson

Excellent service and communication, Mark had my car sorted within 24 hours, after I had several expensive and time consuming consultations with other garages who were all wrong. Will definitely be going back again,Thanks, Nick

Anthony McArdle

I was recommended to Mototech 5 years or so ago, after a bruising experience with another Alfa 'specialist'. I won't go anywhere else now. They've treated my cars like an enthusiast would, have imparted knowledge along the way (very useful as an Alfa owner) and it's always a friendly, well priced service.

Chris Morris

Overall friendly and professional standards with service rates that will not break the bank, especially as labour charges are excluded from VAT.

I genuinely wish that I found Mototech much sooner and saved £200 on the replacement of a cam belt for an Alfa 156 Twin Spark.

Brian Davies

Very difficult to find an Alfa specialist locally especially someone who knows what he is doing.
Mark from Mototech fits the bill and offers excellent service along with good value for money.. Mark also happens to be a nice bloke all in all highly recommended.

Trish Carter

Been using Mototech for a few years now. Always been very happy with any work that's been done. Mark is an honest and trustworthy person and I highly recommend him. It's good to be able to leave my car in safe hands and know I won't be ripped off, like some garages do when a woman shows up

Tim Bell

 Had issues with my climate control system that Mark analysed and fixed quickly and efficiently and at a reasonable price. Will defnitely go back to Mark with future work.

 Chris Schofield

 "Mark carried out 2 jobs on my Alfa Romeo GT Blackline late last week.

1. Order and replace the rear passenger cluster light.

2. Order and replace the driver's side door handle.

He originally quoted me £270 all inclusive for both jobs (best price I was quoted when comparing to Alfa garages and other specialists) in North West.

When I dropped off my car (outside normal working hours), it was reassuring to see that he had the same car model as me. That night, I received an email informing me that he managed to get the parts cheaper therefore total price for both jobs was now £200 (result £70 cheaper). Very honest of him to tell me this!!!

When I picked up the car on the Saturday, I was very happy with the work that he had carried out and could not fault anything.

I 100% recommend Mark and will definitely return to him for any further work that needs doing on my Alfa in the future! "

Just had drive shafts sorted by Mark .Great job thanks again Mark
 
Peter simpson
Just had service on my gt. Great customer service you wouldn't get at the main dealers , will be back again thanks mark
 
Ken 
Can't recommend Mark's service highly enough. He replaced front brake pads and changed the cam belt/water pump and took trouble to deal with several extra items within the cost of the overall service. Will certainly use Mark's services from now on.
 
Andy 
Mark changed the oil and serviced my '60' plate 159 last week at 31k and it is running like a dream, so smooth again. To cap it off the advice on an "Italian Tune-up" (motorway run at 70 in 4th) to clear the DPF worked a treat, full fuel consumption is back to normal (I had been losing 100 miles on each tank!). As for the main dealers, the two I contacted both said it didn't need a service until 42k despite the last one being 15 months and 15k ago and the service indicator saying it need a service in 4k. Thank Mark - absolutely excellent service, you have my recommendation.
 
Peter 
Upper wishbones on my gt got fed up of telling people what the squeaks were Great advice and service from mark. Thanks again mark

Chris 
hi, i'm looking at getting my first alfa (GT Blackline 1.9JTD- 53000miles) the only thing putting me off is the reputation of reliabilty. is this undeserved and would u have to assume these people havnt looked after them in the way suggested on this website? any additional advice on being a newbie to Alfa would be greatly appreciated, Thanks

David Worrall
Heard about MotoTech from the seller of our latest Alfa and am delighted. Have used MotoTech twice over the past week (2 different cars) and couldn't be more pleased. First rate service. Makes Alfa/Fiat ownership even more of a pleasure (and cheaper!).
 
Terry
Mark did a full service and some other jobs on my mito yesterday, i am very happy with the level of service and especialy the cost will be going back again next time i need work doing, would highly recommend mark to anyone.

Sean meechan 
Had service done and very pleased with the service recieved, highly recommend. Thanks

Peter Callaway
Had my Timing Belt and water pump replaced today on my 159 2.4 JTDM today by Mark and was extremely pleased with the excellent service I received. Everything was done that I had asked for and in a very efficient way. I would thoroughly recommend to any new customers!
 
Adam Russell
Recent cambelt change on my 147 and a service for a Mito. Both carried out quickly and at exceptional value. Mark is friendly, honest, knowledgeable and great guy. I can't recommend him enough.

Jenny
I took my mito into mark for its first service yesterday, i would just like to take this opportunity to say how happy i was with the quality and cost of the work carried out and i will definately be calling mark again next time i need any work doing on her. five*****

Tony
Mark recently did a full service and cambelt on my 2.4 159, i was very impressed by marks professional manner and attention to detail not to meantion the great price he did the job for, am more than happy to recommend mototech and i will certainly be returning in the future.

Peter
I've recently bought an alfa 156 JTD from Mark and I can't fault her, Mark made sure that she was in tip top condition before he accepted a single penny from me ...5 star service, great people skills, vast experience within his profession and customer focused are the reasons why I would recommend Mark.

Plus, no one can beat his prices and still provide the latter.

Mark 
dropped my deisel brera into mark last week with a few problems to be sorted and a service. Can't speak highly enough of the service I received from mark, really professional and quick with no fuss whatsoever and a really great price. he even sorted two new tyres for me at a great price while she was in. I'd have no hesitation in recommending mark who's a real enthusiast and knows his stuff, and I'll be back in touch without doubt. Cheers!

Scott
Very rarely will I take the time to commend good service but credit where its due, Mark deserves it. Previously had the car serviced here and was very pleased at service and cost, even picked up and delivered the car to work. Today my heater fan was faulty and he took his own out his 156 and put it in mine, beat that mr anydealer! He done another couple of things at fantastic cost. All my service needs will be done with Mototech, thank you!

Michael
Took my brera into mototech recently for a full service timing belt and a few niggly faults mark carried out all the work to a high standard and at a very reasonable cost so am very happy and will be visiting mark again in the future for sure.

Chris
Full service and gasket cover fitted and have to say once again top job mark thanks.

Dave156 
Mototech (Mark) comes with the highest of recomendations from me. So far over the years I have had, numerous services, cambelt replaced, 3.2 GTAair intake pipe installed. replacment wing mirror, Replacment gearbox which Mark sourced at a fantastic price, front suspension arms replaced and various other odd jobs. The service and knowledge provided by Mototech is second to none and is rarely found these days.

To sum it up. If you own a Alfa Romeo you NEED to bring it here for any work that needs doing as you will not find better anywhere else in Merseyside!!!

Thanks again Mark :)

Chris M
Mark thanks again for the antifreeze mix

Just had a full service and a few niggles sorted out on my 159 by mark, was very impressed with the level of service and also the price, id go as far as to say i recieved better service than i have from my main dealer, mark will be the only one working on my car from now on. Five ***** thanks again andy.
 
 
Mark 
Just had a new cam belt fitted and a few other bits done on my Alfa 156 by Mark, very happy with his work and am just booking in a 147 for a service.
 
Tony
My 147 selespeed recently became abit temperamental in the transmission department, mark soon got to the bottom of the problem and sorted it out for me, it is now back to normal and performing faultlessly again. if you have a problem with your car give mark a call. Top bloke.

Ronnie 
Just had my 147 Gta serviced again by mark, as always i am very pleased with the work carried out, there where a few rattles and creaks that had developed these have now be eliminated and she drives like new again, would not hesitate to recommend mark to anyone. five *****

Ste
Just had my 147 serviced and mot'd plus brake discs/pads changed by mark all for a very good price, fixed a couple of little niggles i had for no extra cost also gave me some very helpful advice.Thought it was goin to be difficult to find a good and reliable alfa mechanic but mark is both,will defo be using again(hopefully not to soon) and have already recomended him.
 
Jim
Top bloke thanks to mark my car is running better than it ever has, he took the time out to have a chat with me, very friendly bloke who clearly knows his cars.
will definately be using mark again and will not hesitate to recommend him to any friends and family.
 
 
Andy
I have just recently had my timing belt and full service on my Alfa 147 completed by Mark! The difference is so noticeable the car runs superb once again. All genuine Alfa parts, great service, great price. All in all be happy to recommend to anyone and will certainly be using again.
 
Phil 
The hood on my spider would not retract due to burst hydraulic pipe. Part no longer made by Alfa but Mark was able to get it repaired in a few hours and the hood is now ready for summer. Let's hope it's a good one.

Mark also replaced rear bearing and suspension arm getting rid of an awful noise that had developed.

Excellent service and price. Will definitely be using Marks services again and can thoroughly recommend him.

Rick Hough 
MotoTech have just changed the cam belt, variator and water pump on my 2001 156 and what a fantastic difference.

The car is back to full power and once again it is a joy to drive. Mark really, really, really knows his Alfas and diagnosed a slightly iffy MAF which he cleaned free of charge, removing a noticeable flat spot.

He also diagnosed and advised me on a slight manifold blow and fixed the under tray which was in a shocking state, again without asking for more money.

I cannot recommend MotoTech highly enough and Mark's price was substantially less than the dealer despite the fact that the parts are 100% genuine Alfa.

On top of the great price, great service and free diagnostics and fixes Mark even ran me down to the Library so I could do some work and research and took less time than he expected. Total star service.

Terry 
Mark recently did a full service and cambelt on my alfa gt, I am very pleased with the quality of work carried out and I found the cost great value for money, as he explained to me he has low overheads so this allows him to offer a great value for money service, he clearly loves alfas and his attention to detail is A1, I would recommend anyone with an alfa give mark a call he will look after your car and save you money.
 
 
Marc 
I took my alfa 147 in for its service and cambelt recently, and i am well happy with the service i recieved from mark, i would recommend them to anyone without hesitation, its hard to find honest reliable people in the motortrade these days so i will definately be returning, my alfas driving better than ever and will be going back to mark every year.

Rachel 
Just had car collected, serviced and delivered back to me - very pleased with everything - I wouldnt hesitate to recommmend Mark to anyone. I will definitely be using him again in the future.

Martin 
I recently took my GTV to mototech to get a load of niggly little faults fixed, mark got to the bottom of every single one of them and the car is now back in working order. Big thanks to you for that, and will be seeing you very soon to get her serviced.
 
John
Mark recently fixed a running concern i had with my 147 and also did a full service and cambelt., and i am very pleased with price and very professional service i recieved, i wouldnt hessitate to recommend mark to anyone who has an alfa, after a chat with mark its clear that he loves the alfa brand even more than i do. keep up the great work.

Mike B 
Mark replaced the cambelt , tensioners, variator, water pump & thermostat on my Alfa 156 and I'm very happy with his work & pricing, no more diesel sounding engine.

Steve 
Mototech did some work on my car recently and i was very happy with the level of service and cost of the repairs, i will definately be using him again and will recommend him.

Mark 
I have had occassion to use Moto Tech services on both cars and motorbikes and have been impressed by the level of knowledge, efficiency and flexibility.
They continue to provide me with the best levels of service and repair. The Merc is getting on a bit now and needs a bit of TLC now and again. Whenever he has been to Moto Tech for a holiday, he always comes back with a smile on his radiator and a purr under his bonnet (made me wonder if there might be a girlie car round there :wink:. If there is nobody is telling).
Thanks for eveything. :D
 
John 
Marks very professional and knowlegeble, i was 100% happy with the job he did on my car, he will be maintaining my car from now on and i will be recommending him to my friends and family. Thanks again mark
 
 
Pete 
Happy happy happy :D
Recently had a problem with my bike and my car failed it's MOT. MotoTech have just carried out work on both car and bike and I am more than happy with the friendly, efficient service. However, I then got the bill :huh: and I felt like it was ME ripping THEM off!
To say I was pleasantly surprised is a big understatement! :D
Can't recommend them highly enough!
Oh and the advice offered on other aspects of the car and bike was absolutely "on the money" - thank you so much. I will be bringing my cars and bikes to MotoTech for a long time to come. I'll also be recommending them to friends and family. Cheers :D

Claire
Moto-Tech recently carried out some work for me on my Rover car and I was extremely impressed with the efficient and professional way the work was undertaken. I was also pleasantly surprised at the cost of the repairs and am happy to say my car is now running like a dream. I would not hesitate to recommend him to both friends and family. Many thanks :D
