Thank you for the excellent service I received last week from the Service Department at Seafield, Edinburgh. The Senior Service Advisor kept me informed throughout. Also, the use of the courtesy car was a great help to me. Please can you pass on my gratitude to the team at Seafield - job well done.

I would like to pass on my thanks to the Servicing Department who dealt with my service and MOT today at Hamilton Road branch. The whole process meant there was no impact on my working day and I was kept well informed of the progress. The standard of service was excellent and your staff are a credit to you.

Patricia, Glasgow
