Shropshire Indie Garages

Hi guys,

Now I'm one of the happy bunch with an Alfa I'd like to jot down where the best garages (Indies or not) are around the Shropshire area. Therefore can any of you Salopians let me know of good garages you have used?

SimplyAlfa's and WAD comes to mind, but if there are ones nearer to the Telford area that would be great.

P.S. I started to scan through the Indie garage's post, but after 12 pages my eyes started to go wonkey

Cheers,
Ish

Simply Alfa's are worth the travel, you won't find better closer.

I always go to WAD in Wolves and I'm in Telford, so would get my vote
Simply Alfas have a good rep on here, and I'd trust them with my car based on that also

No dont think so, wheres Finchfield Lane? Was probably at work at that time think I got back to work from lunch just before 1....

Edit: No wasnt me if you mean Finchfield in Wolves....

Mines easy to spot as I have a plate ending 4LFA, well until i get pulled by the local constabulary again!

I used WAD for about 18 months, but found that the traffic was so bad getting there in rush hours

Get on very well with Simply Alfas and would trust both WAD and Simply Alfas with any car I own.

So we are lucky

I know what you mean about the traffic, I try and get there for 8.15 when dropping off and leave early when fetching it back but it is a pain, always find the A449 is quickest route if you catch it right...
