These terms and conditions apply to any Services or Products that we, Matt's Motors Limited, supply to you and they set out what our responsibilities are to you.


1. Meanings

When reading these terms and conditions, the word: “Products” means all products and parts (such as tyres, brake discs etc.) sold by us to you. This includes any parts or products which are supplied as part of any Service that we carry out.  “Service” means servicing or repairs that we carry out and includes inspections, Product fitting and servicing.

2. Exclusions

We will be legally responsible to you if our negligence causes death or personal injury.

We will not be responsible if we cannot carry out our duties because of circumstances beyond our reasonable control.  We will not be responsible for any damage caused in carrying out any Service if this is caused by:

•    the vehicle’s condition
•    it having been incorrectly maintained or modified
•    any previous servicing or repairs which have not been properly carried out
•    any parts that have been wrongly fitted by someone other than us
•    some other reason not in our control

We will not be responsible for any loss of business profits or income, lost business or missed opportunities, loss of use or inconvenience, or other financial or indirect loss. Please take out suitable insurance cover to protect these interests.

3. Recommendations

As part of any Service we will carry out the inspections described in the Service Schedule. We will then make a recommendation to you based on the inspection we have undertaken. We will not start any work on the vehicle until you have agreed to our inspection report and any estimate we give.

We will not be responsible for any loss or damage caused by anything which we did not find on our inspection unless it should have been found by the actual inspection we conducted. We shall not be responsible for conducting any other inspections.

4. Estimates

We will always try to give accurate estimates for the prices of Products or Services.  The prices that we give for Products will be current at the time that we give our estimate. However, we may adjust any price if the cost to us of the Product increases between the time that we give our estimate and the time we obtain the Products. We will always tell you if the price has increased and you shall not be obliged to buy any Product which has a higher price than estimated.

If during any Service we discover that the work we have to do will exceed the estimate, we will ask for your agreement to continue the Service on the basis of a revised estimate. You do not have to agree any revised estimate and, if you choose to cancel the work, we will return your vehicle as nearly as possible in the same condition as when the Service began.

We will not be responsible for any loss or damage that is caused as a consequence of your cancelling work or instructing us not to carry out work that we have recommended.

5. Deposits

A deposit may be required for certain orders, if this is the case you will be advised accordingly.

Deposits paid on specially ordered items are non-refundable.

6. Cancelling Work

If we stop any Service at your request then we may charge a reasonable amount for any work actually carried out. We will also charge you for the price of any Products supplied or fitted.

7. Time

We will try to carry out any Service or deliver and fit Products in the time we have agreed to do so or, if no time is agreed, within a reasonable period. However, if we are late or cannot carry out the Service or the delivery or fitting of Products, we will have no liability or responsibility to you for any loss or any inconvenience you may suffer as a result.

If the carrying out of any Service or the delivery or fitting of Products has been arranged to be carried out by one of our mobile fitters and our mobile fitter does not turn up to the location and between the times we have agreed with you, we shall pay you compensation limited to £10. We shall have no other liability or responsibility to you for any loss or inconvenience that you may suffer as a result of our mobile fitter not turning up.

8. Paying Us

You must pay us for any Service carried out and Products supplied before you remove your vehicle from our premises*. If any Service is carried out or Products supplied away from our premises then you must pay us before we release your vehicle to you.


  • You must pay VAT at the relevant rate on all the charges we make*.

  • You must make all payments on time. If you do not, we may charge simple interest at 5% a year above our bank’s current base rate from time to time. We work this out on a daily basis.

  • We accept payment by cash, bank transfer and most major payment cards (exceptions apply - please check before booking).

*Subject to eligibility, we offer the VAT exemption programme. You are able to take your vehicle away on completion of the work, and payment (the cheque) will need to be returned to us within 5 working days. Late payment may void this offer and be subject to the addition of VAT at the current rate, at the manager’s discretion. 

9. Collecting Property

If a vehicle is not collected before the time that we close on the day that we advise you the Service is complete we may store it or, if we choose, have it stored by somebody else. Any cost of storage will be added to our charge for the Service. If the vehicle is stored by us our storage charges will be those current at the time of storage. We will not be required to store any vehicle left with us in secure premises and, if we think that a vehicle is not going to be collected then, if we choose, we may park the vehicle on the public highway. We shall have no liability or responsibility to you for any losses that you suffer as a consequence of any vehicle being left or parked on our premises or stored by us as long as we have ensured that the vehicle is locked and, if left on the public highway, safely parked.

If you leave any other item with us but fail to collect it after three months, we may dispose of that item as we see fit and we shall not be accountable to you for its value. We shall not be responsible for loss of or damage to any items or other goods left on our premises.

10. Ownership of Products

Any Products we sell to you will not belong to you until you have paid for them and any Service in full. If payment is not made on time we may remove from the vehicle any Products we have fitted.

11. Replaced Items

All items replaced by us during any Service become our property. We may deal with such items as we see fit.

12. Health & Safety
