Hillside Garage operates a fully equipped modern workshop, complete with digital diagnostic software and up-to-date tools and equipment. Our senior mechanics are highly skilled and have been working for over 30 years in the car service and repair business. The service division of the business is located in Tallaght, convenient to Citywest, Templeogue, and Firhouse. Contact Lenny today to talk about your car and to book in for a service.
Service price depends on the make of your car and the level of servicing needed. However, you can always be assured of a highly competitive quote (with no hidden surprises), quality parts and oil, professional workmanship, personal attention, and helpful advice on how to keep your car in tip-top condition.
Every service or pre-NCT check includes a comprehensive all-over inspection and servicing of every operational aspect of your car.
After the car service, your mechanic will give you a full report and talk you through any issues and discuss further work that may be needed in the future. An integral part of our customer-focussed ethic is to always consult with you as to priorities that suit your budget and schedule. We don't "upsell". We also guarantee all service work carried out, in terms of labour and parts.
An NCT is a test to determine the road-worthiness of a car - it is required for all cars more than four years old.
The Department of Transport sets the NCT test, which is based around assessing all major car components to ensure that the car as a whole can be operated and driven safely.
If your car is over four years old, you are legally required to ensure that it passes an NCT test every two years. If your car is over ten years old, it must pass an NCT every year.
You should book your NCT test a few weeks in advance. Note you have to book using the web, you can't phone individual test centres. At the time of your booking, take your car and its registration book (and NCT test fee) along to the test centre with you. A pre-NCT check will ensure that your car will pass first time!

"Hillside are one of the few garages I know that are doing well in the recession. I think the reason why is that they do a good job, treat people honestly and don't pull any fast-ones. They have always given me really useful advice on how to keep my car on the road or where to go if I'm thinking of changing. "
