MOT @ Tomsett Sittingbourne

Has anybody used Tomsett garage Stockbury nr Sittingbourne kent to have there van MOT'ed.
I see on there web site they can do my van as they have a picture of a Burstner 747 on the ramp.

I would normally go to the ministry at Hersden near Canterbury but they are stopping it there for non HGV.

quite an old one, but I think I'd seem something more recently about them - maybe about the LEZ conversions?

As far as I know, the only motorhoming Oxford United supporter in Bognor.

Tomsetts

Hi Inkey,


Have used Tomsetts a couple of times now and have found them very good. The owner ( Mike ?) is motorhomer so does tend to understand our concerns etc.

We've been using Thomsett for MOT and servicing since we started MHing 4 years ago. They are also giving you a sheet when you have the MOT done which shows whether or not you will be compliant with LEZ from Jan 2012.

They apparently have a fix if you need it but very expensive and needs testing every year. Fortunately we will still be LEZ compliant, not that it matters because we don't take the van into London.

I can't help with your specific query, but I see you normally go to Canterbury, so have a nearby suggestion. For the last 9 years I have been using Regent Coaches at Whitstable (actually on an industrial estate between Swalecliffe and Herne Bay). They seem to have plenty of room and I have found them both helpful and reliable - they do all my servicing too.

I was very please with them when they carried out the MOT & service on our van last march, and will definitely be taking it back to them this year.

Coming from Maidstone, take Church Hill off the 249, which is the first turning after what used to be the Three Squirrels (dodgy pub). Follow the road up the hill, round the bend, and they are in the farm complex on your left.

I tried them but my 8 meter van will not go on there ramps and they would have to take it else where to do the MOT
