Your Local Car Servicing Specialists in St Albans & Harpenden

Welcome to the website of Gold Crest Motors. Based out of a fully equipped garage in St. Albans, we proudly serve as the area’s independent car servicing and car repair specialists. We offer a complete automotive service range, competitively priced and targeting motorists in our home town, nearby Harpenden and the surrounding Hertfordshire area.

Our qualified mechanics pride themselves on three things: professionalism, reliability and experience. So it doesn’t matter whether we’re delivering state-of-the-art engine diagnostics, ensuring you’re road safe and legal via MOT testing, or fixing on-going issues with the appropriate car repairs, you’ll get high quality mechanical work that consistently rivals the prices charged by dealerships and fast-fit centres in the St Albans and Harpenden areas.

Just as our car repairs make use of OEM or equivalent parts, ensuring that you’ll get a long life and impressive performance out of any new components you require, it is also important to note that our car servicing is performed to the same schedules and specifications used by main dealers and manufacturers. This ensures our customers receive a high-end service at exactly the right price, improving fuel efficiency, handling and road safety – while reducing annual costs on car repairs and protecting the investment you’ve made in your vehicle.

Taking the Hassle & Expense Out of MOTs

Gold Crest Motors operate as approved RMI members and, because we provide full DVSA training for our team, we can undertake your next MOT using the latest testing equipment at our St Albans workshop, just a short drive from nearby Harpenden. MOT testing is available for all Class IV vehicles, and we are able to provide inspection services for diesel vehicles as well as those powered by petrol.

You will require MOT testing if your vehicle is over three years old. If it’s approaching time for you to get tested, consider booking a month in advance – this gets it out of the way nice and early, and the time in-between the test, and your current certification running out won’t be eaten into.

Solving Automotive Issues With Engine Diagnostics & Car Repairs

We have covered the Hertfordshire area since 1978 and throughout this time, our business has continually led the way by delivering progressive car repair services using the latest trade and industry technology. This makes Gold Crest Motors a genuine local expert for engine diagnostics in St Albans and the surrounding local area, including Harpeden.

By plugging into the port of your ECU, we can use engine diagnostics to identify engine sub-system and electrical issues without the need for painstaking troubleshooting or out-dated mechanical repair work that might not resolve the issue immediately. Our commitment to innovation sees us earn many repeat customers and word-of-mouth recommendations.

We also supply and fit new tyres for customers in St Albans and Hertfordshire. A large stock range of new and budget tyres are available, including many top-of-the-range products from major brand manufacturers. Whether you are looking to use Gold Crest Motors for car servicing, MOT testing, new tyres or any of our professional services, we promise to deliver a service experience at the fairest, most transparent prices in St Albans and beyond.
