Thank you to Mark for responding to my urgent request on a Sunday and having the Trunion bushes for my Vitesse ready for me to collect on the Monday morning. That got me out of a spot and it was great to have a quick tour of the cars in the workshop.
Mark and Rachel are fantastic people. They invited me to the workshop right away and even had breakfast waiting for me. Their knowledge seems infinite as well their willingness to help you out getting the car of your dreams. As you converse with Mark, you can feel the passion oozing out of his words. To me, the ultimate people to go to if you are seriously thinking about classic cars.
Mark and Rachel are very friendly people and run a business that is most welcome these days. Personal service, huge knowledge and experience and an invitation to bring my car in to carry out supervised work for preventative winter maintenance. Mark's bodywork restoration is fantastic and I am very happy to recommend Southern Triumph Services.
Very knowledgeable and friendly people who have been providing me and my many Triumphs with parts, expertise and tea for nearly thirty years. The quality of the work that is produced from their unassuming little workshop is second to none, and I would not hesitate in recommending them.
