The people who run Hastings Pit Stop are honest and efficient and as a woman who knows very little I don't feel either intimidated or ripped off as I have at other garages.  



I called on the Tuesday as we were heading to Taupo on the Friday and I knew I had issues with the brakes. Checked in on Wednesday to see what was needed, they confirmed availability of parts and were able to fit me in the next day. Job done and a safe trip to Taupo... 



The service was well done and efficient, which included having to make a part for the vehicle, (a 1985 vintage). The staff are friendly and explain what needs to be done and how it will be carried out. 



The service provided by Kathy was great. She was able to drop me to work and when I picked my vehicle up they explained what they had done and what it would cost to do any thing additional. They provide very good customer service.



Excellent ,quick and efficient service . Good product knowledge and able to offer informed and helpful advice when requested. 



Polite helpful customer service - prepared to accommodate acute changes in the customer's day and carried out customer requests to assist the customer. Full Marks. Vehicle ready when they said it would be.
