Welcome to the website of Higgins Mechanics t/a MTS, a fully equipped garage providing a comprehensive array of automotive services to clients in Liphook, and nearby areas such as Bordon, Farnham, Haslemere and Petersfield. Whether you’re looking to keep your vehicle in good shape with interim or annual car servicing, or you’re in search of a capable team of mechanics to deal with on-going issues via expert diagnostics and car repairs, we have you covered.
We’re also the area’s preferred destination for motorists in need of a new set of tyres. In fact, by visiting our garage you can enjoy all of the benefits associated with nationally-operated tyre fitters and main dealerships under the roof of a single independent garage, which means a more personal and often more affordable service.
Our veteran technicians operate a fully equipped workshop in Liphook with dedicated two-post and four-post lifts. This allows us to handle maintenance, repair and replacement work quickly – whether it’s new tyres or exhausts you’re in need of, or something more general like car servicing or MOT preparation. We undertake work on all makes and models of vehicle, and if required, we can source and fit tyres for non-standard vehicles including commercial models and heavy plant.
All the work our technicians undertake is guaranteed, with all manufacturer warranties on replacement parts honoured. What’s more, we offer no obligation, competitive quotes that keep the cost of quality automotive work down.
Car Servicing - Manufacturers recommend investing in interim car servicing every 6 months or 6,000 miles, and the more comprehensive annual car servicing every 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first. It’s an opportunity for motorists around Liphook, Bordon, Farnham, Haslemere and Petersfield to keep their vehicle in good health, reducing the chance of breakdown, accident, and the worsening of underlying issues that eventually cost a lot to repair. Other benefits of car servicing include improved fuel efficiency and lower emissions.
Diagnostics - Our Liphook garage is equipped with modern diagnostics equipment which allows us to quickly get to the bottom of on-going automotive issues. Trained technicians use ECU readers to retrieve engine-stored fault codes, and if necessary, combine this with hands-on traditional techniques to get a perfect picture of what’s going on with your vehicle. We can then accurately recommend the appropriate repairs, at all times looking to make it as affordable as possible to get safely back on the road.
Car Repairs - Modern vehicles have so many moving parts and complicated components that there’s an abundance of things that can go wrong. And when trouble does rear its head, it pays to have a local team of trained mechanics on hand to intervene, acting on the findings made during diagnostics. We use quality, OEM or equivalent parts to ensure the car repairs we complete will put you in good stead for the many, many more miles to come.
Tyres - There are a few reasons why you might need a new set of tyres. Perhaps you’ve been in an accident or run a flat that can’t be safely repaired. You might have been using your tyres for some time now, and find that their tread depth is in danger of dipping below the legal minimum of 1.6mm. Whatever the reason you need a swap, know that we make a range of tyres available to Liphook, Bordon, Farnham, Haslemere and Petersfield. Running from high performance, premium tyres from leading manufacturers, to options more suited to those on a budget, we’ll ensure you get the perfect fit.
Brakes - When it comes to issues with brakes, there’s really no messing around. They’re your first and most important line of defence, and a lack of responsiveness can prove fatal. So if you’ve noticed any signs of trouble, or that your brakes have begun acting differently than you’re used to, we urge you to pay our technicians a visit. We’ll run diagnostics, isolate the cause of the issue, and explain the best way to proceed. It might simply be a matter of on the spot car repairs, or it may be that more comprehensive work is required (e.g replacement of particular components).
MOT Preparation - The MOT is an important obligation we all have to keep on top of, but it can also be a source of anxiety and annoyance; what if we don’t pass first time, and we’re kept off the road for a span while repairs are undertaken? With our MOT preparation service, we look to reduce the stress involved for our Liphook, Bordon, Farnham, Haslemere and Petersfield clients. We’ll go over the MOT checklist point by point, ensuring that your vehicle is set-up for a speedy, first time pass.
