Flexible booking arrangements
Arrival and Parking
Although our site is busy, we have plenty of parking available for customers. Adjacent roads can become very congested with local school traffic, especially between 8:15am and 9:00am.
Bus stops located outside Bell & Colvill: 478 - Guildford, Merrow, West Clandon, West Horsley, East Horsley, Effingham, Bookham, Leatherhead and Woodbridge; and the 479 - Epsom, Ashtead, St Andrews School, Leatherhead, Fetcham, Bookham, Howard of Effingham School, West Clandon, Merrow and Guildford Bus Station
With reduced maintenance times on modern vehicles, many services and repairs can be carried out on a while-you-wait basis. Please always try to book as far in advance as possible; in busy periods we can be fully booked as much as three weeks ahead. We will send you reminder cards to jog your memory! (But do tell us if you'd prefer us not to.)
We have a fleet of Loan Cars available for bigger jobs and for when it is impossible for the customer to wait whilst the work takes place. We ask that you request this at the time of booking, as availability can be limited during our busy times. There are 3 options to insure your vehicle: one is to insure it under your own insurance; or you can insure under our insurance; or, for complete peace of mind you can insure under our insurance and pay an excess waiver charge to avoid any charges should you be involved in an accident. It is also the driver’s responsibly to fuel the car. Please ask our Service Department for more information.
Should you wish to wait while we work on your vehicle, there are several local attractions for you to visit, such as:
- National Trust Park – Hatchlands Park
- Clandon Golf Club & Park
- Effingham Golf Club
- Squires Garden Centre with Gift Shop and Tea Room
- Various nature walks and scenic areas
- King William public house with lunch menu – 0.4 miles
- Duke of Wellington public house with lunch menu – 1.1 miles
