outboard servicing in dorset

I felt this year I would get my outbord checked over, I rang a couple of "professionals" who were actually quite rude, one mobile servicer was reluctant to travel and preferred me to bring it to him?, after a brief rant about being really busy, and not wanting to touch outboards that customers had serviced, he then asked me to send him details of my engine, but as he failed to respond to my email I didn't bother taking it to him.

I rang JJ at Mechanical services ltd weymouth are yamaha marine engineers he was a breath of fresh air!
  • they are reliable
  • friendly
  • approachable
  • reasonably priced
  • flexible
I was introduced to Adam who worked on the engine while i watched, JJ made me a coffee, and both gave me some great advice!

I'll definately use them again!!!

Jimmy Marine in Golant and Outboard Services in Lostwithiel are fantastic. JM is mobile and the Lostie guys work on short notice. Both smile.
