I first met the Team at The Toy Shop 3 years ago when they advised on the sale of my E-Type Jaguar. Earlier this year I imported a 1989 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera from the UK, which had been "back-dated" to resemble the classic pre-1973 911s. The bonnet had been elongated, chrome installed around the headlights and windows, the whale tail removed, Durant side mirrors installed and the rear shaped in the 70s style. All the performance and features of a late 1980s 911 3.2 with the classic slim line look of the early 70s.
The Toy Shop advised me about how to buy the car and took care of all the shipping and importing requirements. When it arrived, while the body, chassis and engine were superb, there were some rust issues in the undercarriage from the salt on the English roads. Toy Shop took control.
They sandblasted, re-welded, rust proofed and painted the undercarriage, replaced the oil pipes, oil cooler and the fuel tank and overhauled the brakes. It wasn't exactly where I wanted to be spending money, but the job that they did was not only absolutely impeccable but very reasonably priced. They kept me informed every step of the way and always welcomed a visit at any time to see how work was progressing. When the work was done they went out of their way to call in a favour to get the LTSA compliance testing completed asap. When the car hit the road about a month ago, it was absolutely superb.
The Team at the Toy Shop genuinely love the cars they work on as much as the owners do, their work is second to none, very reasonably priced and they are very pragmatic about what needs to be done as opposed to what could be done. I am looking forward to a lot of great motoring with The Toy Shop.
I have been using the Toyshop to service my Porsches for years. What I love about Trevor & the crew is that they make you feel really welcome, especially as a woman. They have a beautiful, clean workshop & toy lounge, where you can relax & wait for your car whilst having a chat to one of their knowledgeable team. I love that they talk to you in plain English & explain everything to you before they commit to doing anything. They also tell you what it's going to cost, so there are no surprises! Best of all, as a car lover myself, they know their cars or 'toys' & you can chat to them about everything to do with European or British Cars. They love your Porsche or Land Rover or VW etc. as much as you do :)
Thoroughly recommend the Toy Shop for servicing and keeping Range Rovers on the road. The service by Tim, Trevor and the team is always first-rate and they provide excellent feedback, recommendations and tailor the service requirements to suit the customer. They also keep you informed as the service progresses to ensure no surprises. Very happy with the experiences the Toy Shop has provided.
The Toy Shop has been fantastic in their restoration and customisation of our classic Range Rovers, as well as maintaining our late model Jaguars. Trevor has a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience and has always delivered on time and to the highest standard. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Toy Shop.
We have been sending our cars to the team at The Toy Shop for four years now. They provide an exceptionally high level of expertise, workmanship, and personal service. Nothing is ever a problem, and they always deliver, whether it is for a routine service, warrant of fitness, or a tricky issue that requires serious problem solving. We are loyal customers for life, Jennifer & David.
The Toy Shop have been servicing and repairing our Range Rover Vogue and BMW 535 for many years and I wouldn't take them anywhere else. These guys are always professional and never too busy to help. They also know how to communicate the technical stuff to me when I don't understand. If you love your car I highly recommend them.
I thought you may wish to know I am extremely pleased with the Suplex suspension conversion kit you supplied for my MGF. The handling and ride has improved enormously from the original hydragas system which was leaking fluid and nearly at the end of its useful life. Driving is now a pleasure.
Recommended by a friend, the team at Toy Shop were amazing! So easy booking my Volkswagen Polo in for a check and it was ready for pick up within the day. They even offered me a loan car without my requesting one and I got my car back freshly cleaned which was such a nice surprise. Thanks guys!
Just had a Jag with a few tricky issues cleared up by The Toy Shop, they really went the extra mile to trace the faults down and fix them. Really good to deal with, great service, efficient and really know what they are doing. I'll be taking all my Euro cars there in future, highly recommended.
A well run business with friendly staff, my vehicle is well looked after and serviced on a regular basis. I get a call telling me that it is due and to bring it in. I drive away in a loan car and the day just carries on. Cannot fault Trevor and the team.
Best jag workshop ever
Thanks Patrick and the guys for sourcing my P38 Steering damper when no one else could. Appreciate your help and she handles much better.
Outstanding. The Toy Shop recently chipped the Sport and I have to say it is a different beast and even better to drive. The guys are fantastic.
