Gemma & Matt Friend established Car Friend in Norton Canes in 2012, to complement their existing, very successful business, TrackToys.
We are a multi-award-winning independent garage carrying out repairs, maintenance and MOTs on all makes and models. Our customer-focused ethos, attention to detail and simple passion for what we do is widely known across Staffordshire. Highly Commended by the Motor Ombudsman in their Garage Star Awards in 2020, we are the obvious choice when your car or van needs some TLC.
Servicesure is a UK-wide network of highly-respected independent garages.
All members of this network must meet strict criteria and an inspection to be awarded membership and Car Friend were very proud to have been accepted in 2020. We must adhere to their strict Code of Conduct across our customer service and standard of workmanship. We also offer their Brakesure, Batterysure and Oilsure initiatives, providing eligible customers with free brake pads and shoes, batteries and oils for life. The highest standards and peace of mind are guaranteed when you choose Car Friend.
Car Friend understand that a large bill for vehicle maintenance or repairs can often be unexpected.
Payment Assist allows our customers to spread their bill over 4 or 6 months, interest-free, and lots of our customers take advantage of this easy way to take the pressure off their finances. Choose to split car repair bills over 4 or 6 months, no credit check for bills less than £1000, no fees and no interest. Ask any of our staff for more details.
TrackToys is where it all started for us over 20 years ago.
Transferring our skills and years of experience working on high performance and modified race and track cars was a natural progression and so, Car Friend was born. TrackToys still provides the full gamut of services from a simple modification or performance enhancement, to a complete build, along with full trackside support. The possiblities are endless so check out our dedicated TrackToys website…
