All aspects of the service are excellent in centre, though I would like it better if the centre had a telephone number that got through direct to Stratstone Tynesdie and not to a central Stratstone call centre.

Service
Thank you for your feedback, we do appreciate your kind comments about the team here on site. I am sorry that you don't feel our regional contact centre to be of benefit when booking in, we have this to streamline the process and hopefully when you next need to contact us you will see the benefits of this. Kindest Regards, Kate Drury Customer Service Leader

See above answers. Wash and vac very poor. Windscreen water bottle needed cleaning not covered by said service costing £160 for a very simple job.
