Don't get caught out! If your bike is needed over the next couple of months, the rules may change but as it stands our advice is get it Mot'd.

*Notice to ALL customers*
Due to the new lockdown restrictions we have had to take difficult decisions in the interest of public safety.
Spanner has tidied his Mot booking area and booked a haircut and beard trim. 👍
That out of the way, Clarendon Motorcycle's team will continue to employ a common sense approach which has served us well for a combined number of years
(approx 195)
We are open from Monday as normal and will continue to Mot, service and repair your 2 wheeled vehicles throughout the lockdown period.
We will be doing our best to put frontline and essential workers as a priority.
We're also looking at some deals to keep the work steady over the winter months so if you have a project, or something that needs doing give me a call.
We already discount to MAG members and Armed forces.
We are on the look out for any other groups that use their 2 wheeled transport for work purposes..... again get in touch on 01482 219999. Ask for Alan and I'll go through what things we can offer at great rates including free breakdown.
Ride safe. Stay sane.
Santa IS coming....... ❤😉

Hi all.... From all the team at Clarendon Motorcycles, a big thank you to all that posted and supported us last week. It means a lot.
We are a team, but the responsibility for everything that leaves our shop lies with me. Alan
There will always be people who aren't pleased, or gossip and other establishments that feel criticising others work will bring them customers..... well I disagree.
The world runs on communication and the build up of positive relationships, ie trust.
I see this no more important than in the work we do on your bikes, whether a superbike or a moped.
The picture is my (now 9) yr old daughter, and the relevance is every bike that leaves us only leaves when I am confident I would put her on the back of your bike and take it on the road.
There are exceptions, not everything can be fixed, but customers will be well advised of issues before keys are handed back.
We pride ourselves not only on the quality of our work, but our honesty and integrity of what we do. This is also reflected when issues arise.
If any of our customers have ANY issues with what we have done, I invite you to call and/or pop in and see us FIRST.
I guarantee I will put things right if it is our fault, 100%
Again, communication is key.
A successful business isn't just about doing a good job for a fair price. Its how you deal with the issues that arise where your real character shows.
Ride safe all, and thanks again.
Al.

Wow. I wouldn't normally post something like this but as a warning to other bike shops be aware of mr ian Robinson with an old Xj yamaha.
Left us a very critical review that I cannot reply to on Google, so I will reply here.
Firstly, after you arrived with no headlight and I was about booked up I offered you the slot of 12.30 after my lunch and said I needed to go out approx 2pm.
You arrived at 12.20, I did acknowledge you and said I was just finishing my lunch. The bike was in the mot bay and signed on at 12.32, it takes a couple of minutes to get details off the bike.
The 3/4 of the test was carried out, and i did stop once to answer the phone.
I then stopped before the headlight aim test as my 3rd year apprentice (who is awaiting his final results to be a level 3 technician) was using oxy/acetylene nearby, this was done as a matter of safety and to keep an eye on him, he had 2 bolts to heat, it took no more than 3 minutes.
You then became annoyed and the 1st thing you said was we are too busy, and you weren't paying.
Then said cancel the test.
I explained we were nearly finished and an average test can take from 30 to 45mins.
You weren't interested,
I cancelled the test at 1.01pm I have all this documented on the DVSA system,
I didn't charge you for my time, as I am entitled to within mot rules.
You then leave an untrue review, and a review for another local garage that apparently Motd your bike in 15 minutes!
I bet the garage will love the DVSA reading that!.
We follow the testing process set out by the DVSA on every test, no special privilege to anyone as all my customers know.
You were obviously having a bad day, to leave a dishonest review on that basis is just childish.
I hope the garage you used picked up on the faults I had already found with your bike in that 15 minutes, but please make no mistake you are not welcome at Clarendon Motorcycles in any capacity.
Humility, honesty and integrity are principles we work to here.
You obviously don't understand that.

Its Maftin!!
Evenin all, been a while so I'll start with an apology....
Being really busy is a blessing not a hindrance, especially in these testing times. But if I've come across as a bit short of patience the last week or so, it's nothing personal. My mum is in hospital and hasnt been very well, shes stable but still in having tests and it's been hard work running the shop, doing family stuff and not helped by heat etc.... rest assured were on schedule for catch up and should be able to restart booking next week. Massive thanks to the boys at the shop for mucking in, especially Jack who has my back 100% and has no idea how appreciated he is. Also special mention to John at the Shed. John's kept my laughing with his messages and kept checking in on how my mum is, after his post the other night on his page I'll just mirror his comments on Hulls independent motorcycle garages are all about looking after you guys and each other. Again. Much appreciated John. Even got a natter with pete rollo the other day, that was good too. So.... back to the bench and back to the book.
