I'd like to recommend an excellent Daf friendly garage in Newport, South Wales, which I've been using for the last 7 years.
The name of the garage is N. G Davies Automatic transmission specialists ( formerly of Gaskell St, Newport), and they are located on Granville Row, just by the side of George St Bridge in the centre of Newport.
I would never recommend any company that I have not had a very thorough and positive experience of, but my experience with this small business has always been excellent. For me they have done major transmission work to my 44, and have replaced a clutch, bearings, propshaft and drivebelts. They have also done a number of more mundane jobs to the car such as oil changes and tracing a starting problem, etc.
So any Daf people in South Wales wanting a reliable, and most importantly HONEST garage to work on your car, this is the place to go!
Good to hear about this garage - (full address N.G Davies Motors & Co, 12, Granville Lane, Newport, Gwent NP20 2AL, Tel: 01633 257149). I will need to do something about the transmission on my 33 which hides in my barn out beyond Caerleon in Monmouthshire. I would be good to meet you when you're down in Newport feel free to mail me on email@example.com. I'm happy to help out anyone who wants to set up work at Davies as I work just round the corner.
