No longer servicing. Clearing stock. More info below.

 My landlord is selling my premises.

After 20 years as a Mazda Bongo specialist, I've decided to stop trading.

I thank you all for your support and friendship.

For Mazda Bongo repairs and servicing, I recommend

 PGS (Plymouth Garage Services) or Mayflower Auto Services

These are personal recommendations, based on many years of knowing them and how they treat their customers.

They don't post on Facebook about how many Bongos they've got in this week... but they know Bongos well and are friendly, professional garages. 


My reputation is for trusted, value for money service.

Most of my work comes from positive recommendations and repeat custom.

I'm no longer trading but have stock to clear. I was getting this mechanically sound, ready for MOT, before doing the cosmetics. But I've run out of time, as my unit is being sold on 7th December. Converted by Imperial Leisure Vehicles. The u-shaped rear conversion creates a very usable space. Its a 1997 Mazda Bongo 2.5d 4wd AFT, slate grey, 81,000 miles /130888 kms. History:

I've carried out a major service. This incudes, oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, all fluids and coolant. I fitted new brake discs & pads. Fitted a new cambelt, tensioner & spring.
The underside is solid and it's undersealed - see video on my Facebook page.
The professional conversion is by Imperial Leisure Vehicles. Its a rear conversion, maximising space. Access the living area through the sliding side door, with chrome grab handle.
The rear facing seat seats 3 and has lapbelts. A table attaches in front, folding away when not in use. The seat has been reupholstered, flattened to make a comfortable double bed. The bed is made by laying the seat flat, so it meets the kitchen seats. An insert pops between the kitchen seats, and you have a double bed. See photos.
The kitchen has a double hob and sink with flip-up heat resistant covers. The tap is electric and there's an electric hookup, split charger and leisure battery.
There are 3 storage cupboards in the kitchen unit. They can be accessed both from the living area and from outside (by opening the tailgate).
The kitchen seats have built-in storage space. The table folds away when not in use.
There are electric blinds on the side windows. There are rear & cab curtains.
There's a roof mattress in the roof, where 2 adults can fir. The total sleeping is for at least 4 adults or 2 adults and 3 children. More, if you added an awning.
The underneath is in good, solid condition and has been undersealed.
The paintwork is good.
It has a pair of Thule roof bars and a tow hitch.
There's no MOT. I was preparing it for MOT, so I don't anticipate major problems.
The roof needs new motors. I've included these, for you or your garage to fit; I can tell you how to do this.
The 2 rear arches have started to rust. This doesn't look bad, see photos. They could be taped, or filled for now. I've incuded 2 replacement rear arches, for when you decide to renew them.
The 2 kitchen seat cushions are missing. They make up part of the bed. Replacement foam is easily available from ebay etc for less than £100.
The interior could do with a good clean and polish!
If you can't get to Plymouth to view, I can send you videos of it. I know a recovery firm who can deliver at a competitive price.
If you have any questions, please contact me.

Taking care of Mazda Bongo since 2003!

NT Saltram House NT Saltram beside my garage

Some customers travel many miles to reach my Plymouth garage! Others book their annual service and MOT for when they're visiting Devon and Cornwall. I'm a 5 minutes stroll from NT Saltram House.  Or a 30 minute walk (10 minute drive) from Plymouth's shopping Mall, the historic Plymouth Hoe, Barbican and The National Marine Aquarium. There are parks, cafes, pubs and boat trips. And 5 minutes down the road, there's American golf.

You can find my garage on Social Media
