I recently had them upgrade my speakers in my transit van and fit stinger road kill sound deadening. They did an excellent job. Young chap (Ryan?) was helpful and professional throughout. I would use them again.

Had my sub fitted there really good bit more expensive but I'm more then happy with them and would happily use them every time I need something

Auto Technix Southampton Ltd

63 Alexandra Rd, Southampton SO15 5DH, UK – 023 8057 7047

As always a professional service. They should think of a remote services as well. The issue I had was solved for about 4 minutes with the laptop linked with the car. If they were able to come to the it I would have spared a parking ticket and the recovery costs...

quoted £300 by Mercedes after they checked the battery on key fob and told me it wasn't working. 10 mins today at Auto Technix AND no charge because all it needed was re-syncing. So I saved a lot of money AND they were honest enough not to sell me a new one. Highly recommended.

241 Winchester Rd, Southampton SO16 6TP, UK – 023 8078 9666

A1 - Five Gold Stars. A more dedicated and expert team I have yet to meet. Exemplary customer service. Some examples: Selling me a £30 lock for £5 when the first one fell out of the holder. Not the slightest quibble for twice exchanging faulty lights. Allowing a test ride in the car park to decide on frame size. Replacing the entire transmission as a free warranty repair, where others would have charged as 'wear and tear'. Never being to busy to assist. Picking up the phone promptly! I recommend.

I had some great service by Sean and his colleue (didnt get his name but he had plenty of tattoos!). They seemed to really care about solving our issues and did so very efficiently. great service

Had the opportunity to sit down with Dave and Lee today. What a wonderful down to earth team. They are honest and genuinely wanted the best outcome for me. They care. And it’s what makes the biggest difference as I was truly looked after from beginning to end. This customer service has rubbed off on the rest of the staff. Fantastic people, fantastic company.

Non pushy, knowledgeable and helpful. Given time to look round the car on my own without pressure. Extremely friendly service. Thank you

Sparshatts Of Southampton

333 Millbrook Rd W, Southampton SO15 0HW, UK – 023 8077 1112

If you are going to buy a car from here ask for Rikkie Amer, he’s a top lad, easy to speak to really helped me with all my questions and queries. Also he got a few things sorted on the car for me before selling it and I was exceptionally happy with the service! Thank you! Once again ask for Rikkie Amer. Give this man a pay rise👍🏻

Dealt with Rik (Fortunetly after reading some of the other reviews). Bought the car and drove it off all in a couple of hours, did have a bulb missing from the headlights which they told me to replace and it did get forgotten but after chasing them up they did eventually send through a cheque for the correct amount.

Filling Stations

Redbridge Rd, Southampton SO15 0LT, UK – 023 8077 8375

Convenient location and price is always reasonable but sometimes queuing to get in to the station can be dangerous as it backs up onto the main road.

All been done out and looking good well stocked shop

110 Northam Rd, Southampton SO14 0QL, UK – 01923 714280

Reasonable prices compared to some other competitors. If you don't have a vehicle and you don't actually drink Gasoline to get high then may I suggest a "Non" petrol establishment.

There is a women who works there weekdays (I've normally been at around 6pm), middle-aged, possibly Polish(?) who seems to have real problems finding parcels (Collect+), when other staff members find them within seconds. I get a couple of parcels per month delivered to Esso, and if I try to pick them up after work (weekday evenings, around 6pm), then a queue normally builds up behind me while this particular member of staff hunts for them under the counter. Even after I describe that it is a "box", she still keeps picking up small packets and bags. Sometimes she just says "it's not here", yet I know for CERTAIN that it is, because I have the signed-for notification. When I visit on Saturday morning to pick up the parcel that apparently has "not arrived", the young girl (also Polish I believe?) is able to find it instantly, so I do not know what the older lady during the week was doing! This particular lady is also rude, and sometimes just vacantly stares at you after typing in your pin code into the card machine. The other members of staff are fine, it is just this particular member of staff that appears to be letting the side down!


Millbrook Road, Southampton SO15 0JZ, UK – 023 8051 0705

They're a really efficient and friendly team in here, plus they gave me a little bag of cake, as a gift!! Loved it and it works.. I always go back! 👍

Motorcycle and Scooters

Hampshire Motorcycle Centre

222 Shirley Rd, Southampton SO15 3FL, UK – 023 8022 4895

Been going for a few years now, my friends recommend them and trust them which is why I started going. They've always done a good job for me, taken bikes and mopeds in for all sorts and I'd be confident buying a bike off them too. Friendly staff, willing to chat and be honest about what needs work, also happy to talk through problems and give advice in my experience. I wouldn't go anywhere else unless I was pressed to for time and they were fully booked! There are probably cheaper garages out there but price reflects pride in work and if you respect the job they're doing you won't mind paying a little bit more to know your bike is in good hands.

I dropped the bike off no problems. I put my bike through a basic service for 180 pounds all that seems to have been done was an oil change and filter the rest were checks an experienced biker could have shown me. I thought the bike would feel better smoother gear changes but it didn't. A thanks for adding a clip on the rear wheel nut by the way. But the price puts me off so next time I'll look on YouTube an do an oil change my self.

Infinity Motorcycles

64-66 Bevois Valley Rd, Southampton SO14 0JR, UK – 023 8033 8311

Bought my biker-chick girlfriend a pair of casual-looking boots from this shop as a Xmas present. She also bought her helmet from here too and said she was impressed with the service and helpfulness of the staff. This was true on my visit too. Helped me pick out a good boot and showed me other options too without being too pushy which I appreciated. They didn't have the right size for the one I liked so they ordered it and arranged to have it delivered to my work. Arrived early. Overall very happy, especially for one who is not a biker man at all! Felt very at ease! As weird as that may sound. =)

Josh talked me through all the info on the items I was interested in and suggested lots of other suitable alternatives. Was just so relaxed and easy to talk to and ask advice. Walked out with some great things and at great price.

John Oldfield Motor Cycles

79 Waterloo Rd, Southampton SO15 3BS, UK – 023 8063 0326

Don't use Honda's anymore my 1st legal bike a 78 CB100N (new) I wanted to change things you know, center stand only to center and side, that sort of thing (125cc john told me fit straight on and it did I was 16 then)! He always had what I wanted for my CB200 CD200 400/4 and 750F2 I moved onto Suzi after that and lost contact with a great motorcycle parts dealer I am glad to see John still going after so many years when so many places have gone with the wind.. Excellent then and by the reviews he never changed his stance on customer service Nice one John m8 all the best.

Mr Oldfield has supplied me with parts for my trusty XL200R (an 80s import from Italy) and other small Hondas. He has in stock many parts that I did not think I could obtain. Wonderful service.

Had so many issues with my laptop. From not connecting to the internet and running so slow. I needed it urgently for University. The lady manager went out of her way to make sure that it came as a priority. I got it back within a few hours. All fixed and the price I was quoted was reasonable for the amount of work that needed doing. Cheap for students and the work done is effective. I’ve had no issues since. Thank you Portswood Computers.

I have used EG Systmes quite a few times in the past (due to having a dodgy PC for some time - which is now running smoothly pretty much all the time). They have always been quick to respond to my cries for help and timely in sorting out the problems. I have been pleasantly surprised at the costs involved on some of the lengthy jobs they have undertaken, and think they provide excellent, professional value for money. Not only do they fix the problem but they also offer proactive advice to save future costs whenever possible. Them being able to access my PC remotely (but securely) has proved a huge help in keeping costs down in detecting/fixing problems and makes things very time efficient. I would not hesitate in recommending their services to others and in fact have on several occasions in the past! Don't take my word for it though - give them a go!!!

Greatly impressed by the guys at EG Systems. I’d had a number of problems with my PC which had just been piling up, and my searching the internet for help and trying a few fixes myself had just made things ten times worse! There is nothing more dangerous than a PC user that ‘thinks’ they know what they’re doing! I made one phone call and explained the issues, then dropped the PC off the following day, and within 48 hours it was sorted out, with everything working as it should, and I could even pay by PayPal if I wanted. The guys at EG Systems took the time to understand and evaluate the problems, were highly knowledgeable and professional throughout, and were quick and cost efficient in resolving my issues. Highly recommended!

One-man band (at present). Graham therefore offers a unique, personal and professional style. Excellent quality, and good process. Important to understand that he operates from the 2nd storey, and to be prepared to negotiate the secure entry points, so allow extra time if you are dropping-off or picking-up. Flexible enough to repair cock-ups made by users (me) and to fit user-supplied spares, but will only take on work that he (a) is confident of completing and (b) for machines that he tests at acceptance. Honest and open, but not a "slick smoothie", ie tells it straight. Once you accept that, he is a pleasure to work with.

Really helpful and knowledgeable staff members always smiling and extremely kind... definitely we needed a shop like this in the middle of the town. I went for a bike and the super busy manager called Nacho was extremely helpful helping to decide which bike was the most suitable for me and my daughter. I tried it around the park in front of the store and I went into finance meanwhile another staff member offered me a nice latte. Incredible and efficient service at the store. Thank you very much!

Been a customer for 5 months now, absolutely love the staffs for their politeness and helpfulness. Very efficient in bike servicing, good range of accessories in their shop and nicely organised shop layout.

Electric Bike World

54 Bedford Pl, Southampton SO15 2DT, UK – 023 8023 6540

Dealt with Stuart and Tony - very helpful. My friends mother and step dad bought 2 electric bikes from here and they are very happy with them. Would thoroughly recommend.

I have nothing but praise for Stuart & Electric Bike World. I bought a folding LifeCycle Traveller (online) in August 2015 & have been very happy with the bike + the support I have had since purchase. I am based in London and don't have a car, so can't get down to Southampton for any servicing, but Stuart has been at the end of the phone & always responds promptly to emails for the service needs I've had. For example, I had an crash that stuffed up the motor kill switch houses in the brake levers, but I was able to problem solve this as the cause and then fixed it myself with guidance from Stuart. Another time I needed to change the pedals and he posted me the tool I needed to loan to do this, at his own cost. More recently I needed a replacement front wheel axle lock nut, and again Stuart very generously posted me x2 for free - fantastic post sales support!! All other bits & pieces I have needed doing (general bike servicing of cables etc) have been mechanical so could be done by a normal bike shop. I just needed to show them how to unplug the motor when taking off the back wheel (there is a little arrow showing you where to line up the plug to reconnect it - easy peasy). But good to know that Stuart was always happy to help if it was ever needed it to reassure the bike shop. I've been extremely happy with the LifeCycle Traveller as a bike. Even though it is Chinese made the motor is well sealed & has been fine, no electrical problems at all. The front tektro disc brakes are really good quality (the better quality bikes have a disc brake). Rear brake is a normal pad brake. Ive been able to replace both brake pads myself no problems at all. The brakes are not hydraulic so much easier to maintain. Having an electric bike has changed my commuting life - no more expensive and overcrowded tube, no more tube strikes, it is much faster and I also get fresh air every day. Even cycling in the rain is fun if you have good wet weather gear (jacket, trousers, under helmet cap & shoes) - these are my favourite days riding as there are less cyclists on the road & very exhilirating.

I brought a chain for my Sink Plug Hole too & guess what......I got home & it was still in the bag. Some people really need to get out more though instead of writing 'war & peace' on here & giving themselves an Embolism.

Guy who was working was friendly and casual, not pushy on sales at all. Very happy visit and got some fab hockey shoes. For the size of the store they have a decent stock and very reasonable prices. Would definitely recommend!!

Bought some Hercules weight plates back in 1958 in this shop. Still have and use them. Good to see the old shop is still going.

Helpful staff and a post office.

The Range, Southampton

230 to 234 Winchester Rd, Southampton SO16 6TL, UK – 023 8077 5577

Not the biggest of their stores but I found it to be stocked with the same quality of goods if only two thirds the amount. I visited in November and they had a great selection of Xmas goods and lights available. They have a substantial pet clothing section and the most wonderful soft furnishings department I could have spent a few quid on if not for Xmas! The biggest downfall of this store is that they have a limited store parking (but all free) and they need to consider the usage of their designated disabled parking spaces. When I visited there were 5 spaces made for disabled drivers but only 2 spaces had cars occupying them; the remaining spaces were filled with shopping trollies! For this reason I'm afraid, they lose a star at this branch!

Has a lot of variety and well stocked. There's a strong chance you can find what you need for the home here. Unfortunately it's a building showing it's age now. Not the cleanest or well looked after. A lot of staff standing around not doing much.

Went to Cloud Wine for the first time a couple of weeks ago to get Prosecco for a friend. I had no idea what to get and the lovely somelier suggested a great one. We had it later in the day and it was delicious. Great, friendly, knowledgeable staff and very reasonable prices.

Amazing wine shop that I visit perhaps too frequently! Friendly and knowledgeable staff that obviously take pride in suggesting the perfect wine, and I haven't had a bad one yet!

Bitter Virtue

70 Cambridge Rd, Southampton SO14 6US, UK – 023 8055 4881

Great selection of craft beers, packed to the rafters. An eagle eyed friend even managed to grab a small bottle of Cantillion. Pleased to see some of my favourites present from Omnipollo and Wild beer as well as some great limited editions.

A bit of a quirky place. Could do with better signage to indicate categories of beers (they are geographical, but no signs). However, there are beers that you cant find anywhere else, so thats a real bonus!!
