I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Sharron and being an avid car and motorbike enthusiast I have always been looking for somewhere to allow me to work on my cars in pleasant, clean, dry environment. Today’s homes rarely have suitable garages – mine is no exception. So I decided to set up a dedicated workshop to allow anyone to be able to work on their vehicles when ever they want to, providing the tools and equipment you wished you had at home but don’t have the space for, or can’t justify the cost for that one off job.
Spanner it is the North East’s first DIY Self Service garage based in Darlington and is open to anyone with the basic knowledge, understanding and enthusiasm to work on and maintain their own vehicle but don’t have the necessary space or tools or the wish to pay ever increasing mechanics bills.
Spanner it is equipped to a professional garage standard with the tools you need, a 4 wheel alignment 4 post lift, Parts & component washers, bead/sand blaster, etc.
Everything you need to do virtually any job, including jobs such as….
Brakes – Pads, Shoes, Discs, Drums etc
Pre MOT checks
…. to name but a few.
1. General overview of the workshop
2. 4 post lift.
Not just for cars, Spanner it is fully setup for motorbikes as well, providing a dedicated motorbike lift and space.
3. Motorbike Bay
4. Outside space
In fact, Spanner it is for anyone, male or female, young or old, who wants to work on their own vehicles without large mechanics bills.
With this in mind I’d like to invite you all to Spanner it for coffee, a look around, a chat, no strings. All are welcome, regardless of vehicle make, model, type, style, colour…………
