Hello Rich welcome aboard! This garage are in Edinburgh and have been servicing Bongos for many years:

For undersealing you don't need a Bongo specific workshop, just someone who doesn't mind doing it. Having said that a few Glasgow based members have used this firm in Johnstone:

For body repairs this Haddington based company have been recommended:

Hi!
We are new and also in Edinburgh. Seems to be a Bongo Frenzy here just now :-)
If you see a white S Reg AFT driving about with a black wolf head on the sliding door, that's us. :D

Hi there,

Another Edinburgh Bongo here.

I can recommend The Bongo Barn if you are looking for a Bongo-specific garage. They are new Newcastle, so it's a pleasant 2 hour drive to get there. They do a Bongo-review service, where they will give you a report on the vehicle covering many different aspects and giving them all a red/amber/green score.

Cheers

Thanks!

I’m liking Linton service station having been there twice. It’s a lot nearer Edinburgh.
