  1. Thanks to the lads at Whiston motor Factors for diagnosing and fixing my golf buggy which has been playing up recently. They sourced and fitted 4 new batteries and its now better than new. I had taken it to some so called specialists who tried to charge me for new chargers and controllers which it obviously didnt need. These guys went above and beyond the service expected and I would happily recommend them to anyone. Thank you from me and my wife

  2. I have used whiston motor factors for many years at Whiston, St Helens and now Liverpool.. Andy has gone far and beyond to fine me parts for my Mk2 fiesta based kit car and motorhome. I have no connection with the company other than a satisfied customer

  3. Regarding the previous two comments , could both persons please contact Andy at 01744 26181 please state it is regarding posts made on the company website an you will be directed to me.

    As everyone can see we are open to constructive criticism, I am intrigued to find out what brake pads we sell which are £28 an our bulbs at £5.99 are still £4 cheaper than Halfords.

    You will always beable to buy cheaper somewhere if you look hard enough, you could waste a couple of hours or burn up fuel looking to save a £1......penny wise & pound foolish is the expression i believe.

    My personal opinion is that both of these posts are of the malicious nature by either a disgruntled ex member of staff or a competitor , hence the redirecting & brand naming, a poor attempt by small minded people.

    We remain a Family business, in the last 2 weeks i have served on the counter at Liverpool, Whiston & St Helens Branches....the people ive met an served have only increased my desire an intrest to continue selling carparts an serving customers.

    Thank you to all our genuine costumers
    best regards

  4. What has happened to this place! Used to be reasonably cheap and staff used to be helpful and friendly but when i EVENTUALLY got through on the telephone, after 3 attempts!, the service i received was appalling, i wanted a set of front brake pads for my car and i offered to give my vehicle registration and the response i got was "It'd be quicker to just tell me what your car is" then i was quoted £28! I rang another motor factors in st. helens, they happily took my registration, with no sarcastic excuse not to do so, and i was quoted a set of Apec branded pads £12 cheaper than Whiston! This cheaper factors is a further distance to travel but with such a large saving its worth it. As this isn't the first time i've been overcharged (lightbulbs are another issue) i'm afraid you've lost me as a customer and if you keep blatently ripping people off with your extortionate prices and if your staff continue with their foul attitude and inexcusable behaviour when asked to do what they're paid to do then you're going to lose a lot more!

  5. Answer your phones when they ring please. We need to get prices but your phones either ring and ring or start to transfer at which point we hang up or just give up and go somewhere else. Phil

  6. Car batteries start from around £30 and increase upwards to well over £100 we have numerous options on size and amps for each vehicle in stock. We only sell Lucas and Varta branded items so be sure to check out the brand as well as the prices if shopping around. Your local branch will be able to advise further.

  8. after fitting four concentric slave cylinders to the same vectra we decided to by a real one from these lads, the other ones lasted no more than four months but they were cheaper. we fitted the whiston one which was £20 more money but the car hasnt come back, buying cheap parts has cost us money as the labour for the last refits came out of are pockets. thanks lads
