Our specialist equipment can read all of the faults recorded in your vehicle to accurately aid in pinpointing any problems you may have, we always carry out a diagnostic check when your vehicle is booked in for servicing and we can provide diagnostic print outs if requested. 

Our Promises

We will always explain to you any faults to ensure you are fully aware of the causes and problems it may cause.


After diagnosing your vehicle, we can carry out any repairs you may need if you wish for us to do so. We provide a wide range of repair services and with our expert technicians, you’ll have the confidence it’ll be done right. Please contact us if you require a quotation for any repairs you may need.

Dealer-Level Facilities

With specialist tools, equipment and trained technicians for Volkswagen group vehicles, we provide a facility that is on par with the main dealers. This gives us efficient productivity which allows us to save time, therefore saving you money on labour costs. We are also expanding into a new building - used solely as a diagnostic and electrical vehicle centre - the first of it's kind in Darwen!


Lodge Bank Garage keeps a stock of all general parts and consumables. We also have access to most VAG and OE quality parts from our suppliers within just a few hours. You have the option of genuine or original equipment (OE) quality parts, we only use high quality replacement parts that are manufactured to OE quality as an alternative to genuine. This enables us to offer you a much cheaper option on some specific parts in the case that the genuine part may be very expensive for no noticeable change in quality to its OE quality counterpart.


We offer the same standards as your main dealer, for a fraction of the price. We can cut the costs of maintaining and owning your vehicle, without compromising any quality of work.
