Owner of DRA Services, Martin Howcroft has been working on Mazda Bongos since 1998 when he was employed as Senior Technician for Longbridge Car Importers, who were one of the first importers of these vehicles to the UK.

He decided to go it alone and DRA Services was born in 2000. From the beginning, we were known for our knowledge on these quirky vehicles and to date we are repeatedly called upon by other garages for our expertise. We are unrivalled in our knowledge of Mazda Bongo. Let us look after your vehicle, it is in safe hands.

    • A really great services and have recommended DRA to all my friends in and around the Croydon area.

    • I have been using Martin at DRA for years. I used to have Ford and Mazda Bongos but he now services and works on my Mercedes. Very knowledgeable on all makes of cars. An excellent service.

    • Great guys sorted my Ford Mondeo other garages wouldn't touch (injectors). Highly recommended

    • Excellent service on our Bongo today. Martin is a fair & honest guy. Would highly recommend DRA Services. Hubby travelled 81 miles to go to DRA Services & so happy he did. We definitely found our trustworthy mechanic, only place our Bongo will be going from now on. Thanks Martin...Tony & Angie 😃👍

    • Brilliant work carried out on my Ford Focus ST. Sorted out all of the issues which meant it flew through its MOT with no issues. Replaced a CV gaiter and carried out a full service as well as some other maintenance bits. Amazing knowledge on all brands, let me know some bits which might need to be done soon as maintenance work but not needed yet!

    • Good, reliable, car servicing and repairing.

    • Martin is friendly, honest and helpful.
      Changed the fuel pump on our Bongo, excellent service and went above and beyond to get our Bongo starting properly.
      We travelled over 85 miles to use him and wont be using anyone else. DRA come highly recommended.

    • I've been going to D.R.A for a while and when I had my first car a Peugeot 206, they were so friendly and honest which was important to me as I had no clue about cars. Therefore, I always went to them for anything because I knew they wouldn't try to take advantage of my inexperience. They are efficient, experienced, reliable and honest mechanics. I recommend to anyone especially anyone who have trust issues with mechanics 😊

    • A proper garage. I took my range rover to 4 different high street garages and none of them knew what was wrong with it bur Martin at DRA fixed it in a hour.

    • Swift service and reliable! Wouldn't take my car anywhere else! Great knowledge
