As a former academic I don't do 100! scores: there is always room for subtle improvement! This said, the staff gave informed and polite pre-purchase advice giving me a real sense of confidence in your Dorchester team; I had the alternative of on-premises and online quotations; this was clearly a well-managed retail outlet with the manager taking pride in his operation by personally sweeping the reception floor. In short, all a far cry from another rival operator about a mile up the street in Dorchester that I previously patronised!

Staff are always willing to help and always feels like they go the extra mile in terms of the overall customer service experience (particularly the management). Always give peace of mind and never make you feel silly for asking / checking the vehicle itself.

very professional, friendly and efficient staff who could not have been more helpful. extremely pleased and will use your company in the future. thank you
customer drinks machine would be an added bonus.
Superb service from Dan and Harry
I recently visited the Dorchester (Dorset) Branch. I was very impressed with the quality of workmanship and also the professionalism shown by Michael and his team. The work that was quoted for was alos a lot cheaper than your rival Kwik-fit and best of all I managed to get a 20% discount on my final bill.
Very helpful and courteous counter staff. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone was treated with the same care and attention if they wanted new tyres or just a repair.
Flat tyre on a bank holiday in Dorchester. No problem in fitting us in and informing us at all times of the progress. Excellent customer service and did it quicker than expected.
I recently had some new tyres put on at the Dorchester branch and I was impressed by the polite and very helpful young man who oversaw the job.
I was extremely impressed with the courtesy, professionalusm, and speed of all the staff at Dorchester branch
Very efficient service, despite there only being 2 members of staff on duty. Clear explanation of the work necessary. No fuss; no hassle.
I had a sudden puncture with a 4 hour journey ahead,Dorchester fitted me in..inbetween running to answer the phone too!!
Michael Claxton is an excellent manager - he develops customer loyalty and reaps the benefits - we’re fussy customers who normally shop around/switch suppliers however we’ve always used this branch since moving to the area 12 years ago
Well run, friendly, professional branch.
very good service
Good customer service & accommodating.
Michael Claxton at your Dorchester branch was particularly helpful.

The friendly welcome, the professional service and the reasonable prices.
Outstanding customer service.
Friendly people ,very helpful
Good service but had to wait a little for my opointment.
Good courteous service. An effort is actually made to be professional, unlike some other tyre shops.
The professionalism of the team was very impressive headed up by Michael Claxton - a real pleasure to do business with.
Professional and efficient and always give the best price
The chap that served me (Michael Claxton, I think) was fantastic. He spotted I had the wrong type of tyre on my vehicle and he was very efficient serving multiple customers at once. And the work was done straight away.
Really nice, genuine and professional staff, a real credit to your company. Thank you so much.
Good service. Very polite
Amazing service by Michael Claxton and Julian Pulford - thank you!!!!
It was a Sunday and we had a flat they fitted us in as we were on holiday and had a young baby they took tire off it had a big screw jammed in although hey could repair they put a new tire on and checked all tire pressures and reset our computer! Thank you!!!!
I have just had 2 tyres replaced at Dorchester(1 punctured and 1 replaced on advice of Michael Claxton). As I had to wait for some time I was able to see say what an asset Michael is to the company. On a day when they were very short staffed and obviously under great pressure, he was 100% professional and dealt politely and knowledgeably with customer queries both on site and via the phone. He took time to explain what was happening to each customer and gave advice. What a credit to himself and National Tyres.
The staff were exceedingly helpful in fitting my new tyre as an emergency last Friday 3 March. unfortunately they did not have a matching Michelin tyre in stock, but they did emphasise that I should go back in the next 30 days for a free tracking check.
The facilities could be improved i.e customer toilets and drinks machine.I know the manager was unfortunately taken ill on the day of my visit,I think more were needed.

Great customer service and good prices
Helpfulness whilst very busy
The manager Michael Claxton is always polite and helpful. He explains things in an easy to understand way.
This guy Michael is an amazing asset to your company.
He was one man down and really busy.completely sidetracked constantly by the customers trying to access other branches....nightmare...but he kept calm and gave them the correct numbers.
helpful & pleasant service. Reasonable prices. vehicle presented clean & protected.
Price of tyres and service given is excellent
Excellent customer service
Great online deal with budget tyre. Great friendly and knowledgeable in store service by Michael Claxton.
Professional, competent and friendly service which could not be faulted.
The service was excellent. I had rear brake pads and discs replaced. I also asked for a quote on new tyres - Michelin energy savers - the quote I got was £350 for all four and I was told this was a special price only applicable when you buy four at once. I then got a quote from DCM Tyres in Blandford and they quoted me £65 per tyre. (This price includes fitting and VAT.) That's £260 for four, and that's their everyday price regardless of how many you purchase. That's a large saving over your quote which I found a bit disappointing.
Good professional service
Your staff are always polite and helpful while not being pushy.
Convenient hours, good personal service. Can be trusted

Very good service, as ever

Staff were very helpful; came in with what I thought was a minor problem; investigation showed something more serious in all four tyres so new tyres now on order for next day delivery!

helpful and knowledgeable staff
Was looked after by the staff and shown other money saving deals/offers that saved me money.
Total satisfaction with all aspects of service provided.
I approached five other tyre suppliers in Dorchester and not only were you the cheapest, but Michael Claxton was the most helpful and informative person I spoke to. I watched the whole tyre changing and tracking process, noting that it appeared to be extremely thorough. Michael's feedback on the condition of my vehicle following inspection was very comprehensive.
Competitive and price matching service. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Seen and work completed within an hour.
Excellent customer service
Prompt service - excellent cost- peace of mind
Your employee Michael Claxton in the Dorchester branch gave us the most amazing service on Saturday 29/08/15. His customer service skills are second to none with a very pleasant personality and although very busy he managed to fit in a tyre replacement whilst we were shopping as we don't live very close. I hope you can get a message to him as to how impressed we were. Many companies could learn customer service skills from Michael so thank you.
So helpful and efficient
Very good service regarding a tyre guarantee
Expert & very friendly service from a knowledgable manager. NB whilst checking my tyres the phone rang in the office & whilst he got there ASAP the caller was obviously not happy & said he would make a complaint. I can assert that the manager (Michael Claxton) was at all times helpful & courteous to me & other customers & acted with a very high level of professionalism, even when dealing with the complaining customer.
Efficient, good customer care and explanations.
Good service, local, tyres in stock
A lady came into the depot while I was there and I felt the staff could have done more to help her. I also feel that they should keep more of the popular size tyres in stock so that you dont have to make two journeys to get tyres fitted.
Polite, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Excellent customer service.
friendly and fast srvice
They were very helpful
Because the service is just so good. Friendly staff, quick and reliable service.
The level of service at the Dorchester branch was fantastic, the waiting room is kept really clean as is the desk etc. Michael was polite and told us the maximum cost before we went ahead and also thanked us for our service. Well organised and efficient.
Great customer care
Friendly and informative service at a very good price.
Very honest and helpful staff
Great service as always from National. Stuart at your Dorchester branch yesterday was extremely helpful, polite and friendly from my initial phonecall to the fitting of the new tyres. He also offered some good tyre care advice and made me feel welcome and comfortable throughout the whole process. I would recommend National Tyres without hesitation.

Problem over tyre delivery
Friendliness and efficiency
I came in on a walk in basis and was dealt with quickly and professionally. I was offered a coffe while I waited and given some much needed advice on maintenance on my tyres.
Excellent customer service. Feels more like a family run business than a national company.
Good service. Honest advice (ie they tell you if your tyres are still ok, rather than trying to get a sale). Also they are happy to check things out eg a rattle.

Happy with the service
They are very helpful in our local branch, without being pushy or trying to make us have new tyres before we need to. They almost always have the tyres we need in stock, and if not can get them quickly. They are not a cheap or standard size.

Very good service.. local store not open on Sundays
Because you dealt with my car within an hour of bringing it to you and were very helpful.
While waiting in the Dorchester branch today, I observed the staff dealing with a range of customers. It was an exemplary demonstration of customer service during a very busy period and included some challenging customers, some older and with other communication issues. Every staff member without exemption is a credit to your business. Although some distance from my home town, I returned to this branch due to the previous good service and I will again as well as recommending to friends and I believe all the satisfied customers from today will so do. Well done to all.
Very friendly staff and work has been carried out swiftly. Reception area slightly shabby and outdated reading material makes this a 9
Staff very friendly and dealt with enquiry immediately, but slightly shabby reception area.. seen better ones
First contact on the phone was professional, checked my request for new battery was a real problem.

Having booked in at the last moment, receiving a slot, a warm greeting and with only a half hour window in which to have works done, I came away poorer financially, but richer knowing there are some good people in the workplace offering excellent customer care.
continued good service
The staff at the depot I visited (Dorchester) were professional, friendly and very helpful. I was served by Dean Woolford and he was very polite and professional and put me at ease.
I received first class service by two gentleman from your Dorchester branch after I had broken down and had to be taken to them by the AA. It was refreshing to receive such a good service in this day and age when it is so often lacking. They were extremely professional and kept me informed at every stage and assisted with a detailed list of the work that would be required once I returned to Bath. I can't praise them enough and just wish they were closer to Bath!
Quick, polite service
Went in to your Dorchester Branch on a Sunday as the battery on my car had packed up completely. Firstly i was amazed to find that it was open on a Sunday unlike a lot of your competitors. Secondly you had what i needed in stock and thirdly the service was brilliant. The person who dealt with me was Michael Claxton according to the receipt, and i just want to say that i found him very helpful, efficient and extremely polite. I went on to puchase a pair of tyres while i was there and he carried out a very thorough check underneath my vehicle which impressed me too. If this is the standard of service on a Sunday, then through the week with full staff on duty must be amazing. Will definitely recommend to others and i will be back to National Tyres when i need anything else
