HQ Auto & Leisure - Your Local Car Repair Centre in Penrith

The Cumbrian countryside may be beautiful, but it sometimes isn't so kind to our cars. There are no precautions you can take for rampaging wildlife bashing into your car; nor for the potholes around the darkened corner.

At HQ Auto & Leisure we offer a remedy to these scuffs, bumps and "bruises" that can be caused by narrow lanes, stray stones, waving branches and wayward animals. We have all been driving along when suddenly something jumps in the road (usually a pheasant) and despite this creature being small in size, it can leave a hell of a dent in your bonnet!

We have facilities to make bodywork repairs and/or replacements for most vehicles. Our experienced mechanics are hardworking and are well versed in the replacement of tyres and batteries, fixing exhausts and adjusting towbars - amongst a range of other skills. Our spacious workshop premises allow us space to not only work on cars and small vans but caravans and motorhomes as well. We are able to offer repairs such as floor delaminating; skylight replacement; damp repairs - even general appliance repairs!

Give us a call on 01768 862376 or send us a message using our Contact page to discuss your requirements and book your repairs.

The exhaust is responsible for filtering and removing harmful gasses created by the engine. Your car's exhaust is essential for your MOT and vital for controlling emissions.

The car exhaust is comprised of several different components such as the diesel particulate filter, catalytic converter, flexi-pipe and more.

We carry a large stock of Platinum Batteries car, leisure and light commercial batteries.

Since reinventing the Platinum brand in 2005, Platinum International had a vision to one day make Platinum the UK's number one selling battery brand.

With the rise of engine Start/Stop systems - where the engine stops whilst the car is idle - the automotive battery industry was faced with a challenge to supply suitable replacement batteries for consumers. Platinum International offer a wide range of batteries suitable for Stop/Start engine vehicles, as well as the traditional car battery and a whole range dedicated to the Leisure industry for caravans and motorhomes.

All Platinum Internationals batteries are designed to meet and exceed the specification of the vehicle manufacturers.
