Need and English Garage near Malaga?

I did. The last few days heading south brought a distinctly ominous noise emanating from the van and images of something major going kaput on some camino rural, lost amongst endless olive trees.

I hit the Mediterranean coast at Torre del Mar a bit to the east of Malaga and found Talleres Simon (Simon’s Garage). Owned and run by a very friendly English couple, Simon and Tracy, it is located in nearby Velez-Malaga.

A quick diagnosis of a shot front wheel bearing and Simon soon had the new bearings fitted the next day when they were delivered. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Simon: he’s a no-nonsense mechanic who does a thorough job and knows his stuff.

Talleres Simon –  Calle Claudio Coello, 9. Velez-Malaga

609 823 137 or 951 067 790



If you need to kill a few hours McDonalds (Wifi) and Lidl are about a 500m walk away by the main Avenida (lower left of map)
