If you’re booked in to have some work done down at our HQ here in Poole, Dorset it’s worth knowing a few things that you can do with your time whilst you’re here especially if you’re here for a good few hours whilst the magic happens.
Depending if you’re staying with us whilst the car is being worked on or venturing outside we’ve come up with a few different options to keep you entertained.
Downstairs we’ve put together a small lounge where you can relax whilst with us or if needed the ability to carry on working. Whilst being a nice relaxing environment we’ve got some great amenities to keep you going.
First up we’ve got you covered when it comes to drinks and snacks. All of these are complimentary and you’ve got the choice of coffee from our Nespresso machine, tea or a selection of cold drinks from our fridge.
Our choice of snacks is usually dependent on how many are eaten by our team but usually comprises of biscuits, chocolate bars and perhaps the odd confectionary item.
The IKEA “Klippan” sofa was the obvious choice for our lounge, not only does it look good but is very comfortable to relax and take it all in whilst with us.
Whilst relaxing you’re welcome to watch our Smart TV. Whilst we don’t have any Freeview channels (Just yet) it has all the latest up-to-date apps built in such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, iPlayer, ITVX and many more! Remember to bring your logins so you can gain access to your personal account and get your own personalised recommendations.
If you need to carry on working or prefer to use your own devices then we have Complimentary Wifi that is super easy to connect to either from your laptop, tablet or mobile.
Whilst you’re with us and do want to venture out for some more substantial food we’re lucky to have a great independent establishment locally.
The Mole Hut (Great name) is a short walk down the main road which has anything from sandwiches to breakfast to burgers. We’ve got one of their menus so just shout if you want to take a look or place an order with them.
You can find out more about them over on their Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/themolehut
If you’re going to be with us for a while then it’s worthwhile venturing out further a field. Sadly being on an industrial estate there isn’t a great deal to see or do. We are however lucky to have access to Holton Heath Train station which is just a 10min walk from our building which can take you directly into Poole for as little as £3. Normally the train leaves every 30 / 60mins depending on the day.

Home to the world’s second largest natural harbour and the famous Sandbanks beaches you’ll find plenty to keep you busy for the day. The town centre has all the usual shops and food establishments to keep you entertained and then it’s a quick train ride back!
Also a great option to get you back home quickly if you’re planning on leaving the car with us overnight or a few days.

Last but not least, if you are really coming from far away or your vehicle is in for more than a day it might be worth booking a place to stay for the night so you have somewhere to stay or prevent an early start.
The most popular hotel that our customers seem to stay at is The Premier Inn at Holes Bay. It’s conveniently located and whilst you’re there, you’ll benefit from some great views and also a short walk into Poole Town Centre. It’s also great for when you come to see us as it’s just down the Dual Carriageway and only takes a few minutes to get to us!
