This video on BBC News from The IMI is to highlight the shortage of vehicle technicians currently today and in future years. Importantly a large majority of current technicians are not EV – electric vehicle trained or qualified to work safely on this newer technology.
It’s not fully certain why the motor trade is not an attractive place to the younger generation of today, possibly as manual labour is not promoted in schools, who knows?
Though post brexit and covid Britain seems to be short staffed in every sector at the moment. Fortunately here at Burch Motor Works all our technicians are trained and qualified to IMI Level 4 to work electric vehicle live systems safely.
Along with apprentices and new recruits coming through to fill the shortage in our industry. More about our new guys in the New Year
Thanks for reading & watching.
Just a quick post to mention we are experiencing a high volume of bookings at present, with our bookings being approx. 2 months in advance.
Last years (stupid) MOT extension combined with amounts of large repair work is pushing our booking times backwards. We are at full capacity and apologise for the cars we’re unable to squeeze in sooner.
If you prefer to have your car mot’d, serviced or repaired with us, please book months in advance to avoid disappointment.
It goes without saying, thank you to all our great, loyal customers for their support!
Once again, thank you so much to all of our customers for taking the time to leave us such amazing reviews. I think 9 reviews in one day must be a record! It means so much to us all. What maybe helping is the Good Garage Scheme is running a Christmas Prize Draw to win a Grand of love2shop vouchers.
So if you have had work carried out by us, please feel free to leave us feedback on the GGS website to be entered into the draw at Christmas
Use code GGSXMAS1000 – Best of luck!
If you’re feeling extra generous, please add the review text to Google as well

Once again, thank you to everyone that takes the time to leave us such great feedback online, to our faces or bring in treats to say thank you. We appreciate it so much, it really brightens our day.
We have been snowed under with extra work for a long time now and feel the pressure to return cars as quickly as we can. So much so we have forgotten to post we have now been open 6 years this March! The time has flown by!
Thank you to all our loyal, fantastic, friendly customers. We appreciate you all very much!
We are still open as normal being an essential service and MOT Station. Listed in the picture below from the latest Gov National Lockdown guide.
We are still carrying out our contactless service with payment by card over the phone the preferred method of payment to reduce contact and time in our reception. Masks are to be worn in reception.
If you’d prefer to carry out all interactions outside just let us know and we can carry that out.
If you have any further questions please get in touch. We are currently booking approx 5 weeks in advance, of course taking on extra breakdowns where possible.
Thank you for your patience
