More About The Company

Who we are

Ian Timbrell

IST Auto Solutions is an independent company based in Iron Acton, North Bristol. We offer all the things you want in a good, honest reliable garage.

Chief mechanic and owner Ian Timbrell has spent his working life repairing cars. After serving his apprenticeship in the trade, he spent 2 years as an AA service patrolman, and was continually asked by the people he rescued to recommend a good, reliable garage they could go to. Even as a local who knew his area it was always difficult for him to suggest a garage that was reliable and trustworthy so he decided to open one himself, and IST Auto Solutions was born.

Since then he and his team of experienced mechanics have built up an excellent reputation for reliability, honesty, and workmanship. The business has invested in the latest diagnoses and repair equipment to deal with just about anything that needs to be serviced, MOTed or repaired, from old classics to the most technical modern day vehicles.

IST can help your vehicle though an MOT with great deals on everything from tyres to our recommended quality oils. We have grown a reputation for efficient, quality, and competitively priced work like cambelt, timing belt and clutch replacement, and can use our considerable experience to diagnose and solve faults.



Our aim

Our aim is to generate long-term loyalty and trust with our customers, who will return to us when they require garage work knowing they will always get an excellent service, at a competitive price.

We are...


We know it's not a nice feeling being without your car, and we tend to have a good idea how long work will take so we endeavour to complete the work quickly, and we will contact you before commencing any further necessary work.


We've been doing this for quite a while and we like to think we are some of the best mechanics in the area, using equipment and suppliers up to the standard of any main dealer.


Trust is something we value highly in the auto repair world, and are keen to gain to encourage customers back year after year.


Experience is a real plus in the motor mechanics, which is what we have a lot of. Many different types of problems occur with vehicles, and despite modern diagnostic help they can be difficult to diagnose. Chances are we've see it before and know what's needed to put it right.

Happy to help

We're always happy to help.

Opening hours
