The Workshop

Expertise, Knowledge, Experience


Our 6-man workshop team has, between them, countless years’ worth of knowledge and experience. We handle a wide range of jobs, many for customers who have been coming back to us for years. You are assured of personalised service, expertise and efficiency.


Whilst we specialise in 4x4s, we can handle any work for any vehicle up to 5 tonnes.


Taking the time to get to know our clients, making sure that we understand their wants and needs, and that we are sticking to deadlines as far as possible. We believe that the customer service we provide is anything but standard.


We pride ourselves in our client relationships, keeping you notified as to our progress – and any changes or issues found as the work progresses.


Our aim is to never surprise you with a different bill to that quoted, and never do extra work without discussing it with you first.



Servicing, Repairs, Maintenance


When it comes to 4×4 servicing and repairs in Shropshire, there is nobody better than McDonald Automotive. We undertake maintenance and repair of all makes and models. Specialising particularly in Land Rover, we like to ensure that you get someone who knows what they are doing when it comes to repairing your vehicle.


We have built up a solid client base in Shropshire, Cheshire, Mid and North Wales over a number of years at our workshop and we would be happy to look at any 4×4. Offering friendly, personalised, efficient service to ensure your vehicle is well looked after, and at competitive rates.


We have a team of dedicated technicians with many years’ experience and knowledge between them, essential with the ever-changing technological advancements in today’s modern vehicles. Our full workshop facilities are equipped to carry out all types of servicing and repairs.


For Land Rovers, all our service work is carried out to their specification, and genuine parts are used where required to comply with Land Rovers manufacturer warranties. Work we have carried out over the years includes ground-up restorations on classic vehicles such as the Series 1 Land Rover and the 101 Forward Control. We use the latest Autologic diagnostic equipment and software and can cater for the full range of Land Rover vehicles, as well as other 4x4s.

Our Services


Automatic Gearbox Flushing & Cleaning

A standard oil change on an automatic gearbox can often
only replace up to 40% of the oil.


The difference at McDonald Automotive? Our specialist equipment changes 100% and cleans up the gearbox with a detergent.


DPF, EGR, Intake Systems, Turbo/Injector Cleaning

Our team offer a comprehensive range of cleaning services for your engine without costly strip-down costs, using our Forte Power Clean machine. We can remove carbon build-up from your intake system, clean poorly performing injectors, sticking turbos, clogged-up EGR valves and even clean your Diesel Particulate Filter. If your 4×4 has failed an emission test, is ‘smoking’, or doesn’t feel as responsive as usual, this could be the solution.

Tyres and Laser Four Wheel Alignment

If your vehicle wears its tyres oddly, or quickly, our Supertracker equipment allows our team to ensure your steering and suspension is set up the way it should be.

Air Conditioning Servicing / Re-gassing

The Workshop team can replace the air-con gas on your vehicle, including both the R134a gas on older models, and the new R1234yf gas on newer vehicles.


We can recover your vehicle from anywhere in the UK, Monday to Friday from 8.30am – 5.30pm.
