About us

A family run garage established in Newton Abbot in 1977 and are proud to offer an honest and value for money service. From 1977 to 2006 we resisted the temptation to offer mechanical repair services preferring to specialise in the supply and service of all types of tyres. Being a trusted member of the community we are often asked our opinion or advice regarding a variety of matters including countless stories where customers have received large bills unexpectedly for work carried out at various fast fit and vehicle dealer centres. By the mid 2000’s we were being frequently asked to check vehicle reports and work requirements that our customers had been given when collecting their vehicle from Service or Mot. Although we did not offer mechanical services at that time we did have a good understanding of mechanics. On many occasions when checking vehicles we found the recommendations were incorrect or not as severe or urgent as the report would suggest. In 2006 the adjacent unit to our depot became vacant, so we grabbed this opportunity to start offering Brake, Exhaust and basic Servicing work, after some official training and gaining recognised qualifications of course. In 2008 we employed a mechanic, Tim Owen, who was near the end of his Level 4 Master Tech apprenticeship. Tim’s skills were at a higher level than we had planned to go but we soon found ourselves tackling more complex work such as Timing belts, Clutches and Engine Swaps. In 2014, former Senior Tyre Technician, Mark Aylward completed his level 3 mechanics apprentice with flying colours and he is currently progressing well in level 4. Our former work experience student, Lewis Hippsley is nearing the end of his Level 2 Mechanics Qualification and will surely be offered a placement for level 3. We have developed and now offer full garage services and are constantly investing in new equipment to offer a wider range. In 2014 we completed 1160 mechanical jobs for private and commercial customers. Our Garage Services were created due to a real need and we have developed them whilst embracing our well rooted customer service ethos. In this modern world there is a need for local, honest, compassionate and compliant business such as ours.

Full Service and MOT, Ford Focus

The auto quote you get on this site does not include extras, and I asked for the air con to be done, next I had a cracked coil spring and decided to get both front ones replaced. This is where the figure comes from. If I had just had the normal service MOT done and there was no issues the price was very good when compared to other local workshops. I also listen to what feedback I get from people, if that is good then I am always prepared to pay a little extra for a good service. What you have at this local workshop is a family business which has been here for years, so reputation is and has been built up on trust a quality of service. You are not a number in the line here, you are a person and valued customer. Will be going any time I need work done.
