"1975 Wilf Holroyd established a car repair business, renting a workshop to the side of the filling station which was originally situated at the current premises. The business flourished and his reputation for value and standards of excellence was founded. 1978 Dave Holroyd joined the business with his father. During the 1980s the business expanded considerably and they decided to purchase the property and further invest in equipment and the infrastructure. An MOT testing facility was developed as well as all other aspects of servicing and repair. 1990s The garage became a Unipart Car Care Centre, part of a network of independent garages. Additionally, the company became an Approved member of the MVRA, who continually monitor and help to improve our standards of customer care and service. A new reception was built to provide a comfortable, clean waiting area for our customers to enjoy. 2009 onwards Weve developed further, achieving B.S.I. PAS 80 Kitemark Approved status and currently, the only independent garage in Chester to have attained this status. What is B.S.I Kitemark Approved Status Maintaining and repairing a car is a major cost and you need to be sure that your vehicle is in the safe hands of a skilled and reputable garage.
