The business was formed over 19 years ago by myself, Steve Parnham and we have been on the same site ever since.

I began trading in 1978 from a workshop in Wimbledon, before moving to Coulsdon in 1991, and I have now been joined by my son Tom, making him the third generation, as my father before me was also in the motor trade. Both Tom and I are fully qualified auto technicians having obtained full motor apprenticeships.

Our premises are located on the A23 close to the junction with Lion Green Road. The premises started life as a Methodist meeting hall, and were converted to a garage back in the early 1900's.

In the first years of the famous London to Brighton run for veteran vehicles, our premises were used as a water stop. Cars could not travel very far in those early days, without having to stop for water and various other servicing requirements. Saturday 14 November 1896 was a red-letter day in the history of British motoring: The 'Emancipation Run' from London to Brighton celebrated the passing into law of the Locomotives on the Highway Act, which raised the speed limit for 'light locomotives' from 4 miles per hour to 14 mph and abolished the requirement to be preceded by a man on foot.

We are a  friendly, family run independent garage, offering a personal service to both our private and business customers, repairing and servicing all makes of cars, and we are a fully approved MOT Testing Station for class 4 vehicles, that is passenger cars up to 3000 kg's. 

We Specialise in Diagnostic Work and General Repairs and offer a full range of services including Vehicle Servicing, Welding to MOT Standard , MOT Testing, Engine diagnostic testing, Steering and Suspension alignment. We also carry a stock of competitively priced tyres, together with batteries and exhausts.

All our work is fully guaranteed and carried out to the highest standard.

All our engineers are fully qualified and have many years experience.  So if you are looking for efficient  first class service but don't want to pay the prices charged by  main dealers, call us  on 020 8763 2229
