Serving the community for over 50 years!

From the early days in the late 50’s and founded by Ken Carter as a shell petrol station, Central garage as it was then named, began trading in used cars, repairs, servicing and petrol sales.

Offering renowned and respected levels of service and value for money to all customers, many of whom are still with us today as are their friends and families.

Taking on the BMC (British Motor Corporation) franchise, which eventually became Austin and then Austin Rover as a further development, the company traded for around 25 years in a very successful trading relationship.

Another change in direction came about in 1984 with a move to a rather less well known(at the time) manufacturer – Peugeot Talbot! 1987 – Along came the opportunity to be part of the Ford network and the rest is history!

After almost 25 years our relationship with Ford Motor Company has grown and strengthened! We are very proud of the fact that we have represented the Ford brand for so long and look forward to doing so for many years to come. Still in the same family and run by MD Phil Carter and younger brother Paul, The team look forward to welcoming customers and friends old and new! Come and join our Family!!!
