In June 2016 we moved Colin’s Garage from Kilkhampton where we had been based for six and a half years. Colin Stretton teamed up with Steve Townsend, who Colin worked with in Basingstoke, and took over A J Motor Services at Pethericks Mill. They now bring over 50 years of combined expertise to Bude. Colin’s Garage is modern yet built on traditional values and service.

Colin’s Garage is the one stop shop for all repairs in Bude, North Cornwall.

Pop in and talk to Colin, Steve or any of the team to discuss any problems or concerns you have with your car, van or light commercial vehicle. We are here to help.
