***** ABOUT US *****

We are a professional ex-BMW staffed and owned business, who through 30 years of being in the retail motor trade understand the importance of quality, preparation and customer experience.

Here at Shire Cars, we understand the importance of customer care, which translates to you as an approachable, honest and trustworthy business looking long term to keep all our customers under our umbrella.

High standards and a no quibble policy with all work fully guaranteed we have already surpassed our expectations locally. Now with what is the best aftermarket partner in BOSCH, we are aiming higher, striving to be the best local garage within our area. Please come and see us or give us a call for a warm welcome where nothing is too much trouble and we will always try to fix any problem to your time frame.

Since opening in July 2008 we took over a well-established car sales site without a working workshop. We have improved our site to include MOT class 4 facilities and all types of general servicing and repair. Well respected locally we take a no nonsense approach to all work undertaken offering a 'touch and see' policy, which means we have no issues over any work been checked by anyone so as to remove any mistrust associated with garage repairs. This has served us well with all parts been offered to view after replacement usually left in your car so can be checked and verified against the car.

Offering quality used cars, most are sourced from main dealerships with low ownership and the benefit of a full service history. We prepare the cars to a very high standard and have our own workshop, valeting facilities and a brand new MOT bay.

Our showroom is open 6 days a week (see above for opening hours), our friendly and courteous staff are available to assist and discuss with you all your motor requirements. Please get in touch today and we will do everything we can to help you.


Where we cannot resolve any complaints using our own complaints procedure, we use Ombudsman Services Ltd for dispute resolution.
