Bowles Garage is a friendly, family-run company from Hitchin offering car servicing, mechanical car repairs and car body repairs to motorists in the surrounding North Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire areas. With a skilled technical team that shares 90 years of combined trade experience, we believe that choosing Bowles Garage is a decision that’s beneficial not just to you, but also to the car that you drive.

We match local dealerships for their standards of workmanship but don’t have their overheads.
