Car Repairs, Servicing & MOT Testing at Your Garage in Hitchin | Bowles Garage

Welcome to the online home of Bowles Garage, a family-owned and run automotive specialist that’s served the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire areas since 1973. Situated in Hitchin and popular amongst motorists in nearby Barton Le Clay, our team of technicians use their 90 + years of trade experience to provide an unrivalled standard of service, whether in the form of car repairs, car servicing, MOT testing or specialist items such as 4 wheel alignment. As a fully equipped body shop, we also provide bodywork repairs should your vehicle have been damaged in a collision or similar accident.

As an independent garage we have lower overheads than main dealerships and fast-fits, meaning private motorists, trade clients and fleet operators receive dealership standard workmanship at a more competitive price point. Another big draw for our customers is that as a smaller, local business we’re more interested in building long-lasting customer relationships and providing an attentive, tailored service. You aren’t simply churned through a system where you’re no more than a number in the queue.
