ABOUT US

Charminster Garage was established in January 2006 by Anthony Willmington, Nicola Crook and

Gary Osborne, a highly experienced team with a wealth of knowledge of the auto and motorsport

The garage flies the flag of an independent business, however it provides all the services expected

with a main dealership but at a fraction of the cost. The garage offers a very individual and

personalised experience, from a dedicated, professional, reliable and friendly team.

The newly renovated premises in Charminster has recently incorporated the latest state of the art

MOT bay to enable on site testing. Continuous investment in equipment, machinery and diagnostic

technology, with up to date training of staff, enables the garage to competently service and repair

the latest automobiles.

The garage has an excellent reputation throughout the industry, offering a specialised and rounded

knowledge of vintage, classic, sports cars and prestige vehicles.
