Car Repairs with the Personal Touch

1st 4 Garage Services, a local Vehicle Repair and MOT Centre was started in 2000 by Mr. James Holland a former Teacher of car maintenance at London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and the Faircross annexe in Hurstbourne Gardens in Barking.   With his qualifications and experience, James decided to open a garage business based on honesty and integrity.  Over the years, the business has grown and now consists of two fully equipped garages employing mechanics with the knowledge and skills required. In November 2015, James wanted to reduce his workload and the business was sold to Jeraca Limited.  James remains involved with the business and is indeed the AE (Authorised Examiner) for our MOT testing facilities – so we still keep him occupied !   Thankfully all the other staff have stayed with the new company and are embracing the new whilst continuing to offer excellent customer service.
