About Us

In 1985 John opened Oaktree Garage to service the local area of Oak Tree Hill.

Based on a strong foundation of quality repairs and a real belief in offering his customers an honest and service second to none, he soon built a strong reputation for excellent customer service and reliability. It soon became apparent that a gem has appeared in the area. Renowned for honest, straight talking service, John and his team pride themselves in giving their customers excellent service. Oaktree Garage is a true family business as John’s son Charlie joined the business after learning his trade in a local garage followed by gaining management experience with a main dealer. Charlie shares the passion of all who work in Oaktree Garage, this strong passion is shared by all the team at Oaktree with expertise to back up the fantastic reputation this garage has earned in the area. Repeat business is key to the success of the garage and a testament to the reputation John has earned.

In 2005 John opened a purpose-built garage which has a larger workshop area, badly needed by then, as more people heard about the garage and the reliability of the service and a genuine desire to help each customer. There is a large forecourt offering easy access and this allows the growing Car Sales business. John selecting each car for sale personally, and all vehicles, once selected, undergo a thorough examination by the highly qualified technicians, giving each buyer the confidence that their newly purchased vehicle will have no nasty surprises, and if there is not a vehicle in stock, well, just let John know what you are looking for and he will do the leg work for you and find your ideal car.

As their reputation grew further afield, many regular customers travel to Oaktree Garage from great distances. This reputation was only enhanced when John’s son Charlie joined the business after completing his apprenticeship at a local garage, then moving to complete his experience by working for a main dealer rounding out his expertise before joining John at Oaktree Garage, making this business a truly family affair. Charlie shares John’s ethos for customer service and honest repairs and services. Your vehicle will be in the best possible hands at Oaktree Garage.
