It all started when...

Now in its third generation, S & B Motors has been a family-run, independent garage since 1965.   The company was founded by Peter Boyce and William (Bill) Slevin.  In 1975 Peter's son, Steve Boyce finished school and started as a trainee.   Steve worked through the ranks, gaining both experience and management skills from his father and Bill.

 

Bill unfortunately passed away in 1986 and Steve began to share duties with his father.   In 1993, upon Peter's retirement Steve became the Proprietor and expanded the business.    Following in her father's footsteps, Steve's daughter Natalie joined the team in 2006.  Like her father, Natalie felt there was something special about family-led businesses and upon Steve's retirement took over the business with the manager Sean Regan.

 
 

Right from the start, the company's reputation was built on reliability and honesty rather than just price.   As we are now servicing and repairing vehicles for the third generation of many of the same families, who became customers and friends all those years ago, we feel this decision was the right one.  

We have an extremely low turnover of staff - our longest standing member of staff, Bruce Bellotte has been with the company for over forty years.  Consequently, many of our customers have come to know our technicians and will often have the same person maintaining their vehicle for the whole time they own it.   This means you get the benefit of decades of local experience and a heritage of excellence, when you need it most.
