The Vehicle Workshop

Serving Herne Bay, Canterbury, Margate, Faversham and wider Kent

The Vehicle Workshop has been providing top-quality, honest, and reliable auto repairs and services since 2013. Located in Herne Bay, but serving the surrounding areas of Canterbury, Margate, Faversham and wider Kent, we’re a local, family-run business that holds our customers at the heart of everything we do. We provide excellent care, honest advice, and simple service every customer looks for in a garage and seek to reunite you with your vehicle as efficiently and painlessly as possible. With this in mind, we offer a local collection and drop off your vehicle within 5 miles of the garage. We can also arrange a recovery service within the surrounding local areas of our workshop.

So, what do we do?

We work with all makes and models of vehicles, including fuel, hybrid and electric, and specialising in both Ford and Toyota. We are specialists in all aspects of vehicle maintenance and repairs, including but not limited to servicing, MOT testing, clutches, exhausts, timing belts, bulbs, diagnostics, bulbs, wipers, wheel bearings, air-con, and coolant changes.

The Vehicle Workshop welcomes both company cars and fleet vehicles. Whatever your needs and vehicle, we are on hand to offer help and advice, every step of the way.

Electric and hybrid vehicles

We are excited to announce the opening of our EV Workshop, offering a wide range of specialist services on both Hybrid and Electric vehicles, from diagnostics to air conditioning, servicing to high voltage component repair. For more information, head to our EV workshop page here.

Value for money

We pride ourselves on offering real value for money, with no hidden charges to worry about and no jargon to mislead or confuse you. We keep all the old, removed parts from your vehicle for your inspection and we never do any work unless authorised by you first. We will even fit your supplied parts if it’s easier for you. Call us with your best quote and we will do our best to beat it.

We aim to achieve complete customer satisfaction on every vehicle repair carried out. For a better insight into how we can help you, get in touch with us today.

COVID safe

Here at the Vehicle Workshop, we’re doing as much as we can to keep our customers and ourselves safe. Both of our mechanics are now fully vaccinated and are taking NHS lateral flow tests fortnightly, and we’re posting the results on our Facebook page for your reassurance. Hand sanitiser is freely available at the garage; we’re cleaning all surfaces regularly and we ask you to check in on the NHS app via our business QR code upon arrival. We also ask all customers to wear masks (unless exempt). If you have any questions or worries, please do not hesitate to contact us – we’ll be happy to help.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

“Fantastic Service. Fantastic Price. Quick Job. Great Guy. Great Garage, you would be silly not to accept his quote.”

“Did a great job fitting my rear brakes and front tyres. Work was completed during the agreed time frame. Would definitely recommend and will return in the future.”

“Had such a good experience with this garage, prices were very reasonable! He was a lovely man who consulted me before doing anything that would cost extra and was able to explain it in a way that I could understand (as someone who knows nothing about cars) he was even able to fix something that 3 other garages had failed at! Very impressed, would highly recommend!! Thank you :)”
