We are a family-run business, dedicated to providing the finest quality customer service and highest standard of auto repair and service.

From Milk Floats to Garages in Downton
Our garage service was founded in 1996 by Stephen Andrews, who began his trade years repairing milk floats while working for a local dairy.
After working for a number of years as a car mechanic, Stephen started Downton Service Station as his own business. He later brought in two more qualified family members, including his son, Jack, who now operates The Garage Milford-on-Sea, to work beside him. Together, they provide high-quality MOT’s, services and repairs to anyone in the local area.
