QB MOTOR SERVICES

Based in Southend on Sea Essex, QB Motor Services was established in 1982 by Jim Quinton and Keith Bishop.  It is now run by Keith’s son Paul who continues to offer high quality work at a reasonable cost.  With a specialist knowledge of Peugeot and an on-going passion for Land Rovers, in addition to wide experience of other makes we are confident to offer our services to maintain your family car, weekend fun car or work van.

QB Motors are happy to provide full servicing and repairs to most makes of car and light commercial vehicles and when MOT time comes round we will book your car in with our local MOT station and then check it over before submitting it for the test. Thus avoiding any retest fees where ever possible.

" I have used QB for both, my own and my wife's car for many years. I have always found them to be very helpful and efficient. Although I am no expert, their charges always seem to me to be reasonable and the work to be undertaken is always carefully explained without blinding me with technical information. On several occasions they have gone above and beyond what you would think of as 'normal' service from a garage. 18/08/11 " - ,
