Central Motors is a rural independent, family run MOT test station, repair garage & car sales with the same owners since 1967. We are situated in the Tamar Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, at the western edge of St Ann's Chapel Gunnislake on the A390 Tavistock to Callington road (Sat Nav = PL18 9HP).

We offer a professional high standard of service. Our friendly staff will give helpful advice and free estimates.

We are a member of AutoCare a network of independent service and repair garages throughout the UK.

All garages are carefully selected. They are committed to following the AutoCare charter which meets the Trading Standards approved code of practice.

Our garage is less expensive than the franchised dealer networks, whilst still servicing to the manufacturers specification and fitting Original Equipment or match quality replacement parts. Under this legislation you will not invalidate your warranty by taking your vehicle to an AutoCare garage.

AutoCare garages also offer experienced and fully trained and qualified technicians to work on your vehicle.

Please leave a review at


The Right2Choose is quite literal in its meaning. Motorists have the Right2Choose an independent qualified garage to get a car service or MOT. You are not obliged as a condition of the vehicle warranty to have the vehicle checked or serviced by a franchised dealer.Under European Union competition law servicing, etc. can be carried out by an independent garage as long as that garage uses manufacturer approved parts and correctly follows the manufacturers service schedule. Every AutoCare garage uses OE parts manufacturer approved parts when repairing vehicles.

Air conditioning is not only to keep you cool in summer it also demists your car a lot quicker in winter time, but they do need regular servicing which is often overlooked & not included in the routine vehicle service. We recommend that the system is re-charged with refrigerant gas & oil every two years as every system looses a percentage of gas each year. We can carry out this service to bring your air conditioning back to its full potential.

Thank you for the excellent customer service, unfortunately we are moving away & finding a garage with the same courteous service will be a big challenge

I would never go anywhere else for repairs or servicing, or MOT's. Central Motors go the extra mile time after time. They have also used their expertise to help me keep old cars on the road at a competitive price, and I estimate they have saved me thousands over the years. In fact, I estimate they have saved me approx 1,000 over the past 2 years, and this is on a car over 10 years old. If you live locally, you really should give them a try.

Thank You Team.

What a service! Thank you for fixing my car in hours!!

( And thank you, F D for the biscuits !)


We bought the car from this garage feeling we were taking a stab in the dark as we knew nothing about cars or about this garage.Shortly after purchase a warning light came up We contacted the garage and were overwhelmed by their response nothing was to much trouble the problem was sorted and we were sent on our way with our petrol tank topped up and the toll money for the bridge.Dean and Glen you are a credit to the business.

They have looked after our car for now eight years after moving to the
area. After 52 years of driving and experiences of garages, I can say without
reservation that this business has provided the best overall quality service we
have ever had. Very highly recommended

Whenever we need to phone or contact Central, they are always more than helpful, try their best to help and are always friendly yet professional. We always feel that they are honest and thorough, and they never go ahead with anything before checking with us and doing their best to describe problems. They offer a prompt, door to door service and we are always left with the feeling of confidence that it has been a job done well.
