Founded in 1979 by Arthur and Millie Dowley, we are celebrating our 40th anniversary in 2019. Dowleys retains strong family connections with Arthur and Millie's son, Richard and his wife Elizabeth now running the business. Their other son Jourdin is also involved having completed an apprenticeship in 2012. He is now a fully qualified MOT Tester and Isuzu Master Tech.
Orginally, Dowleys was solely a workshop based business; however, having relocated from the Alvescot Road site, we decided to undertake used car sales, alongside our usual workshop business. This has proved to be a successful move, so we decided to continue our growth and were delighted when we were appointed an official Great Wall franchise dealer in 2012. Most recently, Dowleys became an Isuzu dealer in 2016 and subsequently received the New Dealer of the Year Award.
We are hugely committed to customer satisfaction and have introduced a wide range of service options and workshop offers to suit not only the needs of our customer’s vehicles but the needs of their pockets too!!
We are a member of the RMI (Retail Motor Industry)’s Trust My Garage Scheme and are willingly bound by the promise to deliver 100% satisfaction to our customers.
We thank all our customers for their continued support and look forward to providing an ongoing, outstanding service to you all, as well as welcoming new customers along the way.

"I took my Pembleton 3wheeler in to have a petrol leak investigated. The mechanic was most helpful and the receptionist simply charming. Whilst the leak was fixed at my home I will certainly take the car back to Dowleys for an MOT when due. It was a pleasure visiting them."
