Garages Used by our Members
Please note that the Gloucestershire MG Owners club is listing these businesses as they have been proven as either good suppliers or services as measured by members of the club. The idea of this page is not to list suppliers recommended by the club but just to show where members have in the past received good service.
There are many members in the club that have a pool of knowledge about local businesses and experiences with their cars. Although the list below is NOT recommendations it does reflect that pooled knowledge. Anyone wishing to use this list should use it as a start point and make their own decisions. The club will not be held liable for any issues arising from their use.
Having said that, individual members have had good experiences with these below.
Nigel Scotford Ltd, Units 1 & 2, Station Road, South Woodchester, Stroud, GL5 5EQ. Tel: 01453 873787
Nigel carries out MOTs for the Club for the heavily discounted price of £35.00. He will also offer Club Members a discount on parts and labour”. It might also help to include some directions…”Take the turning, signposted South Woodchester, that is almost opposite Dennis Brown’s wood yard on the A46 south of Stroud. After 50 metres, turn left into the an industrial estate. Go past a garage on the right and drive right to the end and turn left around the end of the industrial units. Nigel Scotford’s is the first unit on the left”.
The seat frame snapped on the B, I called into B.P Motor Body Builders, The Runnings, Runnings Road, Cheltenham, GL51 9NJ 01242 245698 and asked if they would be prepared to take such a small job on, without hesitation the proprietor Lee Kedward said that he would do the job himself. On my return he had not only welded it but painted it as well.
Lee has done a great job of rust removal on my MGB. While this was relatively straight forward matching the colour was not and Lee spent much time ensuring a good match could be achieved before starting the work. Lee has also adjusted, painted and fitted a new valance for my car. All the work was done efficiently and with care, the car was kept inside and looked after. Very happy to recommend Lee and BP Motors in Cheltenham who last worked on my car in November 2012.

Hoods & Upholstery
Mark at Jacob Engineering helped me greatly with my car not long after I had bought it. His experience and knowledge of the MGB and a feeling that he cares about the heritage and value of original machinery is reassuring. Mark guided me as he adapted the car for basic use at Prescott and he did so in a way that would not modernise it in anyway. I value Marks opinion and recommend him to anyone interested in historic racing cars. Mark last worked on my car in the summer of 2012.
Tim Brock February 2013
Moss-Europe (Have most parts (inc washers nuts & bolts) on the shelf but can get within 3 days)
Andy Jennings Second Hand Spares (Had the parts I needed (no longer available as new) and posted them next day at very reasonable price)
Tel: 01489 790611
As far as the garage question is concerned, I would wholeheartedly recommend A E Wilcox in Wickwar as below:
A E Wilcox & Son Ltd
A E Wilcox (John (Service) and Tim (Sales)) were ex MGR dealers and although they now have a Citroen and Daihatsu franchise continue to offer an outstanding level of service to any and all MGR cars. The have an excellent reputation within MGF and Z series circles and were one of the 'Division One' dealers of MGR. They have many contacts within the world of MG and still seem to be able to source virtually any part. Their reputation is such that other dealers and workshops will take cars to Wilcox when they have been unable to diagnose or effect repairs themselves.
From a personal perspective, a persistent overheating issue (but only when driving, not when stationary) with my MGTF following a head gasket repair earlier this year proved extremely problematic. Wilcox's didn't give up on the car and although it eventually took six weeks to resolve, the car is now running like a dream and hasn't missed a beat since.
They looked after my original MGF, my ZS180 and now my MGTF. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for work on any modern MG (noting that they also have their own bodyshop).
Hope this helps.
