How we started

Beaver Garages was originally established in 1981 with Richard working on his own from the boot of his car. A small lock-up at the Vennland Centre was the first premises, followed by a move to a larger premises in Quirke Street, then in 1986 a move to the present day premises saw the establishment of the good name and reputation of Richard Beaver Garage.

Good working practises saw the business grow and expansion was the inevitable next move. At the end of 1998 Beaver Autocare was established with the purchase of Market Street Watchet. Further expansion took place in October 2001 with the purchase of the former VW garage on the industrial park in Minehead.

We offer a complimentary Vehicle Health Check with every service at any of our branches.

What is a Vehicle Health Check?

A Vehicle Health Check (VHC) (also referred to as a visual health check or electronic health check) is a complimentary check of your car’s components, carried out by a skilled technician.

A ‘traffic light system’ is used on each of the different check points to report whether your vehicle is:

Green: Safe and good to go

Amber: Recommended work is advised but not urgent

Red: Requires urgent attention

No work will be done on your vehicle without first asking for your permission – the VHC is there to simply check the state of your car and provide you with relevant advice.
