One of Wisbech's oldest and most popular garages is embarking on an exciting journey into the world of fast fit service for the first time, after joining the HiQ network.

J S Holmes Ltd, a Nissan and Ford approved dealer on High Road Wisbech with 55 years' experience, has added the final piece to his jigsaw with the addition of a comprehensive car service.

HiQ Wisbech, which will operate alongside the Nissan and Ford dealership, has been taken on by new franchisee Martin Holmes - one of three generations still involved in the business today.

Martin said: "It is great for us to be linked to a national brand, giving us the opportunity to be competitive in the market.

"We have invested heavily in offering motorists a wide ranging stock of tyres as well as providing full mechanical services including MOTs.

"Over the years we have established a very loyal customer base and we hope that by adding to our list of services, we can meet every motorists' needs."

Kelvin Taylor, HiQ's regional franchise manager said: "This is an important development for us at HiQ.

"It is vital that we continue to grow as a network and this latest opening strengthens our presence in the region and ultimately, across the UK."

HiQ Wisbech is the latest of over 150 centres to join the network and is currently offering free tyre, battery and vehicle health checks.
