Stars Garage is a family run business that has been established for a number of generations, with years of varying experiences and skills. All staff are fully trained and qualified in various fields of motor mechanics, engineering, computer diagnostics and vehicle logistics.
In 1970 Smiths Garage was born. Mr Smith opened a garage in Cardiff Central Bus Station in the Hertz Complex. Not happy with the area, Mr Smith asked his mum if he could use her shop lock up in Harriet Street, Cathays, Cardiff as a garage. He had to get planning permission to use the site for commercial use – it was granted.
The company grew and expanded into Breakdown and Recovery, whereby Mr Smith realised he needed a bigger property and thus he rented a garage complex off Newport Road, Cardiff. The two properties were run side by side which opened up opportunities to work for recovery operator companies such as the AA and the RAC.
In the 1980s, a property in Fanny Street, Cardiff, became available and was purchased with the intentions of the site becoming an MOT station and Bodyshop. Mr Smith gave up the Newport Road site for Fanny Street. In 1995 Mr Smith sold the Harriet Street garage, so as to develop the Fanny Street site.
In 2000, Mr Smith sold up the Fanny Street garage and moved premises to a site in Tremorfa, Cardiff. The business continued to grow and moved premises to our current site which is Unit 6 Dominions Way Trading Estate, Dominions Way, Cardiff CF24 1RF.
