    See what people are saying..

    “I am very happy with Grimmer Motors and give them a 5 star rating.  I had my car repaired and paid the bill.  A couple of days later I got a call to say I had been accidentally overcharged on a part and to come back for a refund. I don’t think many businesses would do that, and I would never have known so I am very impressed.”  



    I’m a long term Grimmers customer and so is my Mum and brother.  I think Grimmers is the most trusted workshops in all of Hamilton.  I know a few people who come out of Hamilton who come in to go to Grimmers just because they can trust it.  



    “My husband and I are thoroughly impressed with Grimmer Motors.  We bought our car in and had a quote done for $1300 but in the end the bill only came to $800.  We are definitely happy with the service.”

    I’m absolutely happy with Grimmers.  I was given really good advice about how to take better care of my car, and the things to be aware of.  I was told to keep my petrol tank above ¼ full and I feel with just that little tip my car is also running better.  



    “Our pride and joy is our Lancia Fulvia 1.3s Rallye. 1970. We have owned this Italian piece of art since June 2004. Grimmer Motors have looked after her pretty much since day one. As a car fanatic we do not place our cars in any service teams hands.

    Grimmer’s have always gone the little extra’s and not only kept us up to date with service requirements, but given that this lady is rare and a true Classic, gone beyond, by seeking out parts as and when required and taking a personal interest in optimising the end result.

    Our girl is now receiving a full overhaul and we have entrusted this to Grimmer Motors. Engine, gearbox, carburettors etc. etc. are all receiving their expert attention.

    If you have a Classic or any vehicle where more than just plugging it in to diagnose the issue is required then we suggest you contact them.”

    “I found Grimmer Motors service was awesome.”



    “I always get good service. The staff go the extra mile and the costs are reasonable.


    “We have used Grimmer Motors for approximately the last 30 years both for our private and business vehicles. Whenever we have looked at replacing a vehicle we have always had it checked over by Grimmers and have always been given the best of advice.

    Terry Grimmer has always personally been reliable and honest in all our dealings with him and his well trained staff.  We have never in all these years, had a reason to query any of the work done by this firm.

    We have absolutely no problem with recommending Terry and his staff.”

    “I’m definitely going back to Grimmer Motors when my car putts out.  They were awesome.”



    Grimmers is a lovely place to come, we’ve been going there for 30 years.  I like the new improvements, it is much more accessible, nicer and lighter.

    “I have been a satisfied customer of Grimmer Motors for around 35 years.

    During this time they have professionally maintained all of my cars, three of them were second hand cars supplied by them.  I have remained with Grimmer Motors over the years because of their guaranteed workmanship, their reliability, their honesty and their integrity as a family business what has been in existence since 1934.”

    “Grimmer Motors have serviced our vehicles since we made the move to Hamilton in 2003. They have always looked after us, they have an amazing work ethic, and tend to always go the extra mile. An incredibly friendly team, we trust them immensely and won’t look anywhere else for any of our mechanical needs. They make you feel like family, not a number. Thanks team,

    you guys rock!”
