About us

We are a family owned and run business that was started over 70 years ago.

Although there have been many changes to the premises in all those years, we proudly continue to observe old fashioned values for service.

We were Toyota Dealers for over 28 years before changing to Daihatsu in 2003. Perodua was added in 2010.

Our commitment to giving value for money, and attention to detail, ensures repeat business and recommendations.

You won't find a friendlier welcome anywhere. 

Probably Newton Abbot's friendliest garage

In 1939 Highweek Garage was opened in the village of Highweek, Newton Abbot. Highweek Garage initially opened as a petrol filling station and car repair workshop, the service department growing over the years to include car and light commercial vehicle servicing, MOT testing, air-conditioning service and repair, four wheel wheel alignment measuring, clutch, brake and exhaust repair, and more recently, minor body work and paint repair.

The buisness grew with the introduction of used car sales and later, new car sales.

In 1973, Highweek Garage became Toyota Dealers and remained dealers for over 28 years. Toyota's compact car division Daihatsu, were recruiting for a dealer in the South Devon area in 2003 and Highweek Garage was appointed in December of that year. Unfortunately, Daihatsu ceased to export vehicles into the UK in 2009 and so Highweek Garage took on the Perodua Franchise, Perodua helping to fill the void left by Daihatsu as the Perodua Myvi is the Malaysian equivalent of the Daihatsu Sirion. The Perodua Myvi has proven to be excellent value for money and extremely reliable. The Perodua Myvi has also become a popular choice for many drivers on the Motability Scheme, being compact but roomy, and easy to get in and out of. 

For car servicing, repairs and MOT in Newton Abbot, look no further than Highweek Garage.

Highweek Garage has a well equipped workshop and offers, all makes servicing, repair, clutch, brake and exhaust replacement, four wheel alignment measuring, diagnostics and tuning, air-conditioning service, re-gas and repair, and has recently invested in equipment and training to enable the repair of minor bodywork including, scuffs, dents, blemishes and headlamp resurfacing.

Both the workshop and body repair centre are kept busy and can often offer the free use of a courtesy car to keep you mobile. We are always happy to give you an estimate.

Highweek Garage is truly a family business. It was founded by the late Jack Hutchings, grew under his son, the late Derek Hutchings, and continues under the direction of Derek's two daughters, Sue and Anne. Through their leadership, Highweek Garage continues to have an enviable reputation for friendly and reliable service. Highweek Garage is deservedly known as Newton Abbot's friendliest garage.
