about victoria garage


Welcome to Victoria Garage

Victoria Garage, together with Victoria Hire, has been a thriving local business for 60 years, proudly serving customers in Whitstable, Canterbury, Herne Bay and the local area.  Established in 1954, Victoria Garage is truly one of the longest running companies in Whitstable and certainly the oldest garage business still in operation today.  Originally started by Vye Lancaster

and her partner Alex, the original garage stood in the gardens of the Bear & Key Hotel. It changed hands once more before Edward Bollen senior bought the business in 1963.  The original garage in Regent Street was finally vacated in 2004 when the company moved to modern, purpose built premises on the Joseph Wilson Industrial Estate, where along with Victoria Hire,

they have been proudly growing ever since. The business is now run by Edward Bollen jnr along with a large team of mechanics,

tyre fitters and administrative staff who all share the companies passion for providing the best customer service in the area.
