Highland Motors were established in 2007 and is owned and run by John Mackenzie & Steve Smith.
John's family have been running garages on Skye since 1948 and as a young lad John helped his dad in the family garage in Uig. John went to work for Portree Coachworks where he served his apprenticeship. He went on to become the Workshop Foreman and it is also where he met Steve prior to them setting up Highland Motors.
After serving 12 years in the RAF Steve went on to work as an accountant. He moved to Skye in 2004 and worked at Portree Coachworks.
As a garage Highland Motors take pride in our customer care. It is our aim to get things right first time and at a fair price. We have invested heavily in both training for our staff and also in equipment to enable them to deliver a top quality service. As part of this process we have been certified by the AA and had one of the best scores ever on a site assessment. Our staff are registered with the Vauxhall Academy and are on a continuous training program to ensure that their knowledge of new vehicles and technologies is up to date. Technicians, once qualified, are independently tested and certified by the IMI every 3 years. We are also accredited by the Motor Ombudsman and have signed up to their code of practice.
We hope that this along with our great reception team gives customers confidence that their vehicle is in safe hands. We understand just how important your car is when you live on Skye and we will always go that extra mile to keep you mobile.
