About Us...

Family run friendly garage.

William Rutter Motor Services was established in 1985 in Brunel Road, Bedford. Bill started out as a ‘one man band’, and soon after was joined by Ian Jones. We expanded into our current premises in Hammond Road in 1988. Bill and Ian started out as Ford trained technicians and over the years have gained vast experience and knowledge of most makes of cars. We also went on to become an MOT test station in 1992. We have built up the business by word of mouth recommendations, in fact many people are probably unaware we are tucked away in Hammond Road!

From the friendly welcome, to picking up the car is always a pleasure (except the spending money bit). Requirements are always explained clearly without jargon and I always feel like the car is in safe and honest hands. Trust is a hard thing to come by with garages, but there are still some diamonds in the rough, and W.R.M.S is one of them.
