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!
