car servicing in Saffron Walden


Established in 1998, Jamie Start began servicing and repairing cars and vans from his father's double garage.

The business rapidly grew and larger premises were needed and subsequently found in Thaxted Road. Jamie's father Paul had a financial interest in Jamie's venture and together a trading name of the business was agreed upon, JPS Motors.

The name was born out of our names: J from Jamie, P from Paul, and S from our surname of Start.  As the business had steadily grown Jamie's cousin Nigel joined the business.


On-Road Recovery in Essex

The administration side of this growing business called for Jamie's father to take a more active role in JPS Motors. In 2007, we moved to Shirehill Industrial Estate to allow us to become an MOT station.

Jason joined the business employed to test vehicles. Paul was now working full time, not only with the administration side of the business, but driving the JPS Motors recovery vehicle and other duties included in the running of JPS Motors.

We have since trained two apprentices and now have a part time administration assistant.

Van Repairs in Saffron Walden

Jamie started his interest in cars at a very early age while in his father's garage helping to repair his dad's stock car. Jamie had flair for all mechanical things and at the age of eight, after instruction, was able to use an arc welder (better than his dad).

Jamie started racing minis at the age of 12 and was stripping and rebuilding his own mini engines ready for racing.

This included stripping down an engine in his bedroom! If you would like further information on any of the services that we can offer at JPS Motors, please call us today

What Our Customers Say

"Thank you for the excellent care and service regarding the Fiat car my sister-in-law brought in. The one with the faulty sump. When everything goes smoothly, providing good service is easy. When there are problems is when you find out whether a garage really cares and goes the extra mile to provide the best service possible in the circumstances. The courtesy car and way in which you guys handled the situation is very much appreciated. I will be recommending you to friends, colleagues and family and you can use this message in any way that helps." Ian Philip 17.08.2015
