Leziate Drove Garage Ltd was started in 1985 by the current owner Chris Spragg. The business was established in Grimston from a small, pre-fabricated building behind Chris’s parents' house
The building housed a four-post ramp and some basic equipment. In the early days, car sills and chassiss were regularly welded and repaired for the MOT test.
Chris’s main work was servicing and MOT repairs.
A lot of time was spent taking customers' cars on their behalf for the MOT test and re-test after repair. As more and more customers were bringing their cars to Chris for MOT checks, Chris decided that he needed somewhere to carry out MOT testing himself.
In 1995, Leziate Drove Petrol Station (which stood empty) came up for sale and was bought.
Eventually, in 1999, planning permission was granted to build an MOT test station and repair shop. Building started in June 2000 and the new garage opened in January 2001.
As before, the business continued to grow, with another extension and MOT bay built in 2008.
The business has moved on from the small garage with one ramp to a large garage with seven ramps, one pit, two MOT bays and eight full time staff. We now carry out in excess of 3,000 MOTs a year.
All members of staff are regularly sent on training courses to keep up-to-date with the ever-changing modern car. Our parts suppliers arrange factory visits so our staff get an insight into how the parts we fit are made and tested.
All of this makes Chris Spragg’s Leziate Drove Garage a professional independent garage.
