John Woods Motorcare Ltd

“We take care of everything — brakes, oil changes, carburettor tuning — in fact, all the care your Classic Car needs.”


John Woods completed a full apprenticeship with Lindop Brothers Toyota, Chester, before working his way up to Workshop Foreman.

He left Lindop Brothers in 1986 and joined Bakers MOT as Workshop Technician alongside Dave Baker.


John started John Woods Motorcare as a sole trader, starting out doing mechanical jobs from the boot of his car on peoples drives. After having various workshop premises over the years John ended up in a workshop on Mollington Grange, Chester for over 20 years. John’s son Adam joined his Dad full time in 2010 after completing his Mechanical Engineering qualifications at a local college.


After outgrowing the premises in Chester, John sought advice and turned John Woods Motorcare into a limited company and arranged to move the business to larger premises in Mold, North Wales.

The business continues to thrive in its’ new location.
