big enough to cope, small enough to care

MOTs, Servicing and Tyres based in Hawkinge, Folkestone

Our History

Elham Motors Ltd t/a Hawkinge Vehicle Services is a small independent family business that was started by John and Pat Hogben over 50 years ago. They quickly established a reputation for providing a personal caring quality service at good value for money to the local community. In John’s words “We are big enough to cope and small enough to care”

Today, although John is still involved in the business, it is managed on a day-to-day basis by his son-in-law Kevin Millar. Customer satisfaction still comes first, and the business thrives, supported by a local loyal customer base.

The business operates from a well-equipped modern workshop in Hawkinge, Folkestone.
