About Us – Woking

Brothers Richard and Michael Field started the business in 1981.

But our heritage goes back even further through our grandfather to the years after the First World War, when he built a business in motor parts supply.

We started working from a small workshop in Guildford, belonging to our grandfather. Called appropriately ‘Field Brothers’ we began servicing and repairs cars, first for family and friends but soon growing to offer our services to a much wider audience.

The business relocated to St Johns in Woking and extra staff members added to cope with the increasing work. The ethos of the business was of a ‘family run’ (wives and parents helped!) friendly, trustworthy company who wanted to treat customers as you would a friend. Looking after not just their car but them as well. It is still our ethos to this day.

In 1991 the business moved to larger, more central premises in Goldsworth Road. It was here that the business really took off, with a change in name to ‘Field’s Car Centre’ to reflect the growing nature of the business.

After extensive refurbishing, a six bay workshop with an MOT Station was up and running. Further new staff joined as the business grew. In July 1995 our achievements were recognized by winning the Autotrade ‘Independent Garage Of The Year’ Award and in 2005 runners up in the MotorTrader ‘Garage of the Year’ and ‘Excellence in Customer Care’ award. –Our customer service, attention to detail, hard work and the dedication of staff recognised by these awards.

Today we have a team of 14 full and part time staff. They include specialist diagnostic technicians, mechanics, mot testers and oversight staff.

The workshop is run by Chris Maple, who joined FCC in 1996 as an apprentice, working his way up the chain of command. Chris is an expert on diagnostic fault finding. He now oversees all such work here on fault location on your car.

The office and administration has been very ably run by Lynne Newman since 1997.

Your cars passage through the day is overseen by either Steve Forbes (Since 2001) or recent addition Gary Churcher, who has over 26 years experience in the motor trade.

Keith Harris is our senior Mot tester and celebrates nearly 25 years with us, some achievement! Our workshop team have mostly been with us for many years. We must be doing something right to earn their long service. We value each one and are proud of their commitment to us and more importantly to you and your car.

We appreciate the part many of our customers have made in supporting us from our very early days as a fledgling business. The support we receive in gratitude and thanks from so many loyal customers is something we appreciate and value more than we can say.
