The family run business of Eastbourne Tyre Co Ltd was started in 1925 by Nelson Ashby, based on the values of service and workmanship. Nearly 100 years on it is now run by Nelson’s great grandson and 4th generation in the firm, Matt.

Matt has kept the values started by his great grandfather ensuring that ETC Auto Centre is known for transparency, honesty and quality.

We are a proud member of The Motor Ombudsman accreditation scheme and are accredited to the CTSI-approved Service and Repair, Code of Practice ensuring we operate to the highest standards of service and offering peace of mind for customers.

The team at ETC Auto Centre are happy to offer advice and explain any part of the process. So if you have any questions or worries feel free to speak to us today.

Eastbourne Tyre Co Ltd, Fort Road has been in the town since 1925, originally as a tyre retailer and then adding more services over the years such as manufacturing batteries and becoming the fast fit centre that you will find today.

In 2015 we started vehicle servicing, repairs and MOT testing and in November 2022 we opened up our new workshop here on Stansted Road.  This is when we incorporated ETC Auto Centre.

As a mechanical garage we are equipped with all the specialist tools and knowledge to tackle almost any problem that you may have with your car or van whether it’s a simple tyre pressure check or a replacement engine!
