A HISTORY OF TISBURY MOTORS
The company has been sited in the heart of Tisbury since approximately 1916, serving Tisbury and the surrounding
community with all its motoring needs including fuel. Tisbury Motors is one of the last remaining garages with a
attended service for fuel.
The garage has traded under various names over the years, two of the longer serving names have been F.W. Carter and
son (40’s and 50’s) it then became Wells Motor Works (owned by David Well’s in the 60’s early 70’s) then it became
known as Tisbury motors (mid 70’s to the present day).
There exists a long standing connection between Tisbury Motors and local motor racing in various forms and
currently sponsors a local team involved in hill climbing. (Predominately Gurstan)
The Current owners Mark and Elaine Carter (no relatives of F.W.Carter) have a long history within the motor trade,
with Mark having worked within the franchised network and the independent network, then running his own business in
South West London.

In early 1999 Mark and Elaine decided to move out of the rat race and bring their then young children in a more
relaxed environment, and so came to Tisbury late that year, they have since then built upon the companies
fundamental strengths and added some modern working practices and technologies to make Tisbury Motors a “true” one
stop shop for all your motoring needs.
Mark and Elaine are very proud to add their son Matthew to the workforce (he has just qualified as a technician)
making this a truly family business.
