Situated in the West Sussex village of Cuckfield Barkers Garage was established in 1998 by David Barker. Having worked at these premises since 1987 David had the opportunity to take over from the existing owner and start up his own business. Since 1998 having started on his own, David decided to employ a new member of staff and in 1999 he was joined by Liam, who was a professional panel beater thus giving the business a new service to provide a bodyshop facility. In 2005 it was decided to offer an apprenticeship and David and Liam were joined by Daryl, who is now in his 3rd year of apprenticeship. All work carried out at Barkers Garage is the result of personal recommendations of existing customers.
