Robinson Kimbolton is a local, family-run company established in 1927 by my grandfather, Stanley Robinson. He opened Robinson's Garage on the corner of the present site, repairing cars and cycles. As the business developed, a coach and taxi were added, and in 1960 we extended the garage to include a showroom and coach repair workshop. 

The dealership continued to thrive, and the coach business grew. Then in 2014, we opened Robinson's Budgens of Kimbolton, which provides groceries and convenience goods for the surrounding villages and local area, and today our garage and coaches continue to deliver quality service. We have a long history of providing individuals with the transport, value and expertise they need to fulfil their travelling needs.
