Welcome to the world of Northgate

The Hinkins family have been serving the motoring needs of Kent for over fifty years. In fact, in 1962 I used to take my father’s lunch down on a Sunday and, whilst he ate it, I would work the single, pump up and gravity petrol pump for him.

Northgate Locations

From a string of fuel stations we gradually turned our attention to the retail and maintenance of both new and used cars and vans. We now represent eleven brands across five locations and, over the past eighteen months have refurbished two of our dealerships and built a brand new facility in Chelsea Road, Canterbury.

The core of our success in this highly competitive market place is our long serving staff and their absolute commitment to customer service. We also ensure our staff are expertly trained in all new models, systems and technological advancements for all the manufacturers we work for. We have dedicated staff assigned to each manufacturer.

We won’t do any work on your vehicle without first providing a quotation inclusive of labour, parts and VAT and, in this competitive world our pencils remain the sharpest out there.

Latterly we have introduced sales centres within our dealerships specialising in almost new cars direct from the manufacturers and these complement our broad selection of used vehicles. Our dedicated used car and van centre in Sturry Road, Canterbury stocks up to 100 vehicles catering for all tastes and pockets.

Now please go on to explore our dedicated pages for each location and brand.
