Welcome to the world of Northgate

Welcome to the Northgate Garage Group. The Group is owned by the Hinkins family and we have been serving our customers motoring needs since 1963.

Between 2014 and 2016 we refurbished two of our dealerships and built a brand new facility in Vauxhall Road, Canterbury. This enabled us to accommodate all of our current brands in the City in relaxed, spacious showrooms that sit alongside each other on a total site area of almost two acres. We now have, full main dealer status for three brands in Canterbury and Whitstable. Fiat, Abarth, Fiat Professional, Harbour Garage. We also have the service franchises for Jeep and Alfa Romeo.

To experience our Group, please click on the brand logos above which will direct you to that specific franchise.

At Northgate car and van dealerships in Kent we understand that you want excellent service and complete confidence, but not at any cost.  That is why all our deals are priced to be the most competitive in the market place.  If you think that you have found a better price elsewhere let us know. Explore the rest of our site and make an enquiry today. Alternatively you could visit one of our new and used car dealerships in Kent and arrange to test drive your chosen car.

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 with. 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.

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