About Us

Kieron and Jill Macdonald have been the owners of Oxford Garage since 2002. Having been the Managing Director of Massingberd Northallerton Limited for 18 years before opening Oxford Garage, Kieron has over 30 years experience with the Volkswagen, Audi, Seat and Skoda brands. Oxford Garage became an authorised BOSCH Car Service Centre in 2003, making them only the second Centre to open in the UK and today are part of a National Network of 500 BOSCH Car Service Centres.

Kieron has built the business on family-run values, establishing Oxford Garage as a strong, welcoming dealership with face-to-face contact and high levels of customer retention. Priding themselves on that ‘Personal Touch’, they have become a firm member of the village of Hurworth, offering service and repairs on all makes and models to a lot of customers from as far afield as The Scottish Borders.

Jill, Kieron's partner, has many years' experience in the service industry. Having owned several businesses, including a hotel in Keswick, Cumbria, Tea Rooms in Richmond and unique and bespoke sandwich shops in the late nineties, Jill now looks after the accounting side of the business and focuses on Customer Service.

Their favourite cars are naturally Volkswagen Audi, the whole family drives the brand! In Kieron's spare time, when he gets it, himself and Jill love to look after their two Grandchildren and do a spot of gardening.

Kieron Macdonald Junior

Kieron Junior is the Service Advisor at Oxford Garage. Having undertaken his NVQ training in the Workshop for four years, Kieron then progressed to organising the Workshop control systems, liasing with customers on all levels and while on Service Reception, looking after old and new customers alike.
