Quality Used Car Sales in the Isle of Purbeck

Foleys garage was established in 1937 by Mr John Scott Foley. The garage became a Vauxhall agent in the same year, and remained one of the longest established family run Vauxhall dealers in the country until 2004 when Vauxhall motors decided that they no longer needed the smaller dealers anymore.

Mr Foley’s daughter Jocelyn and son in law Stuart came into the business in 1972 and it is now run by the third generation of the family, Steve and David White. We at Foleys believe in good old fashioned customer care and offer outstanding service throughout all aspects of the business.


Following the latest round of restrictions imposed during these unprecedented times, we would like to inform Customers of our situation as of 15th May 2020.


We will continue to sell Diesel and Petrol as usual, and would ask everyone to use the disposable gloves when filling up so as to reduce the risk of cross contamination.

The Spar shop will remain open as this is vital to our community in Harmans Cross. At busy times you may be asked to Queue, and to keep 2 metres from each other as advised by the Government. Your patience in doing so will be much appreciated.

If any of our local customers are concerned about coming to the shop, please give us a call between the hours of 10.30am and 12.30pm Monday to Friday on 01929480097 as we may be able to offer a limited delivery service in our local area. (We can only accept card payments for this service, and there will be no deliveries on Saturday or Sunday)


Updated 15th May: The workshop is fully open for Repairs, MOTs and Servicing.

Please keep looking on Facebook for further updates.
