Testimonials from clients of Barry’s Garage telling it how it is



Just had my wife’s car valeted by Barry and what an awesome job! Attention to detail is outstanding and to quote my wife … “Wow! this is cleaner than the day I bought it!” If you love your vehicle let this man do it and you will not be disappointed


“Barry stored my BMW for four years while I was overseas – Barry arranged axle stands and a trickle charger in advance.  Barry ran the car once a month, groomed the car when required, and prepared it for the road for my visits home.  This included arranging trips to the mechanic for WoFs.  Barry also assisted with showing the car to prospective buyers when it was advertised for sale.  I knew that Barry was treating the car as his own, and I had immense trust and faith in him and his storage site.  Barry was fantastic over this four year period, and I would not hesitate to recommend him for car storage and related-needs.  Thanks again!”



“Needing storage for a unique car, some 6 metres long, I really struck gold securing space at Barry’s Garage. Secure, 24hr access within easy reach has allowed peace of mind.

When it came to local knowledge for speciality maintenance Barry was able to leverage his extensive network finding me a fantastic mechanic near by.

His valet service brought some tired paint work to life and has really transformed my vehicle. Great service and a great find.”

Glen Bearman, Lincoln Continental owner.


“I have stored my car at Barry’s Garage in Johnsonville for a year or two now, and have been very happy with the level of service and professionalism. Security is very important to me, so it was refreshing to see it taken so seriously.

Will definitely use the services of Barry’s Garage in the future.”

‘I would highly recommend anybody to have their pride and joy taken care of by Barry, from Barrys Garage, he has been looking after my cars and motorcycles for over six years now.

He grooms them, organises servicing and warrants, also has many contacts in the car and bike industry, plus a vast knowledge of vehicles, which has been invaluable for all of those tricky little problems and questions, that occur from time to time.

I have known Barry for over 15 years, originally as a customer at Shelly BMW, he is very professional, reliable and discreet, he has also helped with the purchase of several of my vehicles”.

I have had a look at your website. I even have on YouTube Autoglym as one of my favorites. Forever keen to see and hear of tips and other peoples / companies theories on how to use their product.

Yes I am getting the Autoglym thing going on. Can’t believe how easy the stuff is to use. Out with the old and in with the new.

To be fair I have run with the mainstream products, Mothers & Meguiars etc, and if nothing else I have now come to the realization that I have too many products, that half of will probably have the same results, but what I never found is that if I use one product it will not necessarily be an ideal thing to use another as well. And, they are much too hard work compared to even just the one product of Autoglym I have.



I have known Barry for a couple of years now and he is a thoroughly reliable and trustworthy person who continually surprises me with the depth of knowledge he has about cars and bikes.

Barry has valeted my car with Autoglym and I now use Autoglym myself as I was so impressed. I was using Meguiars before, but I have found that Autoglym is just better on all fronts – easy to use, long lasting, finish quality and my car has a lovely deep wet look when polished and protected.
