About Us

For more than 80 years the Prescott family have provided quality sales and service to their customers both locally and across the Coromandel Peninsula. 

From its commencement in the mid 1930’s operating a bus service to Waihi, a freight carrying and taxi service and a motor repair shop from premises in Hikuai, the family business then became Prescott’s Garages Ltd when the Pauanui Service station was built in 1972.

In 1980 the move was made to take on a tractor franchise initially selling Shibaura and Ebro tractors then, in 1983 and for the next 28 years, becoming a John Deere dealership adding other farm machinery as time went on.

With the redevelopment of the intersection between Hikuai Settlement Road and SH5 in 1996, Prescott’s Garages Ltd relocated to purpose built premises that include a large workshop, full service station and convenience store.

Prescott’s Garages Ltd is now a licenced dealer for Mahindra, Victa and Ferris.  Mahindra is the largest manufacturer of tractors and vehicles by volume in the world while Victa and Ferris are both renowned for their ride on mowers and lawn care equipment. 

Running the business now are third generation family members.  Qualified car and tractor mechanics provide a wide range of services including WOFs, towing and salvage, mechanical services and repairs and tractor and machinery sales and services.
