Based in Duns in the Scottish Borders. Mill Garage has nearly 50 years in the motor trade.

The Mill Garage was started by the Horne family in 1974. Set up by Jimmy Horne, a mechanic by trade, when he purchased a bit of land in Duns, Berwickshire. Starting off with an old wooden shed in the corner Jimmy built the business on a reputation for honesty, affordability and excellent workmanship.

Jimmy was joined in the mid 80’s by both his sons making this truly a family business. The business continued to go from strength to strength with both sons now taking over the reins, one son concentrating on the bodyshop side of the business and the other as a mechanic. In the late 90’s Jimmy noticed the growth in campervans and a gap in the market. He subsequently hired a local craftsman to custom build campervans.

For over 20 years this part of the business has created bespoke conversions for many happy customers. Many of them returning for van number 2 or even van number 3 as we continue to offer a bespoke service tailored to our customers’ needs.

With nearly 50 years in the motor trade, Mill Garage (Duns) Ltd is a well established one stop shop for all your motoring needs, still retaining that family feel, personal service and attention to detail. Now the 3rd generation of Horne’s has joined the business and just qualified as a mechanic.


Our experienced team of mechanics are here to look after all your motoring needs. Our workshop can undertake all types of vehicle repairs and servicing. Need your air con recharged?  We've got you covered.


The bodyshop team play a major part in the business, undertaking all types of repairs for customer and insurance work.

Thank you so much to Mike and Mill Garage. I was up for a wedding and I had a belt snap that stopped my power steering (alternator and potentially other essential components like water/cooling). Time was very tight and I had to leave the next day, but Mike took on the job, completed on time, I was surprised at how low the cost was and the overall service was exceptional.I cannot emphasise enough how the help I received really saved my skin, as I was 200 miles away from my regular surroundings, tools etc. I had the pressure of the wedding, an unfamiliar place, combined with this car issue and not knowing if I was going to need to get a hotel (for myself and family members) for a couple days extra to get things fixed, but after my initial call and Mike really going above and beyond to help me, they absolutely came through and as I say, literally saved my skin and got me back down the road.Good luck at your daughters wedding today and take care of yourself.

Got a service and mot. No phone call to say what needs done. They just did the work. Had car for 2 days, saying, waiting on parts when the car was booked in first thing in the morning. Oil replaced as usual with service, but only 2/3 replaced. Had belt done on next visit and explained about oil and service...topped it up and charged me for oil.When I questioned this, they came up with lame excuse.Be vigilant

Waited 3 weeks for van to go in for a starting problem. Get a call today to say there's too much wrong and they haven't got time to do it... so left it it outside for me to collect outside on the road.I said when would they have time and apparently won't ever.I said so what's wrong I.e the list and women says she doesn't know as he hasn't had time to look.What a waste of the time.. looking for the easy work obviouslyWhat a waste of the time service.

Mike and his merry mechanics (good title for a film) always courteous and they are fonts of all knowledge in their trade. We cannot forget Maid Sharon of Duns District....very efficient. Little town feel............big time service!! Thanks again

We have used them for years for various vehicles. So when our son came home as he works away, we took his car there for an MOT. We were asked to collect his car after a week, paid the bill in full which included the MOT.No problems were mentioned on collection of the car.However when we came home from the garage (it was the weekend by now)we could not find the physical MOT certificate in the car. We checked online and it stated the car had failed.My sons previous year MOT still had two weeks and he had to go back to work which is miles away.I called the garage on the Monday morning first thing and was told it was a mistake on their part, the car had passed but the certificate had to be written out with the car on the premises as they had forgotten to do it.Or get the car retested where he is down the country.As my son works far away we decided on a retest. The car had passed right so it should sail through the test.We were wrong, it failed again but it was what it failed with.Rear near side coil spring was broken/fractured. I am no mechanic but surely that should have been picked up ??

These guys were fantastic. Had a rental by other means and whilst in the area had a water issue, these guys were a delight to deal with both in the phone and personally. 1hr late they had us up and running again with flowing fresh water. Top people thank you

If I could I would give them 0. Rough as hell. Pushed the wheelbearing too hard and damaged it. Have to get a new one and get the job done again. Cowboys. Go sweeping streets instead of doing cars
