Our History

Central Motor Service Ltd is a 4th generation family business that was originally founded in Kericho under the name of Central Garage in 1946. We eventually moved to Nairobi in 1977 where we have been dealers for DT Dobie, CMC, Simba-Colt and Toyota Kenya.


In 1996, we were appointed the main franchise holders for Citroen vehicles for Kenya. This benefitted us with international management skills and standards as well as technical expertise to cater for customers’ every need regarding their vehicle.


After more than 65 years in the motor industry, CMS has expanded its operations to cater for all services needed for a vehicle and continues to provide a good, professional service for all its customers.
