From its humble beginnings in 1968, Graham Ratcliff embarked on his journey of building his business to what it has become today. Graham’s purchase and subsequent love affair with Jaguars in the mid ’70’s led to a change in the business and gradual shift into specialising in Jaguar service and repairs. His commitment to quality workmanship and good old fashioned service saw the business grow and establish itself as a Jaguar specialist, attracting customers from Greater Melbourne, regional Victoria and interstate.
In 2002 Graham Ratcliff retired his legacy over to Herb Schobben (one of the founders of Jag Prestige Spares), whilst retaining fantastic existing master technicians and expanding the team with young, innovative technicians with diesel and cutting-edge diagnostic qualifications. In the last decade, the workshop has expanded into other British marques and significant investment in business presentation, staff training, tools and equipment, diagnostic and information technologies and best practices.
With thousands of happy customers over the years, it’s no wonder people travel from far and wide to service their new and classic British vehicles with us. Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what our customers have to say…
Great people and service.
I would never take my Jag's to anyone else! In fact I travel across from the Mornington Peninsula to take my Jag's here.

The Team at J&BPS are friendly, thorough and experts in their field. I have entrusted them with my vehicles for the last 5 years and I could not be happier. Herb and the Team have created a family friendly business, built on trust, professionalism and quality.

I've been servicing here for the past 15 years and would not think of going anywhere else. Thoroughly recommend them without hesitation...they service non-jags with the same attention to detail.
Mike CollinsJaguar XJ
My wife and I have been Jaguar enthusiasts for almost 40 years, and we’ve been having our cars serviced by Herb and the team for 15 of those. It is a long way from where we live but they offer friendly, affordable and efficient service for all our cars (both old and new) and we wouldn’t go anywhere else.
