Based on the Dorset Hampshire Boarder.
JMG Porsche are located in Ferndown, on the edge of the New Forrest and the boarder between Dorset and Hampshire. Convenient for customers from Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire, West Sussex, Surrey and further afield.
Just between Southampton and Bournemouth, 30 minutes from Winchester, and only an hour from London, JMG Porsche have always benefited from a wide customer base, with customers visiting from as far afield as eastern Europe and Asia Minor!
While your Porsche is serviced or repaired in Ferndown you will also be able to take advantage of a number of local attractions including the national motor museum at Beaulieu, Kingston Lacey House, Christchurch Priory or castle ruins, Bovington tank museum, the beaches at Sandbanks or Bournemouth, Matchums Go-Karting, shopping in Bournemouth, Ringwood, Poole, Christchurch or Ferndown itself. Or why not treat yourself to a fixed wing or helicopter trial flying lesson at nearby Bournemouth airport? All of this is achievable within a short drive away in our pre booked loan car, or with discounted taxi services. Alternatively some customers turn their Porsche maintenance requirements into a mini holiday with so much to do in the local area and a multitude of excellent local hotels and B&B's.
When selecting our workshop location, we were careful to choose somewhere with nationwide train connections, as 50% of our customers visit from all over the UK to use our services. Luckily we were able to find suitable workshops within a short taxi ride of Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole train stations.

JMG Porsche has always had visitors from all over the world, including especially Europe. Amazingly customers have bought their cars to us from Athens, Belgium, Germany and Switzland, which is quite common. Therefore Airport links to JMG have always been important. Only a short taxi ride from Bournemouth International Airport, or with great rail links to Southampton Airport, JMG is well served from the air as well as from the road or rail.
From the M3 - Continue on the M3 heading south, when it splits into the M27 East and M27 West, follow the M27 West, signposted for Bournemouth. Keep on the M27, it will eventually turn into the A31, stay on this road and follow the signs for Ferndown and Ferndown Industrial estate. Once on the estate you can not miss us.
From the New Forrest - Follow signposts for Ringwood and then for Ferndown Industrial estate. Once on the estate you can not miss our building!
From the west - Typically it is easier to follow signs for Poole, then Wimborne, then Ferndown at which point you should see the signs for Ferndown Industrial estate. As Dorset's largest industrial area and one of the largest industrial areas in the UK, you will not be able to miss it. Being situated on the main road through the middle of the estate you really can not miss us.
