Our Story

Driving the future since 1892

The current local owners and staff of Curwood’s, could not be prouder to be a part of this incredible story.

Having been established in 1892, we carry on the superb service that has made Curwoods a household name in Jersey. The fleet is simply beautiful, with modern and classic vehicles kept to our excellent standards.

Service is paramount to us. Should you be The King or a Bride on your special day, the Lieutenant Governor of Jersey or a Business Person – we offer the same superb attention to detail, courtesy and good humour.


Curwoods has a rich and interesting past, and we hope future. We are still locally owned and managed and provide a service to the Crown, the Government of Jersey, visiting Dignitaries and Celebrities, Business Executives and Bridal parties for their important day.
