Our Story


Curwoods have 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.

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 vintage, classic and modern vehicles kept to our excellent standards.

Service is paramount to us. Should you be; The Queen 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.
