About Us

Commonwealth Motors Canberra is a long standing family owned business that offers you professional service and great value for money. Come in and visit us today.

Commonwealth Motors was established in 1952 by the Wright family. The business was launched with a Holden franchise, used car operation as well as service and parts. It is still operating today, albeit much expanded.

Trading from Melrose Drive in Phillip, ACT on an 8000 m2 site, Commonwealth Motors enjoys main road frontage and rear street access in the heart of Canberra's primary automotive precinct.

The business was started as, and continues to be family operation. Commonwealth Motors has been a leader of Canberra's Automotive industry for over 50 years and enjoys a sincere reputation of integrity and value.

Mid 2006 saw Commonwealth Motors rebrand itself, with the objective of raising our profile in the Canberra market. The old branding of Commonwealth Motors was becoming a bit dated. Something new and vibrant was needed.

In 2006 Commonwealth Motors developed a brand new, purpose built state of the art Holden Dealership at Tuggeranong. This location, whilst selling new Holdens is more focused on service and a parts distribution centre for the thriving Tuggeranong retail precinct.

In 2007 additional construction was completed on the new service centre. Now operating at capacity, this state-of-the-art purpose built complex is located on a block adjacent to the main Phillip Dealership.

2009 saw the completion of the brand new Dealership at Phillip. The new building follows the strict guidelines for environmentally sustainable buildings giving it a very low carbon footprint.

At the same time as the new Dealership was being built Commonwealth Motors also invested heavily in a state of the art fully automated car wash system, using the latest water recycling technology. Now every customer who purchases a car from Commonwealth Motors receives three years of free car washing.

Since inception, Commonwealth Motors has continued developing its new car franchises, used car operation and a massive parts and service centre. This continuous period of trading in Canberra could not have been achieved without the dedicated efforts of the owners, managers and staff. It is a testimonial to their efforts that the people of Canberra continue to buy and service their vehicles with Commonwealth Motors.
