I thought I would do a blog introducing the business. As I previously said, cars are part of our lifestyle in more ways than one. Nick literally loves cars to the point he has a different one every 6 months, I sometimes think if he was faced with a decision between me or cars, he’d pick cars haha. Apparently, his passion for cars started around 2 years old, and it appears both our boys are following in his footsteps.
Turning what he loves into a career and working his way up through the motor trade to eventually run his own business, I’m very proud to call him my husband in all that he has achieved. I on the other hand was not born car mad or really know that much about them but since being with Nick I can appreciate a nice car when I see one. Having played mummy for nearly 5 years I’m excited to take on a new adventure with my husband and become part of the motor trade and learn the ropes… (AKA his tea maker no doubt).
Nicks had some great mentors along the way, two of which being his parents. The family have been in the motor trade for the past 25 years and spent the last 15 years running Westlands Motor Group. This consisted of 4 Toyota Franchise and 3 Hyundai. I know some people may think being the boss’s son may have made it easy for Nick, however he started off as a valeter and went through every stage of the industry. In June 2016 they collectively made the decision to sell Westlands Motor Group. Nick wanted his parents to enjoy their retirement together and do the things they’ve dreamed of doing, as their time was so consumed within the businesses. This created the perfect opportunity for us to start a new chapter. Within the sale they purchased the Hallow site back which is just outside Worcester, but due to the current Hyundai franchise existing in this site we agreed a two Year lease for them to relocate.
With the businesses sold but still eager to do what he loves best, Nick wanted to set up our own prestige used car dealership and with the support of his parents he’s done just that. That’s how Main Road Motor Company has come about. For the past 18months Nick and his side kick Alex have been working in a unit just outside Worcester selling used cars. Alex worked for nick in the previous business and together they make a great team. I think they have done so well because they are two genuinely nice guys, who share a love and passion for cars.
July 2018 we will move the business into the Hallow site. This will create a great opportunity as the site has a large showroom and much more space for used cars. Not only this but it will have its own workshop facility to recondition and service vehicles. The site will undergo some exciting development to create a unique environment, with a different feel to your typical Dealership.
With exciting times ahead, we will keep you all posted with updates on the developing new site. In the meantime, if you’d like to check our stock please click the link Main Road Motor Company
