22 Years - Est. 13th March 1993

Same business, Same Company, More Product. Faster Service, Lower Prices  

Back in 1993 the two partners operated from a small office who's entrance was shared with a taxi company, the rent was £27 per week! There was no internet and orders where typed onto headed paper and faxed to suppliers. A 40-page black and white price list come brochure was the first offering to customers. Each page would be photo-copied 100 times into 40 bundles, the partners would then walk up the 40-page line taking one page from each pile before stapling it ready to send. This time consuming labourous task was more often than not a job for weekends or evenings. Both partners had another two jobs each, Mark worked as a building labourer some days whilst Tim held the office.

At night time both partners would be pizza delivery drivers and Tim also worked 3-nights as a Chef. Most of the money from those other jobs went into the 4x4 business which lost money for the first two years. Working 70-80 hours and 7-days a week with barely any wage was an experience and one that saw girlfriends come and go recalls Tim. The only holidays consisted of a two week Christmas shut-down, parts were stored in a store room at Mark's parent's house located a mile away. Money was so tight that after a few Saturday night beers the pair would walk the 6-miles home instead of paying £8 for a taxi. In the third year we made a profit, took on our first member of staff affectionately named gangles, gangles was fast and reliable and fortunately for us loved driving as we often collected goods from our suppliers then in Nottingham.

Mark recalls one occasion when gangles had failed to return from the store room after 2-3 hours though he'd only been sent on a 15-minute errand. Mark's mum had heard some muffled yelping from the store room and gangles was found buried under a stack of tyres that had fallen on top of him, pinning him to the floor helpless. He was soon released unhurt and we all had a good laugh about it. Sunday's were spent packaging trucktops for sending as the duo had started an operation in Mansfield Notts assembling the Texas supplied Brahma trucktop. This carried on until 1998 when a land purchase in Leeming Bar saw the 2-man band (Gangles didn’t fancy the move) build its own warehouse on the trading estate. Actually it was Mark's dad who built the warehouse.

One part time warehouse man and a tyre fitter soon followed as did two sales advisors over the next 2-3 years, Mark still raised every invoice himself and Tim would deal with ordering and after hours with girlfriend Jayne (now wife) would 'do the accounts'. Expansion saw another two warehouses built and several more staff were taken on. There are now 5-warehouses across the 2-acre site at Leeming Bar, these are all bursting with accessories, tops and tyres, and staff number 25 in-total. A sixth warehouse is in the planning process now.
