Delighted to announce that Completely Motoring Ltd has won the Gloucestershire Media "Family Business of the year for 2017!" Over 700 guests were at the Cheltenham Racecourse on Thursday 5th October to see us collect two awards, with our Admin Manager, Katie Young also winning employee of the year.
Rob Ayland described it as "A very proud Dad moment..." and "one of the best achievements of my career...."
Completely Motoring was formed by Rob Ayland in the Spring of 2009. His mission from the start was to deliver choice, quality and an exceptional level of customer care. This approach has been the foundation for the company's success and over the last 8.5 years, Completely Motoring has evolved to become one of the largest quality used car and motorcycle retailers in Gloucestershire, selling over 900 vehicles in the last 12 months alone, and circa 5,500 vehicles since opening.
As well as choice and great value, the Completely Motoring Group can offer a wealth of experience in the motor industry. Rob Ayland, was formerly the managing director of Warners of Gloucester Ltd and most recently the MD of Mitsubishi Motors Retail Operations. Operationally, he oversees the company with his eldest son George who is car sales manager, middle son James who runs the motorcycle division, and Charlie who has just left higher education to join the sales department. Although very much a family business, long term friends Katie Young (Administration Manager) and Graham Evans, are supported by Dave Hass, Mike Williams and Andy Moore who all form part of a close knit team with customer care at the centre of their daily routines.
Apprentices Matthew Greening, Alex Hale and part time sales support, Imi and Bella Ainslie all assist the smooth 7 day a week operations.
Over recent months the after-sales division has expanded greatly and is headed up by Ryan Napper, a local man with a wealth of experience, who is also a fully qualified MOT tester/authorised examiner. The company has invested heavily in the state of the art MOT testing facilities and has gone live testing 2, 3 and 4 wheeled vehicles. Air conditioning, diagnostics and all servicing works are part of the daily tasks carried out with great attention to detail. As a customer of Completely Motoring you will benefit from reduced rates for MOT and our real customer care package will provide value right through the lifetime of the vehicle supplied.
As a family run business, Completely Motoring also cares about environmental issues and is known regionally as ' Gloucestershire's solar powered used car dealership'. The company is also involved in various charities and Rob Ayland was honoured to serve as chairman of the Old Spot Trust which raised money in Gloucestershire for good causes.
December 2016 saw the opening of 'Completely Motorbikes'. All stock can be viewed on a separate website: www.completelymotorbikes.co.uk
