Autoroute Car Centre was established 20 years ago in a small village garage in Bredhurst Kent. Formerly a petrol station the site was run down and definitely unloved however over the first 4 weeks it underwent a total transformation and the business was born.
Nigel and Tim the two Directors were schoolboy friends and have grown up together, between them they have a vast amount of experience with over 56 years within the trade. Nigel cut his teeth as an apprentice technician with Ford Motor Company and worked his way up into the sales department ending up as sales manager of their Gravesend branch. Tim carried out a 4 year apprenticeship in Mechanical Engineering and spent a further 4 years putting those skills into practice within the power generation industry.
The company has gone from strength to strength and after 4 years of trading their second and main site was acquired. Autoroute is a prominent main road site presenting up to 120 aggressively priced quality used vehicles.
The Dealership regularly sells in excess of 60 vehicles per month and has created permanent positions for 10 staff.
The sales team is kept busy on a daily basis dealing with a volume of customer enquiries and vehicle demonstrations. Jonathan the Sales manager has a wealth of experience having started as an apprentice salesman with us before leaving to join firstly Volkswagen and then Mercedes-Benz main dealers, Jonathan has now made the decision to rejoin us as General Manager and spearhead our sales team at our newly extended and refurbished Autoroute site.
