Ex-dealers set up servicing company

Two ex-dealership managers have set up a new independent servicing company to rival main dealership’s services in Hampshire.

The new company has been set up by Rikki Johnstone, ex-dealer principal of Testwood Motors’ Volkswagen and Audi business and David Hemsley ex-used car sales manager at Testwood.

The aptly titled ‘Independent Servicing’ will be opening its doors for business at new premises in School Lane in Chandlers Ford, Hampshire next month and is already taking bookings.

Independent Servicing specialises in Volkswagen Group cars and offers full servicing together with car sales and MOT testing. The company's technicians are manufacturer trained.

"I fully anticipate that we will be able to offer savings of up to 50%," said Johnstone.

“The main dealerships have their niche but we have thoroughly researched the marketplace and have confirmed that there is a type of motorist who wants greater value and a more personal service. They'll find us friendly and professional and with no franchise to hide behind we will have to deliver," added Hemsley.

Independent Servicing will open early next month.
