Bargain deals for car dealers 35th birthday
PUBLISHED: 08:30 11 December 2011
A CAR and motorcycle repair specialists is celebrating 35 years in business - with a series of cut-price deals.
Predator Motorsport, in South Mundells, WGC, is offering recession-busting bargains on services and MOTs, as it celebrates its birthday.
MOTs on all cars, bikes, quads, scooters, vans and mopeds now cost £19.99, and a full service and free MOT on any car or van is just £99 plus parts.
“Times are hard for people,” said owner Colin Fitch.
“I’ve got customers who’ve been coming in for years who have always had Michelin tyres now asking for budget ones.
“I just feel right about doing this.”
The company has come a long way since Colin first started out repairing motorcycles in his mum’s garage in WGC.
At one point, Predator Motorsport owned three stores across Times Territory, but the recession of 1990 saw all three closed down, before Colin moved to a unit in Hatfield town centre.
“I was squatting in the store for a while,” admitted Colin.
“Then we moved back to WGC, first to Southfields then to Tewin Road. We were there seven years before we moved to the current unit two years ago.”
“We’ve got three MOT lanes and we can do 25 MOTs in an hour,” said Colin. “We don’t let customers down.”
The company made headlines in 2009 when it staged a fundraising day at the lagoon, off Mundells, is support of British troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
And he hasn’t ruled out another party to celebrate more than four decades in business.
“You have to keep reinventing yourself,” he said.
