About Us

We take pride in what we do

Company History

Benley Automotive was started after owners Ben Minton and Lee Murphy spotted a need within the automotive industry for an independent garage to offer a main dealer level of service at a realistic price.

We realised that customer service is key which is why we offer our customers vehicle collection and deliveries, courtesy cars, and recoveries. This means that our customers are inconvenienced as little as possible while their cars are being worked on.

Our Staff

We also believe that employing friendly, hardworking staff that care about our customers helps to ensure we offer the best service possible and grow a reputable brand within the industry.

Since inception this ethos has stood us in good stead and we now have 8 members of staff including 4 mechanics and support staff.

Our Core Values

1Customer care

From your first contact with us through to job completion, we aren't satisfied unless you are.

2Value for money

Unlike other garages we use a set formula for calculating our quotations

3No hidden fees

We never charge for any work or parts that you haven't first agreed to


From long opening hours to our free collection service, we want to make things as convenient as possible for you.
