About us

We first opened our doors for business back in 1968, when Gerald Braithwaite started a small workshop adjoining the family home.

Initially, Gerald only offered vehicle repairs but soon began selling cars. The business expanded quickly over the following years and soon outgrew the original workshop, meaning that larger premises were required which were constructed directly opposite comprising of a  workshop and covered showroom.

In addition to which the display area our used vehicles are displayed within a dry stone walled section of the site providing a Lakeland themed setting in keeping with the beautiful surroundings.

Today there are three generations of the Braithwaites family working within the business, Gerald’s two sons Mark and Nigel both joined after leaving school and more recently Nigel’s son Sam has started to work on the sales side of the business.

From the very start Gerald has always taken great pride in offering excellent customer service and care, these principles have been passed down through the generations so you can always rest assured of receiving excellent customer service backed up with high quality, handpicked cars from a name you can trust.
