Garage shows no sign of ‘tyring’ as it celebrates 10th birthday

A MOTORCYCLE repair centre opened by Altrincham-based insurance specialist Carole Nash is showing no signs of ‘tyring’ after celebrating its tenth birthday!
The Carole Nash Repair Centre, on the Lyons Industrial Estate in Altrincham, opened in August 2002 following a £250,000 investment.
Since then it has rescued and repaired thousands of bikes nationwide which were damaged in accidents or through attempted thefts.
It was set up to improve service standards to Carole Nash customers and to help minimise the cost of repairs to the insurers that underwrite its policies. It did so by offering services such as free collection, delivery and valeting of bikes and being able to exert direct control over costs charged to insurers. In its first year it cut the cost of an average motorcycle repair by 13 per cent.
Now employing 13 staff – mainly specialist motorcycle mechanics – and fitted out with state-of-the-art repair equipment, the centre serves not just Carole Nash policyholders but major insurers whose customers have suffered an accident.
To mark the ten year milestone Carole Nash’s operations and sales director Dave Cullen presented centre manager Paul Turner and his team with a birthday cake. Paul, who has been at the centre since day one, commented: “I can hardly believe its 10 years since we first lifted the shutters on the centre, it’s flown by.”
Dave Cullen praised the centre for the contribution it makes to the overall success of Carole Nash which is the UK’s biggest motorcycle insurance specialist.
