About GMC

Founded in December 2004

GMC Ltd was founded in December 2004 by Andrew Beckton and Nick Hepworth with the main aim of providing a professional one stop vehicle care service.

We have grown steadily since then, and built our reputation on quality and level of service. We have good relationships with the local public and businesses which brings us plenty of repeat business. We have also built up good working relationships with insurance companies and their engineers.

We provide MOT, mechanical service and repair and are RAC approved.

We cover all makes and models of vehicle and are manufacturer approved for Peugeot, Citroen and DS body repairs. This includes cars, vans, horse boxes, camper vans and caravans. Our facilities are structured to carry out all body repairs. This includes accident damaged vehicles and general everyday repair work. We use approved manufacturer products and methods for all repairs and guarantee all works carried out.

GMC believes its employees are its greatest asset and recognises its responsibility to ensure they are afforded appropriate development throughout their employment.

Our aim is to support and develop employees in their role so that they feel confident to undertake the responsibilities placed upon them and ultimately are able to contribute to the success of the organisation.
