Choice, variety, great service and value . . .

Have your say

When it comes to choosing a used car we all want to find choice, variety, great service and value for money. LMC Autocentre in Mansfield can provide all this and a great deal more.

LMC Autocentre opened for business a year ago with the aim of providing high quality affordably priced vehicles together with a uniquely attentive and superior level of service. The team’s approach seems to be working well as their customer base is steadily rising.

This past year has been a very successful one for LMC Autocentre. Due to rising demand they’ve had to increase the workforce creating employment within the local area. The number of cars displayed has also increased to around 90 vehicles at any one time, with prices ranging from only £500 for a runabout right up to a still very reasonable £10,000 for more those searching for some more recently made and registered.

The servicing operation has also been expanded to include MOTs in addition to general servicing and repair work. All of these developments over the past 12 months have been brought about by word of mouth recommendation from satisfied customers.

Matthew Harvey and Chris Hibbert, the men behind the firm, possess a wealth of automotive sales experience having worked together at main dealerships at various stages in their careers. Matthew has spent a decade within the motor industry, five years with a Volkswagen franchised retailer, with two of those years as sales management level, and three years with Audi which saw him take on the role as Business Manager where he provided financial products to car purchasers. During his time with Audi, Matthew became an Audi R8 Advocate, a role that meant that he oversaw the very specialised arena of Audi R8 supercar sales.

Matthew went on to spend a year with a Mercedes-Benz franchised dealership but like Chris, his burning ambition to establish his own company became too great to ignore. This joint venture has proved to be exactly the right type of business to satisfy his aspirations.

Chris Hibbert also has a vast amount of motor industry expertise having spent 12 years within the sector. His experience at Nissan, Volkswagen and MG Rover dealerships has provided him with valuable insight into how to provide for the customers’ needs.

Matthew and Chris combined forces to create LMC Autocentre at what was the old Autocars site on Chesterfield Road North in Mansfield for 25 years. They purchased the site from the original dealer’s owners, refurbished the premises and opened for business just over a year ago.

The team’s enormous experience ensures that only the best used vehicles are selected for stock. You’ll find a broad mix of models covering most areas of the market and part exchange deals are also welcome while payment facilities through most major credit or debit cards can be provided.

And, in the unlikely event that you don’t find a car that exactly matches your needs on your first visit, Chris and Matthew will be able to source a vehicle that more than pleases you.

To ensure that there’s no outstanding finance, any accident damage or that no vehicle has been reported stolen, all cars come with a comprehensive vehicle history check supplied by leading company HPI. What’s more, comprehensive warranty cover is provided with the vast majority of vehicles.

With low prices, great quality cars, an inviting and comfortable customer lounge and friendly customer service the way it should always be, LMC Autocentre is an outstanding place to find your next car.

Matthew and Chris employ fully qualified and experienced automotive technicians enabling them to provide outstanding aftersales care.

Matthew says: “We operate much like a franchised main dealer does without the extra costs involved for customers. We and the team have a professional way of doing things, and by doing the basics well, we’ve managed to find ongoing success in what is a difficult market for many. We never say no to people, we’re very approachable and our transparent trading policy is proving popular with customers who we would like to thank for making LMC Autocentre the success it is today.”
