History of Micheldever Tyre and Auto Services

The 1970s

Micheldever Tyre & Auto Services was founded in 1972 by Tony Todd, a qualified Marine Engineer from Torquay. In its infancy, Micheldever Tyre & Auto Services focused on car repairs and sales, before developing into a specialist tyre supplier to car drivers and agricultural customers in 1979.

 

History of Micheldever Tyre & Auto Services - 1980s

In 1983 the original Micheldever Tyre & Auto Services burned down. For most, this catastrophe would've been a major set back, but Tony Todd turned disaster into an opportunity. He adapted a storage building located in Sutton Scotney as a temporary facility and carried on providing his service to an ever expanding base of loyal customers.

In 1985 Micheldever Tyre & Auto Services officially rose from the ashes, when the 'new' purpose built tyre fitting site was opened. In 1986, further development at Micheldever saw an expansion in the services offered to its customers on the current site. This led the way for Micheldever Tyre & Autos' evolution into becoming more than just a tyre retailer, but a true tyre specialist.

 

The 1990s

The next stage in Micheldevers' history came in 1998 when the whole site was revamped and expanded in order to allow the company to offer even more services to its customers including exhaust, brakes and suspension. We were honored to host Murray Walker OBE, who officially re-opened the site on the 30 th May. Shortly after this date our dedicated Motorcycle and Premier Bays were opened, allowing us to further extend our offer of expert service to Motorcyclists and customers who wish to book by appointment.





The 2000's

In 2000/01 Micheldever introduced a mobile tyre fitting service so that its customers could have their tyres fitted whilst they were at work/home.

In 2006 the company founder sold Micheldever Tyres to a new Management Team, headed by Paul Fox and Richard Sawney with backing from Graphite Capital and Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS).

Today, the company is the largest independent wholesaler, distributor and retailer of tyres in the UK. Selling six million tyres in 2009/10 (20 percent of the total UK market). In addition to offering car, motorcycle and off-road tyres we also fit exhausts, brakes and shock absorbers.

We believe passionately in providing exceptional customer service and value for money, and together with our team of qualified technicians, we are dedicated to providing this level of service to every customer, every time.
