Howards Motor Group
Howards Motor Group is a third generation family business, started in 1972 by Leo ‘John’ and Peter Coleman.
The business has grown from a small car garage selling pre-owned cars to a franchised dealer group of 265 colleagues representing seven brands at 12 retail points across Somerset and Dorset.
Howards is partnered with Nissan, Peugeot, Citroen, Honda, Kia, Toyota and Hyundai to provide sales of new and pre-owned cars, service facilities and all franchise parts requirements.
With constant property investment and colleague training Howards is able to provide a quality customer experience across all of its businesses, which has been recognised with the group winning a number of customer service awards. This has been achieved by the group also remaining faithful to its core principles of delivering quality, trust, respect, convenience and value for money.
As well as the traditional franchise model, Howards Motor Group also has a dedicated Used Car Centre located in Yeovil, where the group sells non-franchised cars to cover all brands covering a wider pricing, age and mileage bracket.
Howards Motor Group has also made efforts to support their local communities with sponsorships of football, rugby and cricket teams as well as supporting a number of charitable causes both at a national and local level.
