About Us

Derek Slack started business in 1973 in a small rented workshop in Coral Street in central Middlesbrough repairing motor cars. Derek served his time as a motor mechanic and has worked at a number of garages, gaining a wide range of experience on most makes of cars.

1973 was not a special year, it had plenty of disasters and triumphs, the prime minister was Tory Edward Heath and Britain was at the height of disruption with Trade Unions, 3 day weeks and the Arab Oil Embargo.

Despite the uncertain economic climate Derek prospered and eventually purchased larger premises in Stonehouse Street, Linthorpe. Now specialising in Reliant Tricycles, Derek became the aftersales agent for supplying parts and eventually for sales of new cars.

Again for a third time in 1984 Derek had ran out of space and moved around the corner to Cumberland Road to larger premises, which had a small showroom and space to become and MOT centre.
