Paul's Motors Ltd
Rue Du Pré
St Peter Port
40 years, a local success story
At Paul's Motors we don't just sell cars, we do everything possible to get you driving your perfect car and then we support your ownership experience with high quality servicing, repairs and parts.
It was founded in January 1973, by Paul Le Page in partnership with J E Collback & Sons (Guernsey) Limited. Paul left his job as Workshop Foreman at Ruette Braye Motors and purchased the current site from former owner Bill Green who had specialised in motorcycle sales and repairs since the 1950’s.
Paul’s Motors opened for business on 26th January 1973 with franchises ŠKODA and Audi. In 1976 Paul replaced Audi with Mitsubishi. In 1978 Paul became sole owner of Paul’s Motors Limited. Paul remained with ŠKODA and Mitsubishi until 1988 and 1991 respectively. Not yet ready to retire he continued in used car sales alongside service and repair until 1996.
Paul’s son, Carl, joined the business in 1996 when the company decided to take back the ŠKODA franchise. ŠKODA had become part of the Volkswagen Group a few years earlier and was rapidly improving. Carl proceeded to take over the business in 1999. He strives to maintain the goals set by his father to provide a friendly, reliable and professional service to every customer.
Along with the ŠKODA franchise, they also buy and sell used cars, offer service, parts, body and paint repairs. This is provided with a team made up of nine dedicated staff. Carl heads the business and is supported by Sales Manager Matthew Prevel, Service Manager Tim Tulie, Christine Loveridge in accounts, technicians Thomas Johns, Shane Le Patourel and Levi Turian, valeter Daniel Gallienne and bodywork specialist Jon Archer. A truly local success story.
The Paul's Motors team are shown above at the former George Street, Guernsey showroom.
Proud to be a part of one of the longest serving motor traders on the island, Carl says:
‘We are an established family business who have seen many changes within the motor trade over the past 44 years. Particularly the ŠKODA brand which has improved tremendously in recent times, won countless awards and seen fantastic growth. We will continue to adapt to the ever changing industry, have plans in place for a new site for showrooms and, as always, will do our best to put the customer first.’
And don't forget, beyond our first class team and customer service, we can offer great savings on quality new and used cars with competitive service pricing, so please give us a call.
