Family-run Vauxhall Dealer Accrington Garages welcomes it's third generation

A local family-run Vauxhall dealership in Accrington is welcoming the third generation to its family run business on Burnley Road.

Accrington Garages has been a successful Vauxhall dealership for almost half a century. Director, Wal Singh, and his two sons, Jag and Moni, have been flying the flag for the family-owned business in the town for over two decades. This year has seen the addition of the Singh family’s third generation, Wal’s grandson, Sonu.

Wal bought the dealership on Burnley Road 22 years ago and is proud to be one of the few family-run businesses in the area. He comments: “When I first bought the dealership, I knew it would be a bit of a risk, as the area is full of larger multi-franchise businesses, but our family values have made us great competition for the bigger enterprises in the area.

“Welcoming Sonu to the business is a very proud moment for me both personally and professionally. I remember the day he was born, so to see him today stood by my side along with Jag and Moni is an incredible feeling. We’re proud of being a close-knit family-run business; a warm, personal service is at the centre of how we operate.”

18 year old Sonu, who recently joined the dealership in his first job comments: “Seeing my family working in the motor industry from an early age influenced my passion for all things automotive, so I couldn’t have been happier when I started here at Accrington.

“It can be challenging working in a small business, but it’s definitely rewarding. We pride ourselves on providing extra personal attention to our customers to ensure they return time and time again, and it’s thanks to the team’s hard work and dedication that we have such loyal customers.”

Moni Singh, General Sales Manager, adds: “In the short time Sonu has been with us, we’ve already seen an uplift in our sales and I couldn’t be happier of his input to the dealership. We can’t wait to see what the future has to offer with this family dream team.”
