Calibre Car Sales Ltd is run by myself, Peter and my two sons, Edward & Noel.
I first began selling new vehicles for G.S. Last Ltd back in the early 70’s which was a large independent car dealership selling new Chryslers and Avengers. After finding my feet and learning fast, I was able to work my way up to be Sales Manager within a few years.
In 1974 I decided to go it alone and set up my own vehicle sales business on a small site near Weeley, Essex, starting with only a handful of cars. The business soon expanded which forced me to move several times to find larger and larger premises.
I finally found the perfect car site in Colchester on Cowdray Avenue which I moved to in 1997 and have been here ever since.
When Edward & Noel came on board we were able to fully take advantage of having 3 members of the same family all having the same drive and passion to succeed within this highly competitive industry.
Edward, with his interest in cars from an early age, soon knew every aspect of the business after only a few months of working together.
Noel brought with him a degree in Advertising & Marketing along with 5 years of marketing experience gained at his previous employers.
We became a Limited Company in 2016 so that we could all become shareholders of the family business.
Our desire to source good quality used vehicles and to deliver first-rate customer service has helped us become one of Colchester’s oldest family run car sales businesses.
