Originally founded in 1957 in Newcastle upon Tyne, Benfield has gone on to become one of the most successful motoring businesses in the region – and beyond. With over 30 dealerships, offering 12 brands, the organisation covers the north east, Yorkshire, Cumbria and south-west Scotland.
The company story moved up a gear when in September 2015, the Lookers Group acquired Benfield. Joining another business whose origins also lay in private ownership was a perfect fit, as both shared the same ethos and customer service values.
While much of the Benfield infrastructure remains in place allowing customers to connect with familiar faces and locations, customers can also benefit from access to additional brands at even more dealerships. The combined Group portfolio now consists of 31 major brands, offering 10,000 vehicles at 153 dealerships across the UK and Ireland.
As well as offering a huge range of brands, customers may also benefit from a huge range of used vehicles, arranging services, buying parts and booking bodyshop facilities for new and used cars as well as commercial vehicles.
Whether you are looking for that first car, or have a family to safely yet stylishly transport, or even wish to own that ‘dream drive’, we are here to assist.
