R J Tinsley The Auto House

"R.J Tinsley The Autohouse was started by the present principal’s father in 1958. At that early date, the business consisted of a simple wooden shed, performing basic maintinence and repairs with the proprietor, Mr Bertie Tinsley, as the one and only operative. By assiduous attention to the needs of customers, and by hard and reliable work, the business progressed by stages through the years, being appointed an official BMC dealership in 1966.The connection with BMC, via Rover continued until the mid 1990’s when the son of the founder, Mr Andrew Tinsley, took over the business and severed the Rover connection, seeing a better future as an independent dealer and this philosophy continues today.The Present Proprietor and Dealer Principal, Mr Andrew Tinsley is now in complete control of all aspects of the business and has assembled an excellent team to co-ordinate the efficient day to day running of each department.Andrew, elder son of the founder, was educated locally and initially apprenticed to Sainsbury’s in England, where he received a sound business training.He then spent a short time in Isaac Agnew Limited, Boucher Road, Belfast, joining the Dromore family firm in 1995. At an early age he assumed control of the business. On retirement of his father and during this period has shown further development including an energetic rebranding of the business to it’s present state.

  • A great experience

    By Michael M on 03 Apr | VERIFIED PURCHASE

    I Met the sale team with a friendly handshake in his office. He showed me around the car and we both sat inside whilst he showed me all the cars functions before we took it out on the open road for an enjoyable and informative test drive.. once we returned he then turned his attentions to my car which I wished to trade in.. After his test drive we both went to the office for negotiations, which ended up as a friendly chat, with both of us coming out with a deal we both thought was pleasing. So far I haven't had to try RJ Tinsleys after care service as the car is going like a dream.. I would highly recommend RJ Tinsleys to anyone and will hopefully be a return customer.. All the best in the future to the Tinsley Team

  • When customers are important

    Cars are mechanical and sometimes things go wrong but I needn’t have worried having bought my car from RJ Tinsley. As good as his word Andrew looked after the repair and sorted everything keeping me informed as work progressed. On reflection I could have got a car privately or purchased from a dealer whose after sales service wasn’t a priority. With car back I am delighted with how we were treated and would certainly be back there again.

    Excellent service. The dealer of this family run company was very very patient with us. We weren't making the biggest purchase from the showroom, yet we were treated very respectfully. The showroom has it's own service garage which is very professional looking.

  • Car purchase a pleasure from RJ Tinsley, Dromore.

    By John S on 21 Feb 18 | VERIFIED PURCHASE

    It has recently been my pleasure to buy a car from RJ Tinsley, The Auto House, Dromore. I was looking for an older model XC70 Volvo. RJ Tinsley were able to offer me a superb quality, low mileage car at a realistic price. Trade in price was also very acceptable. Overall the purchase experience was a pleasure. I look forward to doing business in future with this local family business that really does offer great customer service.
