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.

  • Customer Focused Dealer with excellent service

    By Janet S on 01 Oct | VERIFIED PURCHASE

    It was a first for me to purchase a car I had not even seen let alone driven! The Proprietor provided very detailed information and excellent photos to give me confidence that the vehicle was as described; he also arranged for it to be transported to my home in Wiltshire and once payment had been made it arrived within 2 working days. The BMW is a very good example, well looked after and looks great. I was looking for a rather rare model and RJ Tinsley had the best quality low mileage car within my price range so I decided to take a potential risk and buy remotely mainly because I felt I was dealing with a professionally run business. When it arrived I was very pleased with my purchase. The comprehensive warranty is another bonus, together with the rather unusual licence plate for Wiltshire.

  • A very satisfactory purchase.

    By Mark B on 15 Sep | VERIFIED PURCHASE

    Just bought a Used car recently through Andrew and I am very happy with it. A few minor problems once I received the car and Andrew sorted immediately. It wasn’t an issue for them to remedy.
