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.

    RJ Tinsleys went above and beyond to make everything as easy as possible for me when I bought the Honda Jazz. It meant that everything was done for me without having to ask and made the purchase stress free.

  • Outstanding

    By Joshua T on 15 Nov 19 | VERIFIED PURCHASE

    My experience with R J Tinsley has been very positive. Our purchase went without a hitch and the staff were very helpful and professional. He took the time to assist us and answer questions, all for a reasonable price. The motor is in top condition and I would certainly recommend friends and family to use them in the future.

  • Exceptional.

    By James M on 07 Oct 19 | VERIFIED PURCHASE

    Had a great 5 star experience with R.J.Tinsleys. The sale was very straightforward and transparent, and they got the car put through the MOT before purchase. All was explained clearly for a new-time buyer (tax etc) and the car was in lovely condition. The three month warranty was upheld and the service provided was second to none. I had a couple of difficulties with clutch and engine light over the couple months after buying, but R.J. Tinsleys sorted it out seamlessly and professionally. They put a lot of effort into ensuring excellence of customer support. I was kept up to date and arrangements were made to ensure the car was dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible. Truly exceptional sale and wonderful service.
