About Us
 
 
Our business has evolved over many years from three different directions. Hopefully, we won't bore you too much, but there is a little history about us below that you may find interesting.

Connellys Auto Repair Services
This venture was established back in 1994 as a partnership of Paul & Sean Connelly. The aim was to establish itself as an independent service specialist for the Honda marque.

The ability to provide genuine Honda trained expertise with OEM quality parts at a cost effective price was success for all the local Honda owners. The free local collection & delivery service was also very popular.

As the business expanded all makes & models are now catered for, and 1997 saw the business move into larger premises and employed an additional technician to cope with the increasing workload.

Further expansion of the business has resulted in the acquisition in May 2000 of Cornend Limited that traded under the name Macclesfield MOT & Service Centre (see below).

Macclesfield MOT & Service Centre
This business was established in 1977 (see photo) and has been one of Macclesfield's major MOT testing stations ever since. So much so that it is the only approved station by the Macclesfield Council for the testing of all Private Hire and Hackney Carriages (Taxis !) in the borough. It has held this position for many years now and is something that it is proud to have.

Along with MOT testing, other areas of work carried out is the undertaking of MOT repairs, general vehicle repairs and servicing. Again, this applies to all makes & models of vehicle up to small van size.

In May 2000, after a successful time at the helm, the current owner took the decision to retire and sell the business he had established, but only to someone he knew would continue the good name and work he had created. We were pleased that he agreed to sell the business (Cornend Limited) to Paul & Sean.

In February 2008 the opportunity to expand the business further into body repair work came with the acquisition of Jepson Motors (see below).
How the workshop originally looked...

Jepson Motors
Jeff Jepson established his business around a similar time to that of Macclesfield MOT & Service Centre providing a professional car body repair service.

It provided the full range of body repair services from dents to full resprays to insurance companies, local franchised main dealers as well as Macclesfield Borough Council.

Unfortunately, Jeff passed away in 2007 and his family approached Paul & Sean with the view to carrying on the high quality work and customer service Jepson Motors had always provided. This part of the business is now traded under the name of Macclesfield Body Repair Centre.

........................................................................................................................

Combined Business
Paul & Sean continue to integrate all the businesses to provide a full one stop shop for their customers.

The business currently employs eight staff, of which six are experienced technicians in their own fields. This all adds up to over 150 years worth of experience in the Motor Trade.

They have two Class IV MOT bays and five Nominated MOT Testers making it one of the busiest MOT testing stations in the Macclesfield area.

There are also a further four service bays and a fully equipped body repair shop including a spray booth and alignment jig.

They continue to invest in training and the latest diagnostic equipment to ensure they can continue working on all the latest vehicles.

In their efforts to maintain the highest level of customer service they welcome all customer feedback and are proud to be members of the Cheshire Trading Standards Approved Workshop scheme. This ensures the highest level of service by monitoring the business through the use of regular audits, mystery shops and customer feedback cards.
