Our business has evolved over many years from two different directions, culminating in who we are today. As a long-established garage, we are proud of our history which has shaped the way we do business, ensuring high standards of service are maintained on a daily basis.
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 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 Cheshire East Council for the testing of all Private Hire and Hackney Carriages (Taxis !) in the town. 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.
Paul & Sean continue to integrate all the businesses to provide a full one stop shop
for their customers.
The business currently employs seven 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 the latest tyre fitting equipment.
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 Trading Standards Approved Buy with Confidence scheme. This ensures the highest level of service by being vetted, checked and monitored regularly.
