Lloyd Motor Group is one of the best-known independent automotive groups in the UK. It was founded in 1976 with only one BMW retail centre in Cockermouth, Cumbria. From the humble beginnings to a leading automotive giant, Lloyd Motor Group has had a rapid development as a company.
The Group is famous for its impressive customer service and technical expertise, which additionally improves its reputation. Lloyd Motor Group represents numerous top-class brands, including BMW, Jaguar, MINI, Volvo, Honda, Land Rover and Kia. The company also represents BMW and Honda Motorcycles, which draws in an even wider customer base.
After a successful start in Cockermouth in 1976, the company started to develop at a rapid pace, and only one year later, it got the Volvo franchise. In 1986, Lloyd Motor Group added a new dealership to its BMW portfolio, but this time in Carlisle. Two years later, it also took over the Honda franchise in the same place.
In 1994, it was time to expand again and branch out to reach another type of customer, such as large families, or those seeking off-road adventurers. The company decided to open a Land Rover dealership in Rosehill, Carlisle and later, a Rover dealership in the same location.
