AEW Paddock Motors was set up in 1975. Our intention was originally to supply parts to the local Land Rover community as well as a small amount of mail order. However, we very quickly saw our mail order services grow from strength to strength and found ourselves employing more warehouse and office staff and utilising more and more warehousing for parts storage. Our place as one of the largest independent retailers of spares and accessories for the Land Rover marque was really beginning to take form.
The ‘second phase’ of the company started at the end of 1990. We had stopped selling vehicles due to the growth of the parts business and had simply grown out of our original premises. It necessary to relocate. We moved 7 miles to brand new warehousing facilities that offered us far greater storage space as well as new offices. During the 1990’s we were considered one of the few larger independent retailers of parts and accessories and had become renowned for our purchasing ability. It was due to our purchasing power that we became able to offer the best prices. It was at this point that we started our ‘Price Guarantee’ – if another company was selling the same product as us, we would not be beaten on price. This is a guarantee that we still offer today.
Paddock Spares has expanded greatly during the new millenium. The internet has played a large role in this, with our web site being one of the first to offer on line shopping for Land Rover spares. Our web site has always been maintained in-house which has enabled us to add new products and change prices (often reduce them!!!) very quickly. Customers are now able to shop at Paddock Spares as and when they choose to with many orders coming through while our offices are actually closed. The internet has also made it easier for Land Rover owners all over the world to source their parts from the UK. An increase in exports has certainly been seen at Paddock Spares.
Paddock have enjoyed for many years our position as the UK’s largest indepenent retailer of parts and accessories suitable for the Land Rover marque. We have massive stocks which enable us to give you the best prices and service. To read some of the testimonials we have received from users of our on line shop click here.
