B.A.B. Motors, Derby: 50 years in business
Celebrating 50 highly successful years in business this year, B.A.B. Motors has long been the first port of call for many motorists when it comes to the supply and fitting of tyres, exhausts and batteries. Dave King takes a look at the business.
GERRY Booth established B.A.B. Motors in 1963 and over the past half-century his firm has gathered a very large customer base, a situation largely brought about by the business's value-for-money pricing policy together with the friendliness and efficiency of its customer care.
Gerry handed over the reins to sons Adrian and Martin in 1994, then in 2003 Martin stepped aside and Adrian took over full responsibility for the business. While Adrian still continues his involvement on the administrative side, it is his son and daughter, Billy and Lucy, who run B.A.B. Motors today.
B.A.B. Motors is one of Derby's busiest independent "while-u-wait" tyre and exhaust providers. Conveniently located in Elton Road, Derby, close to the Showcase Cinema and not far from Bombardier and Rolls-Royce, it specialises exclusively in the fitting, repair and replacement of exhausts, catalytic converters, tyres and batteries.
Bissell's 8910E Aroma Pro is the ultimate in home cleaning giving you a machine that provides outstanding results when not just cleaning carpets but stairs and upholstery too.
