Our History

GT Automotive was founded in 2020 by two close friends with over 20 years of combined motor industry expertise.

Both directors have previous experience working in sales, aftersales, marketing, and management departments at multiple franchise dealers.

We became FCA regulated in June 2021, allowing us to provide several financing options to our customers.

Initially starting in Retford with only 5 cars in stock, the directors were responsible for a variety of daily tasks.

Within the first six months, business grew rapidly in Retford, leading us to start looking for a bigger location in Sheffield.

We partnered with RAC to give our customers with reliable warranty and breakdown coverage.

In November 2022, we opened our new dealership in Sheffield, which holds over 80 vehicles.

Since then, our team has grown to include new key roles such as valeting, aftersales, and administrators.

Following our significant expansion in Sheffield, we launched our on-site aftersales centre to prepare cars in-house and provide customers with a trusted location to repair and maintain their vehicles.

To improve customer experience while reducing our carbon footprint and paper waste, we introduced new paperless systems such as Dealerweb and Istoredocs.

GT Automotive currently works with ITC to provide customers with both finance and general insurance products in accordance with FCA regulations.

We are now expanding our stock month after month and hiring new staff members to help with the ever-growing business.
