David Maundrell

David has over 30 years experience in the trade and has always had a passion for cars and has successfully turned his obsession into an established and highly respected business. His friendly and engaging manner is self-evident on first meeting and he is always willing to share his knowledge and experiences with others to provide them with the very best car.

With the advent of the internet he has transformed the way he does business, moving it from several high profile (but expensive) roadside forecourt sites to dedicated indoor showrooms in a rural location. This has allowed him to offer the most competitive pricing with the resulting savings passed onto his customers.

Steve teamed up with David 12 years ago and has over 25 years experience in the motor trade. He is an approachable professional who offers genuine advice and brings unrivalled experience and skills to the Maundrell & Co team. Particular strengths are his extensive client base and his 'business to business' sales portfolio (for both private and commercial vehicles). FSA trained, he is well placed to offer expert advice on how best to finance customer's vehicles at the very best possible rates.

But there is more to Steve than his obvious energy and enthusiasm. He prides himself on guiding customers through the process of selecting their next car which helps explain why so many have stayed loyal to him for so many years.

Away from the office, he has a passion for Motorsport and he has been racing cars since 1995, competing at both national and international levels. This has given him an unrivalled knowledge of technical and performance issues, which means he is well placed to advise others as they select their prestige or sports car.
