Pearsons Garage and Motorcycle Centre the oldest family run Garage in Penarth
In conversation with Clive Pearson at Pearson’s garage, the oldest family-run garage in Penarth, we discovered both traditional and fresh approaches to business.
The current team consists of Clive Pearson as manager, Andy Escott is in charge of the workshops, Nigel Stanton is M.O.T inspector, Laren McDermot is a technician and Jake Gaughn is currently an apprentice. A sense of family pervades in the company too – Clive’s young daughter, Alyza, has the honorary title of ‘Junior Mechanic’ and enjoys spending time with him at the garage.
“Pearson’s was opened in 1946 by my grandfather, Harold Pearson; my father took over from him and eventually I took over,” Clive says. “Our client group includes the great-grandchildren of my grandfather’s original customers.”
“I’ve seen technology change unbelievably even over just the last few years; but we do keep up with the latest diagnostic equipment.”
A recent addition to the garage is a motorcycle centre, with M.O.T. (class 1&2). Pearson’s are the sole company in Penarth to carry out this service. Another notable development at Pearson’s is that Class 1,2,3 & 4 M.O.T. services are now available.
As well as new offers there are many ongoing deals of great value at Pearson’s, – all M.O.T.s are discounted for customers aged over 60, and all parts sold have a 10% discount.
Longstanding members of RMI (Retail Motor Industry) Federation, Pearson’s have also become part of the Good Garage Scheme with a five-star rating and shining reviews. Users describe their work as going “above and beyond expectations” and mention company qualities such as “Excellent customer service”.
Pearson’s serve a wide customer-base, with clients travelling from beyond the borders. Catering to all models and makes, they are a popular and reliable choice for many.
The company ethos is simple and positive- “Every single customer is treated as friend” says Clive. Time is always made to discuss individual customer needs, and Pearson’s team are friendly and approachable, with over 100 years experience between them.
Safety of all clients’ vehicles valued extremely highly, as is the intention to provide customers with a worthwhile service at a reasonable cost.
