We are delighted to announce that Bill has joined us as a WAV Adviser after a long employment with another company. You can be sure of a warm welcome from Bill, his gentle nature makes him a natural fit here at SMV Ltd. Bill brings a wealth of industry experience and thoroughly enjoys meeting new customers when they come into our yard. He's keen to understand your needs so feel free to open up and tell him what you want or don't want so he can find the ideal solution for your needs. Bill lives in Bognor Regis and has done for many years and is relishing his new challenge which is on his doorstep so he has no excuse for being late! Bill's laid back attitude and incredible patience is something we welcome with open arms here at our busy little family business, we say family because that's what it feels like to us all. Patrick in particular is thrilled that Bill chose to join our vibrant team because they have known each other since they were 11 and they worked together for several years in the 1980's. Bill jokes that at least he will stop asking me to come and work with him now but secretly they both knew it was meant to be, welcome aboard Bill.
Peter has over 50 years experience in the motor trade and now more than 14 years experience buying and selling only wheelchair accessible vehicles. Peter says, it all started when a colleague needed a wheelchair accessible vehicle or, WAV, as they are sometimes known, for a close relative in need. After an extensive search they found the right wheelchair accessible vehicle and the reaction they got when they delivered it was a life changing moment for them all. From that moment Peter vowed he would only buy and sell wheelchair accessible vehicles and he has never looked back. Now almost 15 years on he is still passionate about providing only the best wheelchair accessible vehicles from the best converters in the UK so he knows his customers can be confident they are buying from the right company. Peter is a family man and enjoys waving his arms around in true Italian style whilst cooking his favourite dishes for all the family to enjoy!
Southern Mobility Vehicles welcomes their newest team member Jim who brings with him a wealth of transport experience. Even though wheelchair accessible vehicles are new to Jim his experience has served him well and quickly got himself up to speed with all vehicle types and is ready to demonstrate your new vehicle to you. If you buy from us, you will almost certainly meet “Gentleman” Jim as he deals with all our logistics. His cool, calm manner will sooth the brow of the most worried of WAV buyers and he will always ensure any new customers are 100% happy with their purchase before he leaves them. Besides making sure our customers are happy with their new arrivals on delivery, you will find Jim meticulously working away preparing and maintaining all our vehicles so they are ready for our customers coming to view them here at our yard between Chichester and Bognor Regis. Jim lives very close to Southern Mobility Vehicles yard so guess who will be manning the station if it snows! In his spare time Jim loves to dance which certainly makes him unique here at the yard because between the rest of us we couldn’t muster a waltz!
Sales and Marketing Manager
Patrick joined Southern Mobility Vehicles in 2016 looking for a career change and he has never looked back saying it is the best job he’s ever had. He says it’s very different from financial services but it’s still always about the people and making sure they end up being recommended the right solution for their needs. Patrick is the Sales and Marketing Manager for the business, but he jokes and says it’s just a title. He still washes cars, sweeps the yard and makes the tea and coffee saying it’s all hands on deck in a small business like this. Whatever needs to be done to make us the best we can possibly be is crucial in our business he says, because after all we are dealing with people who aren’t coming to buy the car of their dreams. He says, it’s up to us to make all our customers as welcome as we can and give them a relaxing experience when they come through our gates looking for a WAV. Patrick’s interests revolve around his local beach and enjoying his granddaughter Amelia as often as possible.
