Friends get revved up to revive a Timperley garage


"We are offering fast, professional and reliable services and I think what is really important is that we really do really care about our customers and their cars."
Ben Ray, Ridgeway Motors,



TWO friends are revved up to turn their passion for cars into a business – reviving a garage in Timperley.

Motorheads Ben Ray and Martin Stone – who have 20 years-experience in the industry each and share a 20-year friendship, have always wanted to open their own garage – and are now the proud owners of Ridgeway Motors.

The business on Ridgeway Road, which has been closed for six months, after being family run by the previous owners for 50 years, has been revived by the pair – who have both grown up in the area and want to see the garage continue to trade in their community.

Ben, aged 40, said: “We are really excited to go into business together, we always knew that we would make a good partnership and now was just the right time to do that.

“We have both grown up in the area – and wanted to have a small business that serves the community that it is in and that we have always been a part. We are offering fast, professional and reliable services and I think what is really important is that we really do really care about our customers and their cars.

“Ridgeway Motors has been a fixture in the area for such a long time and we hope to continue in the same way.”

Ben, who specialises in tyre and exhaust fitting and Martin, aged 41 as a car parts specialist, will be offering services, MOTs, welding, tyre fitting, brakes, suspension and exhaust repairs, diagnostics, wheel refurbishment and much more.

Martin added: “The site is ideally located to service the surrounding areas of Sale, Timperley, Altrincham and Wythenshawe and beyond and we offer free car collection and delivery as part of the service. We’re passionate about cars, and we bring that passion to the work we do.”

Ridgeway Motors is open from Monday to Friday 9am until 5pm and is offering free summer health checks for July and August.
