Enthusiastic and eager after 37 years!

Looking for a new or used car or need a reliable service and MOT centre?  Then look no further than Roy Chapman Ltd, your local family run garage.  This year Roy Chapman and his family will have been serving Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire for an astounding 37 years!

Family Values

During those 37 years Roy Chapman Ltd has never lost its focus and continues to offer high levels of customer care; maintaining that genuine care cannot be faked and that friendliness and value are of prime importance.

Roy Chapman, now 67, started his working life as an apprentice motor mechanic in a Ford and Citroen dealership in Chalfont St Peter in 1959 and, by the age of 26, was MD of that company.  In 1974 he and his wife Anne founded Roy Chapman Ltd on the London Road in Berkhamsted, initially as a Peugeot dealership.  In subsequent years the business underwent massive growth incorporating franchises such as Talbot, Austin Rover, Citroen and Mazda.  The business is now primarily a Ford dealership whilst retaining authorised repairer status for Citroen and Mazda and an ‘all makes’ vehicle service centre.

Overall responsibility for running the company now lies with their children, Jeremy, Justine and Pauline and Roy still plays a very active role behind the scenes.

Seldom Beaten for Value and Friendliness

The company motto has remained the same from day one and indeed the Roy Chapman logo continues to feature the key members of the original team.

The company and staff are keen to offer assistance and advice but, whilst being professional, do not favour the pressure-selling techniques so often found within the motor industry.  Instead, they wish to develop a relationship with their customers; long-term friendships based on trust and value for money, and are deservedly proud of seeing the same customers return year after year, whilst warmly welcoming new faces.

Service Centre for Ford, Citroen and Mazda

Within their servicing operation the management team commit to competing with any genuine quotation and offer a free 15 mile collection and delivery service, as well as free wash and vacuum with all major service, MOT and repair work.  This can also be upgraded to a mini valet or a full overhaul of your car’s interior and exterior.  Their bodyshop is compliant with all major insurers.

Ford Sales Operation – Feel the Difference

The sales team are tremendously enthusiastic about today’s Ford products and offer the full range for extended test drive, taking care to match the car to your needs and welcoming part exchanges, whilst offering the best prices.  They are also able to offer ex-Ford owned cars via the Ford Direct Used Car Approved Programme and tailor-made finance packages, designed to suit your pocket rather than your bank managers!

If you haven’t yet given Roy Chapman Ltd a try, we suggest you do so as soon as possible!  Based upon their genuine values, friendliness, reputation and experience, we can’t think of a reason why you wouldn’t!
