Read Motor Group is delighted to announce the immediate takeover of Burton car retailer, TL Darby.

Earlier today, it was announced that Read Motor Group has expanded their net in a takeover of local car retailer, TL Darby. A longtime Volkswagen dealership, the latest move will see the TL Darby Volkswagen dealership become Read Hyundai Burton. As well as being the place to go for all things Hyundai in Burton, the dealership however will still be working closely with Volkswagen to maintain its current Aftersales service to Volkswagen customers old and new. As a Volkswagen authorised repairer, the same Volkswagen expert after sales team will continue to service and MOT all Volkswagen, Seat, Skoda and Cupra at the site as always.

The Read Motor Group is something of a success story, having grown from a single Hyundai site in 2010, to spanning 10 sites across the north and midlands area. It is family owned and run, with company owner Mike Read still very much in the driving seat of the business.

Right from the outset, the Group has stayed close to its roots of offering only the very best customer service, picking up many industry awards along the way. Indeed, the Group have just announced the outstanding achievement of being voted Hyundai National Retailer Group of the Year for 2023, as well as achieving Number 1 Retailer Group for Customer Focus for the second year running. As owner Mike Read affirms, “When it comes to customer service, our customers deserve all our expertise and professionalism - there is simply no substitute and that will never change.”

TL Darby has been a recognisable name and family-run business in the local area for over 50 years, and as such, owner Richard Darby was keen to be handing over the reins to a fellow family-run business owner.

Mike added, “Richard and the team at TL Darby have long been an important part of the local community, and I am proud to continue his legacy by serving customers in the Burton area with the same team, looking after customers old and new alike. The Hyundai brand is a very exciting brand and has some great things to offer, and I very much look forward to bringing it to Burton.”
