About Us

Des Winks Cars was established 35 years ago in 1978 when Des and his wife acquired a small filling station on the outskirts of Scarborough. By 1984 the couple had added a showroom and workshop to their operation. Current Managing Director Martin Wray joined the business in 1985 when the firm secured Honda as its first franchise. Ten years later we moved from Honda to Volkswagen and have gone from strength to strength ever since.

Entering our 20th year as one of the UKs premier Volkswagen retailers Des Winks Cars remains a family run dealership and we keep our traditions by genuinely doing our best to go the extra mile for our customers in a relaxed no pressure environment. Our new state of the art showroom boasts accommodation for 11 vehicles and we have ample space on the forecourt for a varied selection of new and used vehicles as well as plenty of room for customer parking. On site workshop facilities have vastly grown with additional ramps and qualified technicians to comfortably service more Volkswagen's and now Škodas.

Des Winks Cars now welcomes the Škoda brand to its site at Hopper Hill Road. We are open for Service, Warranty and Parts and 2015 will see the opening of a brand new showroom to display the expanding Škoda range.

Our Team look forward to welcoming you to Des Winks Cars Ltd.
